  • As I posted in another thread one interesting discovery I made in the last 24 hrs regarding the weather is that I used the save location function yesterday, since I did that the GPS weather has stopped drifting, the location on the weather widget now reads the correct location, I allowed the watch to break connection from my Iphone and again the GPS drifted, as soon as I regained Bluetooth connection the location returned correct again, however this only works if you use the save location function, a temporary workaround at least, weather hasn't drifted all day !

    • Hi Peter,
      This watch face is my favorite watch face. it's almost perfect for any information which I need, but if the temperature and cloud icon can switch place that will become wonderful. Because the description of cloud status is too long, it will block the data icon sometimes. I think now the cloud's place can shown today's highest and lowest temperature and now temperature just shown the cloud picture. That all information can perfect present in watch face.

      Thanks

      • If you want to prevail the display of the date, then you can put on the option "override field 4" in the app settings and choose a field to display there instead of the weather condition.
        The current weather provider unfortunately does not provide the ability to fetch today's low and high temp.

          Thanks for your information. Now, it can show the cloud and data icon at the same time, but I personally would prefer the big cloud icon and small temperature indication.

          • There seems to be an issue with the lengths of the weather text. The space above the time is completely filled by the weather icon and text “light intensity shower rain’. So now the day and date are not displayed anymore? Also the city (under the temperature) is displaying just the text “Gemeente”. I think this was displaying just ‘Horst’ before (place where I live The Netherlands).

            • Both the city and the weather condition are coming from the weather provider which are indeed longer with the new weather provider (openweathermap), it might be an option if I store the weather condition texts in the watch face itself, but I'm not sure if I have sufficient memory left for that. I'll add it to my to do to check it.

              • The issue with the weather city is that it seems to retrieve the name of the ‘gemeente’ instead of the name of the city/place I live in. It now displays ‘Gemeente Ho’, with only h half an ‘o’. I live in the ‘gemeente’ ‘Gemeente Horst aan de Maas’, but the place I live in is ‘Horst’.

                • Yes I understand, In the next release I'll throw away "Gemeente" and "Arrondisement" from what is returned to me so that you have a sensible name viewable for "Gemeente Horst Aan de Maas" and "Arrondisement Brussel". Might be a few weeks before I release this version as there are some other things I want to take along.

                  • For people with a vivoactive 3 that are facing the gps drift issue ( a Garmin firmware bug ) I've added an option to stick to the lat/long in the app settings.

                    To activate this setting:

                    - upgrade to data lover 7.1 (in case upgrade does not succeed: switch to other watch face, uninstall data lover, reinstall data lover)

                    - in the app settings enter the lat/long of your location (use the format as provided by http://www.latlong.net )

                    - in the app settings set the option Allow Gps Override to Off

                        • Hi, is it possible to turn off the bottom chart?

                          Comment


                          • there are several options for the bottom chart to graph something else, but turning it off isn't an option. Why would you want to turn it off?

                              Just to create more room on the screen.
