Iridium & X-Gate
How can we get GRIB files and surface analysis sent to our IRIDIUM/X-Gate account? And how can we transfer the files to the i-Pad for reading? Same question for route planning... we're off to the Galapagos and Marquesas. dominomarie

There are several ways to do that currently. If you have one of those IRIDIUM AxcessPoint WiFi devices, you can directly communicate via IRIDIUM and your iPad and Wifi. There is an IRIDIUM Mail app that can be used to receive mail, and you should be able to open attachments in WeatherTrack.
Alternatively you turn off the firewall in the AxcessPoint to allow WeatherTrack to directly download GRIB files via the Web.
If you only do IRIDIUM on your PC or Mac, then you will have to save the received GRIB files and transfer them to the iPad via an USB cable and either iTunes File Sharing or DiskAid (easier, free download here: http://www.digidna.net/diskaid).
To request GRIB file via Email, use the instructions here:
