l like it very much. Thank you for the share.
The start point is in fact the starting point of your 2d lap. Which is fine, as you can warm up before really going for your lapses.
One thing I'd like, is the ability to reset the counter and start position each time I press the lap button : I did 3 × 8' LT today, with 3' rest between each. When I had to go back to work, I was not necessarily at the starting line. Don't know if it's doable though.

Although during my tests I was always passing the GPS start point within a circle of a radius of 2m both with 4.0 and the previous version of LbP, in spite of the failure of the latter, the new version worked during each of my test independently from my moving speed (walk or run).

The older versions worked for me on my Fenix 3. I mean, back in 2018-2019. I swapped to Fenix 5 plus in January, but I used this datafield only last week for the first time with F5+.
Visually it seems to work, no collapse and that sort of things, but it never and never detects any autolap when I pass the start position. If I push lap button manually, it works, lap is counted etc.
I made exhaustive tests even checking the map on my F5+ with a zoom of 5m, and even if after a walk of 100 m I am again spot on the green start mark, nothing happens.
Before asking me why I had not contacted the developer first instead of giving a bad review, I disclose I had done it. Actually it was 5 days ago.

Sorry you are having an issue, I made an update (v4.0) that will make the detection ring larger and the before the lap point is set the GPS has to be at the highest level,
Please consider revising your review,

Cuando vea los resultados en la app en el tlf, podré ver el tiempo por cada vuelta? Y la velocidad?

Works great for me. Thanks. I tried it on a standard 400m oval using a Forerunner945 device and everything worked as expected/described.

For. 945: Tried twice, first time (running) it marked the lap something like 100m in advance the initial point (but then it was consistent), 2nd time I used with the bike and no way to have a lap marked..

New to Garmin and bought a Forerunner 235. It seems like a great product and was excited to use this data field. But after uploading , setting up the single field layout screen, and taking a few laps around the block on my mountain bike to test, it would not trigger a lap after passing the starting point. I tried it a few times. What am I doing wrong? Any help is appreciated!

HI, downloaded this app a few days back, to help count laps while self-isolated and having to run laps of the garden. Initially worked fine, but now the lapping point keeps shifting during the run.
my route is a lollypop, so start at the bottom of the stick, run up (the drive), then clockwise round the back garden and back down the drive to the starting point. As I understand it, the lap counter should increment at the point where the run started ie the bottom of the drive, but the last few runs it has been incrementing at the 9 o'clock position of the loop. Occasionally it would then jump to lapping at 5 0'clock position of the loop. Very strange!
I have tried uninstalling the data field, restarting the watch, and reinstalling, but doesn't make any difference. Can you offer and advice on why this might be happening, and how to fix it?

Works well but what app will write the laps into the main file?
September 21, 2019 | Version 3.8
good for riding and biking.
June 10, 2019 | Version 3.8
Hi, is this good for 25 meter pool size?
June 11, 2019, f3b
Thanks for reviewing, but I'm not sure. It is really intended for running, biking and motor (i.e. on land) with loops that are larger than 200 meters. It will likely be ok in open water swim when the laps(loops) are larger.
May 29, 2019 | Version 3.7
Love the field on my 935. Any plan to support the 945?
May 29, 2019, f3b
Thanks for reviewing! Yes, the Datafield now supports the FR945/245 and the Edge 530/830.
May 1, 2019 | Version 3.7
Wouldn't lap with my vivoactive unfortunately.
May 29, 2019, f3b
Thanks for reviewing, as long as you pass where you started at the app will lap.

Hello, crashes every time with, fenix5 and fenix5plus.
Crashes when we get the GPS lock.
Am I alone ?

Lecteux, contact me directly for an issue of this nature, i will correct. Try, please uninstall, restart the watch and reinstall. Also, Please remove this review.

I really amazing, i would like if the lapbyposition can save the the laps in my activity
January 25, 2019, f3b
thanks for the review. Sorry datafields do not have that ability, but I have other apps that do write the laps.
February 4, 2018 | Version 3.4-upd1
This 40m rule to continue after lap is not very usufull. I like to have information on every lap, also the one I like to take break. If the lap is allowed to skii on one direction this is too hard to use.
April 3, 2018, f3b
This app is really intended for "loop" activities
June 22, 2017 | Version 3.3
Very usefull when running in track.
- Remove "Last Lap Distance". when using this data filed I run on a track so I know exactly how long is each lap.
- Total time and Average Lap time would be more usefull information.
April 3, 2018, f3b
thanks for the review, check out my Run+ or MotorSports+. Both use the AutoLap by Position for there activity types, which save the lap information to the activity.
June 3, 2017 | Version 3.3
Sehr gut , endlich ist es da , Lap by Position für die vivoaktiv HR .
June 7, 2017, f3b
Thanks for the review!
February 6, 2017 | Version 3.0-upd
Cubre una carencia de los GARMIN modernos.
Debería avisar con un pitido ,y una vibración, que se ha completado la vuelta, y mostrar una ventana emergente con el tiempo que se ha tardado en completarla.
February 7, 2017, f3b
Thanks for the review, I wish garmin would add the addLap() function to the SDK and this data field would be 100%. As of now, it is prohibited from adding laps to the FIT file. :(
September 20, 2016 | Version 2.2-e82
App do not store lap info in .fit file so Garmin connect do not see laps. Make app with more cycling fields like cadence, speed, avg speed, hr ... Etc
December 20, 2016, f3b
This is really only for time and speed/pace. The addLap() ability is not available to datafields and that is why i cannot code in the Lap information to the FIT file.
July 31, 2016 | Version 2.2-e81
Bonne application, il serait intéressant d'avoir la vitesse et le rythme cardiaque en plus.
De même il serait très bien que le départ des tours se lance lorsqu'on appuie sur le bouton lap et non au lancement du GPS.
April 28, 2016 | Version 2.0-upd
Happy with this data field , functionable for my loops running and
suggest to add HR field ; HR rate , HR zone
