9. januar 2019 | Version 1.7
Impossible to remove once installed
12. november 2018 | Version 1.6
inaccurate and very un-friendly to use
i purchased the quatix5 for sail racing, but with this app it's useless
tried to contact the developer, with no response
6. november 2018 | Version 1.6
If we consider the cost of the Quatix 5 and the mission of this watch....the vote in ZERO.
THe apple watch with a 4 euros app is 10 times better than this.

Bigger numbers and Instructions Manual plus an easier way to begin a new procedure will help a lot!!

Why I can't set current speed? I see only max.
And you must do it any Instructions to know how to use this app.
9. august 2018 | Version 1.5-upd6
Things to make it better:
Starting line. Why pin first?. it would be perfect if you can choose what point of the starting line you are introducing.
Waypoint of the upwind objective by polars. introducing the distance an course to it. Then the app can show distance to the lay line because you have the tacking angle.
Other waypoints, some regattas are not always upwind and downwind.
Map with the track.

Just too difficult to use. i couldn't find an easy way of coming out of the app, Awful app.
Garmin should really be doing better than this. i'm swapping to Suunto, their software is miles better.

First of all fix the port-starborard order to setting the line.
Second one, it would be intresting when you donload the track that the line will be drawn on it.
And I agree with one comment that it would be fine no to have to go out of the app to start another race.

Good app - but why ping the start line from the pin end first? Good in theory but this wasnt developed by a racing sailor clearly.
If you ping the boat end first, and *then* the pin, you can run the line on starboard tack which makes life easier in the prestarts.
If you must, it would be good to store the marks and then flip them around if they are entered in the other way around.

Seems to work ok. Would be nice to have beeps on the start timer. Throughout the numbers are too small. It isn't possible to just start a new race which is odd, need to exit to start another race. Would like to be able to see a track of the race. Would be nice if we could put current in.

please a manual that explains how to use. I did not even know how to get out of the app.
11. marts 2018 | Version 1.5-upd4
It was a Nice app, ping the start line, showing lift, perfect.
But now it crashes every time.
Can it be fixed?!
7. marts 2018 | Version 1.5-upd4
Garmin: ehat are you doing?
do i need to know calorie and altitude for sailing?
i need angle from real wind direction
i need BIG display countdown
i need a stop watch
i need a map in the back of my trak
i need NOT to use my iphone to see tides
i need an stand alone device that has nothing to do with a stupid telephone
p.s. i hate golf
5. februar 2018 | Version 1.5-upd2
GPS track seems to be ok. But I dont get why to track elevation changes while sailing? And it keep counting steps while sailing.
Come on Garmin!
21. november 2017 | Version 1.5-upd1
l appli ne permet pas d avoir les autre fonction de la montre
7. november 2017 | Version 1.4-upd
No option to Navigate when using app, have to fully exit app to look at general watch data. If this had the features of the original Quatix watch it would be fantastic. This app and the Quatix 3 are no good for serious sailing
13. august 2017 | Version 1.3-upd
Crashes watch on the start every time
9. august 2017 | Version 1.3-upd
Fairly good app for single dinghy races if you just need to have a countdown to start and record the gps track.
Would be good to have a time of day screen available or the ability to configure screens/data fields
10. juni 2017 | Version 1.3
Pinging the start line forces you to ping the port end first. Sometimes that is not practical. Heading and speed are also important during a start sequence. It takes too many button presses to exit the device. Why can't I edit the data fields and pages? Why can't I access Navigation to input waypoints or courses?
8. juni 2017 | Version 1.3
I have been using this app for dinghy racing. So far I've only used the start timer. It works well for that purpose. However, the problem that I have is that it seems impossible to reset the timer between races. I just keep mashing buttons until it finally gets me to a screen that allows me to exit the entire app and restart it. Its not even obvious how to exit the app. Usually do not have time to focus on watch for several minutes trying to exit the application while sailing around waiting for next start. I have downloaded the GPS tracks and they looked accurate. That is a nice feature.
24. marts 2017 | Version 1.2
I've only played with this so far while travelling in a car but its a nice concept. it would be good to have an optional map/track plot.
Strangely since updating this app today it is now called "Sail Race" on my F3HR, but it still has a cruise mode.
I plan on using this for kiteboarding and can see a lot of potential for plotting tacks to maximize upwind travel.
23. januar 2017 | Version 1.1-upd1
On my fenix3 once launched the App can't be stopped! Please fix this bug.
24. december 2016 | Version 1.1-upd1
Garmin, why this app is not like other apps you developed e.g Walk, Run, Bike, etc, can be selected under "Navigation" functions of Fenix 3. There's waypoints and route/course stored in the device. Now I have to use "Row" as activity instead.
I am not sure whether it's because you try to protect the Quatix 3 product line or what. But really frustrating.
9. december 2016 | Version 1.1-upd1
the app work good in my quatix 3, but I don t understand, what to say
LIFT, pleasse if samebody can to explicate to me? thanks.
29. oktober 2016 | Version 1.1-upd
As the other reviewers state, the main app driving this "sailing" watch should be the Sail app. It is so underwhelming. The IQReceiver App offered the chance to transfer waypoints but is only available on android and is by a nonfunded developer. It looks like this is what is causing the IQ screen error because it won't allow real time data collection at the same time. I have turned it off to see if it stops the error. However, Garmin are at risk of having to refund a lot of Quatix 3's as they are very expensive and not yet fit for purpose. Get moving Garmin. The clock is ticking!
