Improved Reliability & Performance in New Version of WeatherTRAK Mobile

April 2, 2021

The new version 3.3 of WeatherTRAK Mobile works together with the recently updated WeatherTRAK controller firmware (7.11/8.7) to make significant strides towards improving overall reliability and performance. This update includes a new architecture that is the foundation for more consistent round-trip communication between the WeatherTRAK Mobile application, WeatherTRAK Servers and WeatherTRAK Controllers. Mobile 3.3 is available today in both the Google Play and Apple Store. Controllers with over-the-air update capability have been updated with the latest firmware automatically.

Mobile version 3.3 also includes:

  • Longer station, controller, and site names are better accommodated, more notably on smaller-sized screens.
  • Default zoom level in Site Map is increased, putting the site and the assets closer in view upon opening.
  • Asset icons in search queries are now appropriately scaled.
  • Station numbers have been added next to the station name in the Station Location asset popup.
  • “Location on Slope” setting has been added to Station Programming.
  • Changing controller mode now shows the newly selected mode name blink during the time it takes for the change to occur. Blinking stops once the new mode is set.
  • “Activating a manual run will pause all scheduled irrigation. Continue?” will now only show once per session for the selected controller once dismissed.
  • Accommodates triple-digit alert numbers.
  • Improved visual feedback in Multiple/Stacked mode during operation.
  • Various graphical tweaks throughout the application.

OptiFlow firmware version 8.7 includes:

Full OptiFlow manual control can now be completed on the controller panel, WeatherTRAK Mobile app or WeatherTRAK Central.
