overall a good app but would be 5 Stars if it was a little bit of a cleaner look. However all the data is there it is just a lot of screens to swipe through. Took me some getting used to but overall the data that comes through and the integration with the connect app has been great

With app settings, you can turn off any screens you don't want to see.

This application not working on my Garmin Venu. When I turn on app "Hike2", I am waiting app, but I could just see on the screen: Waiting for GPS, GPS: None, "Menu" for startup options. This is freeze on my screen a few minutes. What should I do? Please, help me. Thanks.
June 19, 2020, jim_m_58
Sounds like the watch is having a problem getting a GPS lock. Try something like the native "run" app and wait for GPS to go green. Also, in "About" on your watch, go to the last screen and make sure CPE says "current"

So far so good. Was sad the Vivoactive didn't offer a hiking activity. This solved my problem. It saves/records as hiking in Garmin Connect along with my other fitness tracking services like Runkeeper and Strava.
Thank you, good work.

My watch didn't have a built in hiking activity app so I tried a few and found this one to be best one. Connects to GPS without issues, easy to use, easy to customize, and collects tons of data.

nice app but not easy to figure out without a good MANUAL.
would be nice to have a guide to figure out something like how to upload tracks or maps that can be used for hiking. help?
January 18, 2020, jim_m_58
You can't upload tracks or maps. It just records the activity. There's really not a lot as you start a recording, pause a recording, save/discard a recording were you can mark waypoints with the back button (same as laps in native apps)
January 11, 2020 | Version 2.72.5
Works great! Also developer is fast and responsive to my question.
December 31, 2019 | Version 2.72.4
Very Nice app! Is it possible to move and zoom the map some way on my 830? That would be very great. Or is it possible to leave the app, check some info and re enter the app without stopping tracking?
November 30, 2019 | Version 2.72.4
Not starting on vivoactive 3 music.
November 30, 2019, jim_m_58
If it's not getting GPS, try starting a native activity like "run" that uses GPS. If it's something else, please use "contact developer" on the right and indicate the firmware you're running and more details about what you are seeing.
November 26, 2019 | Version 2.72.4
Great app. I still carry a big Garmin GPS (almost doubles the weight of my pack) but it is no longer there as a recording device as this app does that! Cheers!
November 22, 2019 | Version 2.72.4
As someone else has said, the app crashed after 3h (FR245). I was on a 7h activity and I lost everything. I contacted support with information about the device to help find the issue.
November 22, 2019, jim_m_58
For this kind of thing, you really want to use contact developer at the left vs contacting Garmin. Garmin doesn't have the code and I'm the one that can help.
November 18, 2019 | Version 2.72.4
This app is great for hiking! I really like how well it tracks my elevation and details my route, along with all the other details it gives you.
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.
October 29, 2019, jim_m_58
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.
August 11, 2019 | Version 2.71.2
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.
