@kekert Hello, any progress on the bug? Symptoms persist; hover-over paragliding spots with the Note 9 stylus works if using Chrome or Firefox, but with the Android app no details pop up when hovering with the stylus.
Dear Windy team,
I also would appreciate if you will add an option into the app (as well as into the web version) to visualize your flight planned route (and import it as GPX to save time), so we can have a Poor man's weather radar for pilots :) The app lacks speed control compared to web-version and I also would like to see more frames per time unit (right now it refreshes with a speed of 1 frame/3 minutes). Maybe you can make another time period in addition to 12/6/1 hour, say, for the latest 15 minutes which will be the most frame-dense period (for ex. 1 frame/minute) ? When pilots are already in the air, they're interested only in very latest weather data and 15 minutes may serve this need well.
I usually fly at lower altitudes and can receive mobile broadband connection from time to time (depending on location) and an option to reduce downloadable traffic is highly demanded. Maybe you can make an option to preload specific part of the map (just like in Google maps) and fine-tune overall downloaded traffic to reduce unnecessary stuff. Again, the goal is to receive fresh & updated data as soon as your phone/tablet receives broadband connection , because it may be lost in next minute.
THANKS IN ADVANCE!
If you look at the colour scale of cloud base in Settings, you see that grey corresponds to cloud base higher than 8000m OR that there is no cloud. To check that, just compare the Cloud base layer and the Cloud layer. Where is no cloud, there is no cloud base.
Then, why does this layer look patchy with geometrical shapes? This is because there is no interpolation between each grid point of the model. It gives the same type of image as the Precipitation type layer. The image is not smoothed to avoid mixing of the different levels .
Some additional information:
If you mean this pretty harbour on Sandön island, you are right, it is not possible to find it using the search bar. You find other places in Sweden with the same name, but not this one. This is very strange because it is possible to find it in OpenStreetMap which is used as names base by Windy, if I am right. And furthermore it is possible to find this location on Windy Maps !
