NetWx means "network weather", and yes, when internet access is available, the app checks online every 15 minutes or so to get your local temperature and pressure. .............
Blimey Frank, that’s amazing and frightening at the same time. It brings home the fact that once you go online you open your life and activities to the world. Was I really messing around with my MkIXBM for 2hrs 40min, or is there another sextant head in the next street? I don't quite live in Nettleham either, but it's within 10 miles. Presumably Somerset isn’t Somerset UK. A 17 degree F change in temp and a 12mb change in pressure is rather a lot for a roughly 200 mile distance apart at roughly the same time. DaveP
