Weather Ver. 1.0 – GPS a Weather Tracking Program


Posto che vai tempo che trovi, questa potrebbe essere la definizione esatta per il programma che Vi presento oggi. Totalmente free e opensigned l’applicativo ci permetter? di avere le condizioni meteo del luogo in cui ci troviamo. La particolarit? del software ? di sfruttare le coordinate fornite dall’antenna GPS per chiedere attraverso la rete internet dutti i dati meteo della zona in cui ci troviamo. Il programma potr? essere usato anche da coloro che posseggono un cellulare sprovvisto di localizzatore GPS. Infatti, a seconda delle condizioni, si potr? sfruttare le informazioni della? posizione predefinita della cella a cui si ? collegati (solitamente si trova sempre a poca distanza dal telefonino) o della? posizione rilevata dall’antenna GPS on board.

Il programma ? compatibile con il sistema operativo Symbian S60 3rd Edition FP1 o superiori.

Come di consueto qui di seguito troverete il download per scaricare il programma e successivamente la versione in lingua inglese


A Weather tracking program for Series 60 devices.

Requires S60 3rd Edition FP1, or better (although only tested on FP1). There is an old version available for 1st and 2nd Editions here.

Weather is free software covered by the GNU.
Weather is a simple application which downloads and displays reports about the current weather conditions for about 6000+ locations all over the world. The reports are provided by the United States National Weather Service, and are in a format called METAR
The reports themselves are really small (a few hundred bytes usually) so they shouldn’t run up your data usage too much.

Weather keeps a set of your “favourite” locations, which you can switch between with the Options > Current Location menu.
The Edit Locations command is used to add and remove locations from this list.
Use the Reload command to download new reports.
The Location Info command displays some information about the currently selected location.
Show Raw METAR displays the raw METAR data, if for some reason you want to look at it.
The Settings commmand brings up a settings dialog, from where you can change your preferences about units used and whether cloud information should be detailed or summarised. This is also where you would put any proxy settings.

Getting Started:
When you run Weather for the first time you will have no reports and no locations set up.
To add a location select Options > Edit Locations > Create New Location.
There are GPS enabled and non-GPS enabled editions of Weather (see below).
If you are running the GPS enabled version, you can use GPS to find a list of nearby METAR weather stations. Otherwise you have to choose from a list, first by choosing the country and then the station inside that country.
You can now download a report for this location with the Reload command.

GPS vs non-GPS editions:
For Series 60 3rd Edition FP1, the .SISX file must be signed for the application to be allowed to access your GPS hardware.
Apparently this was changed for FP2, so that self-signed apps can use GPS (however I have not tested this).
As I do not have the ability to sign applications properly I have released a self-signed .SISX file with this feature disabled for FP1 phones,
and a self-signed .SISX file with this feature enabled for FP2 and greater phones.
I have also released an unsigned .SIS file with GPS enabled. If you have an FP1 phone with GPS (e.g. an N95) you could go to
and sign this yourself using the IMEI code of your phone. Choose “Open Signed Online”, select the NetworkServices, ReadUserData and Location capabilities, enter your IMEI code and email address and upload a copy of the .SIS file.

The reports are downloaded from the internet so your network will need to allow internet access and your phone will net to be set up accordingly.

If you cannot connect it is possible that your network requires you to go through a proxy server.
If you are using a proxy server you will need to enter the proxy server address and port in the settings dialog, and to set “Use Proxy” to “yes”.
To get these values open the Settings program, select “Connections”, then “Access points”,
select the access point you will be using and then bring up the options menu and choose “Advanced settings”.
Write the proxy IP address and port down somewhere and put these values into the Weather settings.
