Great Widget! I use it to get a fast GPS position for my watchface to calculate the sunrise and sunset times. Thanks a lot for this nice tool.

Nice app! Love it as it is simple but complete. Nothing to add.

Hi thanks for the App. But I don’t need the unit changer option and it’s just a nuisance and would be nice to select Off.

is it possible to improve the application with the name of the location based on GPS coordinates?

Hi, Garmin does not expose satellite information like that to Connect IQ Developers. I’d love to add it, if it was available.

I'll add my voice to the list requesting UTM WGS84. Otherwise, it'd be great.

Developer Reply

In the future just shoot me an email if you have a question: The same way you change any other connect IQ app settings: 1. Select “Garmin Devices” from the main menu. 2. Select the device for which you want to change the settings. 3. Select Connect IQ Apps. 4. Select the type of App. 5. Select the App for which you want top to change the settings. 6. Select “Settings” 7. Select the field that you want to edit.

Great apps, i hope on the next updates we can see the gps accuracy in meters...

Great App. Best GPS location app I've found. Agree with other users it would be great to get a space in the MGRS coordinates or UTM WGS84 to make the coordinates more readable. Otherwise perfect!

Why Fénix 5 does not show ccordinates in Format Grades, Minutes and Seconds? Fénix 5 only show coordinates in Grades

Every device has the same options available, including the Fenix 5. These are configured through Garmin Connect Mobile, or Garmin Express.

Cool app... in mgrs is it possible to male a Space in "Lat" "long" for faster reading and eliminating the risk of error :) alternative make first number in a slightly different colour... keep up the good work...

Very nice widget! Is it possible to have the altitude derived from the GPS rather than the barometer?

Developer Reply
30 October 2017, GriffW

The altitude used is the one that is specified in the settings. I cannot choose which one to use, it depends on the user.

Sweet! Does what it says. Two requests, though: (1) Is it possible to add a field showing the GPS accuracy? (2) Is it possible to keep the widget "open" indefinitely? On my Fenix3 it times-out after a period and returns to the watch-face. Thanks!

Developer Reply

GPS accuracy is already shown in the top left. Widgets can never be open indefinitely. But apps can, and I have an app version of this already on the store.

UTM WGS84 coordinates are really needed. These are the most often used coordinates by GPS devices and by maps publishers. Thanks in advance!

Great little widget - hugely useful as I am a field geologist. Would it be possible to have the option to use different coordinate systems, instead of just longitude and latitude? i.e. UTM WGS84?

Great widget and works like a charm on Fenix 5X. Well done
