Very helpful when you ride in windy areas. It's motivating for me. And very useful additional information, I chose rain forecast and UV index. It all works great and the support is awesome.

WRONG!!!!! I’m riding north and according to the app I should have a 10 mph sse tailwind but apparently no one told the flags that were flying from the nnw.... I have video showing this!

did you try one of the other weather sources my app supports? not all are perfect depending on where you live. also you are on the free version, so after the trial ends, the data can become stale and lose accuracy. unfortunately, if the data isn't great, you can only blame the weather provider.

Works great!

Love the app. Sooooo worth 5 bucks a year. Motivates the sh** out of me to see the wind direction and speed.

The App is the one necessity when riding, hiking or running. Very flexible and customizable. I can’t ride without it. Fantastic customer service from the developer. Wind speed, direction, chance of precipitation and more. Multiple weather sources supported. Worth every penny.

March 1, 2021 | Version 7.4.0

Great app!! Instant high quality support from the developer even on Sunday!! Many thanks Scott!!

February 23, 2021 | Version 7.4.0

The app is good, and the support is even better. One of the data fields wasn’t displaying correctly, and the developer responded quickly to address.

Game changer app. Very clear app for tracking wind speed and direction in real time. When you are exploring new areas and making game time decisions about your route it is terrific to have this info at the ready. Furthermore, I had a tech support question and Scott replied almost before I sent the email. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Best thing since slice bread Sweet little app! Don't let the word little fool you! This app is huge in features packed with tons of information! A must for every cyclist! It actually has improved my cycling cuz when there is a tailwind, I know coming back I'll have a headwind so I adjust my riding style to save energy for the return trip. This works the opposite when I've a headwind, I know the sweet reward when I'm coming back it will easy peasy lemon squeezy. The exception is Iona Beach! You get headwind both ways! I just upgraded to the PRO version and can't wait to test all other goodies packed in this app by Scott Beam! Way to go buddy! Happy riding everyone and stay safe.

Simply awesome. Most helpful data field on my device!

This App is incredible! I have had several version of the App and definitely recommend the PRO Version. Data is accurate and dependable. Now with the PRO Version you can have an amazing amount of data flexibility along with choosing how you want it displayed (size, fields, etc.). One of the best aspects of this App is the support. I have communicated with Scott Beam and he has been open to user input, provides timely responses and a great guy. Worth every penny! Rob B.

Excellent app. Make it part of your ride every time. Worth the extra $$ for Pro to get the most accurate and timely information. Developer is highly attuned to the requests of users and responds with questions promptly. Great data field!

January 1, 2021 | Version 7.2.0

What a great app, although I wonder about the psychological benefits of knowing you're pedaling into a 25 mph headwind. Just kidding! Customer service is awesome too. Scott returned an email promptly to help with a technical glitch. On New Year's Eve!

New data field options just made a great app even better. Do yourself the favor and make this coming season just that much better with this data field. Get the Pro, worth every penny.

December 10, 2020 | Version 7.1.5

This app is the coolest thing since the invention of the bike. I first downloaded the free version and it took me all of one ride to convince me to upgrade to the pro version. I have to be honest, the upgrade to the pro version was not smooth as silk but that is how I found out just how good this app is(or should I say its developer). What makes this app so great is the level of support you get with it. Scott responded to my email right away and the issue was resolved in less than 24 hours. It became very apparent to me that Scott would not be happy or rest until he knew I was happy with the resolution. After the app was fixed, I had a problem with Garmin express installing the update and again it was Scott to the rescue. Garmin support could take a lesson in costumer satisfaction from Scott. Sometimes things don't work the way they should, it's how you deal with those issues that separate the the losers from winners. Garmin should bow at Scott's feet because if it wasn't for Scott my Garmin would be in a million pieces and I would be riding with a Wahoo. Thanks Scott and may the wind be always at your back.

Полезное приложение, работает исправно, показывает направление ветра относительно движения на велосипеде, а так же скорость ветра.

Ben Prince

This is an excellent data field that has added so much value to the information I get on my Garmin devices during bike rides. The information is fast to update and appears accurate against other data sources. Scott is excellent with his communication and is always helpful for any questions.

Awesome app....just keeps getting better. Strava integration is wind telematics at its finest. I’ve personally been able to use this data field and set my own personal records this year due to visibility in knowing the wind forecast coming my way. V7 and beyond just takes it to another level. Do yourself the favor and use this data field, don’t skimp, get the Pro version, it’s massively more useful. Great job to the developer, awesome work!

Outstanding app. Accurate wind, temp, humidity and chance of rain. Always up on my primary screen.

Glenn Corpin
November 22, 2020 | Version 7.0.7

Love the app! Simple yet very informative! Info updates in real time. Didn’t realize how much I depend on it until my Garmin Edge 530 deleted for some reason. With update now you can add rain%, humidity, temp. on same field as wind direction. Love it! Support is also great! Keep it up Scott!

November 22, 2020 | Version 7.0.6

Super App. Endlich alle wichtigen Informationen auf einem Blick. 12 Dollar sin für die Pro Version gut angelegt,

November 15, 2020 | Version 7.0.5

Brilliant App & Fantastic Customer Service. Having been extremely happy with the previous version, I just upgraded to Pro & had some initial questions on it. The owner immediately answered my email & solved my issues!

What a difference this app makes to your cycle. Knowing the general wind direction is fine if your heading directly into a head wind or have it directly behind you, what this app lets you know the exact direction and speed of the wind relative to your position on whatever road or path you are on. Excellent app and great and quick comms from the developer if you have any questions. Would highly recommend
