Re: Garmin vs Tacktick/Raymarine
Yes, my bad. 15 kB grib file covers about 15 degrees surface data both ways with 1 degree 'resolution' interval. Still, when it comes to a true satellite data transfer, it is a pretty large file, potentially 'gumming up' the communication bandwidth if lots of users chose such a service. I would think that inReach is capable of receiving such large files now, but it is maybe the format that is not part of the current programming in that device. I'm curious about what their current 'detailed' weather forecast looks like. I would be happy if grib files were automatically sent to the unit just once every 12 hours as part of the service plan.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
