Adrena integrates interfaces with Saildocs and GreatCircle to allow Grib files request by email from the navigation software. The interfaces simply format a text that is sent by email and that indicates the geographical area and the data to be included in the grib.
In reply to the request, an email with the GRIB file attached is sent.
Thanks to this solution, it is possible to manage Internet access restrictions at sea and to load weather forecast data with a satellite phone at a lower cost.
Grib files request by email with Saildocs

Great Circle service does not provide all the data for free. In any case, it is necessary to register on their website and to give information about the registration in Adrena.
