Hi there. I own and use a fenix 5 so I can personally confirm that the widget does work (on both the fenix 5 and the D2 Bravo). If the widget is waiting for a position then that means it is trying to retrieve a GPS fix. Please ensure that your watch is paired to a mobile device and that you are in a good place where the watch is able to receive GPS signals (outdoors is best). Feel free to use the Contact Developer link if you continue to have problems.

Presque parfait : Il manque une information super utile pour moi : la Zp ! L'ajout d'un champ supplémentaire à la Zd serai parfait !!! Merci pour la prochaine mise à jour !

Crashes and reboots fenix3. I'm running the latest firmware (8.20). Tried many different aerodromes, different settings and both with and without Bluetooth on. Log file doesn't have much except errnum: 0x002 in ERR_LOG.TXT.

hace un tiempo funcionaba bien , ahora luego de un par de actualizaciones del software del fenix 3 dejo de funcionar, y cada vez q quiero abrir la aplicación se apaga y se vuelve a encender el reloj. Una pena

Hola. Sentimos que estés teniendo problemas. Si funcionaba, pero ahora no lo es, eso suena como un problema específico de su reloj, ya que hay muchos otros usuarios de F3. ¿Podrías usar el enlace "Contactar con el desarrollador / Contact Developer“ para ponerte en contacto conmigo para obtener más detalles y sugerencias para intentarlo? --- Hi there. Sorry that you are having issues. If it was working but now isn’t, that sounds like a problem specific to only your watch as there are lots of other F3 users. Could you please use the ‘Contact Developer’ link to contact me so I can get more details and give you some suggestions to try?

Update for Finland: Metar/Taf is now working perfectly also in Finland. Great and helpful widget, thanks.

November 15, 2016 | Version 0.8.9

Awesome widget. METAR exactly same as published. Unfortunately in Finland the most of the time it doesn't work. It says "IQ!" Does anyone else have a same issue? But when it works it's just great.

Hi there. The errors you are encountering are definitely not normal. I tried some airports in Finland today and it seemed to worked for me but I'd like to get things working for you if I can. Please use the "Contact Developer" link (and include an email address) with more information so I can try to track down the problem. Thanks!

Great widget!!. Very useful and super easy to set up. Thank you very much.

great app - thanks - looks fine and fast

August 18, 2016 | Version Works great. Thanks for taking the time to troubleshoot when Garmin changes the SDK and it breaks your code. I think many users are quick to blame the programmer when in fact it's a Garmin change that causes failures on some devices.

Great App. Works well. Thanks so much for your effort and help....................................................

Thanks for your very fast update. Works very well! Great App!

August 5, 2016 | Version 0.8.4

D2 Bravo: Great app, MUCH better than the one from Garmin. Really appreciate the multiple locations and the FULL TAF/METAR, including density altitude (the built in one is useless since the temperature sensor seems to read body temperature, not the obvious method of lifting temperature from the METAR)
