I use Nobeltec for navigation. It does all of this too. We use the SSB to download GRIBs and can overlay onto our computer and look at conditions along planned routes and set condition parameters etc.
As Kent said, the file cost about $7 to download on Iridium. It is faster using our SSB and free.
It’s a personal thing but, we are very anti-subscription.

The data comes compressed from Predict wind and has unlimited text and data in the plan.
I can download all the weather data now for free on SSB, However you can receive their route analysis reviewed every 12 hours . They show 4 routes with distance and time of travel included. You can specify what weather conditions you will sail in an they will show you the route. One route is based on NOAA another the Canadian weather service, I forgot where they get the other two from.

I have not tried this specific combo. We are not big fans of data over
