installed on my 1030. Constantly get an error -2 after the "Retrieving Image" message is on the screen for over 2 minutes. It says it is running version 3.2 I assume on the top. GPS Good is the message below. Would be great if this worked.

Never worked. Contacted Dev, never heard back. Uninstalled. Don't bother unless you're up for frustration.

Sorry it never worked for you. I responded to your email within 2 hours on May 21st with a couple additional questions to better understand your configuration. I am sorry it did not get to you, I never got any indication it bounced. If you want to try it again, I will be happy to try and troubleshoot.

Just bought a Garmin 1030 and was really looking forward to using this app but having issues trying to find a Radar source to use since Weather Underground shut off and Aeris doesn't appear to be any different. Can you provide some guidance. Such a technology leap from my Garmin 800 and these new apps look incredible and I could have really used it today with all the rain.

Aeris does provide a free 2 month developer option which is renewable. It does work with the app. Did you sign up using the link in the description? If so use the contact developer link an I will help troubleshoot.

Using on a Tactix Bravo. Have an API key and it's not worked once. Continuous -300 Errors.

Developer Reply
May 19, 2018, sabeard

Double check your key is entered correctly. The -300 error means the connection to the server is timing out. Either the key is invalis or youphone is loosing internet connection. If those two things don't help, then please use the contact developer link.

I just learned that I can write a new review each time you update. If you keep making this app better they're going to need to add stars. A+++++ Thank you so much. I will be donating, please make sure you keep making apps!

Weather Underground is no longer providing free weather API keys as part of its program. Obiviously, this creates issues

Developer Reply
May 16, 2018, sabeard

Yes it does. This is a new development in the last 24 hours. So I will be looking for another radar source. Anyone who already has a key can keep using it, but this leaves Aeris Weather as the only option for new users.

Good job on the app, thanks for your work. Sorry to see some people give it a bad rating without figuring out how to use it properly. Very neat indeed!

Jeez! Way too much bull to go through just to get it to work. C'mon!

Developer Reply

I am sorry you feel this way. Unfortunately based on the number of users, I either need to charge a monthly fee for the app or deal with the bull and keep the app free.

Cool idea, but app caused my Power Meter to freeze several times during a ride, after uninstallment of the app it works properly again.

Developer Reply
May 5, 2018, sabeard

Sorry to hear that you had problems with your power meter. The only thing the app is doing is downloading an image over the BT connection with the phone. I would suggest that you contact Garmin support and report the issue as it may be a bug in the device firmware.

Hi.Funktioniert diese App nur in den USA oder ist für Europa Global Satelite Zuständig.Und was bedeutet api secret key.Thanks forward Answer.

Developer Reply
April 30, 2018, sabeard

Je nach Wetterlage kann die App außerhalb der USA genutzt werden. Zum Beispiel verfügt Weather Underground über grundlegende Radardaten für den größten Teil Westeuropas, aber nur sehr wenige Kartendetails. Aeris Weather hat kein Radar, kann aber Satellitenbilder anzeigen. In jedem Fall wird der API-Schlüssel benötigt, um das Bild von der Wetterquelle zu erhalten. Sehen Sie diesen Link für Details, wie Sie die API-Schlüssel erhalten.

Excellent work. Just like the weather forecast. Het the API and its working great for me. Much appreciated. Only thing I would like to see is a working zoom. Other than that I have no complaints at all. This will come in very handy.

You can change the zoom setting in the application menu. How to access the menu varies by device. Check your manual for details.

Amazing work getting an app like this to work on a resource constrained platform like the FR235. Only request would be for to be turned into a data field (if this is possible) so that the radar could be checked whilst in the middle of an activity. As a cyclist I would happily contribute for functionality like this.

Developer Reply
January 12, 2018, sabeard

Thanks for the great suggestion, unfortunately data fields are prevented in the current CIQ platform from using the communications api's necessary to retrieve the radar image. For the watches, this makes the widget less useful. On the cycling devices, Edge series, the widget is accessible during an activity and can be called up when you want without affecting the activity.

have API key for WeatherUnderground and Aeris Weather. I have put both in on Manage Apps, and my Epix is pulling up. ERROR CODE: -300 0 That's after refreshing radar for Aeris and Weather

Developer Reply
January 10, 2018, sabeard

Error code -300 is a network timeout. Usually this means there is a problem with the data source server. Please use the contact developer link and I will be happy to help troubleshoot the app.

It appears i need to buy an API key. I'll use my phone for the radar if that is the case. But, nice concept

While you need to "buy" a key, the developer key is free and fine for personal use.

Please use the contact developer link to send an email. I will be happy to help troubleshoot. So far the things I have seen cause the app to crash is trying to download the image with a poor internet connection, or an incorrect API key.

Garmin 1030. Weather underground radar looking for Api key. How do you get one. Otherwise I can't get it to work

Developer Reply

To get your key, go to and login. You should see a tab for "Key Settings". This screen should show your key or allow you to generate a new one.

December 26, 2017 | Version 2.5-upd

The same problem as others. Getting error 2. Other apps works so it is not the connecrion between phone and watch

Developer Reply
December 26, 2017, sabeard

Please use the contact developer link to contact me via email to help troubleshoot. Note, that the image size is much larger than the data retrieved from other apps, thus the weather radar is more sensitive to an unstable connection between the phone and device. So it could still be the connection between the phone at watch. :-)

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
