I think Campbell is right, they are both slow compared to what we expect at home these days.
Th big difference is that the Iridium GO can only do email sourced gribs etc NOT a true 'internet' source.

You can see what that's like at home by searching "email sourced weather gribs", there are several. Most popular in the US is 'Saildocs'.  Once you see how the email sourced grib work you can try it for other items like Yellowbrick

This field is changing quickly so you may find it will work for you as well.  There are a couple new features in Exp that facilitate working with these email servers look for tic boxes for Saildocs or Airmail on the WXData>Saildocs and Sai>l YB Tracking buttons

Hope this helps,
Ernie

If you're looking for a less robust system, that only allows emailed grib and some other files, you can look into the Iridium GO with the Airmail App on the PC.  I'm on a boat to Bermuda this year with that setup but because of trees in my yard can't really wring it out at home. Seems promising though for those looking for a less expensive solution than a nice Fleet Broadband setup.

I spoke too soon...I don't get any WX from the Exp WX selection.
Maybe Nick can explain?

Simon,
One mistake that is easy to make is the Optimize Route start date.
Go to the Optimal ribbon and click settings...top right hand corner
Make sure you're starting the route within the start and end time of your WX

Baltic,
Just for grins set your boat speed (Bsp) at 99.0, slide the "Polar BS" off, zoom in and see if the boat is moving.

With a chart zoomed out to show a large part of the ocean it's hard to see movement.

Nav,
1/3. The file that is out at say https://yb.tl/c6002020-expedition.txt is only the latest snapshot of the fleet.
In a 'Tracker' like Exp it gets saved with an extension of the date/time.  So when you have tracked  a race from start to finish you can go back in time, in the tracker.  But if you start downloading after the race has finished the data is fixed.  Otherwise the file would be as you say huge.  YB already has lots of files out there on their server as you can see at https://yb.tl/links/C6002020 for every event. Multiplying that by each sample time would be pretty big.
2. a Nick question
