Crashes on Fenix 5X after short period of use

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.

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.

Developer Reply

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,

Love the app. Is there a way to delete saved waypoints tho?

Developer Reply
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.

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.

Developer Reply

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.

Is possible to have a metric unit system and Italian language? Thanks

Developer Reply
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.

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

Developer Reply
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.

Any plans adding map support on Edge devices?

Developer Reply
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.

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

Developer Reply
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

Esta aplicación cuenta los pasos?

Developer Reply
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

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

Developer Reply
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.

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.

Developer Reply

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.

I've installed app on VA3 and it works perfectly. Big thanks to the developer. It has everything i expected and even more

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
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.

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
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)

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.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
