This is an excellent widget with functional options that make sense.

No radar information in Europe. Just blank map.

The default radar source does not support most of Europe. If you switch the radar source to RainViewer, all of Europe is covered. Open the menu to change the radar source.

I downloaded this a few years ago with no luck. I decided to try it again and I am so excited it works. I work at a school and when I’m outside with the kids I cant always have my phone out to check the radar. Thank you so much!!!

Works great on Garmin 520. Only thing is to find the widget on Garmin device, because widget is not shown as a data-field - something tricky...

8. oktober 2020 | Version 4.27

I'm not sure why others are having problems, or saying it never works. I tried this widget when it was first released and it works perfectly for me. I work outdoors and use it all the time to see if the rain is coming. It's kept me dry on several occasions. Great work.

De app werkt vrij goed op mijn Fenix 5s Plus en heeft verschillende mogelijkheden om de weergave in te stellen zoals : inzoomen, kaarten, kleuren en animaties. Het duurt wel een aantal seconden voor de kaart wordt ingelezen op basis van de huidige positie.

It works pretty well unless you’re under tree cover on the Tactix Delta. My biggest issue is we don’t carry our cell phones when in the field so it’s pointless to have it for operations or training and that is where I need it.

I understand your issue. Until the watches have a way to connect to the internet without the phone, this is going to be a limitation. Without internet access, it is not possible to get live weather data.

31. august 2020 | Version 4.26

Installed it on my Edge 1030 Plus today. I waited until my 1030 was booted and found GPS signal before I installed it. It came up fine the first time without any configuration. - very easy. It even has animation to show how the rain is moving. I will use it for the trial period to see how much I use it but initial look is very good. I could have used it this past weekend when I got caught in the rain.

27. august 2020 | Version 4.26

It loads forever

24. august 2020 | Version 4.26

First of all, if so many people react with "its not working" it may be an idea to add a brief description of how to get this work. An app needs to be easy to use ! Second, i got it working after trying for an hour, way to long, but ok, i gave it a go. It now works, but activating the App on my Phone results in loading a map which takes like 5 minutes. After clicking it away and trying again, its the same 5 minutes. I guess and hope this app may work better in the US. Next i saved my current position. Reactivating the app gives again the "looking for position" message. Thanks for trying, but until this works more smoothly i am not gonna use it :-) Its just way to slow. Cheers.

Thank you for the detailed review. I would be interested if you could send me via the contact developer link some more info on what I can specifically change to make the instructions more clear or the app run more smoothly. For new a brand new install within the 21 day trial, the only thing that can go wrong is not getting the GPS location or a failed internet connection. The first is already described in the first bullet under the known behaviors section of the description. The second should be clear by the statement that the internet connection is required. I don't think users read that far. :-) The download times are dependent on the size of the image and the speed of the phone's internet connection. The larger the screen resolution, such as the venu can take between 45-60 seconds to download. I have done everything I can to minimize the image size to speed things up, but the BLE connection is the limiting factor which I have minimal control over. I will add a note about using saved position. Once enabled, it will grab a fresh position and then save it for future use. When enabled, please wait for a new radar image before exiting. :-)

Great widget! Easy to use. I did have a problem but instead of moaning via a post like some people I contacted the developer direct via garmin app and got super quick reply and problem got solved. Partly user error on my behalf but nevertheless the developer still respond quickly and very helpfully. Defo worth the 3$.

Looks good so far, I had to allow GPS to access and also it is good to have connect app running. No issues, good work developer. I subscribed for a year.

The GPS is needed to find your initial location. After you get a radar image you can enter the menu and save the position to use for future use. Once you enable use saved position, then you can manually refresh your location when needed via the menu. Thanks for the subscription.

Try it again. I had to solve a problem with the server encoding the images. It should be fixed now.

Desværre, der er ingen statistikker endnu.
