ISS (International Space Station)

Description

This widget displays the ISS location and its orbit. You can timeshift in past and future. It also displays list of next passes, and lists astronauts currently onboard.</p><p></p><p>IF YOU GET IQ! ERROR, PLEASE CHANGE SETTINGS TO LOW RESOLUTION</p><p></p><p>-- WIDGET --</p><p>- ISS location is calculated and displayed as a green dot (no need for internet connection)</p><p>- The calculated orbit for the past and future 45 minutes is displayed as a green line</p>

What’s New

1.0.12 Now a server calculates orbit and provides calc output to the watch to ensure quicker display when opening the widget and getting new orbit data. In case server is down or stuck, the original method is still coded as automated backup (if data is more than 3 days old). </p><p>1.0.11 Now only shows orbit and calculated position if data is recent (less than 24hrs). Reason is that the orbit decays quickly so after 1 to 5 days, local orbit data will be irrelevant and new ISS position needs to be downloaded to recalculate the orbit.</p>

Would love to use it but it's not working on my Vivoactive 3 or husband's Vivoactive HR :(

Noted. I also see an error on my end. It is proving quite difficult to display so much complexity (world in 3D projection, orbits) with so little processing power. But I am confident it will work - just requires a bit more work on my end. If you are willing to test the app on your specific device, contact me with "Contact Developer" link. This way, I can send you the file before publishing to ensure it works on your device too. So far, I can only test on my D2 Charlie.

This is now fully working with my Fenix 5x latest public software release 7.10. Thankyou for all the hard work!! Features: Displays your current location! You can scroll the earth with "start" button, for a different angled view.(earth will turn automatically by itself to track iss) Accurate positioning (checked with online tracking software!) Orbital path! Will track iss with internet conection, or WITHOUT !! using your algorithms(brilliant) Really enjoying this very useful and unique exciting widget! All the best, Sam.

This is going to be one awsome widget! (Had it working at times) It will be extremely handy to be able to locate and view ISS especially if used in conjunction with your other widgets,(space x and solor system live) I love what your doing in the IQ store,and i really like the new trajectory info page and countdown in Space x! All the best, Sam. Fenix 5x 6.0
