About this app

The Offshore App allows you to seamlessly download multiple GRIB files for your coastal and offshore passages.

Quickly download and view GRIB files, weather routes, GMDSS maps and text forecasts, AIS data and satellite imagery.

Access all the world’s top ranking forecast models for reliable and accurate weather data, including ECMWF, SPIRE, UKMO, GFS and more. Our very own PWG & PWE models offer incredible accuracy and a record-breaking 1km resolution.

In addition to forecasts, the Offshore App also provides a suite of powerful marine tools to save you time and keep you safe at sea.

Weather Routing and Departure Planning is calculated in the PredictWind cloud at the highest resolution. The finished route is then sent back to your boat in an incredibly small file size, which is ideal for low bandwidth satellite and SSB connections.

The Offshore App works with Wi-Fi, mobile networks, and most satellite connections using an Iridium GO!, Globalstar or Optimizer device.

Tables: The ultimate dashboard for detailed analysis.

I like the app in that the files are small and can be downloaded with intermittent cell signal as we are traveling along the Southeast US coast. The usage is not always intuitive so I practice everyday so I do not forget how to look at different areas and adjust parameters. However, this is a valuable tool and I highly recommend it.

Comprehensive, but with a poor user interface. If one wants to know wind speed, direction, gusts and pressure at one spot, the screen layout is 5% menu, 5% useful information, and 90% distracting animation of wind moving across screen. This makes the weather information that I want from the app difficult to read.

The android app is really pathetic. The iPad app is fine, the computer app is fine, but across multiple devices for years the android app is buggy, freezes, quits, can't load features, etc. It's usable but barely. - pro subscriber
