The program "WeatherInfoViewer” visualizes weather information received
by a WEATHERiNFOBOX from Mörer or downloaded from the Internet. This is
a special OEM development of Bonito. WeatherInfoViewer is a viewer, or
projector, which processes, sorts, classifies and visualizes the
received and downloaded weather information, according to their
properties. In is way, the complexity of the weather information is more
easily understood. It is important to note that this program processes
the weather information according to modern meteorology concepts, using
highly scientific Mesoscale aspects. However, this software does not
produce case-specific statements and forecasts for each weather
situation!! Therefore, we remind you once again to follow the advise of
all weather services around the world:
All weather information are without any guarantee!!!
The WeatherInfoViewer is available
in 2 versions:
1.)The Standard-Version - supports the standard features of the
WEATHERINFOBOX. In addition, it converts the received text messages to
graphical animations. It also records and draws barograph diagrams and
optionally downloads high resolution Weather data from MeteoServer via
2.)The Navigator-Version - offers (in addition to the Standard Version) the
ability to plan a Route on a map similar to a navigation map and it
colours the planned route according to the weather situation.
Both versions are delivered with 14-day trial access to the MeteoServer
Weather data via the Internet. In , both versions can be offered
directly with a 1-year Weather data link via the Internet.
The Navigator- and the Internet weather data- Options can be unlocked at
any time through the Internet. See the Prices for Options in the Price
list or online.
This manual describes the full version with all options. However, some
options are version-specific and will only be available if they are part
of the version you purchased or if you operate the appropriate
WEATHERiNFOBOX which receives the relevant data you expect to see in the
WeatherInfoViewer. For example, if you are using a WEATHERiNFOBOX with a
NAVTEX receiver only, you cannot expect to see any forecasts from the
German Weather Service or see any details based on SYNOP and RTTY data.
Similarly, if your WEATHERiNFOBOX does not have an air pressure sensor,
you will be unable to see any results, even if the Barometer diagrams
are presented. Therefore, please note the following list of useful
Not every WEATHERiNFOBOX receives NAVTEX, RTTY and SYNOP messages. For
example, the WIBE is the only receiving WeatherFax. Also not every
WEATHERiNFOBOX has a built in air pressure sensor.
It makes no sense to operate the WeatherInfoViewer only with a pure
Navtex receiver and without an air pressure sensor. In that case it
would be preferable to purchase the option for Internet weather data.
This version is very modern and useful and it will also compensate for
the lack of options of the receiver. Furthermore, the Internet can be
used with any mobile phone reception and many marinas provide nowadays
Wifi or W-LAN hotspots.
Hence the Internet Weather data option makes sense with any combination.
For the "Navigator" option, you have a simple chart plotter for your
GPS, However, the MeteoRoute function is only useful if additional
Internet data could be downloaded or RTTY weather forecasts can be
received from the DWD.
Which Weather Info Viewer functions
are available for which WEATHERiNFOBOX?
WIBD cannot be connected to a computer, so there is no point orderering
a Weather Info Viewer in this particular case.
WIB2, WIB2B, WIB2BX and WIB2D only receive NAVTEX-Messages, which will
be displayed under Text.
WIB1, WIB3, WIBE receive RTTY- and SYNOP Messages – they will be
displayed in Weather > RTTY/SYNOP and Text.
Only the WIBE can receive WeatherFax Images, which can be viewed and
improved under Images.
WIB2B, WIB2BX, WIB2D, WIB3 and WIBE, are fitted with an air pressure
sensor, the output of which is displayed as a diagram under Weather.
WIB1 doesn’t receive any NAVTEX-Messages.
Trying to display the Barograph option makes sense only if the
WEATHERiNFOBOX has a built in air pressure sensor. WIB1 and WIB2 have no
barograph, therefore no values will be displayed in the diagram under
the category Weather.
