Put the data field on a separate screen that you can put in your set of displays to use during the activity.</p><p></p><p>To configure, enable a new screen/layout with only one data field.

Good apps but it's still much too small for me, even in "large" ; I can't read it while driving ; I would need at least twice as tall as "large". But thanks for the job

Since the new update it not possible to add spaces and carriage return anymore. It's now useless...

Marche très bien sur Edge 1000. Serait il possible de mettre plutôt dans le champs chrono et distance un compte à rebours et la distance restante pour les lignes d'informations.

Superbe application...quand elle marche!!! Pourquoi ne pouvons plus rien écrire à l'intérieur si ce n'est en passant par l'application mobile de Garmin (donc par un téléphone) ce qui, un, n'est vraiment pas pratique et deux, fait crasher l'application dès qu'on dépasse 3 lignes (alors qu'on pouvait en mettre le triple jusqu'à la semaine dernière). Après plusieurs installations/désinstallations, le problème est toujours présent. Une solution svp?? Merci

Didn't work for my 520, after changing the txt file my Garmin keeps crashing or freezing in some gps update... Can't delete the app either.

On E520 data are datafields in collision with each other, please make them smaller. First raw is too close to datafields. But very helpfull at all

August 16, 2016 | Version 1.42-e81

Works. Great data field. To display changes in text via Garmin Connect App on Android everytime you want to change note text, you have to change size of text to make new text apear: 1. Make sure your phone is connected via Bluetooth 2. Change note text 3. Press Done 4. Change text size 5. Press Done. 6. New text will appear instantly, on the fly (then you can change text size as you want).

It works! After installing it on your Edge 1000, do: Homscreen Wrench Activity profile - chose one Data screens Select one which is not used yet Enable it (upper right) Set number of datafields to 1 - check Chose from Connect-IQ the desired field "Race notes" - check Finished!

Can't display

May 31, 2016 | Version 1.4

Unstable, cannot program without crashes. (Latest software on all devices) Not good, needs improvement as has potential.

May 29, 2016 | Version 1.4

Worked once. No longer updates text. Can't uninstall from phone.

Text does not appear via garmin connect on Android (garmin 520)

May 6, 2016 | Version 1.33

Thanks again for the fast update. Works great now on Garmin Edge 1000, 16 lines is enough! I don't need to read an e-book cycling ;-)
