Thank you for this great app. Love it.

Still quirky with PM5, F3, Garmin Connect. AMAZING but QUIRKY.
Freezes easily, and inconsistently. Causes PM5 to freeze. The start up sequence seems critical, but I haven't gotten that down yet. If you pause during an activity, it seems to make the app freeze. sTOPPING doesn't give any cues. Previously wrote to developer, but did not hear back. That said, this IS amazing that it even works at all. When working, this gets power, pulse etc. into connect. One reviewer says that it does upload to TP from there. I will findout soon enough.
If I can figure out a reproducible way to boot up and run consistently, I will surely let everyone know.
I am writing this not so much to criticize the product, but to let the developer know that she/he has an amazing product so far, but, as someone else said, not quite ready for prime time.
IN THE MEANTIME, you should try it. Maybe your configuration will work flawlessly, as some obviously do,
KEEP IT UP-- REVISE-- REVISE - REVISE -- Once running properly and consistently, there's nothing else like it.

It's awesome. Works great with my Forerunner 235. The only things I could wish for would be for the device heart rate to be sent to the PM5, and for the Connect IQ data fields to integrate with the native activity fields, but I don't think those things are currently possible, even if the developer wanted to.

Not ready for prime time. Very buggy connection and activitites frequently fail to save - if you use this app, ensure you note your workout summary on the PM5 panel before exiting the activity. Good chance you're going to have to record it manually in Garmin Connect.

I have an concept2 with PM5 (latest Firmware) and a Garmin vivoactive HR wir the ErgIQ App Android i can't connect

Not impressed as all the data is displayed in Garmin but only under IQ app data. Therefore Garmin does not record the distance by default and when synced to Strava shows no distance covered, yet go in to Garmin and the data is at the bottom of the page. Use the Erg data app on a smartphone, it syncs everything and even records the distance you have rowed

Wish it would show distance I rowed rather than the GPS distance (0mtrs) or the stroke rate.

I like this app, but it is weird and needs some improvement. I use it on my VivoActive 3 with a Concept2 Model D with a PM5.
- First what I like. I can get my watts into TrainingPeaks, so I can get a real TSS. The other data is great as well, but that leads me to what I don't like.
- Why does the GPS stay on? This messes everything up because all the fitness apps want to prioritize location data over distance/speed data. This makes it look like - for example - my 10000 meter rowing session zig-zagged for a 1/4 mile in a tiny little spot. This app should not record GPS data and should instead use only the speed and distance reported by the PM5 to my watch. If this one thing was fixed, the app would be almost perfect.
- The second issue is the interface. The pairing process is a bit annoying, but the fact that it even works at all is a miracle since my watch cannot access all this cool data normally (like power, for example). The first time I saw the pair prompt come up on my watch face I thought it was a miracle, so I'll let the awkward process go. The only other issue with the interface is that it stops the workout, ends the session, and required repairing If you ever press the stop button, then it just goes back to the activity selection screen. NO OTHER ACTIVTY ON MY WATCH WORKS THIS WAY. All the others prompt you to confirm you really are done with the workout and continue if you're not. Then they present you with a summary screen. We really need a confirmation screen.
- My final issue is where the app writes data, which is likely directly related to my first issue. For example, the SPM/Cadence is recorded in the "connectIQ" area on Garmin Connect, but not in the actual Garmin Connect slot for cadence/spm. Same with distance, speed, etc (probably related to issue #1). I have to go back an manually add all these, pulling them from elsewhere in the file. That's just plain silly.

Can I get it to log meters and display them for each workout?
Are you planing to integrate HR on hand wrist?
(PM5 and FR735XT)

Seems to work well for me. Collects a lot of useful rowing data. Seems to be one small bug where the stroke count that is on the summary screen is usually way wrong but that's a largely useless piece of data anyway. An enhancement I'd like to see is the list of 500m pace splits for each piece as part of the data. Overall though it does work great with my pm5 and my Garmin Fenix 5x! Well done!

doesnt work on my forerunner935, cant start.

Please double check the firmware version on the PM5 and manual to verify everything. If it still isn't working use the contact developer to provide more information. I'm sure the application works with the 935.

Terrible app. Doesnt work on Garmin S60. Doesnt transfr all data from PM5 to S60 either to the Garmin Connect. I cant tranfer those data to concept2 log book to. I dont recommende this app.
February 11, 2018, lcj2
Sorry to hear this application isn't working for you. Without seeing the Connect activity it's hard to determine if the data is there or not due to the way Garmin Connect handles developer data. The application data can't be transferred to the Concept2 logbook due to the way ANT works and how accurate the data is and isn't an advertised feature of the application so that is expected.

Tar för lång tid inann det går att koppla ihopp. Ca 10 min innan klockan fattar fenix 5
January 28, 2018
Finally, I can now connect my Concept2 to my Fenix3 :))

Thank you for creating such a useful and functional app. Works perfectly with my rower and I'm looking forward to using it with my new ErgBike.
