Impressive app but i would like to use "last lap time" to could create a reverse counter field with "Time limit". Thanks!

Amazing datafield!!!! Could you add Predicted (Estimated) Time for each distance, to use on Forerunner 235 ??? This is the only thing that remains to make my preferred datafield perfect!! Best regards

Just what I was looking for ! Thank you !

Brutal... increíble aplicación Es tan buena que no me vale con una única pantalla de datos. Sería genial poder tener, varias versiones de esta pantalla de datos a la vez

I've done some designs but still I'm to dumd to do a graph for current speed. What values do I have to enter for a speed from 32km/h to 46km/h. i didn't find anything worthy in the forum...

There must be an issue with this version. In my Edge 820 the personalization doesn't work. I'm still seeeing the predefined look.

If application doent't crash but settings are not updated, then this may be related to market app ID changes, one of the Edge 1030 users reported me similar behaviour before. I recommend to do a complete installation cycle: uninstall, reboot, install, reboot, send settings. In any case, delivery of settings is Garmin Mobile/Express task and I can't do anything if something doesn't work in this department And, last but not least, it's much more effective to report problems via email, than leaving version or even device specific bad review in a common thread.

What a great piece of software! Love to play with it! Problem: I have vanishing lines/ items during editing - and they won't show up again in the graphic - still they are in the Display Elements list Improvement: I would love to have vertical lines to show variating value from bottom to top - not only left to right Question: how can I make a moveable arrow/ line to show the average of something within a bar?

Never encountered vanishing items, if you send me your definition I will try to analyze this problem. If you have modern device, then it's possible to use rectangles with variable height instead of vertical lines. Currently there's no option for arrow, but my plans include "pointer alike" element for arcs.

Simply the best data field in IQ history.

January 18, 2018 | Version 0.775 public beta

Great app ! One missing field for me : Estimated completion time for next milestone (only ETA available, my need is to have a field containing the result of ETA + elapsed time). Do you plan to release your work to Github ? (I just saw empty repo)

Developer Reply
January 19, 2018, easuvorov

I took note to plan ETA + elapsed time for some of the future updates. As for the Github repo - due to constant optimization required for the application to take less memory on device during runtime, my ConnectIQ code is spaghetti and I doubt you will find something useful even if I release it, although I will still post it there once I decide to drop support.

Works perfectly on the VA3. The online data field designer works great too and is easy to use. The only thing I miss is the "last lap time" datafield.

Posiblemente la mejor aplicaciones del store, he podido configurar mi garmin edge 1000 tal y como quería, pudiendo cambiar los diseños a mi gusto, lo único que echo en falta es la potencia normalizada By Lap. Sigo atentamente las nuevas actualizaciones, un gran trabajo.

January 12, 2018 | Version 0.775 public beta

The best app ever seen on Connect IQ. La meilleure application jamais vue sur Connect IQ. Thank you developer, you're great and your product is simply wonderful.

January 11, 2018 | Version 0.775 public beta

Le meilleur datafield du store, on peut le créer comme l'on veut, c'est de l'excellent travail. Juste un problème avec la vitesse verticale qui ne s'affiche pas. Merci beaucoup en tout cas.

Best data field I've found - this is the sort of thing that should be built in. Fantastic

Gracias, estoy disfrutando de su aplicación cada día que corro. Gracias a su esfuerzo e inteligencia puedo leer los valores de la carrera sin utilizar gafas. Saludos.

November 22, 2017 | Version 0.771 public beta

Thanks for this great tool. Could you please consider adding the following data options: Lap value such as lap time, lap distance, etc. Keep up the excellent work!

Developer Reply
November 22, 2017, easuvorov

This functionality is already available for modern devices (Lap Value option), but due to low memory on legacy watches such as Forerunner 230 or Fenix3 I'll need to remove something in favor of these values, I plan to do this in one of the application clones soon.

November 20, 2017 | Version 0.771 public beta

The best data display. Only missing the data field "steps"

November 19, 2017 | Version 0.752 public beta

Sencillamente genial. Una aplicación de 10 por ser totalmente configurable. El único pero que se veo es que no mide bien el ASCENSO TOTAL. Mide muy por encima de lo real. Me salen unos 100m+ de más de media en mis entrenos.

November 6, 2017 | Version 0.75 public beta

Thanks for ver075! Best IQ app ever!! You can do (nearly) all datafield designs you want!

I'm investigating this app. At first it look like very promising. Everyone can make ther own data field! One question. In design mode, how can I select other datafields like lap time, lap distance, lap cadence and so on? Regards Chris

Developer Reply
November 5, 2017, easuvorov

Why 3 stars if you liked the app especially considering that you cannot change this review? I consider this impolite. As for your question - there's a "Lap Value" option for those data values, not available for legacy devices yet due to low memory available per data field.

I've been using this app now for a while and sometimes I just wonder if Garmin has any idea how much value this "app thing" adds to the quality and overall rate of their products. This app is really unique in that sense, taking things to another level.

October 31, 2017 | Version 0.74 public beta

Everything i need - i can do it myself! Best data field possible!

Sensational! This is what I've been waiting for. It took me little while to figure it out, but it wasn't that bad. This allows you to do just about anything you want. Thanks so much for making this available.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
