Looks so fine, but can not able to track more than 20km because the battery goes down so soon. Can not able to dim the lights either.( Garmin vivoactive 3)

According to the specification of Garmin the battery life is 13 hours in GPS mode, that should be enough for 20km. The vivoactive 3 has a MIP display where the power consumption is independant of the shown pixels.

Excellent app in all aspects except for battery consumption. There is no way to dim the screen, so it drained the battery before i was even halfway through my 5 mile day hike

Super pour petite balade (3,5 heures max). Avec toute les données affiché, la batterie ne tient pas plus que 4:00. Mais sinon super appli !!

Really good app, works really well. Only drawback, battery usage. On my Vivoactive 3 (standard, not Music) battery went down from 90 to 14% during a 4h00 hike. Should have options to turn off the display, dark mode or other options to save the battery. It would be a great add ! Otherwise, perfect !

Hallo, ich habe die App heute heruntergeladen und meine Fenix 5x mit deiner Website verbunden. Das Herunterladen einer gpx-Tour auf die Uhr klappte auf Anhieb. Eine sofort durchgeführte kleine Wanderung lieferte sehr schöne Ergebnisse und war zu meiner vollen Zufriedenheit. Vielen Dank.

I was very happy with this app but suddenly it doesn't seem possible to import a route. It keeps saying to restart the app because there isn't enough memory. Tried everything and it is still not possible to import a route :-(

In this case you have to uninstall the app and to install it again from this page.

Very good app, if I have a suggestion, it would be good to modify the light green color of the altitude graph because it is not very visible on a white background and also to add the creation of Waypoints.

A very good app for hiking. Works like a charm and directions for planned hikes are helpful and very precise. But I have one suggestion: There should be an option to change the activity type from "Hiking" to "Walking" because activities for (weekly/monthly) "Garmin Challenges" are only counted if they are classified as "Walking". Even if there's the possibility to change it afterwards it would be easier to set it in advance. Sehr gute App zum Wandern. Funktioniert einwandfrei, Abbiegeinformationen für geplante Wanderungen sind hilfreich und sehr genau. Ich habe nur eine Anregung: Es sollte möglich sein, den Aktivitätstyp von "Wandern" auf "Gehen" zu ändern, weil die Aktivitäten für wöchentliche und monatliche Garmin Challenges nur dann gewertet werden, wenn der Typ "Gehen" ist. Man kann es zwar im Nachhinein in der Android-App oder auf der Website ändern, es wäre aber einfacher, das von vornherein einstellen zu können.

Good overall, but have had an issue with GPS drift. When stopping, the app will auto-pause, as expected. However, I've noticed that even while paused (moving time is stopped, the outer ring of the app is yellow/orange) my distance will very slowly go up one one-hundredth of a mile at time. If I'm pausing to rest or wait for a friend for 10 minutes, it may add more than a tenth of a mile. I realize this is a small gripe, but can mean a difference of a mile or more of "added" mileage over a long hiking day. I appreciate the auto-pause feature but given that it seems to add mileage when using this feature as opposed to stopping and starting myself, but end up having to manually stop/start in order to avoid GPS drift during auto pauses.

An automatic pause is displayed if there is no significant movement. This is usually an actual pause but you cannot be quite sure. If you have a little movement you cannot decide whether these are GPS inaccuracies during a break or a real movement, for example when hiking in a difficult or steep place. Therefore, with a real break and poor GPS reception (e.g. under trees) a manual break is necessary.

Fantastic hiking app. Easy to customize all the data points I need in the place I need them. I tested the step-by-step for tracker against a couple known trails, was very accurate. Thanks for the great app!

Приложение удобное. Но батарейку высаживает очень быстро. На часах vivoactive 3. Хватает на 4 часа похода. Это очень мало :(

Ho notato che l'altimetro non è corretto. Come è possibile tarare l'altimetro? È possibile salvare senza chiudere il percorso inserendo in pausa limitando il consumo della batteria?

Ho usato l'applicazione per 10 giorni su VivoActive3 durante le vacanze.. Su 10 escursioni registrate per ben 6 volte l'applicazione si è chiusa automaticamente quando ero quasi alla fine, perdendo tutti i dati registrati, quindi non ho avuto la possibilità di scaricare le escursioni su GarminConnect. Mi sembra che quando si fanno escursioni lunghe oltre 15km oppure oltre le 4h, l'applicazione abbia seri problemi.

Habe die App im Wanderurlaub ausprobiert und bin sehr zufrieden. Akku hält lange durch. Aufzeichnung klappt sehr gut. Danke an die Entwickler.

Eigentlich schöne App aber diese Autopause nervt. Wieso kann man das nicht abstellen?

Die App speichert die Wanderung automatisch, das heißt dass die Wanderung praktisch unterbrochen wird. Der Entwickler antwortet nicht.

Function wise is good but stops randomly and tells me I am not registered. HR also stops tracking for no apparent reason.

It is a good app but I think the map area could be improved if maybe you had it so the trail always faces to the top of the watch face (if you know what I mean) and the arrow rotates according to where you are looking. Maybe also black lines to signify roads as well? Otherwise a good app.

Im Ansatz ganz gut. Die großen Navigationpfeile gefallen mit besonders. Anders wiederum sind viele Detail extrem winzig und absolut unleserlich (also überflüssig). NoGo 1: Die APP startet ohne zu fragen automatisch, wenn Sie GPS gefunden hat nicht wenn ich auf Start drücke! NoGo 2: und letztend Endes Grund für Deinstallation ist die völlig andere Tastenbelegung für Stop, Benden & Speichern. Ständig verdrückt man sich. Wer kommt auf so eine ... Idee?!

Die App bietet alle Möglichen fürs Wandern und bleibt durch maximale Konfigurierbarkeit sehr übersichtlich. Die App nichts für schlechte Akkus! Großes Lob an den Entwickler.

I have tried to make this app star up so I can get the watch code, to sign in ,but everytime I try the app will highlight on the list of apps, but never opens or does anything else. I emailed for help and haven't heard back. I have tried to search for online help but found nothing.
