Iridium GO! exec App

The Iridium GO! exec App is for iOS and Android devices and includes software updates for the Iridium GO! exec device.

PredictWind Offshore App

The PredictWind Offshore App is for iOS, Android, Mac & PC. This App downloads GRIB files, weather routing, departure planning and all the great PredictWind features. It connects directly to the Iridium GO! exec for fast and easy direct downloads . The PredictWind App uses too much data, and is not suitable for use on the Iridium GO! exec. The PredictWind Offshore App compresses all weather data, so it is by far the most efficient way to download data.

Learn More and Download the PredictWind Offshore App


  • When your computer/ device is connected to the Iridium GO! exec Wi-Fi, the PredictWind Offshore App will automatically open the GO! exec firewall from an 'All Blocked' profile, and allow you to download weather data once you select 'Iridium GO! exec' as the download method. You do NOT need to enable an 'all open' profile to use the Offshore App.

  • DO NOT enable an ADMIN PIN when setting up the Iridium GO! exec. If you have the admin pin enabled, the Offshore App will not be able to download GRIB files.
