I’m interesting in developing a personal Garmin app that uses my iKitesurf Pro subscription to read wind data from the Weatherflow stations nearest to me, shows that on my watch while I’m recording an activity, and also uses the wind direction for calculating some tack/jibe statistics.
I reached out to firstname.lastname@example.org, and heard back a couple days later that I had to produce a formal proposal for an app, and if accepted there would be an additional $250/year charge for API access.
This is particularly developer unfriendly, especially for a personal usecase like this. What have other’s experiences been?
A similar app (that shows wind data on a Garmin watch, I wanted to extend this for my usecase) indicates that you used to be able to just get a personal API key like this in a straightforward way GitHub - kite247/iKitesurf-ConnectIQ-Garmin-App: App for Garmin watches that shows live wind sensor readings from iKitesurf.com
