Iridium Go w/t Predict Wind vs. Garmin InReach Explorer or SE Plus

Hey guys!

Are any of you out there using a Garmin InReach (Explorer or SE+) for communication and/or weather monitoring?

How about the Iridium Go with the PredictWind Ap?

I'm trying to to a cost/benefit analysis of the two systems and I'd love to get some input if you wouldn't mind helping a poor fella out.

I'm on a tight budget and looking for a safe but inexpensive way to not die as I sail from New York to Thailand.

Thanks in advance for your input.

A.J.

P.S. Here's what I have so far on the subject:The Equipment See bottom of page.

Wow. No replies. I hope you made it safely. What did you end up using? I am considering the same options though not going nearly afar as you.
