Powered by PredictWind's world leading marine weather forecasts, the free offshore app allows seamless downloading of multiple GRIB files for your coastal or offshore passage. The intuitive interface allows you to download and immediately view GRIB files, weather routes, GMDSS Text forecasts and Satellite Imagery. PredictWind's proprietary PWG and PWE marine weather forecast models are available along with the ECWMF and GFS models to provide the most accurate forecasts, available at the highest resolution.
Download and view animated weather forecasts, Weather Routing and Departure Planning for your next offshore passage. The Weather Routing & Departure Planning is calculated on the PredictWind server with the highest resolution forecast data, but the file size is incredibly small, making it ideal for transmission over low bandwidth Satellite & SSB connections.
Works with Wi-Fi, mobile networks, and most satellite connectons using the Iridium GO!, Globalstar, and Optimizer interface in the Offshore App.

PredictWind is A breakthrough Product!! - I crossed the Atlantic for the first time this summer (Oyster 57 from Tortola to Palma, Spain with a stop in the Azores), and without an outside weather routing service, relying solely on PredictWind (Pro Package). I used the PW Offshore APP on a MacBook Pro connected to an IridiumGo hotspot and downloaded an updated route and forecast at Noon and Midnight (Atlantic Standard Time) each day. I have much praise for this program and with the updates since this Summer, especially the inclusion of the “Euro Model” (European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts), I have even more confidence in PW’s accuracy. I highly recommend PredictWind.
Predict the Wind Offshore - Tutorials are very poor. This application is not intuitive and doesn’t appear to function. The sample route off the east coast remains on the chart and doesn’t seem to be able to be deleted. Setting routes is clunky and downloading GRIB data via e-mail does not appear to function. Poor information regarding using Iridium 9095A. Using the Iridium Go! doesn’t seem that much better. A very poor application not worth the time trying to get to function. Good idea with dismal execution.
