  1. FYI Weather4D new apps available: https://blog.francis-fustier.fr/en/weather4d-fait-sa-revolution/
  2. Weather4D 2.0.21 comes with a fully renewed downloading charts system, a direct connection to get GRIB files with Iridium GO!™ (no more Saildocs request needed), and a number of new features and improvements. Have a look on Changelog and update the free iBook User Guide with new videos about charting download and GRIB download.
  3. Next release 2.0.18 in review in Apple AppStore will allow direct downloads of GRIB files with an Iridium GO! The app manage all connection process to its own servers. All forecast models will be available to download (GFS, NAM, COAMPS, GEM, WW3, etc.). Read more about the great new feature (as soon as the app will be published) on Weather4D Website.
  4. Weather4D 2.0.11 available today! Review in English.
  5. At this time satellite request is not yet featured in the app. it will done in 3d Q. Two methods will be implemented: first one same as Weather4D Pro, that is to say an automatic SailDocs request wrote in Outbox in Iridium Mail & Web app, ready to be sent through Optimizer gateway connected to Iridium satphone (or XGate app, ready to be sent through Optimizer gateway connected to all other satphones brands). This first method needs a manual action to send the mail. Second method will be a direct request from Weather4D 2.0 to Weather4D servers through Iridium GO! It will be the best and more friendly way.
  6. In Weather4D as Weather4D Pro low resolution models was already for free and high resolution by subscription. A look on the Comparative Table shows differences between apps. All models prediction (including GFS) are downloaded, controled, hosted and provided to final user by Weather4D's servers, 4 to 6 time a day depending such model. WRF models are calculated by Weather4D 4 time a day in order to be delivered. MyOcean currents models are raw data translated in GRIB1 4 time a day in order to be uploaded. Subscription is only to offset the cost of these services, nothing else. Anyway, happy you enjoy this powerful app
