Re: Weather Routing--Predicted Wind.
I have played around with the free version and have not been impressed. It is simply based on GFS models and the wind and seas state info from Zygrib will give me the same info for free. Weatherunderground gives me radar, cloud cover, etc. Perhaps the paid version is better, but I haven't found a reason to want to pay for it when many of my current resources provide the same or more info.

Were you using it for the routing function or merely local predictions?
