Eine sehr gelungene App. Funktioniert tadellos. Vielen Dank an den Entwickler.

Most fields are unresponseives. ie : HR, crossroad, etc never refresh except on pause. Unusable on Venu.

Klasse App, einfach zu Bedienen und funktioniert tadellos. Speziell die Kreuzungskarten für die Venu sind top. Und das alles kostenlos....mega.

Super slow and laggy

Unkompliziert, schnell, top! Für mich die beste App um Routen zu erstellen oder vorhandene GPX hoch zuladen. Ich bin begeistert!

Großartige App. Läuft wunderbar stabil, akzeptabler Akkuverbrauch. Insbesondere die Kreuzungskarten sind hervorragend beim begehen neuer Routen. Schön wäre noch die Möglichkeit das Farbschema zu invertieren um die Ablesbarkeit zu erhöhen (weißer Hintergrund und schwarze Schrift).

Super App. Ich nutze sie um Radtouren zu navigieren. Der Bildschirm sollte hierfür dauerhaft an sein. Allerdings verstehe ich noch nicht so ganz wie ich die Anzeige interpretieren soll wenn ich die Route verlassen habe. Top App

After 6 hours of walking, the app used up the entire charge on the watch. VA4

The functions of this app are terrific. Had difficulties with the previous version, but the developer got it sorted out and it's been great since.

This hiking+ app is excellent. I've been using this on several hikes lately, and i'm quite impressed. I think it's the best and most configurable out there, and I'm certainly planning to donate, since this developer has put a lot of thought and code into it. I have tried other, similar apps for my Venu, and they have been crash-prone, or not provided the functionality that i am seeking. This BF Outdoor Map app nails it. PROS: it's highly configurable and has tons of screen options... There is detailed doc about it, and it's stable... There is even a free, secured service where you can upload a GPX track to follow on your watch. I would like to know more about how to manage battery life to suit my needs. Sometimes, I'd like a lot of detail, and yet there are times when I'm doing 20hr summit push and i don't want to stop and recharge watch.

Very good app, close to perfection. Since feedback is always usefull and everytime there is space to improvement: /First map screen is showing track from start to current position. Not sure what is the point of that but I find it to be totaly useless. I'm not interested of where I have been before, I am interested of where I am and what is in front of me. /Second map screen with 0.5 km grid is perfect, it is a shame that every time the next turn warning occurs, map goes back to first screen. /Would it be possible to make those next turn notifications switchable? Most of the time the are more annoying than usefull so it would be great to have possibility to turn it off. /Instead of them it would be perfect to raise some alert when I am off track /Would it be possible to add value of estimated time at destination? Average speed is there, distance to destination is there, so it is then only simple mathematic. /It would be fantastic to have ability to switch to standard watch face to be able to control music for example or maybe at least pause activity, quit app and then have possibility to return. / In any case thank you for this app, it is really good and if it would be possible to implement something from this suggestions sooner or later, it would be great

Thank you for your feedback. (1) Due to system limitations it is not possibile to add any additional configuration switches. (2) The estimated time at arrival from current distance and average speed is useless, it is precise as the remaining time in file copy dialog from Microsoft. (3) To access the music player long press on the upper key (see manual)

Grundsätzlich tolle app hat sich aber gestern in einer 6 stunden wanderung zwei mal nach ca. 2h von selbst geschlossen, gehängt und die davor aufgezeichnete Wegstrecke nicht gespeichert. Danach ließ sich die app ohne neustart der uhr nicht mehr öffnen. Wenn aufgezeichnete daten verloren gehen is das für mich im grunde der supergau...

Dies ist leider ein Fehler in der aktuellen Firmware der Garmin Uhr. Bitte daher Beschwerde an Garmin richten und dort eine negative Bewertung hinterlassen. Die App hat damit nichts zu tun.

Tolle App die genau macht was sie soll. Das war eins der Features die mir noch gefehlt haben. Danke. Excellent Job. Gruß nach Freiburg
