Used to work before my venu got an update. Can no longer scroll through the app:(

Hi Joshua. In the future, if you run into issues please use the contact developer functionality so we can try to work through the problem(s). In this case, I have not updated the app for several months and upon further investigation it appears this is an issue with Garmin and the recent firmware released for some devices, including the Venu and Vivoactive 4. I am working on some sort of workaround but without an actual device to test on it will be a bit more complicated. See this forum post for more details: https://forums.garmin.com/developer/connect-iq/i/bug-reports/latest-fw-update-on-va4-killed-behaviordelegate

Tried to contact the developer and no success. Anyone how to change the 4 displayed stations. Would help to have some instructions.

I double checked and received no email from you -- I reply to all requests (see various reviews below). The 4 stations displayed on the first/main page are the four stations nearest to your location.

I should also mention: outstanding developer response to issues. Thanks Doug!

Hi Paul. Thanks for the kind words and for noting in the review that there was an issue. I think the 'contact developer' functionality should be working now (I tried sending to myself) so please use that to contact me -- I'd like to give you my email so you have direct access in case of future issues.

Excellent app overall. Latest version crashes after posn fix. Unable to post on Contact page. Keep up the great work Doug!

Excellent widget !! Please update it for compatibility with fenix 6x !!

Christopher Fox

It's useful, but it would be much moreso if you could choose which stations were displayed instead of just showing you the four closest. I'm not sure what the "home aerodrome" setting even does.

very usable & useful.

Even though I have updated my fenix5x I cannot download this widget ...it keeps telling me I need to update. Thanks

When the widget works, it's fantastic. My problem is when I go to the widget on my watch, my watch will randomly restart itself. It gets quite annoying.

Great app - my only complaint is not being able to see the raw METAR or TAF.

Love it on mine. I thought that tapping on a metar would bring it up, however it o ks brings up the last metar viewed. To select a metar you have to push menu button. And choose home airport or nearest which brings up a list of closest airports. Small annoyance but confusing until you get it down. Also took along time to refresh my nearest metars. Hopefully this is stable enough to use in the cockpit. We shall see.

Works very good. Small visual thing: den alt shows -279 ft if not available? Everything else works as expected. Thanks !!

Hi there and thanks for the feedback. Density attitude is always calculated (using the proper, wet method) so if you see "-279 ft" then that is the actual DA for the airport you are viewing (on a cold day DA can be lower than sea level, especially at airports at lower altitudes).

Exactly what i was looking for. I find it very useful, without the need to buy the d2.

Thanks Douglas for working with me to make it work on my Epix.

Love this app. Gets my vivoactive hr one step closer to a d2

Roy Aycock

Works great but how do I get it to read Fahrenheit instead of Celsius? Everything else works great.

After last Update (today) it doesn't work, shows only IQ! Sorry, but don't offer it for Forerunner HR if it's not work with it.

Hi there. Sorry you have encountered an issue using the widget. The app is confirmed to work on all the listed devices so please use the 'Contact Developer' link to send me more information so I can try and figure out why you are seeing the error screen. Also, since the update was actually an automatic update pushed out by Garmin (due to the release of the D2 Charlie watch), can you please try uninstalling the widget, restarting the watch and then re-installing the widget?

Well- it is stuck on "initializing waiting for BLE connection -waiting for position fix" Doesn't work on 935. I don't see a 'contact developer button above' I'm paired with my phone.

Réponse du développeur
21 juillet 2017, DouglasR

Hi there. If you see "waiting for position fix" then the "BLE connection" line will be crossed out, and the widget is indeed waiting while your watch is trying to get GPS fix. Are you trying to use the widget indoors? Please try to run the widget for the first time outside or near a window, where you might get a better GPS signal.

Great widget. Unfortunately does not find my closest airport 3 miles away.

Hi there and thanks for the feedback. Please use the 'Contact Developer' link to send me more details on where you are located and what airport isn't being found. The source for the METAR and TAF data should be complete for all ICAO reporting stations so if one is missing then I'd like to know about it.

Andreas

It works with Vivoactive HR only, if the settings not be changed. ASAP after changes of settings, it shows only IQ!

Réponse du développeur
16 juin 2017, DouglasR

Hi there. Sorry you ran into the IQ! issue. I'm pretty sure that this is related to the GCM update issue that others have also encountered. Please use the 'Contact Developer' link so I can get further details. Otherwise, it is practically impossible for me to try and track down what might be the problem as I do not have access to an actual vivoactive HR device.

Désolé, aucune statistique n'est disponible pour le moment.
