Great app. Shows all the data I need and even a lot more. Although it`s a lot of data, these are presented clearly and easy to read. Developer reacts quickly to suggestoins and questions. Best windsurf-app I ever tried (checked two others and used cycling-app for windsurfing before). I will definitly stay this one. Worth any pence. Only problem is that the large amount of data is not shown in garmin connect. So you have to check directly after session, before closing and saving. In garmin connect the usual data (speed, distance, heartbeat, temperature, ...) are shown but not the special windsurfing-information of the app (best 10sec, best 250m, best 500m, number of jibes, sail used, wind axis ...). According to developer this is a garmin problem, affecting other apps, too. Last weak I cul at least see some additional data (best 10sec, best 250m, best 500m), but after an update these data are not shown anymore.

Hello Thomas and thanks for your comment. The problem of data not displayed in Garmin Connect is not related to the application but to a current problem with Garmin. A ticket concerning this issue has been opened on the forum and it concerns in fact a whole majority of applications, data fields, etc. We are all waiting for a general fix

Nice looking app, but not accurate. The jumps a far from accurate and also airtime is not. Disappointed, try to mail but didn't get an answer. Maybe by this way!

Hello Ron. First, I always answer to the emails I receive but, sometimes, I can not answer them right away because I'm not always available for that, and your last email was only a day ago... Secondly, I never pretended the accuracy of jumps was perfect, and I'm always trying to improve the code in order to get better results but, the accuracy depends also of the watch sensors equipped by your watch, that can differ regarding the model you use (some models are more accurate than the others) and for that, it's quite difficult to obtain a good average accuracy for all the Garmin models (in a perfect world, I should provide a special app for each model, that's obviously impossible...). However, after a lot of tests in real conditions, we can say that the average accuracy of my app, for an average of all the Garmin models, is between the two external dedicated sensors, the Woo and the Piq but, unfortunately, some users can be out of the average range.

I have been using this app for windsurfing for several months now after having used som of the other free apps and this developer's simpler datafield. I have found it highly effective for gathering information about about my session. The app records and analyses many parameters while you are on the water and you can access these on the watch, or later on Garmin Connect Mobile, and the web version of Garmin Connect. So much data on the watch screens means the text is small, so I am grateful for the large text summary screen option, which I can use on the water and leave my specs on the beach. I also like being able to enter wind strength, direction and sail size on the beach without having to do so using the phone to do the input. I am impressed by the regular updates and added features of this app. Also, the developer responds quickly to questions or requests for added features. For me, this is the best paid for app on my watch (or my phone!). Since I started windsurfing in 1977 I dreamed of some way of recording speed, jumps and gybes. The combination of this app and the Fenix 5 is the realisation of that dream and more.

I appreciate the easier handling and temporarily saved values of wind direction, -speed, sail size. Please improve the graph of the jibe speed. Maybe get rid of it completely and plot the jibe speed figures for each leg in a list view. Maybe you can add Time/ distance Planing vs non planning. What is the difference between speed and velocity; there is non, so why don’t delete? Would it actually possible to have various sections / colours for the path, whereas the sections/ colours state the various velocities. So one can see straight away the fastest legs, etc I still have touch screen issues. it can be paused any time unfortunatelly Best regards

"Maybe get rid of it completely and plot the jibe speed figures for each leg in a list view" = impossible with Garmin SDK; "What is the difference between speed and velocity; there is non, so why don’t delete?" = ???; "Would it actually possible to have various sections / colours for the path, whereas the sections/ colours state the various velocities" = impossible with Garmin SDK

aimed high, but... a lot of features doesnt work properly. by the end you get velocity, path, heartbeat and the wind efficiency, if set up. there are free apps on the market which actually give you the jibing speed... so please fix the features and focus on intuitive handling

"a lot of features doesn't work properly": which ones ? You don't argue your allegation; "by the end you get velocity, path, heartbeat and the wind efficiency, if set up": ??? There is no IA inside the app, how do you want the app to know some data (like wind direction) if you do not enter them manually ?; "there are free apps on the market which actually give you the jibing speed": yes, probably but, do they also give all the other information that my application gives ? I doubt...

Isnt there trial version? Only the paid one?? O own a fênix 5x... Will this app record and show my heart rate data?

Developer Reply

There is no more a trial version (which was effective the first 3 months). And yes, this app records heart rate and save it with graph representation into the FIT file

Great job Surfy66. All kite/wind surfers thank you! I'd rather name this app 'kite/wind surf" as I got it using a long serching path from the US Garmin forum ... because JMG-APP do not intentionally refers with surfing ;)

Very good app! Almost flawless bat... Drilling battery very fast. Need a lot of energy. During two sessions 2 x 2,5 h baterry allmost empty. Please add functionality for wave riders! Aloha! Wind and waves forewer !

Developer Reply
August 26, 2018, Surfy66

Hell and thanks for your comment. I'm not sure if the battery consumption is related to the app or to the device model, because I did not notice that on my own watch. However, you would like to have features for wave riders but, what about your battery life then ? And what kind of features would you like to have ? You can send me an email to explain your suggestions, I will answer you.

Hi! why when start a session the application ask me of purchase the app? ( the cost is 15 usd) Why don't i user the free app ? thanks

Hello. This application was free during a 10-minute trial period from its launch until the end of July (3 months). This application represents a lot of work and time to develop it, and if you want to check all the features and the quality of the app, you can consult my dedicated website and all the comments + stars posted about this app, this will give you a good idea of its potentiality. However, you can use the JMG-DTF WindKite Surf datafield, which is free but with fewer features.

Thanks a lot TheJMG for your comment. In fact, I try to put all my best in this app to satisfy the best this great community of windsurfers and kitesurfers, which I also belong to. Happy surfing !

This is the first app for Garmin Devices that uses the accelerometer to determine the jump height for kitesurfers! Well done JM! The app shows all the information you need and more. Unfortunately there is so much information, that you can not read it while driving (to small). Now JM has introduced the wide/minimalist screen which you should definitely turn on. I asked JM to show the time of the day and yes there it is, big on the wide screen. The app would be perfect, if you could choose to see the height of the last jump instead of the speed on the wide/minimalist screen. It would perfect if one could choose this in the options for the wide/minimalist screen.

Thanks Dani for your comment, happy to please you. In fact, your suggestion, and more, is already implemented to the code since the version 1.27

Tester aujourd'hui en twintip et surf ! L'application a l'air de très bien fonctionner avec des hauteurs de sauts qui semblent cohérents... Quelques petits bugs constatés : j'ai eu du mal à changer les différentes pages en fonctionnement (mais peut-être est-ce ma fenix 3 qui rame un peu...). Il manque peut-être une fonction "pause" pour ne pas se retrouver avec 4 sessions le même jours... Sinon, si l'appli se montre à la hauteur de ce qu'elle promet, elle va faire un malheur !!! Good job !

Developer Reply
May 10, 2018, Surfy66

Merci Arnaud pour votre commentaire apprécié ! La fonction "pause" existe déjà: il vous suffit juste de cliquer sur le bouton LAP lorsque la session a été lancée, et celle-ci se mettra alors en mode pause (les petites billes colorées passent alors à la couleur orange). Pour reprendre la session, cliquer à nouveau sur ce même bouton LAP. Concernant le changement de pages, cela est effectivement probablement dû à la vitesse du proc de la Fenix 3, car aucun problème constaté à ce niveau sur la Fenix 5.

Excellent as usual, tested in real conditions works very well. It is a must have when you do Kite surfing, and useful to see the results in Garmin connect after the session. Thanks a lot !
