Good application, thank you! Is it possible to add simple switch for countdown minutes (i have fenix 5)? For example if i miss 3 minutes - i just press down and countdown changes to 2 minutes (same from 2 to 1). Then it would be good tree the best app :)

Have used this all several years now and continue to love it. With my vivo3 I just start and then lock the screen. At a race I sync one time en then lock the screen. Love it!

Can’t find how to change screens on vivoactive 3? How to check current speed and then get back to general one? Thanks

This is a great sailing start line app! I’ve tried quite a few and this is the best I’ve found. Big thanks! I owe you a beer : )

Just updated. Let us know if it is working as I only have a Fenix 3 to test on.

I really like your app. One question: on the start line setting, which side Mark-1 refer to? Starboard end or port end? One suggestion: Can you add on the settings enable/disable data recording? Usually in a sailing race we do not need to save any data.

Excellent app. Worked great on Vivoactive 3. Couldn't be happier with it.

Countdown minutes only increase to the original time, no reduction button

Used this app few time over weekend and generally like it. One think I would like is the ability to have the timer finish counting down and then start counting up for a race duration. If its there please explain what I need to turn on or off for this to work - its the one big feature I miss from my Casio Sea Pathfinder. Also as I am new to the Fenix watch when the timer is running does this initiate the GPS and plot path taken - I have no idea how this ended up in my activity monitor!

I think I found solution for your app which putting my fenix 3 in IQ. First I start any base app, wait for green gps signal, when go out and and start your app. In 95% it works.

Très bonne application pour forerunner 645, simple, efficace, complète sauf l'avancement ou le retour du décompte du départ en même temps. Good job

Cheers for the review. Set countdown to "Rolling" - pressing UP button during countdown will disable/toggle rolling - the red dot at 9oclock will toggle also. It can also be turne off in the app settings on the watch. Click the "more" link on the App page for instructions. https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/7b888120-1ce0-42f5-98e1-d788a462dd37#0

I've used this for a week or so and loved it but now it just displays the IQ symbol. The only way i can get the app to work is to uninstall it and reload the app. This cures the problem briefly and then it crashes again. Help

This is the best app for Windsurfing. It is very comfortable to see the best speed on the tack and speed of jibe! Please make the synchronization of the racing timer only down. If I'm late and did not manage to turn on the timer for 5 minutes, then at 4 minutes, when I can synchronize, sometimes the timer turns on for 5 minutes, instead of 4 minutes. During races rounding "up" is not necessary, you need to round to the "bottom" minute.

Cheers for the feedback. There is a setting on the garmin phone app to change the sync. Open the Connect phone app and go to Devices/YOUR DEVICE/Activities & App Management/Activities & Apps/Race Countfown/Settings/Sync Closest - toggle off.

I like the app. I just bought a vivoactive 3 and haven't figured out how to sync during the countdown.

Tap the lower 1/4 of the screen. - For Vívoactive/Vívoactive HR 3/Forerunner630 Tap the upper 1/4 of the screen fo UP and the lower 1/4 of the screen for DOWN

On Vivoactive 3 I'm still not seeing or able to see the toggle between the screen that shows Knts and Compass and the one that is split 4 ways with the other data. I press the top of the screen, the bottom of the screen and try swiping to the sides or up/down. nothing... keeps taking me back to menu screen with start line and timer info. Please help.

Thanks for the review :-). Will try and get it working. Will be a few weeks before I get a chance to dig into it.

vivoactive 3 - would highly appreciate support for vivoactive. seems that a touch-solution for starting the app would be the key feature ...

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
