Marine weather forecasts - custom shading - major update

 We are pleased to announce a major update to our marine weather forecast visualization in the i-Boating app. The latest version support color shading marine weather forecasts into multiple zones based on safe /comfortable values customizable under settings.

For e.g. based on comfortable wave height setting, the map is color coded into multiple zones:

  • Safe zone: Transparent -> Green
  • Caution zone: Yellow
  • Danger Zone: Red
I have included below a screenshot where safe wave height is set to 3ft. Note how the red zone is much bigger. When I change it to 4.5 ft, the red zone shrinks.

As always the update is immediately available on Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android and Linux/Raspberry Pi (selective partners).
