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...

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 !

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

Very good app for Kite&Windsurfing! New essential screen works good on the water when you just wanted to see time and speed! Thanks to JM!

Needs an extra star for being a great app that works really well, tells me everything I could want while windsurfing, Where, What, How Fast, How Far, How Well!! So nice to have your sport represented on a great smart watch. Well Done... Really well done.

Phantastik App. Great work. Tested it on Lago di Como today. Works like a charm.

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 !

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 !
