@accolade1212 That's a valid point, however personally I'd rather have a parameter notification and for power conservation use a pull, perhaps on a timer/alarm. Partially because I use a smartphone/tablet as a backup - but in wet conditions am not about to expose them (salt or fresh water) and need my hands for rigging. Being able to set an alarm - either parameters or UTC would be really cool. 3-4 hour watch stints and all that.... OR just for a dawn patrol wake-up alarm...

RE: Altitudes/Heights in Feet
@s2wiley The US National Weather Service has these feeds already. (Might actually be from the US Forest Service data.) Dunno about AIRNAV and Zones, however I have to believe these feeds also exist for Civil Aviation. I've found all sorts of available data via https://forecast.weather.gov/product_types.php?site=NWS
River flows, flood levels, topo, various layers of weather feeds, cloudbase etc.
RE: Altitudes/Heights in Feet
@tomber42 You mean a TOPOGRAPHY overlay? That would be sweet. US Forest Service (Corp of Engineer Surveys) makes these available as a map feed. I'm pretty sure there is a Google Earth plugin that Windy could use. Similarly, I'd love to have an aircraft navigation and ZONE overlay. There has to be a free government resource somewhere under the freedom of information act (USA). FAA?
Save/Remember last session settings as a default (on/off) as user defined default? Ex. SAVE session as login default (Y/N)
LOVE the app. Thanks for all the hard work!!! As I use it more it occurs to me that every time I launch it I have to start back at the beginning rather than having "last known" or user set "defaults". Zoom levels, locations last reviewed etc. Simple none intrusive cookie stuff. Am I missing something? Is there a SAVE and REMEMBER function? ie. Always save session settings for next login (toggle on/off should be a basic function)?
I want to be able to set a location (like an LZ), zoom levels, condition parameters etc. then next time I launch the app have it ready to go for reviewing condition changes. Typically I'll do the initial location(s) sweep on a laptop, then want to have the same (last known good parameters viewed) display view on my smartphone or other device when I get on site at the location (or close - knowing whether to divert to an alternate LZ if necessary).(Or surf spot, boat launch etc.)
Second: Feature Request. Can you add RIVER flow data? Ex. In the US, Cubic Feet Per Minute at report locations is critical for rafting, kayaking etc. THANKS!
Ability to change a location name in Favorites
: I would like to be able to overwrite the default name with a more precise name or local reference to an LZ/Launch site/Airport. ex. Instead of (default city) overwrite with somethign more relevent to locals and specific. Example such as change TO , such as .
