Weather Radar Widget - w/Free 21 Day Trial

Description

If you have problems, use the contact developer link before leaving a review (PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IN THE MESSAGE IF YOU WANT A RESPONSE). Make sure you have updated to the latest version!</p><p>Every new device install will get a free 21 day full function trial to make sure the widget will work on your device and in your area. This is a registered app and requires a nominal ($3USD) annual subscription to operate after the trial is complete. The first time the widget is started on a device, the trial window will be locked and will not change. This widget will download the current radar image from either AerisWeather or RainViewer and display it on the screen based on the device’s position. It requires a connection to your phone and is dependent on a connection to the internet and being able to get a GPS location. It is best to run while outside the first time, then you can save your position for future use. </p>

I have downloaded the widget and paid the $3 subscription fee. App defaults to "Phone connection required" but the phone is connected to the S62 watch. Unclear how to resolve.

It is not possible to troubleshoot this type of issue in a review. Please use the contact developer link and we can work through a solution.

Just renewed again. One of the best apps for the Garmin watch. I rely on this anytime there is storm activity in my area. It is perfect for a quick update when I am bicycling or tidings my motorcycle. It is a great bargain and works well.

Incredible app. Shows animation for rain clouds. Works in Australia. The map is great. Would it be possible to have an option to turn off the weather layer, eg by pressing a button to take a peek at the map?

There was a problem in the Fenix 6 Pro family of devices that was fixed in version 21. If you have registered but still see Trial on the screen, please update to the latest device FW.

I can't put 0 star. This app is totally useless, despite fois gps position it indicate no rain but I'm totally wet and forecast say it will rain all day but nothing appear on that widget. So don't loose your time and watch through the window if there are clouds... will delete it now to free some space.. shame

In the menu there are two radar sources available as neither provide coverage for the entire globe. Unless you are in Africa, chances are the alternate source (RainViewer) will have radar for your location.

Está genial y la precisión del radar es muy alta, vale la pena pagar lo que cuesta. Hago alpinismo y para mí se ha convertido en indispensable (siempre que haya un mínimo de cobertura, claro). Como idea de mejora estaría genial quepermitiese visualizar una previsión de las precipitaciones basándose, por ejemplo, en el mapa de precipitaciones de meteoblue.

So far not so good, hope I can change the review tho, doesn’t seem to show weather in South Africa ?

Developer Reply

Unfortunately neither radar source I have available provide any rain coverage for most of Africa. So the options for South Africa are very limited in a format that will work on the Garmin Devices.

The widget should work on the GPSMAP 66st. If you use the contract developer link, I would be happy to help troubleshoot.

Error code: -5, keeps showing on Fenix 6x pro?

Developer Reply
September 18, 2021, sabeard

Try to reboot your watch then try the widget again. That error code indicates that something has goon wrong with the BT link between the watch and phone an usually will continue until the link is broken and remade.

Hi, I am using trail version. It open in a square display in fr 245. So corner screen is blank. Will it use full screen after purchasing?

Developer Reply
August 25, 2021, sabeard

What you see in the trial is exactly what you will see after registering. The issue is several devices have memory limits which prevent the ability to download a full screen image. Pretty much non music devices can't go full screen.

Very nice weather app for my Garmin Tactix Delta Solar. Works great and it will come in very handy when I am out camping. Nice to know when you may have bad weather and or even good weather coming in and now I can see it right on my wrist. Zoom option is good. There are 5 levels. There are two radar sources to choose from. You have a few Image types and can able or disable animation, refresh position, use live position and even hide labels. WoW very nice!

The default radar source has limited coverage in Germany, however in the widget menu you can select RainViewer as the data source which supports all of Europe.

This is still the best radar program out there,superb extensive menu system, moving animation to see how fast and from which direction its coming from, always working... Perfectly. : -)

You change the zoom level from the widget menu. You can access then menu from the device menu button or the select button. Please use the contact developer link if you have any problems or other questions.

Robert E Basile

It works meh on an Edge 1030 plus. Map loading is measured in minutes. Gives error messages when maps load or are zoomed 30% of the time. Three bucks to the developer is worth it but I don't use the widget enough to renew next year unless there are major improvements.

Developer Reply
June 21, 2021, sabeard

Robert, I understand your concerns and I keep looking for things I can do to make it better. So far it appears the Edge x30 devices use the BLE link instead of the full BT link that was used on the Edge 1000. The result is slower download speeds for the radar image between the phone and device. Because the download takes longer, there is a higher chance that any interruption during the download will cause an error. On my Edge 830, I have noticed the behavior more with the newer software. I wish there was more I could do, but so far it appears to be a device FW issue compounded by the size of the image to fill the screen.

Aeris source completely no data RainViewer quite not accurate any chance can see AccuWeather radar?

Developer Reply
June 21, 2021, sabeard

Unfortunately AccuWeather's radar API is not compatible with custom size images needed for the Garmin devices. So far only AerisWeather and RainViewer have compatible radar APIs. I do keep looking but the options are limited.

Why pay for something on your watch when it has to connect to your phone? That is just stupid. Save your watch battery.

Developer Reply
May 23, 2021, sabeard

It is an option for times when the phone may not be easily accessible, such as on the bike when the phone is put safely away in the saddle bag. If it adds value, then subscribe. If not, thanks for trying it out.

It's definitely worth the money and it works very good on my Garmin Tactix Delta Solar and even better, because of the better display, on my Garmin GPS Map 66sr

It's definitely worth the money and it works fine on my Garmin Tactix Delta Solar. However since I don't have PayPal (or want to have), I have to skip this app.
