Just looked.

I have 3 Navionics apps:
•*UK-Holland
•*Med
•*French Atlantic coast

Only the French Atlantic coast one has a wind overlay (and very useful it looks). It was the last one downloaded (a few days back). Maybe I have to download the latest version of the others (and pay again) to get GRIBs?

Maybe, but be careful upgrading to UK and Holland - when I updated to v5.0 I lost the Light Characteristics.

I found this out about 1/2 a mile away from Browndown on Friday night!

Yes that "upgrade" was a backwards step as far as I am concerned. They seem to be relying on us to put the data in, :(

Yup - looks like another £14.99 to download the same charts - just so I can get the Grib data to overlay ...
Not that fussed! Might wait till next year when they'll integrate packman into it too! ;)

Get the Magic Seaweed iphone app. MS is a surfers web page but their grib data comes from the same GFS model that most others do.

It updated this morning again, I have full light details.

Thanks for the heads up.

Their second update in 24 hours, and it's fixed the object info issue.

Great thanks. Add this to the list of clever things I never new my phone did!

It even works sideways at East Head! :)

Yep, do you think they heard us?

Well I think it's been broken since Xmas. I reported it to them this week and it's fixed today. Coincidence? I think not.

Being a bear of little brain, please can someone confirm clearly to me that this thread is describing availability of weather overlays for the Navionics iPhone 4 charting application? I've followed the instructions posted here and I can't drill down to any weather overlay option. It doesn't exist on my version of the software - or does it?

Cheers, Brian.

Yes it is - and it's not available on my version - I've got UK-Holland (don't think that matters) version 4.4 GeoCore version 00.01.16
Found that by going to settings, scroll down and click "about"
