Wind Field

Descripción

Live Wind data on your Garmin! Please note that this app requires a payment of $5 US per year. You now also get access to my Forecastr data field for the same payment.</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>

Novedades

4.1.6 New no signal icon, auto dismiss alerts after 5 mins, alignment with new Forecastr app, bug fixes</p><p></p><p>4.1.1</p><p>Properly shows temp in Celcius when speed is in Statute. Added wind gust and feels like temperature in optional fields. Fixed random bug in fit recording.</p><p></p><p>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>

A very useful app - I use all the time. The only limitation is my Edge 520 - so I cant take advantage of the new features :( Scott has already teased me toward an upgrade

the new 530 and 830 are so nice!

If you only get one widget this is a must-have. Wind speed and direction is so important when training or if you are just out cycling. Now Scott has added more fields like temperature. If you need any help he is very responsive and will address any issue.

Thanks Nick! Look for my new datafield Forecastr for a live 3 hour weather forecast. Free hourly updates for WindField subscribers!

Really useful, would it be possible to get temperature in Celsius? Thanks

Mixed units (temp in C, speed in mph) is now available!

I love this field. it does something no other field does, gives wind direction. its excellent. Only problem is that you need to carry your phone

This is the most useful app on Connect IQ. Never fails and I find myself looking for the tailwind routes. Developer support is first rate.

One of the most if not THE most useful app for Garmin cyclists...and the service is even better...Wow and thanks!

thanks! i've added weather forecasts in my new datafield, Forecastr. Hourly updates for Windfield subscribers. Hopefully everyone will find it just as useful

Are you doing the update for the 520 too? Thanks

Respuesta del desarrollador
17 de junio de 2019, scottbeam

sorry, the 520 doesn't have enough memory. i'll always support the standard wind data and arrow for it, but for the new features, you'll need a 520 plus, 530, 820, 830, 1000 or 1030.

An indispensable indicator that reliably tells me when to hide from the wind behind another rider or when to go for it on a segment. The developer is very responsive, too.

thanks! but never go to the front unless it's a city limit sprint!

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

Respuesta del desarrollador
10 de junio de 2019, scottbeam

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)!

thanks for the review! the settings panel is in the connect app on your phone. follow the directions on this page to find it. https://support.garmin.com/en-US/?faq=SPo0TFvhQO04O36Y5TYRh5

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...

Respuesta del desarrollador
19 de abril de 2019, scottbeam

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
