October 29, 2019 | Version 2.72.4
Some may say I'm being harsh, but an app that crashes mid activity is definitely not worth more than 2 stars. This happened my last 2 activities when I received a notification. This app only.

This is a case where "Contact Developer" at the right should be used, as there's no indication of what device you have, the FW you are running, etc. so it can be investigated.
The app itself is being used by others with no problem, but without more info, there's nothing I can do.
October 29, 2019 | Version 2.72.4
Great apps for hiking. All info are recorded accordingly but I found out that VO2 MAX info is blank whenever this app is used. All other built in activities are recorded in VO2 Max. It is great if this can be included?
October 13, 2019 | Version 2.72.3
Kann ich auf der venu nicht beenden. Schade.
October 13, 2019, jim_m_58
There's a bug in the FW for both the venu and va4 that impacts this app as well as others. In the mean time, turning the watch off an on when it's stuck gets out of this, and your activity has been saved just fine.
for things like this, please use "contact developer" on the right, as it's really not this app and there's no reason for a bad review. It's the firmware.
October 9, 2019 | Version 2.72.3
Can't exit out of it on Vivoactive 4s. Have to restart watch to exit program. Uninstalled.
October 9, 2019, jim_m_58
There seems to be in issue with the current FW on a va4. After you've saved the hike and are stuck, power off the watch. You won't lose anything, but it's a work-around for now.
September 22, 2019 | Version 2.72.2
app stopped running. i reinstalled it few times, but constantly stucks on display showing 'IQ' with yellow exclamation point.
September 22, 2019, jim_m_58
Try doing a reboot of the wathc. On some, it's holding the light button for about 20 seconds until the watch turns itself off. On the vahr, you hold the left button the same way.

Hike2+ is the ultimate hiking app. I've been using it for quite a while and was never disappointed, or had issues/crashes. It creates activities that sync and work with garmin connect without any issues. Can fully recommend!
June 30, 2019 | Version 2.71.2
Crashes on Fenix 5X after short period of use
June 30, 2019, jim_m_58
Please use "Contact Developer and provide some info such as what version of firmware you're running and what you're doing when it crashes.
June 29, 2019 | Version 2.71.2
Worked well for short hikes, but anything over an hour it freezes the watch (Vivoactive 3 Music) and won't save/show the hike. Activity doesn't show up anywhere when I sync to Garmin Connect. Disappointing because I liked it other than this.
June 29, 2019, jim_m_58
That sounds like a problem with the firmware on the watch with the freeze and the sync failure. Please use "contact developer" at the right and let me know which firmware you are running,
June 11, 2019 | Version 2.71.2
Love the app. Is there a way to delete saved waypoints tho?
June 11, 2019, jim_m_58
When you first start the app, press menu, and one of the options is "Load WPs". If you change that to "no" the waypoints aren't loaded/used.
May 18, 2019 | Version 2.71.2
Just tried it out during hiking and it is the first application that makes my watch to crash after a few pause/resume.
All the information you need is available (and even more), but it could be more concise instead of switching betweens screens.
May 18, 2019, jim_m_58
Please use "contact developer" at the right for things like this, and let me know things like which watch and firmware version. As far as the number of screens, that's configurable using Garmin Express or Garmin Connect on your phone.
February 6, 2019 | Version 2.69.2
Is possible to have a metric unit system and Italian language? Thanks
February 6, 2019, jim_m_58
Statute or metric as based on the settings on your watch. Under "Settings-System-Units"
This app is only available in English.
January 13, 2019 | Version 2.68
Great app, love it!
But can we get an option to turn off elevation alerts? It's not needed for me to have it vibrate every time I climb up or down... I know I'm climbing anyway! :D
January 13, 2019, jim_m_58
In app settings, turn off the "Dots for Floors On Chart"). The wording changed to
"Floors Alert and Show on chart" in the current version.
So you can already turn it off.
January 5, 2019 | Version 2.68
Any plans adding map support on Edge devices?
January 6, 2019, jim_m_58
Yes, for the edge 1030, but it's taking a bit longer than for the fenix 5x and fenix 5+ devices.
January 2, 2019 | Version 2.67
After two days of attempts of registering my track I've uninstalled it and chose another one.
I used it on a Vivoactive 3. It got continuously paused while I was moving (a vibration informed me every time of them). It lost a lot of the gps and altitude data. I'm sorry to give a bad review but my experience with this app has not been so good. There are others that offer more and that I used with no problems
January 2, 2019, jim_m_58
I'm not sure what you mean by "registering my track". The only way to pause the app is by pressing the button, so it shouldn't happen randomly. Are you sure you are seeing this with Hike2 and not another app? Please use Contact Developer so we can sort this out
October 7, 2018 | Version 2.64
Esta aplicación cuenta los pasos?
October 7, 2018, jim_m_58
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
October 2, 2018 | Version 2.64
Sorry, the "GPS" option is not displayed in "Settings".
October 2, 2018, jim_m_58
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.
September 21, 2018 | Version 2.63
Good app as per reviews however not able to locate option to switch on GPS. I have tried means available but not able to do it.
September 21, 2018, jim_m_58
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.
September 19, 2018 | Version 2.63
I've installed app on VA3 and it works perfectly. Big thanks to the developer. It has everything i expected and even more
September 9, 2018 | Version 2.63
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.
September 9, 2018, jim_m_58
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.
August 31, 2018 | Version 2.62
July 29, 2018 | Version 2.62
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...
July 29, 2018, jim_m_58
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)
July 27, 2018 | Version 2.62
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.
July 25, 2018 | Version 2.62
Gute Wander App. Würde eine deutsche Übersetzung gut finden. Autopause gibt es wohl keine?
May 20, 2018 | Version 2.53
I used it for a 13-day walk and it worked perfectly fine! Everything you need!

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.
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.
