Windy launches Route Planner

  • @marekd this feature on a tablet would be great. I just discovered it and spent over an hour trying to figure out why it wasn’t working on my iPad. It wasn’t clear to me that this is only available on a PC.

    I’m a pilot in Bolivia and this would be a fantastic tool on the iPad.

  • @marekd and dear windy developers

    For me it seems like your "speed option" is not really working. Windy (still?) behaves likes the vessel speed is infinite, meaning it is calculating the weather along the route with the forecast at the route start time. See the two screenshots. First one is the wind map at the start of the route. Second is the wind map during the route at route point #2: the weather at the current location on the map is very different from the route view.

    It is also obvious by changing the vessel speed (e.g. 1kt, 10kt, 100kt, 1000kt): the weather along the route never changes.

    @Flachkurbler Thank you for reporting this issue! We had an error there after last update :-( And unfortunately our tests did not recognize it... It is fixed now (still working on missing gust, will be fixed soon). Thank you and sorry for all inconviences!

  • Wow, that was fast. Thank you very much indeed!

  • @marekd, you are probably aware of it already, but I just wanted to point out that after your (unbelievable quick) fix, not only your gusts but also your other data is showing zeros after some time on the route...

    I confirm what @Flachkurbler says. About 4 days after the present day, the wind speed is equal to zero and wind direction is stuck to S (wind reference set to North up).
    Even if the trip departure is postponed the issue appears at same date.

    Apparently today the issue mentioned above (wind speed at 0) has disappeared.
    Wind direction and speed are OK.

  • Cool! But tell me....did you get rid of the alert option to make room for the trip planner option in the press and hold menu?

  • Sailor

    I tell you .... that the alert feature is still available in Windy app !
    ... And being ironic is not the best way to get a reply !

  • Its really helpful information
