Wind Field

Description

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>

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.

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!
