Is it possible to get the data over SSB and onto the iPad?
Good to hear!

Yes, it is possible to get the data over SSB and onto the iPad.

This is how it works: Export/Import GRIB files to/from your Computer via iTunes

You can use the iTunes application on your desktop computer to manage GRIB files displayed by the WeatherTrack app. Connect your iPhone to iTunes. You do not need to sync, but look at the left side of your screen and click the device. Now go up to the title line, choose apps and scroll all the apps down until you see the file sharing section. Look for WeatherTrack in the list of apps offering file sharing. Click on this app and in the list of documents to the right all downloaded GRIB files will show up. Choose the one you want and click “add” or “save to”.

You can also drag and drop files from here, no sync needed. Simply click on the WeatherTrack icon in the app section of iTunes and you see the list of files from WeatherTrack. Again, you can delete files, add files from your desktop computer and copy files downloaded using WeatherTrack to your computer simply by drag and drop.

So to share files with the PC connected to your SSB, connect the iPad using the USB cable, and copy the attachments you received via Airmail to the iPad and open in WeatherTrack

(this was discussed here as well: WEATHERTRACK Support)

Does this answer your question?
