Great app works great. Only the last couple of weeks it seems to have problems with good gps fix. It takes much longer to get a good fix. Sometimes up to five minutes. In the past it was much faster.

Which watch? If there's a GPS issue, you'll see it in native activities like "run" too. On some watches, you can check EPO/CPE as one of the last screens in "about", and you want to make sure that's "current"

Used the app yesterday for a hike in the mountains. Very happy with all the info delivered.The app was running all the time..

Very nice app! But what could make it perfect is possibility to enter the GPS point coordinates in order to use it as outdoor navigator to reach the targeted place! Please add it!

Used the app yesterday for a hike in the mountains. Very happy with all the info delivered on the fly. However, after I saved the activity, I found out that the last 6 km are lost, 19 km instead of 25. But the app was running all the time. What might be a problem here? (I have Forerunner 235)

Molto bella, ma non riesco a convertire le miglia con i km, si può fare? per il resto utile e funzionale.

Miles vs kms is determined by the "distance units" set on your device. It's under settings/system/units on most devices.

Love this app! I use it every time I go for a walk/hike. It would be great to have a heart rate alarm integrated. Thank you!

Love this app! For free it's fantastic, so I donated a cold drink! Keep up the good work.

Hi, I used your app today for the first time and am very impressed of all avalaible info. Maybe you can improve the app adding the lock screen function. I loose 45min of hiking because the app paused... It will be really nice if we can lock the buttons (like the default function from device) so we start the activity and lock the device, so nothing can happen. Device: forunner 230 Best regards J

This app is pretty much maxed out as far on memory on the devices it is built for, so I won't be adding new functionality.

Brilliant app-I use it when I walk the dog (rather than running) and it is great for that. Thanks.

This is an excellent hiking app! Used for the first time yesterday on my FR235 and was really impressed with all the information available on each screen and especially the waypoints. I really like that when you mark a waypoint on an out-and-back hike, the app will alert you as you get close to one of your waypoints. Well done. Highly recommended.

Great app. I use it on the FR235. Also great you can make waypoints! Maybe a tip: wouldn't it be nice to have a Waypoint 0 as the start of the hike?

There's a screen that shows distance and direction to start, and you get an alert when you are close to start as you do with a waypoint, so there's something very similar today. You can also mark a waypoint when you start.
