I wanted an app for hiking that showed plenty of details about the hike, was not complicated to use and provided reliable data. Well Hike2 does all of that and has the added benefit of being free! Pretty surprising for an app of this quality. It’s been working great on my VA3. I was also pleasantly surprised by the quality and speed of the support. I asked them several different questions and they were all answered within a few hours. I highly recommend this app and this developer.

Gute Wander App. Würde eine deutsche Übersetzung gut finden. Autopause gibt es wohl keine?
20 May 2018 | Version 2.53
I used it for a 13-day walk and it worked perfectly fine! Everything you need!

I like the latest review, however - I noticed that the floors climbed vibration comes up quite a lot! It didn't used to do it as much, is there any way to adjust/customize how often it vibrates? or to turn off the vibration for floors climbed? It feels like a bit too much.

That happens when the firmware thinks there was a floor up or down. While in Hike2, there is a general setting for vibrations/tones, there's not one that specific to each type of message like this. In settings, you can turn off "Dot for Floors" and this will also turn off the message for floors (and their location on the chart), but the count will still show on the floor/intense minutes screen.

Everything you need for serious walking without gimmicks or flashy graphics. Works well on FR645.

Tolle App verwende sie sehr häufig Höhenmessung sehr gut und auch die anderen Funktionen sehr gut nur wieder so
28 March 2018 | Version 2.52
Отличное приложение! Сегодня протестировал. Впечатления самые лучшие. Спасибо за труд! Удачи Вам!
26 March 2018 | Version 2.52
Lots of useful info, good presentation, many customization options.
23 February 2018 | Version 2.50
Good revision in the last version!
I would ask: there's a way to enable/disable GLONASS mode?
23 February 2018, jim_m_58
That's based on what was last used in native apps (like running), and isn't something I can do from Connect IQ.
28 January 2018 | Version 2.14
Great app. I have used it for more than one year on my va hr. Recently, I noticed that the lap function is not available. Not sure, if you removed it or it would not work on the device.
28 January 2018, jim_m_58
There is auto lap function that is off by default, and the lap key itself is used to mark waypoints.

Hike2 is my favourite app.
It ha s only one defect, imho:
It would be a good thing if - when we pause - we can have a
summary scrolling screen and below (pushing "down" button) the three options:
3. Resume Later
like other native-preinstalled apps by Garmin.
That would make complete Hike2 and allow to save more battery during longer breaks (like in the lunch break)
28 January 2018, jim_m_58
When you pause (the resume/dave/discard screen), you can press the back button, and see all the screens you can see when you aren't paused (with an indicator you are paused). Press start again brings back the menu, where you can resume.
"resume later" isn't possible with Connect IQ applications.
22 January 2018 | Version 2.14
I am not sure yet whether this app will accomplish what I want, which is to have a map of my route from start to finish that will allow me to backtrack along a path until I get back to my starting position. The reason I am unsure still is that following a path back to a way point is not super easy without a compass superimposed on the path showing me the direction to go.
Also I am not sure what you mean by the field labeled "sun up". That sounds like sunrise, but it seems to me what you really mean is that once the sun is up, that is how much day light I have until sunset, since any other interpretation makes no sense because where I live sunrise is 7:38 am and sunset is 5:38, and the other fields state "sunrise in 5:25, sun up: 9:59"

Hello, I love this app, but lately it didn't record a 3h GPS track despite having fixed GPS in 2 occasions. It is a bit confusing as well to know if you resumed correctly after you paused, pushing the button on va3 should resume tracking but it didn't, had to chose resume on screen. I had some boot loops with my watch, so the bug with GPS track not being recorded may not be linked to the application however using walk native app did record correctly the end of my hike. A bit concerned about app reliability now, but will test again.
24 December 2017, jim_m_58
There is a bug in th 2.70 Firmware on the va3 that impacts all CIQ apps that use GPS. We just have to wait for a firmware update. Here's a thread about it:
22 December 2017 | Version 2.11.2
Downloaded. Can't see how i change user setting...? I have a fenix 5s. Any advice?
22 December 2017, jim_m_58
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.
06 December 2017, jim_m_58
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.
03 December 2017 | Version 2.11.2
A greet app. But how to quit/exit app on vivoactive 3?
03 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.
29 November 2017 | Version 2.11.2
Love the functionality, but it eats the watch’s battery life. A 4 hour hike took up 90% of the battery charge.
29 November 2017, jim_m_58
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.
13 August 2017 | Version 0.10.1
Good app. Works well when hiking. Like being able to set waypoints and also see track.
14 July 2017 | Version 2.09.1
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.
14 July 2017, jim_m_58
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.
03 July 2017 | Version 2.08b
Not working on Vivoactice HR - just waiting on GPs
09 July 2017, jim_m_58
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.
02 July 2017 | Version 2.08b
always waiting for GPS signal
10 July 2017, jim_m_58
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.
11 June 2017 | Version 2.08
salve grande app. vorrei solo sapere come si può mettere in pausa durante l'attività mi sarebbe molto utile
14 March 2017 | Version 2.05a
Definitely the best hiking app I have come across. The latest version is just amazing!
Thanks so much!!!
06 February 2017 | Version 2.05a
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
23 January 2017 | Version 2.03.3
Most useful app I have on my watch. It's very accurate. Easy to use. Good information tracking.
