Sorry, but I won't turn off my VPN connection, because you're not able to fix this bug. And I guess, I'm not the only person using VPN and windy. You can't seriously suggest, that every VPN-user switches off his VPN connection?!
Any other location-based app that depends on gps, is working just fine, with VPN turned on!
It's possible, that an active VPN connection may lead to a slightly different behaviour of the location api in android and that it needs to be handled in the right way. However, like I stated before, every other app on my phone is just working fine except windy...
So again, please assign this bug to a competent programmer, who knows what he's doing and it will be fixed in a minute.
with update 27.3.1 the location loss doesn't occur anymore on my phone - only problem is, it seems you've achieved this by blocking any updates of the widget facepalm :-)
In short: Location stays in the right place, but timeframe doesn't get any updates => Today is Thursday, widget still shows Wednesdays weather data.
Windy has permission to run in background, plus this problem occured only with the latest update.
.Anyway, I wish you a good start in 2021 combined with the hope, that you are able to assign this bug to a really gifted programmer in 2021.
This widget is a showcase to your app, not being able to fix this bug for months is just sad :-(
Just rebooted my phone, afterwards the widget came up again with the right location, followed 30secs later by a totally messed up position. "Schlieren" which is hundreds of kilometers away from where I'm right now. That's where my VPN terminates. It has nothing in common with my GPS pos.
Boot => GPS pos => 30 secs => VPN pos without any further updates.
I've turned off Google location accuracy in my settings, without any change in this behaviour.
So overall, the latest update made the problem even worse.
RE: Default settings
I just got Premium member. Thx for your great work.
However, please check again if it's possible to change default weather forecast model. Icon is much more accurate, than ecmwf.
I'd be willing to accept slower loading speeds, if i could get rid of this annoying manual model change any time the app opens.
- click on the settings-gear in the lower right corner of the widget
- click on "update widget"
this updates the location correclty. all within an second. it just doesn't last very long. seems like the widget grabs a wrong position every time it tries to update by itself...
Hello @petra-pik ,
I just received the latest udpdate to version 27.1.2 and it just got worse.
The widget lost the location after just some hours in the middle of the day.
The new position was detected as Zürich, which is about 300km away from my actual location...
Fix like always, is a manual location update in the widget. At least for the next few hours.
Can it be so hard to read out a reliable location from gps-provider?!
Hello @petra-pik ,
I'm running version 26.1.10 but it's still not working properly.
However the behaviour has changed:
Instead of showing the wrong location in the morning, now an error message like "location could not be detected" shows in the widget. Even if the location in the evening before was absolutely correct and the phone wasn't touched all night. Entering settings and hitting the update button fixes this issue for the next few hours.
Android still doesn't offer the option to grant windy location access any time.
This was working for so long just perfect and now the widget produces so many problems ?!
I'm running version 26.1.8. Since update to Android 10 the widget doesn't update my current location correctly.
I'm living in Germany, some mornings it shows London (?!) weather data.
The update only works, if i trigger it manually from widget settings.
I realized when configuring gps access for windy app, I only see two options: "deny" or "when app is in use".
Maybe this affects updating of the current location. For other apps I can also select access to gps pos anytime.
It seems like windy doesn't request this option.
