GPS boat position
@korina Dear Korina, do you have any updates for location service implementation? 🙂
@igor-320 Hello, currently there are no updates. If there is an intention to develop this feature, we will inform you.
@korina still looking forward for real-time GPS position. This feature is really needed for low-altitude pilots, especially for those who fly unsophisticated airplanes like ultralights with very basic equipment. Boaters will appreciate it too :)
Hi! I am a captain of a merchant cargo vessel and sailing almost in the middle of pacific ocean, however when i click "find my location" it always shows my position at some Mexico city and i have to type manually my position to get forecast. I think this real-time GPS issue should be implemented soon!
Have you set your location using GPS ?
And have you enabled your device to provide your GPS position to Windy?
It works for me but of course it depends on the device.
By the way how do you get Windy at sea? I guess you have a broadband connection by satellite. Could you tell us more about your equipment and devices.
Hi There and thank you very much for your response!
Yes all GPS settings as you described, however mostly need to enter manually.
That's correct we have broadband satellite connection for business and crew internet. Despite the fact we receive detailed report from professional companies i like to have it for myself to use it with premium benefits for more frequent data.
I use it with my mobile or on our desktop. Even use while not sailing at all.!
Thank you for detailed reply.
Fair winds and good sailing.
your insight on this topic is very demanding 🙂
bumping the thread! :)
This feature is very much needed for everyone
Very helpful thread..
