I can't believe I donated to this disappointing app. I used this app on a hike from Tres Cime in the Dolomites. It recorded a 4.5 mile hike(mostly all descent) as 1.87 miles. Fortunately I had Gaim GPS running on my phone to record the actual descent. https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/3036511502 https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/3062376328

I took a look at the results. For me it looks that the Auto-Pause mode is active. This is indicated by a yellow pause signal. During Auto-Pause no session recording is done. This has impact to several data fields like distance, ascending, descending, session time, etc. Please disable the feature in the app settings by setting Auto Start/Stop limit to 0.

Habe Hiking, Swimming und Running Premium gekauft und finde die Apps super und das alles für kleines Geld Die Swimming App habe ich jetzt 7 Wochen lang täglich im Meer mit der Garmin Vivoactiv HR getestet. Einfach für mich perfekt. Großes Kompliment an den Entwickler. Zur Running App eine Frage: gibt es eine Lösung GPS wie bei der Hiking App auf Ultratrac umstellen um Akku zu sparen?

Great, but what GPS power option is closest to "smart" for the default app?

Hi I love the app, got the paid version. Is there an autolap function? I can't see one anywhere

This app is really great. Just a quick glance and all the information you need is there. No need to dig out your phone and unlock it. The fields are easily customizable with lots of choices. And a quick response when I had a question.

Ich nutze die Cycling-, die Cross-Country- und die Hiking-App. Alle drei Apps sind richtig toll. Bei der Hiking-App fehlt mir lediglich der Lap-Mode. Wäre sehr schön, wenn dieser in der nächsten Version enthalten wäre. In den anderen Apss ist er ja auch drin. Weiter so, vielen Dank.

Although the application says that the data field changes have been successfully updated, they never are. The data fields stay with the default values

Erstmal Super App. Habe mir Premium für alle Apps gekauft um die Entwicklung voranzutreiben. Habe vivoactive3 und viele Apps sind noch nicht kompatibel. Bei dieser App fehlen im Vergleich zu anderen Apps: 1. Waypoints erstellen. 2. Die App kurzzeitig zu verlassen um andere Widgets einzusehen (mit Swype nach rechts). 3. Eigene Datenfelder einbinden oder zumindest eine Kartendarstellung der Route. Zumindest konnte ich diese Einstellungen nicht finden. Ansonsten sehr übersichtlich und gut lesbar. Volle Punkte, wenn die fehlenden Funktionen ergänzt wurden (gibt es ja bei anderen, kostenlosen Apps auch)

Diese App ist einfach super. Ich benutze auf meiner Garmin fenix 3 HR die Cycling und die Hiking App in der Premium Verision (Early Bird) und eigentlich meist nur die 7 Field View. Diese kann ich so konfigurieren, dass ich wirklich alle für mich relevanten Informationen immer direkt sehe. - PERFEKT !!! Das Einzige was ich schade finde ist dass ich die heruntergeladenen Apps offenbar nicht in die Garmin-Interne Multisport App integrieren kann. Sie werden dort einfach nicht angeboten, sondern nur die Garmin Standard Apps. Ich fahre oft mit dem Rad zum Berg, steige dann rauf und runter und dann mit dem Rad wieder nach Hause. Dazu bietet Garmin eigentlich die Multisport-App an, mit der ich zwischen versch. Apps hin- und herswitchen kann, und ich schlussendlich aber nur 1 Activity habe. Wenn ich die Hiking und Cycling App verwenden will, muss ich dazu jetzt 3 Actitivies verwenden (2x Cycling und 1x Hiking). Geht das wirklich nicht, oder mache ich was falsch ?

I go hiking once or twice a week. I like the app but I never checked the accuracy before. Last week I was on a peak In Waterton National park. There was another couple on top and we compared the altitude and the hiking app said I was 75 meters lower than his GPS and I also compared with the write up on the peak and mine was definitely out by 75 meters. The other thing is the hike was 19 .3 kms and the app only registered about 10,000 steps. in my estimation only about 1/2 the steps it should have registered. Does the premium version have more accuracy?

My favorite hiking app. Very flexible as every field can get one of the many relevant data-options. The altitude graph is nice; gives added value compared to a datafield one otherwise could make/use with the same info

Nachdem ich zunächst die MTB-App installiert und getestet habe, habe ich mir nun auch die Hiking-App installiert. Messungen und Angaben fantastisch. Danke

This is just the perfect hiking app: multiple configurable information screens give me exactly the information I need when I need it. Works flawlessly.

I just ruined a perfect day. After 6 hours of hiking it stopped and lost all the data. Now I am no longer able to show how and where I carried my daughter at the age of 6 monts. The data dit not record and the software somehow disappeared from the garmin HR.

I simply don´t know how such comments could improve the quality of the app as you do not provide any details what happened. Did you run out of battery, or did the app crashed? Which watch type you are using? Which firmware is installed? Please provide that feedback, then I can help.

i think it is geat app for my 920 xt, but i have a problem with distance. Todaday i went for a walk with this app and endomondo on my phone. Endomondo showed me 3.3 km and this app showed 2.56 km. it is to much diference for me. ich have gps in low power mode (20% gps on). is it the cause?

Developer Reply

When you select a low-power mode then distance is derived from the accelerator sensor which is not very precise. I will make further tests to find a good compromise between precision and low-power but there are physical limits!

super app, habe mir die professional als early bird nach den ersten problemlosen tests gekauft. stürzt nicht ab, macht einfach was es soll. besonders wichtig für mich war die gute ablesbarkeit im 2 datenfeldmodus ohne lesebrille!

Great app! Glad I purchased. Display is easier to read than some of the others that display this much info on one screen. Love that I can choose from a huge list of options what information I want displayed.
