Best app for Your watch!!! MUST HAVE! TOP1

Best app for this purpose! Desire for developments: To be able to be notified it the dog ends up outside or within a certain distance. A bug is that it sends sounds from emails to the watch even if you have turned off all sounds in the watch and the app. This only happens when the app is running.

Great to hear it's working well for you. I don't quite understand the request though. Feel free to contact me through "Contact Developer".

Very nice visualization, and can see myself and one or two dogs and the corresponding tracks. However, the app locks, or exits on the watch, and need to start a new track, or sometimes need to restart watch, and start new track. I had this issue with my Fenix 7X Solar, and my friend har the same issue with his Fenix 6X. If this issue was fixed, it is a clear 5 star app.

Sorry to hear about your issues. To be honest, I haven't done much with the app over the last year because of issues Garmin has had with the detailed map page. Their support has been lackluster on that front. I'd actually disabled it altogether for a while on the F6. I'll do some playing with it, but I suspect that's the page that is giving you all the problems. And if it's like last time I looked, there isn't much I can do about it on my end. I've been pushing the boundaries of what they intended. For now, I'd recommend disabling that page and see if it solves all the crashing problems. The device itself crashing, rather than just the app exiting is guaranteed a Garmin issue as CIQ shouldn't be able to do that. To disable the detailed map page (you'll still get the bread crumb map page) Menu - Display Options - Map+. Set that to off.

Hello! Good app! I have a question, can i buy map from and import it and then use it in the background in your app? Kind regards Henrik

I'm not familiar with those maps. Dog Tracker Plus just uses the same maps as set by the system map page.

Ivan, you still need a Garmin dog tracking device. This app just acts as a remote display as well as adding a few other features. It should work with any of their dog trackers including the Alpha and Astro lines.

Hi, I cant see my dogs track on my fenix 6x, I can see my own track and where the dogs are but no track. I use a alpha 100 and fenix 6x.

Marcus, sorry you're having this issue. Can you see them on the breadcrumb map? If you have multiple dogs, you'll only be able to see a single one on the detailed map. This is a limitation with CIQ. Do you have more than one dog paired to the A100?

March 2, 2021 | Version 2.15

hi i have a problem i can't see the dog names on the dog list screen. what solution do you have?

June 4, 2020 | Version 2.14

Good evening, is there the possibility to set the Italian language? Thank you. Francesco

Developer Reply

Unfortunately no. As an individual developer who does this as a hobby (no money) I don't have the resources to adapt it to other languages.

Hi, grate app but is it possible to set the map to always show North upwards?

Developer Reply
March 22, 2020, ekutter

Yes, and no. It will use the setting from the last native app (like Run, Bike) that you start. Garmin has provided no way for CIQ apps to configure this and I have complained about numerous times. I agree with you that N up is a much better experience since you want your location centered in the screen. That is why the bread crumb map is always in that mode, which I have full control over.

This app is incredible. A quick glance tells me where the dogs are and the watch vibrates when they go on point. The developer is very responsive. I have used it for a few seasons. Incredible.

Worked great the first month, then suddenly the arrow page that shows where the doggo's direction showed completly the wrong direction. The map page works great tho, even if its a bit annoying that the map disappear when it refreshes. would have been a 5 star if the arrow page worked as it should.

Developer Reply

Sorry to hear you've been having some issues. You don't mention which device you are using. The map flashing was an issue with the Garmin FW and should be fixed in most of the latest devices with the recent fw updates. The arrow is most likely an issue with the device itself and would somewhat depend on if it has a magnetic compass. The app can only be as accurate as the heading it is getting from the device. The app has no control over how accurate the device is at computing the current heading.

Works great paired fast and everything came up right away! Can you change the color of tracks for each dog currently running 3 and all 3 lines are red. Is there a way to change them?

Lars Eirik Sivesind

I haven't tested it more than one session, but looks very promising!
