Alas, not much headway on the weather part until I get simple connectivity. Working on it.
As @NebbishHacker says - right now you can't request weather from Gadgetbridge. It's possible we could work on a way to request it, but it may be that actually all Gadgetbridge would do in that case is push the last known weather info.
I guess it might be possible to add some kind of universal on-Bangle storage for Gadgetbridge - so like is done for the weather app, but just irrespective of what app is installed

That would make sense. You could store all kinds of stuff like weather info, music state and info etc.
Any way that I can contact gadgetbridge for the weather app? I am new to this watch and need as much help as I can get. Thank you, Hank
you can start by reading the readme from the weather app³ itself: https://github.com/espruino/BangleApps/tree/master/apps/weather
It has also linked a guide how to setup the weather app² for GB: https://codeberg.org/Freeyourgadget/Gadgetbridge/wiki/Weather
1) Install GB widget and weather app³ to the Bangle
2) Install GB android app on your phone (via the F-Droid package, NOT the google play store version)
3) Install the additional android weather app² (see second link above)
4) Setup weather app² and GB on your phone correctly (see second link above)
5) connect GB app to your Bangle
Hope the helps to get started.
² - the Android weather app on your phone
³ - the BangleJS weather app from the app loader
Was there ever a message devised to request updated/new weather from Gadgetbridge?
I have been digging through documentation but haven't found any.
Thanks for the clarification @NebbishHacker. While you both deserve credit, merging isn't quite the same as developing and presenting the concept, that credit earned.
@BobFrankston has made progress here, see #21 post.
