Hello,

This morning, with EV4 on my Android device, I downloaded the advanced WX at 6 a.m. and I only got forecast for 7 and 8 a.m., not beyond. I re-downloaded it at 7 and I only got forecast for 8 and 9 a.m.,not beyond…

Can you fix this please?

Thanks in advance

Alain

Hmm, I could not reproduce this when you posted it, but this morning I have the same issue. 

its not that the data isn’t there; when I use the slider I can get passed that two hours limit, but not when using the 1-hour step-ahead button. I will investigate further

Hello Rob,

It seems to work better today:

Advanced WX downloaded at 12:00 with forecast available until 6:00 a.m. tomorrow.

That’s a forecast duration of 18 hours. That's better but not perfect: usually the forecast duration was at least 36 hours.

Regards

Alain

Have you tried using the slider instead of the step-foreward button? 36hrs should be the forecast duration; and the data is there but its the step foreward/ step backward button that is behaving weird. I'm looking at it right now to try to get it fixed for the new beta version that is about to get released. Sorry for the inconvenience causing

Yes Rob, i've tried the slider and it works as you say, but it's really not easy to use (a little moving to the right and you jump several days forward..). It seems to me that now, the step backward arrow works but not the step foreward one...

While on the subject of Wx step-forward/slider:

1. The play/pause button does not work on Nav or Wx Map (I tried all 3: Win, Android & iOS).

2. If you step forward to the max on Wx Map (10 days(?)) then switch back to Nav Map, you get the max (36 hrs(?)) - so far so good... but if you set the slider anywhere else in either Map, it seems random what that corresponds to on the other - e.g. set Wed 31 00:00 on Nav Map, swipe to Wx Map and it reads Fri 02 12:00(!) Set Wed 31 00:00 on Wx, swipe back to Nav and it reads Tue 30 14:00(!!)

Cheers (& sorry!)
