Sorry, no specific IsatPhone Pro experience here, but I would really
appreciate hearing how this works for you. I've got some friends who are trying to choose between the Isatphone Pro and the Iridium
If you have your email working well, saildocs.com has a good assortment of GRIB sources, and also graphics downloads of what you might get via wfax. These are the ones I usually get via my Iridium
PYBA90.TIF (the eastern portion of the n pac surface analysis)
PWBI10.TIF (the 48-hour ne pac surface forecast)
PWBM99.TIF (the 96-hour ne pac forecast)
PWBE10.TIF (the 24-hour wind
/ wave forecast)
I request these by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org
with the body text "send PYBA90.TIF" (one file request per line.) You can also subscribe, which is what I usually do.
Dig onto the saildocs subscription details, you can schedule the delivery
for any given time (to suit your habits and the update schedule of the images
/ data you are requesting.) I can walk you through this is you like, but once you find the info it's not complicated. You can find on Saildocs the schedule details for the GFS forecast
computer run, which provides the GRIB data.
Saildocs shrinks and further compresses the images
, so the files are smaller than you would get if you were to take them directly from the NOAA sources.
