Simple and clean interface, works as expected. Currently using version 1.4.3 of the watch app, with version 1.8.4 of the phone companion app.

Sería bueno poder usar esta característica como Data Field. Así podría registrar mi actividad y recibir las notificaciones de G.Maps. ¿Qué opinas?

It's already done but as Garmin still has not fixed some problem with their SDK I'm waiting. This will only be available for fenix 5 because the data fields have restrictions below the fenix 5

Can you click the Problem button is send me log. There is a concern Garmin Connect but it may be something else for you.

Same as William, Fenix 3 hr, install OK, but I have not been able to use it so far. Impossible to uninstall... If anyone has a solution, please share!

Uninstall does not belong to my domain but from Garmin, go to garmin express

Good app. Unfortunate the vibrafoon does not work Amy more after a watch sw update and the app stops after a recalculate of Google maps. Watch: fenix5

There was a new version of the Android application yesterday normally corrected if it is not the case thank you to send me an email with a screen shot of the watch.

The vibration alarm no longer works. I tried the settings but not working. After the update, the vibration alarm stopped.

Can you send me an email [email protected] to tell me what watch you are on I do not have any problem on the vibration and there was no update of the application since September 9th.

Uninstalling is handling my garmin system, it's odd that you can not manage it. Can you send me an email [email protected] to explain to me your concern of instaintaller but also of operation. Thank you in advance.

Constantly crashes the watch and then it reboots. Had it work maybe 1 in every 5 times. Watch: Fēnix 3HR | App: v1.43

Hello, thank you for sending me an email [email protected] so that I can recover the log of the watch because it is not normal that your watch crash

Great app, it would be nice to see options to disable sound and/or vibration. Thanks for the effort.

The options exist, you have to press the parameter button for a fenix is the up button in an application that opens the parameter. If you have another watch send my an email I would find you the button

Superbe application, merci beaucoup :) La seul amélioration qui a mon sens rendrait l'application parfaite serait de pouvoir télécharger les instructions de navigation Google maps sur la montre de façon à les consulter en quittant la navigation sur le téléphone. Mais vraiment, merci beaucoup pour cette application. Je pense que je serai amené à m'en servir de temps en temps :)

Developer Reply
28 January 2019, Alexis_Lecanu

Merci beaucoup, Pour l'amélioration que vous proposez c'est techniquement irréalisable car j'utilise juste les notifications de Google Maps. Pour faire cela je devrais faire une applications de Navigation mais cela est trop long a développer et je ne pourrais être meilleur que Google Maps.

24 January 2019 | Version 1.4.3

Funktioniert bis jetzt super und sehr intuitiv. Ein bisschen Farbe bei der Anzeige/Design auf der Uhr wäre genial, am besten natürlich mit Farbwahl in den Einstellungen ;)

C'est exactement ce que je cherchais ! C'est tellement simple et pratique à utiliser !! Bravo merci ! En champs de données ce serait ultra cool !!! Et si je peux me permettre une petite proposition d'amélioration, ce serait bien que la lumière de l'écran s'active aussi à chaque Bip de notification. Voilà voilà Encore merci !

Merci du retour, pour l'éclairage il faut rester appuyer sur up pour rentrer dans les paramètre et activer l'éclairage. Pour développer en champs de données, c'est en cours mais vu qu'il y a un souci de temps en temps avec Garmin Connect j'attends qu'il corrige pour avoir un produit 100% stable

Brilliant! I've tested it today and it worked great. Slightly bigger font for distance and arrival time would be appreciated. There's room on the screen for that. The application is quite sizeable (120 kB), so I had to uninstall some software on my Vivoactive to install it, but never mind :) Maybe you could consider recording an activity in the background like biking etc.? Anyway, that's what I've been waiting for! Congratulations! Cheers!

Thank you very much, you can register an activity now but when Garmin has corrected a bug I will release the Data Fields version which is on my computer for 3 months.

Great app. Unfortunately it worked perfect the first time but now when I start a navigation, the app opens and gives me option to start, but when I hit us it just says 'start a navagation'. I have already started one and it doesn't change even if I do it and start another. Great app when it worked the first time.

Thank you for your return, can you send me a report via the button problem. There is a known problem that is due to Garmin Connect you can restart your phone to solve the problem. Garmin knows but still has not corrected the problem.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
