I have used this apps for a couple of years. This year I upgraded to basic as we are cruising up the inside passage to Alaska. The basic package says it includes 1km resolution forecast maps; 9 saved forecast locations; wave, rain, cloud, isobar maps; wind observations; and forecast alerts. I don’t get most of that. After emailing the help desk they told me I only get one 1km resolution map, as in 1 and never another and I don’t get wave maps. Those are the only reasons I upgraded. There are several other apps that will give you the information they are giving for free. Skip if you want more detail or want to deal with an honest company. If I could post a picture of what they tell is included I would.
While at Maritme school, MERTS, in Astoria (Columbia River Entrance) I have been using the free version of Predict Wind. Now I am getting ready to sail from San Diego to Astoria I am planning on buying the 12 months version.
Use this app in conjunction with other apps before going offshore. Weeklong feature seems to be true to course. Too bad weatherman doesn’t use it.
It is taking me a little time to navigate this program, but I am liking it More and more as I work my way through it.
Invaluable app to get a heads up on the day. As accurate as anyone else and free. Great for looking ahead accurately (mostly). I am sure part art, and part science, saved my buddies and me today we saw your forecast and stayed in instead of going out and hitting bad conditions.
The free version gives you predictions with 8 km spatial resolution. Good enough for me to decide when to go paddleboarding for two hours or so. User interface completely intuitively. Heard of a public ocean weather service that even they make use of the predictWind forecasts.
I’m 60 an not a tech person but this site is so easy to use. We fish out of ORI in nc an it’s a dangerous inlet on a good day. So it’s very important to no wind direction an speed.
Just learning to use the product . Delivering a 49’ sailboat from fla to Newport May 1st and will be using it more
The App itself is another piece of fairly good information for offshore weather, not great for costal due to local land influences. However, the administrative billing errors are ubiquitous and continual. Over the course of my four year circumnavigation I have only had 1 instance where I got the service I paid for. Tech support quality has declined noticeably as Predicted Wind’s popularity has increased. I’m not sure why they can’t get it straight, but it does seem to be beyond their capabilities. So, weather info OK, frustrating time spent, very bad.
Hi Team, I am a new member to the Predict Wind family and struggling a bit with the route planning. I get two red and two blue routes. I find the tables are the only way to really pick a route but I have seen videos on YouTube where the user gets a recommended rout in yellow. Is this feature still available. Thanks,
