Hi @readdie unfortunately, it is not possible to have NAM as preset for detail when you are in radar or satellite, but when you are in other layers (wind, ...) in NAM model, detail is opened with this model directly.
@ivo how about models that are already listed under "Compare" function?
In my instance NAM is more accurate than ECMWF and it would be greatly appreciated if I could set it as startup model on a browser, app and widgets rather than having to manually chose it each time.
Another little suggestion would be to add a setting option where one could choose to restart on last used map scale rather than having to manually zoom in each time on startup.
OK so I think I’ve actually figured something out. This works on my iPad app and iPhone app. If you hold down on the home icon for about two seconds, it will determine your location and zoom in to a radius of like 75 miles which is perfect for me actually.
The default zoom is usually like 1000 miles requiring you to pinch to zoom several times.
With that being said, if your location is not on, that probably won’t work for you.
This 100% solves, my issue of having to zoom in on my location every time I start up. It is not a default action, but a workaround that works for me. Hopefully this helps some others.
Customization is pretty hard to get right... Too much options tend to render apps and services complicated and unusable, which doesn't mean (as I believe) the Windy devs aren't open to add more options if it makes sense.
Good idea to start this thread, to let the Windy devs find out, what kind of customizations are in greatest demand. I am sure they would implement anything that 10 % of users would find useful.
So folks, what are your suggestions when it comes to custom options?
On the app... quite possibly depends on the type of phone & OS version + available phone memory & battery saving settings.
My Samsung with Android 7 couldn't do this. It could only remember the last opened layer + forecast model for a short while, maybe a few minutes after closing the app. But after a longer time, it would always open on Wind + ECMWF (which is the default settings on Windy)... However, after upgrading the OS to Android 8 Oreo, my phone seems to always remember the last opened layer + forecast model.
EDIT: After some very long while (didn't get the chance to measure the exact value; let's say just after the night as I am opening the app so often during the day :)), my Android app does open on Wind + ECMWF.
Forgot to mention that I'm a beta-tester (version 16.12.3 at the moment)... But my friend's regular Android app always opens on Wind + ECMWF by default.
