Funktioniert recht gut. Leider kein Pfeil beim verlassen der Route um diese wieder zu finden. Mir fehlt in der Routenplanung eine Anzeige von Streckenlänge und Höhenprofil. Sonst aber prima.

In der Navigationsansicht wird ein kleiner blauer Pfeil angezeigt, der die Abweichung der aktuellen Position von der geplanten Tour anzeigt. Unter der Kartenansicht wird ein Höhenprofil mit Streckenlänge angezeigt, einfach nach unten scrollen.

Looks like everything I need. Question : why does the GPS at the top have a red x through it?

A crossed GPS symbol is an indicator that there is no GPS fix available to determine the location. You may have to wait a little bit.

Your apps are the best ones I have seen so far for the vivoactive 3. You can choose up to 7 pages with 3 to 7 data fields, it shows a realtime elevation graph on the watch, a breadcrumb line of run and you can even follow a gpx-route! Really great!

Prima App, funktioniert einwandfrei auf meiner Fenix 5. Vielen Dank an die Entwickler. Spende ist per paypal unterwegs. Wünsche mir die Ansicht der Seiten mit schwarzem Hintergrund und weißer Schrift.

It would be perfect hike app if more several zoom levels will be available in the map screen.

Due to memory restrictions of the watches there are very few possibilities for additional features. Therefore you have only one zoom level on the vivoactive HR/3.

Fenix 5s. The application works perfectly. Could you do the same apps, but for electric unicycle based on the profile Other. Thank you.

December 16, 2017 | Version 1.20-upd

Thank you. Cool app. For some reason, after recording a walk in the application, distance and speed are not displayed, and during the training, gps accurately determined everything. Device VA3. Tried and with the route and without.

Fantastic App. Have tried various hiking apps, and this is my "go to" app. Very customizable. Reliable. Stable. More data fields than I could ever use.

Looks like a great app!! There is just one problem. I Installed the app on the watch, created a route on the site en connected both with the code on the watch. However immediately after downloading the route on the watch the screen jumps to ' IQ! ' and doesn't show the map. Do you know why? Thanks for your help!

In some situations it could happen that the weppage generated data which are not compatible with the app and therefore the app crashed. This error is already corrected on the webpage. Please create the route again on the webpage.

This looks like a great app and I want to use it, however on my new vivoactive 3, I can't get it to back out of the app or shut it down once launched on the device. It shows it is supposed to be compatible with my watch, but renders my watch useless or locked up or something. I had to shutdown watch to get out of the app. Please advise and I will update my review if we can get it working.

On the vivoactive 3 you have only ohne hardware button. The second button was replaced by Garmin with a „swipe right“ gesture. Please use this to stop the app.

Nearly perfect. Just missing using the build in maps of the Fenix 5x. Wouldn't there be a way to get both?

Habe die App auf die Uhr geladen und im Internet eine neue Route erstellt. Wie bekomme ich jetzt die Route auf meine Uhr? Danke für die Hilfe! LG David

Die Uhr muss mit einem Smartphone (Android oder iPhone) gekoppelt sein auf dem die Garmin Connect App installiert ist und läuft. Dann auf den Button drücken der als Download Button in der App angezeigt wird.

Incredibly useful app. very useful for following a map, and also for the huge amount of stats tracked.

July 1, 2017 | Version 1.03

Super App!!! Genau das hab ich gebraucht, bitte weiter so...

Now, with the latest changes, it's just complete. Thank you !

Super, ich bin begeistert! Schade, dass Garmin so etwas nicht gleich mitliefert. Tolle App! Das ist genau, was ich mir gewünscht habe. DANKE

A great application that, in addition to store current track, allows you to load a route on a map and also have available a navigator and a compass. In navigator mode it indicates all route variations, in map mode both the original route and the current track are visible. A tap on the screen activates a very useful zoom. Various configurable data pages allow you to take a look at a large amount of data. Congratulations to the developer!

Worka well, great app!
