Simply Sun Time

Description

This data field shows the time until the next "sun event", i.e. sunrise or sunset. Alternatively you can set it to show the clock time of the event.</p><p></p><p>And now with backlight control!</p><p>The data field can be set to turn the backlight always on at sunset and off again at sunrise. If you wish you can choose to switch it on & off 10, 20 or 30 minutes before sunset & after sunrise to lengthen or shorten the time it's lit. Please be aware this could use your battery up very fast. I can't use it for long on my vívoactive® HR, for example. The default is backlight control disabled.</p>

What’s New

(Version 2.0.0.a)</p><p>Version 2.0.0</p><p>• Built with SDK 3.1.6 to include the latest devices.</p><p>• Backlight control (it's no longer simply sun time.) See the description above.</p><p>• More customisation of the font sizes. I'm still not convinced I've got it quite right, please contact me if you have any comments.</p><p>

Hello, I just downloaded this on my 735xt but have no idea how to get it to show up. Is it in an activity menu or a widget menu? Hoping to be able to use it soon!

Thanks for your review. Please see "Customizing the Data Screens" on page 16 of the (English) user manual for help. Basically you add any new data field to one of the visible data screens for your activity. If you need further assistance the "Contact Developer" link is a better way to ask for it. Don't forget to include your email address for a reply.

I used a GPSMap 62 for hiking and other outdoor activities for many years and I loved the countdown to sunset information on the trip computer page because it would enable me to easily calculate when I needed to turn-around on my hike so I could finish before dark. I am now using a GPSMap 66 and sadly, this GPS does not have this functionality so Simply Sun Time is a godsend. I have been using it now for several months and it works flawlessly! Thank you for the great app!!
