What’s New

1.0.12 Now a server calculates orbit and provides calc output to the watch to ensure quicker display when opening the widget and getting new orbit data.

I'm giving it 1 star becasue I can't get it to work on Vivoactive 3. I have it set to the lowest map points (50), slowest refresh rate (15 minutes), tried both flat/globe and I turned on the Force Low Resolution world. I will gladly give it a fair review if I can get it to work.

:( app just stopped working when I updated from 9.2 to 10.0 on my fenix 5X. Pls any help ?

22 July 2018 | Version 1.0.10

#-Stars (Neutral Rating Until Resolution) Seems to "work" (no error messages) on my EDGE 1000, However, nothing is displayed other than the 3-bar Menu button and the Back button. Blank screen, no map or ISS location. When I open the Menu and choose "Next Passes" I see the error message "Comm error -104". I also see this error when I select "Who Is UP". I have WiFi enabled and there is a connection (the EDGE reports a WiFi connection and I can see the device in my router log). Activities routinely upload using WiFi so I know the EDGE has an Internet connection. What am I doing wrong... what am I misunderstanding?

Please contact me with "contact developer" link. This way you can send me video/picture of the screen and data log so I can understand what goes wrong. It seems to be a communication issue, which is very strange because it works perfect on the Fenix 5. Maybe the Edge needs a different program. Please contact me!

Using my son's account to test with the Vivoactive hr:::: Using 350 points will display the IQ error screen on app start. 300 points will work for a while but then the IQ screen will appear. 250 points with 8 minutes works perfectly, with all options and screens. So now working perfectly with the Vivoactive great running 4.30 software. All the best. Samuel lawrence.

Superb update!!! As well as all the extra features, I can now choose my own level of detail within GC that works with my watch. For instance using 350 points on the globe would give me the IQ error screen on app start, where as with 300 points selected would be fine, and I'll have full use of the app. This seems to be a great solution to watch memory limitations. Max I can run with full use of the app is: 300 points with maximum number of passes. ( Fenix 5x Beta software 7.91) Thankyou very much for all your continuing development! All the best, Sam.

Hi! Thanks for feedback. It's a tough app to make due to performance limitation, which is different on every device and I can only test on my D2 Charlie. To solve your problem, could you try to go in the widget settings (on your phone / Connect app / Widgets / ISS Widget / Settings). - Set Number of map points to around 50 or 100 (less land will be displayed) - Set Minutes between orbits to 15 (the orbit will be displayed in a very approximate manner) This should help, and then you can improve those settings until you reach the limit. Unfortunately, I haven't found a better way yet! Let me know your results!

Dos not work in my 5x. IQ problem.

I updated the app to fix the issue. Try again now and let me know if it works.

Would love to use it but it's not working on my Vivoactive 3 or husband's Vivoactive HR :(

Noted. I also see an error on my end. It is proving quite difficult to display so much complexity (world in 3D projection, orbits) with so little processing power. But I am confident it will work - just requires a bit more work on my end. If you are willing to test the app on your specific device, contact me with "Contact Developer" link. This way, I can send you the file before publishing to ensure it works on your device too. So far, I can only test on my D2 Charlie.

This is now fully working with my Fenix 5x latest public software release 7.10. Thankyou for all the hard work!! Features: Displays your current location! You can scroll the earth with "start" button, for a different angled view.(earth will turn automatically by itself to track iss) Accurate positioning (checked with online tracking software!) Orbital path! Will track iss with internet conection, or WITHOUT !! using your algorithms(brilliant) Really enjoying this very useful and unique exciting widget! All the best, Sam.

This is going to be one awsome widget! (Had it working at times) It will be extremely handy to be able to locate and view ISS especially if used in conjunction with your other widgets,(space x and solor system live) I love what your doing in the IQ store,and i really like the new trajectory info page and countdown in Space x! All the best, Sam. Fenix 5x 6.0

I agree this is awesome!!! Good luck.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
