is reliable, it just runs.
"An incredibly comprehensive weather app - it accesses many data models from different agencies and provides worldwide coverage. The GRIB layers include wind, precipitation, wave height/direction/period, ocean and tidal currents, air and sea temps, relative humidity and more. WeatherTrack works offline, and GRIB files can be downloaded through an SSB connection, an Iridium AxcessPoint or as an email attachment and opened in the app." (App of the month! in Cruisingworld)

Amazing Weather Details at your Fingertips. Worldwide.
Forecasts for Professionals and Amateurs...
"I am a meteorologist serving in the armed forces. I forecast below 5000 ft for search and rescue Sea King helicopters in Scotland, UK. Having purchased this some time ago for emergency use I was astounded to find how good this application actually was after opening it up earlier today. It's simple to design your own forecast area maps and download my essential data sets from various models...Great app."

WeatherTrack, the Swiss Army Knife for Weather Enthusiasts! One app - many tools
What's New in Version 1.6.0
Many users have requested a more detailed online map next to the offline chart. On the occasion of WeatherTrack's anniversary of three successful years we would like to thank our users for choosing WeatherTrack and staying with us. With this update you get this new feature: the requested online map including hybride, satellite and standard view.
• For selecting the area of interest you can choose between the existing offline or the new online map including hybride, satellite and standard view.
• New weather data from the Turkish Meteorological Service are available in the Weather Online section.
• The color schemes for the GRIB display can be modified using a configuration file. Details can be found on the [WeatherTrack web site](http://www.weathertrack.us/colors.html).
• Tapping on the bubble in the satellite view uses now the current GPS coordinate.
• Tapping on a location in the satellite view displays the nearest city, not the largest city nearby.
• The watermarked date/time in the animation is now the same local timezone as the button in the GRIB display.
• Layout. Some views (for example Weather Online) had content under the status bar.
• Stability under low memory situations under iOS 5 has been improved.
Thank you for letting us know what features you'd like to see. We'll do our best to include them in future updates!
This app is the perfect tool for figuring out your passage's weather. I really like how you can plot where in the grib you will be.
I used it recently on a 500 mile single-handed passage right through the Caribbean and I was able to correctly predict when to reef .
Awesome app. Thanks!
