Hi, I'm considering to buy the full version after having used it a couple of times. But in February you wrote an update was coming to add AUTO PAUSE, I haven't seen it yet...or my bad ? Could you tell me why the temperature field is empty ? Keep up the good work and I'll PayPal you.

Thanks for your feedback. We implemented the option to manually pause (which didn't exist before February). Auto pause can be something for the future, but it isn't in our plan right now and I can promise when/if it will be added. It requires the use of more logic and variables (e.g., a timer to check if your speed remained below a threshold for a couple of seconds) and, as you know, the resources are very limited. We have to be careful with the choices, and in my opinion auto-pause isn't a high priority (since the manual pause exists).

The app it´s good, but the rest it's a confusion to set up a personal layout. Must spend a lot of time with the watch to set it up. Couldn´t be much easier and faster to configurate the app through Garmin Express? Like the others? To much complicated to work with. To exit the app must press several times the back button, why?

Thanks for your feedback (although I don't understand that someone gives 2 stars for an app that he/she considers good). The way in which we structure the data, including the configuration of the screens, allows us to make a better use of the available memory. You probably won't find an app that shows so much information and allows so much customization. The drawback is that we can't use the settings from Garmin Express or Garmin Connect Mobile to configure, and so everything has to be done on the watch. Currently the app exits when you press the back key while the track screen is in the foreground, otherwise the previous screen is shown. We may consider changing this behavior in a future release. Best regards

Hi Victor. Thanks for your message. There are two eays to unlock: (1) via the companion app (iOS or Android) or (2) via payment on PayPal: http://www.paypal.me/485/5eur . More detail in the "What's new" section. Best regards

Really extends the usefulness of my Garmin 520 from just biking to other activities. And quick customer service when I needed to unlock manually. It would be a nice feature to be able to use the start and lap buttons on the device, if Garmin allow it.

The app seems nice, although there is no much info about its functioning and one has to take the time to figure it out on his own. This I did, went on a run and used the app to see how it did. Regretfully, all the changes I had made inverted themselves at mid-run and the parameters I use to control my outings vanished. The app then requested me to get the pro version. I run by controlling pace and HR, and both parameters disappeared, so I had to stop, determine what had happened, understand it was not a bug, record that part of the run, exit your app, start my usual app and resume my run. I find this intolerable. If the app is not going to work a whole session, you should advise the customer beforehand. You have no right to compromise my activities in order to let me try your product and then take it back while in use. It is totally disrespectful. If you are going to limit the use, do it right and warn about it clearly, so we can freely decide whether we want to try or not, and you should never interrupt the use while running. I would offer a limited time full use for X days or X sessions, or disable the use of certain screens and modes from the start, but never at mid race. I could give the app 4 stars because I really liked what I saw, although the app I currently use is better in ways I consider more relevant to me. I take a star away because the instructions are simply nonexistent and it takes a while of I+D just to get to the point where you know what you are dealing with before you can decide whether it is worth your interest. This simply will not do. I take a second star because the way you have to interrupt the use of the app is simply rude and inconsiderate.

Hi! Thanks for your thoroughgoing review. I fully understand your point about the features being hidden during the activity when using the free version. This is stated in the app description though ("some features will disabled after some period on the free version."). This does not affect the activity recording, it limits only the way the data is presented. In other words, you do not necessarily have to stop.

Very nice app. it has become my main hiking app. It would be nice (from a pure aesthetical point of view) to have a grid separating the different values and perhaps and a datafield indicating the quality of the gps signal.

App worked great for a hike today, til it died. I had plenty of battery and was in an open prairie when the app died. All of the data was still stored up to that point, but it did not get the final five miles of my hike.

Thanks for your feedback. I never had issues with the battery consumption on my device. In any case, I'm sure that the new version is more efficient. Please try it out and let me know!

The app is great! It's not as easy to use as the default running app, but after a while of navigating the app I found out that it does a lot more. I especially like that I can map my route while I'm running. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars, I have no idea how to upgrade to pro and the map my route only works for a little while if you haven't upgraded. I have a Vivoactive, not sure if it's just this model having problems.

Hi!! Thanks for your feedback! I'm really glad you're enjoying the app. Please read the description to find out how to unlock the Pro Version. Cheers!

I can't figure out how to start recording. When i push the UP/MENU button (920XT), the app just scrolls quickly through the different screens. No option to "Start Recording". Also the only options for activity tracking appear to be running, cycling, walk/hike and other. There's a long list in your description, which appears to be misleading.

Thank for the feedback. I added an image to the app description which makes clear how to open the menu in each device.

The app closes when you are on the first screen and press the BACK (left) button. When you aren't on that screen, pressing back will bring you to the previous screen. In practice you just have to press it a couple of times, and the app will close.

The App cannot start recording. Or just because I don't know how to start it. I am using Fenix 3.

Hi Daniel! Press and hold the UP button in order to open the menu. The first option you'll see is "Start recording activity". If you have good GPS signal, it will start recording immediately. Please let me know if you still have problems. Best regards
