Excellent data field for watches that otherwise have no routing/mapping capability! And I love the compass feature. This data field was very useful while mountaineering recently - we lost our trail while descending a glacier (on the return trip) but this data field got us back onto our “breadcrumb”. As this is only a data field, you cannot review it after saving the activity, nor can you upload a route to follow; If you want to do that, you need to buy a more expensive Garmin watch with mapping features!! (ie Fenix, etc). BUT consider the fact it creates a simple breadcrumb of your track on older, less powerful devices that were never intended to provide any mapping. Awesome!

A after I save my run can I see the 3D model and data? I keep forgetting to look before I save my runs.

Looks awesome, but would only be useful to me if it also projects a loaded route forward, rather than only tracking what has been.

Thanks for sharing, love this datafield.

This is a good app, there aren't many straight up bread crump trail apps and this one does it well with the elevation aspect too. Great if your forging your own trail.

It looks very nice. If there was an option to show this data field when i watch my saved trainings.

This has now been fixed. It was due to the new firmware and the requirement to request permission to obtain the current location. This is required to draw the trail.

Doesnt work on Fenix 5x. Only the compass shows up. Any idea?

Trail doesn't work on Forerunner 935. Just empty screen inside of compass. What a shame.

l'application est bien en direct pendant le footing mais pas possible de revoir le dénivelé une fois l'activité terminé et enregistré dommage.

February 19, 2018 | Version v1.01

Seems to work well. I wish I could save the activity and bring up the breadcrumb trail later though. Also is there any purpose behind the 3D effect? I find it makes seeing the trail a little difficult and it doesn't seem to add any useful info.

Hi, is it possible to add some grid scale?

Awesome app. In practical terms, it shows you where you are, relative to where you have been, including height. Also very handy for objectively reviewing climbs. More importantly though, it looks cool. I just wish the data was available in the connect app for review afterwards. Colour coding for speed might be a cool enhancement idea. And maybe an app to review ride/run data retrospectively.

Awesome data field, I just wish you could remove the compass from around the outside

Works just fine on my Fenix 5X, amazing job done!

Wonderful, it works flawlessly on my VAHR, I use 2D view instead 3D and North up. Could you also add km scale, like in your "hike" app?

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
