Wind Field


Wind Field allows you to get real time wind speed and direction shown in your data screens during a workout. Data is gathered from the DarkSky api for your current latitude and longitude. The direction arrow combines the actual wind direction with your riding direction to show the perceived direction. So if you have a head wind, the arrow will be pointing toward you. In the case of a tail wind, the arrow will point forward. Of course this is all assuming you have your Garmin mounted on your stem or handlebar with a standard mount. If you have it in your jersey pocket, then it's not going to be very useful. ;)</p>

Amazing how much a simple data field can make my rides more enjoyable. I can always be sure I’m getting my tailwind on my rides back home.

Awesome Data Field! All road cyclist need this! Works very well and accuracy is actually really good. Scott is super fast to answer questions. A++

Great app! Just what I was looking for. I also have the Accuweather widget, but that takes eleven (!) clicks to get to. This is never more than a click or two away. Nice execution and worth the small fee.

Upgraded from the lite version. Works as advertised and the developer was super quick to help me find the code to register with (shows up on the Garmin data field itself after a few minutes in use).

March 27, 2018 | Version 1.0,1

Great! this is it what a road biker needs. I was not patient enough to wait for the activation code (takes a couple of minutes), scottbeam supported me immediately. Thanks!
