After the installation of the plugin you will find a new entry in the AFTrack overlay button. There is a list of overlay plugins.

By activate the plugin you have three choices of view:
- show wind/current/wave only in wind info dialog for the map center - view in real time, when selected
- show the grib time steps, this can be done also with older files that are out of date.
At the moment you can view wind with currents or waves, if available in data file.
The plugin is not visible in the app launcher but you will see it in the system settings and inside AFTrack.
