Wind Field

Description

Live Wind data on your Garmin! Please note that this app requires a payment of $5 US per year.</p><p></p><p>Wind Field gives you real time wind speed and direction on your data screen during a workout. Wind information is based on 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>

What’s New

4.0.1</p><p>Major Update! New for Edge devices (not including the 520) Settings now allow you to optionally display temperature, humidity, uv, ozone and my new WindFactor value, which is the amount of headwind or tailwind you are feeling. New features also include ability to display in other units, including Beaufort, M/S and Knots. Weather alerts are optional as well, including a high wind alert at 20mph/32kmh. FIT data recording is also supported for the new WindFactor value.</p>

Literally the only IQ app I couldn't live without. Works perfectly (make sure the Garmin is connected to your phone) and Scott couldn't be more helpful. Excellent.

This is one of the best apps available. I like the fact that it shows temperature and humidity as well which is a function that the Garmin Explore lacks. Scott's fast replies are much appreciated!

Same here - can not access settings on my iphone / android phone. I am using edge 520. There is just uninstallation option

I need to update the description. The new settings are not available on the 520 or watches. They don’t have enough memory to run all the new features. Sorry! All the other edge devices are working including the 520 plus and the new 530 and 830.

Great data field. At my location the wind often gets stronger and stronger, so it's good to know what slows me down. But one question, at your announcement to 4.0.1 you wrote 'Settings now allow you to optionally display...' Sorry, I cannot find a settings dialog to change these kind of parameters, am I wrong? But again, great app (calling it a data field would be a way of understatement)!

Mr. Scott Beam has an app that i would not want to be without. I can better plan my training rides by knowing where to use my energy more effectively. He has been very useful in helping me sort out problems that Garmin should be able to resolve but does not.

I like this data field so much I purchased it twice! Once for my Edge 820 and again for my Fenix 5x+. Perfect for cycling, but I actually like to use it on my Fenix in the car while driving as well.

Works great, but the registration is a bit clunky. I had to set a single data field so it was large enough (Edge 820). Then wait 5 minutes for it to show the code so I could quickly snap a photo to reference while entering it on the site. This needs work. Otherwise excellent.

Thanks for the review! Garmin doesn’t have a way to pay thru their App Store so it’s up to each of app to figure out a way to accept payments. I’ll see what I can do to make it easier.

Works perfectly, what a great little trick to have on the Garmin. No more looking for flags or trees swaying. Thanks for making this

Very well done. Good for sailing and surfing too! However sailors are used to knots instead of mph. Would be great to get this customizable one day...

thanks for the review! i do have a version that shows in Beaufort units that some sailors have asked for, working on adding knots to it in the future. https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/f10bb6ea-2265-4ca4-bf1f-289dce449dc7

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.

A great app for the wind direction challenged. I’ve been waiting for an app like this and Scott delivered!

Something that works as promised is always great. I went with the paid and happily did so. FYI, I'm using it on a edge 1030 with no issues. Thank you Scott

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).

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!

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
