Ratings and Reviews
As a the Captain of a 18,000 tonne ship that works in various areas of Australia I have found the app to be versatile enough to give me a good feel for expected conditions in my planned operating areas. While there are some holes in coverage for some aspects such as combined wave height, I have enough coverage of winds to allow me to interpolate the gaps. It does need mobile coverage to allow the functions to work, so I would not find it useful on an overseas transit.
When you need reliable accurate weather data
This program/app is just brilliant and more than just a weather forecaster. If you have friends and family like I do in cyclone prone countries where massive deaths have occurred you'll never ever be satisfied with any weather app unless it has built in early warning systems so that you can warn your loved ones of approaching danger.
During cyclone season in any country, you can download a grib file of a specific area and then study the details of the wind speed and pressure to see if cyclone conditions are developing just like a meteorologist!
Being able to do this gives me more peace of mind than just getting a rain or sun forecast and I now can rest assured that if my family are in danger I will have a good idea ahead of time and able to warn them.
We lost about 7 relatives in the Myanmar Cyclone Nargus because the people were not warned. Our family house was partially destroyed so we want to be alerted next time and with Weathertrack I can always have my finger on the pulse and let them know of any danger approaching.
Great weather forecast at low cost. Recommended.
WeatherTrack is a great app to select and display the weather gribs and make your own informed decision for planning, whether it be farming, sailing or a party next week. TV, Internet etc tend to only go 3 to 4 days ahead, but weathertrack can give you an accurate 7 day forecast, and a "rough" 14 day forecast, but be aware computer models can change, and are constantly updated.
Wind, rain, cloud cover are all displayed in an easy to visualise format, and the meteogram is excellent to see all parameters simultaneously.
See low pressure systems coming b4 weather beaureau start talking about them.
For sailors, subscribe to grib robot to get email gribs, and tide-tech integration is great.
Customer support from the Weathertrack team is excellent, immediate response to any problems you may have.
