Bracebridge, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) August 08, 2014

MuskokaTech; a leading provider of GPS Navigation, Tracking, and mapping software for mobile devices, today announced the availability of Precision Weather Forecasts Overlays for their line of PathAway Apps for mobile smartphones and tablets. Released now for the Android Edition, and coming soon to the iOS products on iPhone and iPad.

Weather features appear directly over existing maps in real-time, offering valuable information for navigation decision making. Included for free, to showcase this incredible new feature, are 12 hour Weather Forecast overlays for Wind Speed/Direction, Temperature and Precipitation in low resolution (1.0 degree).

The Theyr Premium subscription delivers 6 day weather and ocean forecasts using the NOAA Global Forecast System (GFS) 0.5 and 1.0 resolution data, High resolution NMM 0.1 and 0.045 degree data for North America, 0.04 degree West Europe and 0.08 degree Southern Hemisphere data. Data types include Wind Speed and Direction, Air Pressure and Temperature, Precipitation, Wave Height, and Sea Surface temperature.

“While the weather overlays are very useful for all outdoor GPS users, our marine and aviation users are especially excited about this feature to accompany their navigational needs,” says Scott Northmore, CEO at MuskokaTech, “Outdoor activities are directly affected by weather, so the inclusion of Weather information is a great benefit for real-time visualization for route planning purposes.”

"It's great to see our precision weather and ocean forecast data combined with PathAway applications,” says David Young, Managing Director, Kona Limited, “The combination is such a natural fit, we believe users will be very pleased, and at times even relieved that such detailed weather forecast information is instantly accessible via their favourite application."
