Good app, everything working great. Not sure what the bonus is of using it instead of the standard run activity other than not having to convert to "hike" or "walk" when I get home, though. Any features coming with this that I would not get with just using the run activity setting?

Hike is for older devices, but still has a few things you won't see with run, such as the ability to mark locations (way points) and the breadcrumb trail, distance to start, etc.
Once you are recording, up/down take you through a number of different screens.

I can't use this anymore. I used to love it. Every time I try and use the app it resets my watch and also resets my steps back to 0.

What watch and fw version do you have?
2. června 2020
Have used this along with other similar apps for a while before deleting the others and solely using this. Tracks reliably, has all the info I need ( plus more) and is simple to use use.

Great app thank you!
What are the differences in the hiking or walking settings?
25. dubna 2020, jim_m_58
The only real difference how the activity shows up in Garmin Connect - as a walk or a hike.
20. dubna 2020
I found app useless as the info provided on face were not distance, time used, speed that are key for me and the only readable info while in motion was time of day. I did not find a way to adjust info. Only useful at end of hike.

There are a number of different pages and up down take to to the pages with the data you want. All the things you mention are available.

Quick and easy to use, but still offers a great deal of useful, in-depth features for tracking your hike/trail run

I love this app! I use it on my FR235.
Peter below mentioned you can change between hike and walk - can you tell me how to do that please?
4. března 2020, jim_m_58
When you first start the app, before you start recording, pressing up or down changes between walk and hike (you'll see the change on the top line of the display)

Been using this app for a year or more now and found it is the only one I need. Love the ability to switch between Walk and Hike easily.

Thank you for the great app. Has all the data I need for a hike. That's definitely worth a cold drink!

When I create waypoints during the activity. Are they lost, when I complete it?
8. prosince 2019, jim_m_58
Correct. On this version of Kike, they aren't saved for use at a later time. Hike2 does allow you to save them, but isn't available for older watches.

Love the app! As I'm in the UK, any chance of adding an option to use the UK co-ordinate system rather than degrees, minutes etc.?
26. listopadu 2019, jim_m_58
Memory in the app is is pretty much maxed out, so I won't be adding this.

Just downloaded keeps saying "waiting for GPS" on my for runner 235 and Just showing the mainscreen where i can see General info such as time - Heart beat...can't run It
25. listopadu 2019, jim_m_58
That means the watch is having a problem getting a GPS lock. Make sure you're in clear sky. You may also want to get a GPS lock with something like the "run" activity first, as it's able to show more info on the progress of getting a lock.

Perfect - so much data - waypoints are great feature, love the notifications when approaching a way point.
3. srpna 2019
Nice app!!! The only problem is that I can't lock my device's buttons (FR235) using this app. Can you do something for that? Thanks a lot
3. srpna 2019, jim_m_58
If I recall, there's really no good solution on CIQ1 devices.
18. června 2019
Great app works great. Only the last couple of weeks it seems to have problems with good gps fix. It takes much longer to get a good fix. Sometimes up to five minutes. In the past it was much faster.
18. června 2019, jim_m_58
Which watch? If there's a GPS issue, you'll see it in native activities like "run" too. On some watches, you can check EPO/CPE as one of the last screens in "about", and you want to make sure that's "current"

Used the app yesterday for a hike in the mountains. Very happy with all the info delivered.The app was running all the time..
13. června 2019
Very nice app! But what could make it perfect is possibility to enter the GPS point coordinates in order to use it as outdoor navigator to reach the targeted place! Please add it!

Used the app yesterday for a hike in the mountains. Very happy with all the info delivered on the fly. However, after I saved the activity, I found out that the last 6 km are lost, 19 km instead of 25. But the app was running all the time. What might be a problem here? (I have Forerunner 235)
8. března 2019
Molto bella, ma non riesco a convertire le miglia con i km, si può fare? per il resto utile e funzionale.
8. března 2019, jim_m_58
Miles vs kms is determined by the "distance units" set on your device. It's under settings/system/units on most devices.

Love this app! I use it every time I go for a walk/hike. It would be great to have a heart rate alarm integrated. Thank you!
2. března 2019
Love this app! For free it's fantastic, so I donated a cold drink!
Keep up the good work.

I used your app today for the first time and am very impressed of all avalaible info.
Maybe you can improve the app adding the lock screen function. I loose 45min of hiking because the app paused...
It will be really nice if we can lock the buttons (like the default function from device) so we start the activity and lock the device, so nothing can happen.
Device: forunner 230
4. února 2019, jim_m_58
This app is pretty much maxed out as far on memory on the devices it is built for, so I won't be adding new functionality.
2. ledna 2019
Brilliant app-I use it when I walk the dog (rather than running) and it is great for that. Thanks.
5. listopadu 2018
This is an excellent hiking app! Used for the first time yesterday on my FR235 and was really impressed with all the information available on each screen and especially the waypoints. I really like that when you mark a waypoint on an out-and-back hike, the app will alert you as you get close to one of your waypoints. Well done. Highly recommended.

Great app, must have
