I can pretty much second this post. One thing I really like is how well the Iridium Go downloads it and the deal they have put together for data if you buy the Iridium through them.

Also, the tracking feature is great.

Re: Perdictwind

Been using predict wind for a while now but just cancelled the subscription. Their own models seem far to sensitive more than a day out. The display is excellent though. Opencpn has an excellent grib / synoptic display as well so that's what usually gets used. With a load of data logging gfs is the main stay now as a model. Windy.com has 4 models to compare in Europe now if you have web access & Fastseas does a good job of routing, with email updates for offshore.

Re: Perdictwind

We use PredictWind as one of our services. Personally, I love the program. The professional version offers Hi-Res satellite images and the lite free version and the stand alone service offers a wide range of weather and ocean data. I use it on a daily basis and love the layout, the maps, and the overall feature rich program.
