    Many users have requested more ocean data.

    WEATHERTRACK 1.6.2 - Update May 10th 2014

      New:
    • The reference date of GRIB records is now displayed in the lower right corner, this can be turned off in "GRIB Options" in WeatherTrack settings. This helps avoiding to use old data. (user's request)
    • FNMOC replaced the central America wave model CENTAM with EQAM. The new model has a grid of 0.15°x0.15° and an interval of 3 hours for up to two days. The data layers available are the same as with CENTAM. FNMOC-CENTAM is not available any longer, use FNMOC-EQAM instead.

      Improved:
    • The Meteogram time axis labeling does now obey the iOS regional setting and copes better with time zones that are not on an integral hour offset from UTC. For instance time zones like Caracas or Teheran. (user's request)
      Improved in Route Weather:
    • Very short route meteograms are now stretched to at least fill the screen width. This improves readability.
    • Route meteogram: For short trips only, when multiple waypoints were reached in one GRIB time interval, only the last waypoint was shown. Now all reached waypoints are displayed.
    • Route weather: Make sure automatically given waypoint names in the route editor are unique.

      Fix:
    • While adding GRIB files the buttons to switch between online/offline map and tracking the GPS did not work under iOS 5.x. As opposed to the offline map, the online map of iOS 5 can not wrap around the date line, this made requesting GRIB files for this area very difficult.

     

    Thank you for letting us know what features you'd like to see. We'll do our best to include them in future updates!

      New:

      +++ GRIB Robot (in-app purchase) Useful for Satellite Phone or SSB users, especially when offshore.

      Most apps can only handle one file at a time per email request when using satellite communication. WeatherTrack's new feature GRIB Robot can handle multiple requests which are merged into one single file. This is unique on the entire iOS market.

      Instead of downloading the forecasts directly WeatherTrack sends all forecast requests via email to the GRIB robot (using for example a sat phone). The GRIB robot collects the multiple GRIB requests and merges all data which are sent to the user as email attachment. The file can be opened as usual in WeatherTrack and displayed as one convenient file only.

      Get all the weather data you need for a successful crossing.

      WeatherTrack understands the leading satellite-email programs in iOS. (compatible with xgate 2.0 )

    WEATHERTRACK 1.2 - Update June 2nd
    WEATHERTRACK, the Swiss Army Knife for Weather Enthusiasts has become

    "Exceptional", the "Best iOS-GRIB viewer", "Excellent" a "Great app - not only for sailors", "Professional", "Outstanding"
    - according to some of our international customer's reviews (please see also: www.weathertrack.us/reviews.html).

    New features are (for the GFS-model):
    • CAPE (Convective Available Potential Energy), an indicator for potentially severe weather. This feature helps to anticipate convective weather for avoiding areas with atmospheric instability. The higher the energy, the higher the chance of severe weather conditions (thunderstorms, tornado etc.). (www.WEATHERTRACK.us/CAPE.html)
    • Relative Humidity (%) - CAPE and Relative Humidity can be turned on in the GRIB parameters screen.
    • ZIP. The compressed GRIB files (web or email) can be opened directly in WEATHERTRACK (only the first GRIB file of an archive is used).
    • WEATHERTRACK is a GRIB-Viewer. GRIB (Gridded Binary) files are a standardized way to exchange forecast data in the form of computer files. As opposed to conventional weather apps, WEATHERTRACK provides interactive forecasts for any location in the world. The app delivers interactive weather maps on multiple data layers and turns your iPhone into a viewer for meteorological GRIB files.
    • WEATHERTRACK is a GRIB-Opener. You can choose to open GRIB file attachments from email messages in WEATHERTRACK. Or simply open GRIB files from arbitrary web pages in the iPhone web browser. This gives access to specialized weather forecasts, for example higher resolution data available from commercial subscription based services.
    Fix: Current arrow direction is fixed (was reversed since 1.1).
    WEATHERTRACK 1.1 - Update May 9th 2011
    New Design:WEATHERTRACK, the Swiss Army Knife for Weather Enthusiasts

    New Features have been added, many tools, such as

    - WEATHERTRACK bubble
    - Meteogram
    - Animation
    - Catalogue maker
    - help files as an in-app guide & videos (www.WEATHERTRACK.us/guide.html)

    • Animation
      •  Full screen animation of the weather in the selected location. Any data layer can now be animated, the Menu button in the data layer display has a new button that cycles through all available forecast dates. Animation speed can be adjusted: replay fast/slow, individually or automatically. Animations are kept for 30 days by default, number of days are adjustable as well.

    • Meteogram.
      • As opposed to the static meteogram designs of our competitors, WEATHERTRACK's meteogram is dynamic and flexible. The screen scrolls horizontally if there are more forecast intervals than fit on the screen and vertically if there are more layers.The meteogram shows each data layer in the GRIB file as a diagram in one screen, the x-axis is the forecast time and the y-axis the layer's value.

    • Track Weather
      • Upon downloading a GRIB file you can now specify speed and course. The forecast moves along in the given direction with the estimated distance.

    • Catalogue maker
      • You can name a GRIB file before downloading in the GRIB parameters screen. Alternatively you can rename a file by editing the name that is displayed in the Info layer about the GRIB file. The name is remembered, and if you refresh the GRIB file later, the name will be used and a number will be added as a suffix to make it unique.

    Fix: fixed cumulative layers like ACPCP and NCPCP as seen in Sailing Weather Services and Norwegian Metoffice forecasts.
    WEATHERTRACK 1.0.2 - Update April 26th 2011
    Hot fix: correction of waves direction.
    WEATHERTRACK 1.0.1 - Update March 23rd 2011
    Many improvements regarding usability have been made:

    • Not only the menu, but also all help files are available now in 7 languages. The help language is configurable in Settings.
    • The map has been fine tuned, the display of the resolution is optimized according to the available display space, this produces a better map display on the iPad.
    • Following our customers suggestions many users want to download a new GRIB file upon starting the app. Thus the map for selecting the GRIB area to be downloaded is shown. Cancel goes back to the list of files.
    • Interpolation can be turned off in Settings, causing values to be plotted on GRIB grid points only. The background coloring is affected by this setting as well.
    • Zoom factors for 300 and 500 nautical miles are included.
    • Wind barbs point now to the low as per meteorological convention.
    • The help button in the data display screen has been changed into a menu, giving easier access to the actions that were only available as double and triple taps before. Additionally the GRIB file can be re-downloaded anew from this menu.
    • Current was only displayed in knots. Now the speed setting is respected as well.
    • The blue bubble for the current GPS position is displayed correctly now on rotating the device.
    • Refresh of COAMPS works in Europe or east Pacific.
    • Changes to the UTC/Local setting are now immediately recognized as well as the file suffix .grib in addition to .grb.
    • Norwegian Metoffice North Europe region is displayed correctly.
