427 vs 472

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

My recent attempt to fix a problem with Regenradar not displaying the correct location failed ;) The problem occured due to a size change of the radar images provided by wetteronline. The displayed position is calculated from the longitude and latidue provided by the iphone GPS combined with the known longitude and latitude of two cities (Hamburg und Munich) and their position on the image (in pixels). When the size of the image changed, this pixel position of the cities needed to be udpated. While reading off the new positions from the image I introduced a typo, putting down 427px for Munich where it should have been 472px. So, while when being in Hamburg the position was correct, the further away the worse the position got.

tl;dr – new fixed version is on the way (1.3.6). I will test it today and will send it to Apple for review tomorrow.

[UPDATE] Update has been submitted to Apple, now we have to wait …

[UPDATE] Update is now available in the App Store. Please let me know about your experience (e.g. is the positioning now working as expected)
