How to use a route planner
In this screenshot you see clearly that the wind direction and speed do not match the wind conditions in the map.
At boat position there is a weak northerly wind, when the table shows a southerly wind of 15kt.
@idefix37 The routeplanner data represents data that extends from the middle of a time segment where you start. So if you start at 1200Z, or 1500Z (thus the middle of a 3 hour segment), it should be more accurate. (I think it is more accurate in premium. ) It would be interesting to test the accuracy, depending on the start hour.
Here starting at 1600Z and with 1h forecast step, it does not improve anything.
At boat position the wind is ENE, but shown as S wind in the Route planner.
@idefix37 Hello, I have reported the issue, we will look into it.
Now wind on map and on Route planner are matching again at 340NM on a 576NM trip.

Is there a way to use an uploaded .gpx route in the Distance & Planning feature of Windy? I can see the route on the map quite clearly when I upload it but the Distance & Planning feature does not seem to recognize it as the subject for which I would like meteorological data. Is there a way to connect these two features and make them work together?
Not yet, hope it will be possible in near future:
@idefix37 how to see VFR and IFR inside the APP on ipad please?
Could you be more explicit in your question? I understand that you want to get the Route planner available in the mobile app, right?
You have seen in previous posts here above that this feature is only available with the browser version on desktop. With the mobile app (on tablets or mobile phones) you have only the Distance & planning tool.
You have posted 10 messages on the same subject within one hour. Are you trolling us?
With the mobile devices, using windy.com with browser, you can use the Flight planner plugin.
