Good App


This a is good app which I use almost daily. It would be a great app if it include water temperature.

An Enormous Amount of Info, Well Laid Out


Windfinder Pro offers an enormous amount of detailed information, in an easily discernible format-- quite a trick on the iPhone's small screen. From my experience it is decidedly more accurate than your standard weather forecast. It has underestimated the afternoon onshore winds on the Maine coast a few times, but they're a pretty localized phenomena, so I am forgiving. It is worth the price for the forecast maps (GRIBs) alone. I check Windfinder before hoisting the mainsail every time.

Very helpful for cruise planning


We've been using Windfinder Pro for the first time this June to plan our northbound transit of Chesapeake Bay and the New Jersey Coast. We've found it a terrific help in showing real time buoy reports as well as models for future wind conditions. Our only complaint is that using the map to find stations is a little annoying in that we have to return to the home map to find each new station. Once we put all the stations in our Favorites List this was no longer a problem.
