Hello, When will it be possible to have the real time GPS boat position available on Windy. That will be very helpfull !!
@Damien971 Hi, it is an interesting thought, Windy is still evolving, so we may do it in the future.
Hi, i'm a member of charal sailing team and i Join Damien's question, i think most of the offshore racing skippers (especially for the next Vendée Globe) would be very interested to see their boat current position on the map. today windy is mostly used to prepare the races but not so much during racing, if it is an interest for you that windy become a tool used onboard, it would be interesting to work on containing the amount a data downloaded as we used satellitar internet supplier and to be able to place the boat realtime on the map.
wow it is awsom!!~
You probably have a satellite broadband internet reception on board. Do you get already Windy at sea?
If yes it would be useful for you to have at same time your GPS position.
Otherwise it would require a new format of Windy for satellite receptions at narrower bandwidth.
Go Team Charal!
(yes, there are some sailors here too... ;) )
Are you going to add real-time GPS position option?
@igor-320 It is possible that we will add it in the future.

@korina I would put it in the top 3 of your overall priorities 🙂 It's a must-have option not only for sailors, but low-altitude VFR piltos as well
