On devices that track steps, it shows steps on the same screen where calories are displayed. Edge devices don't track steps, and on others, Activity tracking must be on. Change screens with up/down buttons or swipes to see the different screens

Sorry, the "GPS" option is not displayed in "Settings".

That's not available in any CIQ device app. The way it works, is it uses the setting from the last native app you used. It's nothing with Hike2 itself. Please use "contact developer" (on the right) for questions like this instead of leaving reviews.

Hike2 turns on GPS itself. If you are seeing a delay getting GPS, start something like the native run app, and wait for it to "go green". It shows better progress in getting a fix than is possible in CIQ.

Great hiking app, best one imo available. Only complaint is when I sync the watch to the phone app, the hiking activity doesn't show up anywhere in the phone app so you won't have a history of your previous hikes.

Developer Reply

It should show up under "all activities" on your phone (Activities,All Activities) Hiking doesn't have it's own category like Walking, Running, Cycling do. That's a decision by Garmin.

why do I not receive notifications, missed calls or what's apps while recording. With the original Garmin Apps it works perfectly, but yours is not showing anything...

Developer Reply

Please use "Contact Developer" and supply info such as the device you have and it's firmware version. There also is an about in the settings for most devices for what type of notifications you want to see while in an activity, so check on that. Are you sure your phone is connected at the time (see what the phone says)

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.

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. Thanks

Developer Reply
May 5, 2018, jim_m_58

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.

Good revision in the last version! I would ask: there's a way to enable/disable GLONASS mode?

Developer Reply
February 23, 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.

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.

Developer Reply
January 28, 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: 1. Resume 2. Save 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)

Developer Reply
January 28, 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.

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.

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: https://forums.garmin.com/forum/into-sports/health-fitness/vivoactive-3-aa/1284352-gps-with-iq-app-and-v2-70

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
December 3, 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.

Developer Reply

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.
