December 8, 2017 | Version 0.773 public beta

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

November 29, 2017 | Version 0.773 public beta

The only datafield you need, great work!!

November 25, 2017 | Version 0.773 public beta

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!

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!

November 5, 2017 | Version 0.74 public beta-upd

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

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!

October 20, 2017 | Version 0.73 public beta

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.

October 16, 2017 | Version 0.73 public beta

Very very good DF. This is absolutely what I wanted. And with this DF, I use only one screen that includes everything during ride. I also follow the topic in forum. I have few suggestions about graphics and custom calculation with variables (like app builder DF). I will mention about these on forum. Excellent job. Nice work.

October 13, 2017 | Version 0.73 public beta

Excellent. I've been using Runner HUD since more than a year now and very fond of it. But to be able to configure literally everything yourself is something else, a new dimension for the user. Congrats and thanks a lot.

September 25, 2017 | Version 0.72 public beta

Thanks for the new version 072 which saves the definition string for all 3 DIY-versions A, B and C. For one of the next steps I'm looking forward to get DIY for the new Edge 1030. I love that app!!

September 18, 2017 | Version 0.71 public beta

Simply amazing ! I've been desperatly looking for an app with the exact set of data I wanted and could never find it. Now I have it and so much more !

September 13, 2017 | Version 0.70 public beta

Es ist etwas Arbeit sich hiermit das optimale Display zu gestalten. Die Möglichkeiten sind unbegrenzt und für mich war es den Aufwand wert.

September 3, 2017 | Version 0.68.1 public beta

Today I created my first datafield for my Edge1000. It works like a charme! Many thanks to the developer(s).

August 28, 2017 | Version 0.68.1 public beta

This is a great app and I have been playing with it quite a bit. I appreciate it very much that I can a have a data field for running and one for biking now. However, I want to use the DIRECTION ARROW also for datafieldB and I am unable to find that feature anymore... What happened?

August 27, 2017 | Version 0.68.1 public beta

Fantastic App - fully customizable - use it for my fenix 5 and my roadbike. Works like a charm - only the slope is not properly working. For me the only screen I use for training - power, speed, altitude, ascent, elapsed time, elapsed km, battery, avg speed, cadence and - not fully working - slope%.

August 21, 2017 | Version 0.68.1 public beta

Great app ! Is there a place where we can find all the cool designs for different sports ?

August 18, 2017 | Version 0.68.1 public beta

Einfach genial !!!! Vielen Dank dafür !!!! Just awesome !!!! Thanks a lot for this !!!!

August 10, 2017 | Version 0.65 public beta

So appreciate for such nice App. (1) Can please check "Gradient" data value. It show wrong value on Edge820. (2) Can please add "Current Temperature" on it? Thanks!

Muy buena atención por parte del desarrollador

First of all, I was unable to import your layout, make sure you see version number in upper left corner of the device image in designer app and it matches the data field version on Garmin market, clear the browser cache if you do not see it or value is different. For Edge 820 latest designer version provides up to 8 definition lines which must be copy/pasted line by line into relevant settings fields in Garmin Express/Mobile. As I do not have an Edge device I cannot test it live, but in development environment device simulator strings 4-8 are displayed between milestones and power zones definition, seems that I cannot control that, therefore make sure that you paste definition parts into related settings counterparts.

August 5, 2017 | Version 0.63 public beta

For me the best data field in the store, because it's completely customizable. It's a little more work to create a data field, but the after that it works perfect.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
