Amazing Weather Details at your Fingertips. Worldwide.
"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)

Best marine weather
We have been using this app for the last few years whilst travelling on our boat. We started in California and sailed down the Pacific Coast of Mexico into the sea of Cortes then continued stopping many times along the way, down the Central American coast to Panama, through the canal and into the Caribbean and up the east coast of the USA as far as South Carolina. It has consistently given us accurate and reliable forecasts.
Now cruising the Mediterranean and still the best!
Does not work with Iridium GO !
No help available either.
