Wind speed with FSGRW

Recommended Posts

Any reason why the wind speed is not the same in Pilot2ATC with FSGRW. The rest of the information matches perfectly?

The wind speed is  the same...5 kts.   The wind direction is different because METARs report True direction and ATIS/Tower/etc. report wind in Magnetic.  The reports in P2A are given in Magnetic to reduce the confusion between what's displayed and what is reported by tower.  If you check the METAR display in P2A's Airport Info panel, you'll see it should match.
