'Cause I can't find complaints about the IS 20 windmeter on this forum, am I the only one with this problem? The LCD display turns black when the sun is shining on it, even after a few minutes. As soon as the sun isn't shining directly on the meter, the lcd comes back in a normal state. Is this just mine or does every IS 20 wind has the same problem? (then there is no need to search for a new one).

I have same problem and a guess to the reason.

BTW. Just in case you didn't know. Search on this forum is set to last six month by default.
You should change this before searching anything.

The needle in Simrad IS20 Wind can get loose on its axle.
The fix is to press hard on the glass on the intrument and then it gets fixed.
But this pressure might also damage the LCD.
Mine does the same. When sailing with the sun in from behind it will turn dark. I only use it for wind strength meassurent. So in this situation I will put on the cover.
With the B&G Zeus3 I have wind/tach angles there. Just need to set the Zeus3 to show wind strength also.
Infact the it was a easy swap from Simrad cx33 to Zeus3. I only needed a converter-cable. The Zeus3 connects to all the other instruments and it even did an firmware update of the instruments that needed that.
I plan to skip the IS20 wind as this forum has lots of posts with issues.

There are many posts about the IS20 Wind. Here's a thread  I started about how to find an alternative to the IS20 display in 2011. I had found that there was no remedy to the problem with the instrument showing the wrong wind angle.

After much research I replaced the display with Furuno's wind instrument.

Please read my last five comments as one post! I got the message that my post needed to be moderated and I have just spent ages to find out what in my post needed supervision. I then just tried to slice it down to parts to see where it went wrong and got stuck with the message that spamming is not allowed!
