February 7, 2018 | Version 1.4.1-upd2

As a person with epilepsy I love this app. I can't give it 5 stars yet because it is a little restrictive. I found that a few of the fields cut off some of the important text areas where I wish they scrolled like the "other info" field. Maybe as a note to the developer add an option for the user to designate the field as a scrolling field. I understand for the app's sake that these must be limited so maybe give x amount to put in there so the overall field stays compact. Thank you for giving me that much more peace of mind when I go out though!!! I do wear my medical dogtag but now I have days where I feel comfy leaving it hanging on my bathroom mirror because that same info is right on my wrist.

Thanks for your feedback! I'd like to look into this case. The fields are designed to fit international telephone numbers, but for a specific use case or device, it may not fit. Can you share the info you use, and the device type? You can use the Contact Developer link on the App Info tab.

Very good

January 25, 2018 | Version 1.4.1-upd

How do you enter data ?

Developer Reply
January 28, 2018, HarryOnline

As described in the App Info tab, in the settings from the Connect Mobile app, Garmin Express or using the menu button on the watch.

December 23, 2017 | Version 1.4.1-upd

Got all my information entered just fine. Great idea to have just in case.

December 5, 2017 | Version 1.4.1-upd

This is a very useful, simple app for holding & displaying emergency information (or any other short bits of info). It would get 5 stars if the way of entering the data on Garmin Express was simpler. Surely Heading 1 : Data 1, Heading 2 : Data 2 etc would be more intuitive than entering all the data fields and then rewording the headings?

Developer Reply
December 5, 2017, HarryOnline

Good point. The reason, of course, is that rewording the labels was only built in later, but it makes good sense to use more generic words. In the next version.

Hi great widget but is there a way of adding more than 1 emergency contact... thx

Developer Reply

The space on the screen is limited, but you could use any of the other fields (e.g., Date of Birth, Phone) for another Emergency contact. In the settings, you can not only change the information, but also the labels, so you can customise it as you want.

Works well on my FR235. Would it be an idea to call the headings Line 1-5 instead of Phone Emergency etc. ? That would keep it nicely flexible. For example I always switch phone and emergency because the mobile number is too long to display.

Developer Reply

If you scroll down in the settings, you can change the headings yourself.

Useful (also for/as "Owner Contact Info" if unit is lost). I even use the field labels for info (content is usually pretty obvious so the labels are not fully necessary). Suggestion: add one extra page (swipe down..?) with one free form text field.

Developer Reply
November 7, 2017, HarryOnline

Good suggestion, will look into what is possible. Not every watch can swipe, and swiping is also used to switch between widgets, but worth exploring.

October 10, 2017 | Version 1.4.0

Here's something useful! Works perfectly on my Fenix 5X!

Does not display on the Edge 820 device... it'll be listed in Garmin Connect along with any other apps/widgets you've downloaded, and you'll be able to go into the app settings from Connect to update your own info, but alas, it doesn't display on the device. Even if it did, there's no obvious "Emergency crew look here" type of button in the Edge 820 that would tell first responders they can get vital medical info and contact numbers for the injured.

You are right that Garmin has made it very hard to find a widget on the Edge devices, that's a problem for all widgets. You can access widgets from the home screen, swipe down (this shows some settings menu), then swipe left or right to see the installed widgets. Emergency Info should be one of them, if you have more widgets installed, you may have to swipe a few times left or right.

Great. List my allergies and emergency contact. Thanks

Hi, Great app. However on Fenix 5 beta firmware 4.14 the watch crashes on your app.

Developer Reply
July 13, 2017, HarryOnline

Sorry for the late reply, I do not get a notification when a new review appears. In case of any issue, better contact me using the Contact Developer link. I could not reproduce the crash, as I don't have a Fenix 5 and it works on all devices I can test. Can you send me the file GARMIN/APPS/LOG/CIQ_LOG.TXT on the device?

Worked really well for a little while & then after connecting to my computer, all my data went blank. Even updating it and saving it in Garmin Express each time does not work.

May 9, 2017 | Version 1.3.5

Worked really nice but now it doesn't display any info on fénix 3

Developer Reply
May 12, 2017, HarryOnline

Nothing has changed on the app recently, perhaps has to do with a firmware update on fénix 3? In any case, entering the information again should fix it. If not, or in case of any issues, please contact the developer.

Works like a charm on my 920XT, thank you for the widget!

Very handy widget for storing next of kin emergency contact phone numbers in. Really great too as I can never remember her mobile number and a couple of up clicks and there it is. Great layout. Thanks Harry. I wonder if you'd consider making a very similar widget to store a list of words in - a pre-run checklist - as I've a dozen things to remember but usually forget one of them. Be fantastic & very much appreciated if you could (:o)

April 14, 2017 | Version 1.3.3

up to v.1.3.3 worked well with Epix, but after the update it does not work (data not loaded/shown) is it not compatibile with Epix anymore? :(

Developer Reply
April 20, 2017, HarryOnline

This issue has been fixed in v.1.3.4.

Letters are too big on Fenix 5x. Not possible to read whole name or phone number!

Developer Reply
April 12, 2017, HarryOnline

Yes, this is a known issue, as mentioned in the description. Unfortunately, the Fenix 5x does not have a smaller font size, so it would require a custom font--hence more time.

April 10, 2017 | Version 1.3.1

Works on fenix 3HR and I added Blood group on the last info. Tried to reboot and start the watch not connected on the phone and the info are still there, all what we need. It's really a great idea for an outdoor watch. Thank you

January 18, 2017 | Version 1.3.0-upd

Does not show my data on my Viveoactive HR. I go to the settings screen and input all my information and then sync my VAHR again. Nothing still shows up on the screen of my watch. Love the idea but can't seem to get it to work. Be happy to change my rating to 5 stars if can get the app to work!

Please note that developers do not get a notification of new reviews, so unless I happen to check this page (which I do occasionally, but not daily), I may not see it for a while. I'd be happy to provide support if it does not work as expected, but use the link in the App info or the Contact Developer link, so I get a notification and can get in touch with you.
