To Set North on Wind Vane

Wind Vane Nut Should Point North

Wind Vane screw Should Point North – This is South

North is the screw hole on the base (without the tab).

On newer units, there is a tiny little S near the top of the round base of the wind vane and a small N on the other side.

Another way you can calculate it is hand setting the wind vane to north,  reading from the software, and marking the base to indicate North.
If you accidentally mount it incorrectly, you can always adjust the direction in software.
