Streamlined and modern-looking interface
Considering its capabilities that deliver some of the most accurate forecasts, when you first lay your eye upon the app’s interface you’ll be in for quite a surprise. The interface is simplistic and very well thought-out, boasting a modern look and feel as well as a neatly-organized layout.
There are three main elements that are worth discussing, a View panel on the right side of the main window, an appropriately-named Waypoints panel on the right and a bottom toolbar that allows you to toggle between Wind, Rain, Cloud, Air Temp, Swell and Sea Temp maps.
You don’t have to have a masters degree in marine weather forecast in order to access the app’s full potential
Setting up the waypoints is relatively straightforward as you are only required to set the exact GPS coordinates for the departure and the destination.
Accessing the app’s main features (GRIB High Resolution, GRIB Offshore, Currents, Weather Routing, Departure Planning, Destination Forecast, GMDSS Forecasts and Satellite Imagery) from the aforementioned left-sided panel is also a hassle-free experience but please note that you first need to download sets of information for each section.
