Downloaded. Can't see how i change user setting...? I have a fenix 5s. Any advice?

There are a couple things you change on the watch itself -like white or black background. On the f5x, long press the up button to get a menu for those. The majority of settings you change with your phone or Garmin Express. Here's a simple guide to using app settings: https://forums.garmin.com/forum/developers/connect-iq/connect-iq-showcase/115055-how-to-app-settings

Works great on my vivoactive3 with a lot of useful info. However it consumes a lot of battery. What I usually see: - ~1% per h in watch mode (with activity tracking on), - ~10% per h in the native run mode (GPS), - ~20% per h with this app (Is it possible that some screen consumes more than others ? asking because I spent a lot of time using the compass or the track) Would love to have a ascension rate (m/min). Thanks for this good app.

The compass, the screens with graphs, and the "chart" screen do more when updatings. You may want to go back to something like the main screen when you're not looking at one of those screens.

A greet app. But how to quit/exit app on vivoactive 3?

Developer Reply
3 December 2017, jim_m_58

On a va3, "back" is a right swipe. That will exit the app before you are recoding of after you've saved/discarded the hike. while recording, it's also how you mark waypoints.

Love the functionality, but it eats the watch’s battery life. A 4 hour hike took up 90% of the battery charge.

what watch? I get a min of about 8hrs on vivoactives, and more on a Fenix. It should be very similar to something like the native running app in battery usage.

Good app. Works well when hiking. Like being able to set waypoints and also see track.

Hike 2 is a nice app! I use it on my Fenix 5X whenever i hike! Please enable it to display map just like what Garmin's build-in hike app does, at least.

Developer Reply

I would if I could! CIQ apps can't access the actual maps on the f5x or Edge, Oregon, or Rino. I'd love to add this to the app if I could.

Not working on Vivoactice HR - just waiting on GPs

Developer Reply

Make sure you can get a GPS fix with something like the native run app. If not, try turning your device off and back on. Also, make sure you are in a location outside, as if you are in a building or shelter, it may cause problems with GPS. If you've not used GPS in a while, it can take 5+ minutes to get a fix.

See the response above. It's something with your watch or your location and not Hike2 itself. Use contact developer on the right if you want additional help.

Tried a few for hiking / walking this is by far the best I can tune in what i want or drop the othets. The breadcrumb is very important for hiking or biking as we are off the beaten path. I wish for a complete set of instructions as going to the forum is getting it in pieces. I thank the developer for a very useful app for my vivoactive HR

Stuck on the "Waiting for GPS" screen. There seems to be a problem with accessing the GPS. VAHR v3.30 (GPS v3.00)

Developer Reply
18 December 2016, jim_m_58

You likely can't get GPS in a standard app from that location, as I'm just telling the firmware to start GPS. Turning the watch off and both on should resolve both or change your location a bit.

I can't enter the menu. How do I do that? I have a Forerunner 735XT

On a 735XT (and the 230 and 235), menu is a long press of the up button.

I like it and it works great. Just wat's needed for a longer walk. Just I don't know how to upload a set of waypoints (turning points on a planned walk). Is there any detailed description (or I'm blind?)? An enhancement would be to integrate with uploaded tracks.

This is a fantastic app! Would be near-perfect it it were possible to display coordinates in BNG format - any chance of adding that? http://www.bgs.ac.uk/data/webservices/convertform.cfm

It's great on my VAHR. However, despite what the compatibility list says, it does not show up on my Fenix 3 IQ Market, so I couldn't install it there. Perhaps instead of "Fenix chronos" it should say "Fenix 3" and "Fenix 3 HR", who knows...

Developer Reply
7 November 2016, jim_m_58

The fenix chronos (which is CIQ 2.x) is the only one in the fenix family that's supported. With the f3 and f3-hr (CIQ 1.3) there's not enough memory on them. The list of compatible devices is correct. Hike2 is only for CIQ 2.x devices.

App runs great on my VivoActive HR. Very easy to use and informative. My ONLY complaint is the font is way to small, to the point that without my reading glasses the apps almost not usable for me. Would be great if the number of screen could be configured and the fonts made about the size of the built in Garmin apps.
