It's a little bit of a hassle to create an account yada yada, but follow the directions and it will work. I set it up on a forerunner and Edge 820. Worked first try on each. Like!

I have this installed on both an Edge 820 and Fenix 5S+. When it is connected it works well and connection drops between phone and device is really a Garmin/phone issue not the developer's. I have a grandfathered WU API though which I prefer over Aeris. Fortunately was able to copy the WU API developer code from my old Edge to my new watch and it works well. :)

Setup an account with aeris put in the corresponding keys still says api are invalid

Tried on my 520 and 1000. Getting error code zero on both units using Aeris weather. Any suggestions?

Generally that means that the keys are not working or not entered correctly. If it has been 2 months, be sure to login and reactivate your developer account.

Have you read and followed the directions in the full app description? If not please do that first as you need an Aeris Weather account to make the radar work. If you have please use the contact developer link for troubleshooting assistance.

No bueno. Don't work on my vivoactive hr with aeris Id and secret code. Watch says aeris API keys missing or invalid. I checked that all characters there and correct. Lame.

Developer Reply

I am sorry it is not working. If you are still getting the API keys are missing or invalid, then please use the contact developer link so I can troubleshoot with you. The app is checking for a specific number of characters in each of the App ID and Secret keys. If Aeris has changed the length of their keys, I will need to make an update to the app once we work out what the fix is.

Nice app thanks :) Just one Q/S What's mean error code 300?

Developer Reply
September 24, 2018, sabeard

I suspect that your error code is -300, if so, then that means the network connection timed out during download. Probably some dropped connection from your cell provider in the middle of a download.

I recently downloaded the app for my Fenix 3 HR and after getting the keys and entering them in the settings and checking a few times that they were correct. I get the screen saying it's retrieving the image only to get an error code 403

Developer Reply

Is the error code 403 or -403. They are two different meanings. Please use the contact developer link and I will be happy to troubleshoot.

I can only use the Aeris weather b/c I heard you can no longer get a key for the other one. It takes a minute or more for the map to load on my brand new Edge Explore purchased 09022018 from REI. TRying to resize an existing image is also very slow to reload over a minute. I’m hoping something can be done with compression to help with the loading issue. It would also be great if the last image could be retained when you leave and come back to the widget. It looks like it reloads every time. Thanks. Mike

I have decided that I always want to trust that you have the latest available information, and with caching the image, I have not worked out a way that I am comfortable that you can trust the data is fresh. Thus a fresh download every time. When the image is resized everything you see besides the text is provided by the weather service thus a new download. As far as download speed, there is no option in the Connect IQ platform for any type of compression. The two main things which affect image load time is Cellular network download speed and the BT link between the phone and device. All of those are out of my control.

Leider wird der API Key nicht mehr zu Verfügung gestellt durch den Hersteller oder ich finde diesen nicht. Nach zwei Tagen suche auf der Web Seite des Hersteller, gebe ich heute nun auf. App habe ich gelöscht. Schade zwei Sterne von mir für den guten Garmin App Shop Auftritt.

Weather Underground, der Radarbilder für Deutschland liefert, hat im Mai die Ausgabe von API-Schlüsseln eingestellt. Aeris Weather unterstützt kein Radar in Deutschland, bietet aber Satellitenbilder. Entschuldigung, das Widget funktioniert nicht für dich.

Doesn’t work on Vivoactive HR, even though Garmin lists it as compatible. Just comes up with a red screen and some faint background text. Garmin should know better!

Please read the full description and follow the instructions to get a Aeris Weather key and install it via Garmin Connect Mobile. That should solve your problem. If it does not, please use the contact developer link and I will help figure out what is going on.

Vous devrez vous inscrire pour une clé de développeur et l'installer dans les paramètres. S'il vous plaît lire la description complète pour les instructions. Si vous avez toujours des problèmes, veuillez utiliser le lien du développeur de contact.

Works great on Forerunner 645 Music. My only request is that you remove a good chunk of the text that covers the radar, as it's extremely annoying. Thanks!

If you can not get am image to show up, how do you know it is an incorrect position? Please use the contact developer link and I will be happy to help troubleshoot.

Looks great. Have a Garmin Explore. For the Weather Radar I get an error code: 403.

Developer Reply

The edge explore is similar to the F5+ series when it comes to downloading images. It is a problem Garmin is working on and will likely fix in a future release of Garmin Connect Mobile. There is nothing for me to fix in my app.

Never mind last review, jumped through all the numerous hoops in the directions and got it working! Will see how it does.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
