Add local temperature automatically?

Post by espenmoe » Mon Jan 29, 2018 3:23 pm

Would it be possible for the app to grab temperature data from the default ios weather-app? If you start tracking a dive, temperature would be a great addition to the gps-coordinates.

If not possible, can we at least ad it manually? Today I can't seem to find where to add it on the iPhone-app.

Sorry for the late reply, I missed this.

I don't believe I added it to the iPhone app. I will add a note to do that.

As for auto-populating it, I don't believe you can access the weather app. It would need to go through a web service based on position/time. I have not investigated this much. If I have some spare time I'll have a look in to the feasibility of it.

Great!

Today I believe local temperature is not an option at all (at leats I can't find it). An manually field would be a great upgrade as well!

I think iphone just grabs the data from Yahoo-wather.
