I use the Master Mariner XM Wx (Weather Worx) program on my laptop
. I like the screen
size and easy operation. They recently came out with a Moblelink for the IPad
& Tablets. Unfortunately for us mariners, the only app providers are for the aviation community. The only marine app is provided by Earth NC, but the XM overlays are only for radar, no sea state, buoy reports, etc. the aviation apps provided far more info than the one marine app, but require a monthly subscription.
I had to return the MobileLink to Weather Worx an hope that someday they will have a better marine app.
