Wind Field

Description

WindField is the ORIGINAL and still the BEST. Live wind speed and direction on your Garmin data screen! Know exactly when to go for that KOM you've been targeting! Now with 100+ 5 star reviews! Thanks to everyone! I will make you happy or YOUR MONEY BACK!</p><p></p><p>Please Read - How to Install</p><p>This is a data field. </p><p>1) Download it via Garmin Connect or Garmin Express. </p><p>2) Add it on to your data screen just like speed or distance. It will be listed under Connect IQ then Wind</p>

What’s New

6.5.2</p><p>Pretty big rewrite under the covers. What you will notice: A pause icon when your garmin is paused. This means no weather connection will be made while paused and will save you a bit of battery life. A better no phone signal icon. Edge 130's and 520's now have status icons instead of either the 'no phone' message or nothing at all. Fixed the touch issue where you didn't get proper feedback when changing data sources. Optional fields 2 and 3 stay on the screen for weather alerts. Note: I'm pushing the boundary of what 130, 130plus and 520 devices can do. If you have one of these and get a crash, please contact me asap. Thanks everyone!</p>

Have been using this app for a year now, and am very happy with it Ran into a (non) issue lately, as it turned out my subscription was about to expire. Very responsive support within minutes! Thanks for all the efforts Scott, keep up the good work.

Excellent data field. Setup is easy and works great. Wind is a big part of where I ride, almost no hills and zero mountains, so wind is out single biggest challenge. Windfield allows me to plan rides, gauge efforts, and keep safe on every ride. It’s worth it!

This app is amazing! Love the granular way it can display a large variety of wind/weather data. Scott Beam, the developer, is super responsive to user needs as well. When issues arose with my initial usage, he said it sounded like my new Garmin Edge 830 was a bad apple, and that I should call Garmin for a warranty exchange. He was right!!! The new unit has been perfect, as the original one should have been. Thank you Scott!!!

glad the new unit worked out Rod! scary that i've worked enough with these devices now that I can tell the difference between a software bug and bad hardware

This app is totally worth the price! I use it with the Garmin 1030. I can look down at the display and say to myself "well, this is why I'm having so much trouble - there's a 14mph head wind!"

Developer Reply
May 17, 2020, scottbeam

ha, worse is when i look down when i'm feeling slow and see the 14 mph TAILWIND. Then I REALLY know it's me that really is slow

Super useful. This has helped me choosing routes many times!

Developer Reply
May 17, 2020, scottbeam

Thanks Mika! I'll tend to head into the headwind starting out and hope to catch the tailwind on the second half return. Sadly that doesn't always work out

This really should be a standard field on any cyclist's Garmin as its both interesting & useful to see what the wind speed is and where it is actually coming from. This data field is excellently executed and well worth the $5 subscription fee.

Hervorragendes Datenfeld, welches ich auf meinem Edge 830 nicht mehr missen möchte. Ich bin überrascht, wie präzise die Windstärke und Windrichtung angezeigt werden. Zum Vergleich habe ich die Daten mit mehreren Wetterdiensten auf meinem iPhone verglichen. Toll finde ich auch die Möglichkeit, innerhalb des Datenfeldes noch weitere Daten angezeigt zu bekommen (z.B. Regenwahrscheinlichkeit, Akkustand des Edge,...). Ein großes Lob auch an den Entwickler, welcher einen hervorragenden Support anbietet. Die Lizenzübertragung während der Laufzeit auf einen anderen Edge funktionierte völlig problemlos und innerhalb ein paar Stunden. Nach dem letzten Update vom 23.04.2020 hatte ich ein Problem mit der Windanzeige. Heute, nach ein paar Email mit dem Entwickler, wurde dieses Problem innerhalb weniger Stunden vom Entwickler gelöst. Daran könnten sich manch andere ein Beispiel nehmen.

This app is critical for any cyclist. I love not having to scroll through pages to get to wind information, and while I don't use the wind info to necessarily tailor my rides, I like to know the info so I can tactically plan my efforts to achieve good rides. The new functionality is great, and I like the option to view in beaufort scale, since I think that's a better representation of the force of the wind. Great job Scott!

Developer Reply

Thanks! Beaufort units were completely suggested by other users just like you. Glad everyone likes it. I had never heard of it before I got requests to add it.

This App is a must for anyone .i would happily pay more . Scotts support is fantastic too. I Have Time of day now which frees up another field for me Also using forecastr from Scott ,recommend it in conjunction ,free to those that pay . Couldn't be happier

The best data field available. It's so great to be able to know the current wind direction in relation to your direction. Perfect for time trial efforts. If you know you have a tail wind out, save yourself for the headwind back. Also great service. I noticed a bug and also had a suggestion to add time to the secondary data fields. Within a week an update was pushed with a fix and my feature request. AMAZING.

Spot on compared to a local NWS station and a regional/national airport's weather station. Local variances happen, sure, but this is really a good app. Thanks!

Excellent app. It really adds an important piece of information while biking as wind speed and direction really do matter a lot. I would like to see the app pull data from an apple watch and not just a phone as during triathlons I do not carry a phone. I also notice there are times when the information is not accurate but that is likely to be the information coming off of dark sky. Overall, it is a must-have app.

Developer Reply
April 18, 2020, scottbeam

thanks paul! if garmin ever adds the ability to connect to a watch instead of a phone, i will definitely support it. but the heavy work on that would be up to garmin to build. yes, as to darksky, i've got plans underway. stay tuned!

OUTSTANDING app and customer service that goes above and beyond. Amazing app that show real time wind speed, direction and more. I was having a few issues but Scott went above and beyond and ensure I understood setting and what I was seeing in the Garmin app itself. Please support this app and worth every penny.
