Cruising Guides & Resources:
Navigation & Forecasting:
Predict Wind One of the leading providers for Weather Forecasting and Route planning, providing GRIB files for any area on the planet using PWG & PWE, ECMWF & GFS forecast models. Link this with an Iridium Go! Sat Phone and you have a great forecasting package. The Offshore package also provides vessel tracking, Satellite/SSB Connection, Compressed Files, GMDSS Forecasts and Satellite Imagery.
Sail Grib A great app for route planning, giving tides, forecasts and GRIB files for your region.
WindyTY We primarily use this to obtain up to 7-days wind speed and direction in local areas. It’s very easy to use and looks like Google Maps. For Cruisers this can also show currents and sea state.
iNavx Navigation software which provides AIS and Instrument overlay for NMEA.
Maverick Works in conjunction with Navionics to give Satellite views of your position – very handy when trying to navigate reefs and passages!
OvitalMap Similar to maverick, this will plot your location by GPS on Satellite imagery.
Sky Map Simply point to the Stars and it will tell you which Constellation you are looking at – a very helpful asset to Navigation
Melting Language Barriers:
Google Translate Another goodie! Simply talk into your phone and it will translate your words into your chosen language. Fantastic help for those times you are trying to get a Mauritian mechanic to design and make a part for your electrical winch!
