September 29, 2019 | Version 3.1.0
While hiking the app informed me that simultaneously my walking pace was faster than three miles a minute while my speed was slower than three miles a minute. There was no information I could not get in ordinary data fields. I deleted it.

I’ve been using the RH-Sports Cycling, MTB, Hiking and Skiing apps on my Garmin watch for years. They are highly customizable and easy to use. I’m a big fan.
August 23, 2019 | Version 3.0.0
Hello, after 3h of hiking I wanted to save and exit, vivoactive 3 music bugged, the app stopped, the watch needed to reboot in order to have all the iQ apps working, so need some work, but good app
August 18, 2019 | Version 3.0.0
I used this app for the first time today. Strava said the hike was 3.31mi and this app reported 2.82 when it finally transferred to my phone. Who's right?
July 18, 2019 | Version 2.9.0
It's not easy to customize.
I installed it for the map. But it shows only a portion of your hike. Do it's entirely useless for a loop.

If you are in the map view you can press the start button to enter the Zoom view. There you can select out of several zoom options to see the whole map.

Burns up your battery like crazy. And every few minutes it zaps your wrist to remind you that you have the free version. It’s incredibly annoying. And it doesn’t do anything that the built in hiking app does. Not for me.

A good development costs several hundred hours of work. As clearly documented, the Free version reminds to upgrade regularly. The Pemium version is not doing that anymore and also offers power modes to save battery.

Thanks for the app! Bought the whole kit and very satisfied! Please: 1) Add HRV everywhere, 2) Implement everywhere choosing the type of occupation from the watch menu! 3) Remember the choice of the last selected type of occupation! Andrew! 4) Make a field for this application! With all respect, Andrew!

I like this very much. However, it seems to have changed some functioning on its own. I am using it on fenix 5 Sapphire, paid version, deleted and reinstalled today. The new behavior appeared maybe a week ago, and persists after my update of today. What I don't like is that I now have to press more buttons than I used to. Here's what happens when I want to do a hike
A) Starting the hike:
1. Press the start/stop button to show apps, with favorites first.
2. Hiking app is first item in my favorites so I press start/stop again. It quickly shows the premium screen and then shows the list of activities, with Hiking shown first.
3. I press start/stop again. It looks for GPS and then when ready (about 20-30 secs often) it shows the main screen with various fields.
4. I press start/stop again to start it. It pulls up a menu of items that has Start Session as first item, then below it, Navigation, then below it Exit App.
5. I press start/stop again to start the session and it starts!
But that was 5 presses to get at what was my first favorite, and when I already had hiking as my default activity. That seems like too much. And I think it used to be fewer presses. I'm pretty sure press #4 wasn't required before.
B) Stopping the hike:
1. Press start/stop. It brings up menus with Pause Session as first item, then Navigation below it, then Save and Exit below it.
2. Press down once.
3. Press down again to be at Save and Exit.
4. Press start/stop to save and exit. Now it shows the apps list with favorites first, and the Hiking app therefore first.
5. Press back to get to the watch again.
So that's 5 presses. I'm pretty sure I didn't used to need to do both steps 2 and 3, so there is at least 1 more press before.
Is there any way I can change settings so that I don't have so many presses?

Thank you very much for your feedback. I significantly improved that in the last released version.

Ich habe die App jetzt schon einige Urlaube im Einsatz und bin vollkommen zufrieden!
March 17, 2019 | Version 2.4.0
Very good app, I've bought premium version. I like autopause feature.
January 12, 2019 | Version 2.2.0
The app is good, but not for me. I tried to remouve it. I'm not able. My device crash every time.

The complete installation and de-installation process is handled by Garmin without any influence of 3rd party apps
October 27, 2018 | Version 2.2.0
It offers the possibility to customize numbers of 4 or 7 data field pages which can be fully free configured by yourself (in premium version).
My opinion: 5€ worth
October 21, 2018 | Version 2.2.0
I love the app...
I use it on a forerunner 235.
Easy setup, enough data...
1 question: It's set on "walking" because most of the time I walk on the road and offroad.
When I put it on walking, garmin connect gives me a "green" window (good walk) but no periodic data (after each km), just the total of the walk.
When I put it on Hiking, I get a "red" (bad walk) window, but I see the data of each km...
What can I do?
October 3, 2018 | Version 2.1.1
I can't believe I donated to this disappointing app. I used this app on a hike from Tres Cime in the Dolomites. It recorded a 4.5 mile hike(mostly all descent) as 1.87 miles. Fortunately I had Gaim GPS running on my phone to record the actual descent.
October 14, 2018, RH-SPORTS
I took a look at the results. For me it looks that the Auto-Pause mode is active. This is indicated by a yellow pause signal. During Auto-Pause no session recording is done. This has impact to several data fields like distance, ascending, descending, session time, etc. Please disable the feature in the app settings by setting Auto Start/Stop limit to 0.

Habe Hiking, Swimming und Running Premium gekauft und finde die Apps super und das alles für kleines Geld Die Swimming App habe ich jetzt 7 Wochen lang täglich im Meer mit der Garmin Vivoactiv HR getestet. Einfach für mich perfekt. Großes Kompliment an den Entwickler. Zur Running App eine Frage: gibt es eine Lösung GPS wie bei der Hiking App auf Ultratrac umstellen um Akku zu sparen?
May 14, 2018 | Version 1.8.0
Great, but what GPS power option is closest to "smart" for the default app?
May 11, 2018 | Version 1.8.0
I love the app, got the paid version. Is there an autolap function? I can't see one anywhere
February 13, 2018 | Version 1.7.0
This app is really great. Just a quick glance and all the information you need is there. No need to dig out your phone and unlock it. The fields are easily customizable with lots of choices. And a quick response when I had a question.
January 9, 2018 | Version 1.7.0
Ich nutze die Cycling-, die Cross-Country- und die Hiking-App. Alle drei Apps sind richtig toll. Bei der Hiking-App fehlt mir lediglich der Lap-Mode. Wäre sehr schön, wenn dieser in der nächsten Version enthalten wäre. In den anderen Apss ist er ja auch drin. Weiter so, vielen Dank.
January 6, 2018 | Version 1.7.0
Although the application says that the data field changes have been successfully updated, they never are. The data fields stay with the default values
October 15, 2017 | Version 1.5.0
Erstmal Super App. Habe mir Premium für alle Apps gekauft um die Entwicklung voranzutreiben. Habe vivoactive3 und viele Apps sind noch nicht kompatibel.
Bei dieser App fehlen im Vergleich zu anderen Apps: 1. Waypoints erstellen. 2. Die App kurzzeitig zu verlassen um andere Widgets einzusehen (mit Swype nach rechts). 3. Eigene Datenfelder einbinden oder zumindest eine Kartendarstellung der Route. Zumindest konnte ich diese Einstellungen nicht finden.
Ansonsten sehr übersichtlich und gut lesbar.
Volle Punkte, wenn die fehlenden Funktionen ergänzt wurden (gibt es ja bei anderen, kostenlosen Apps auch)
September 26, 2017 | Version 1.5.0
Diese App ist einfach super.
Ich benutze auf meiner Garmin fenix 3 HR die Cycling und die Hiking App in der Premium Verision (Early Bird) und eigentlich meist nur die 7 Field View.
Diese kann ich so konfigurieren, dass ich wirklich alle für mich relevanten Informationen immer direkt sehe. - PERFEKT !!!
Das Einzige was ich schade finde ist dass ich die heruntergeladenen Apps offenbar nicht in die Garmin-Interne Multisport App integrieren kann. Sie werden dort einfach nicht angeboten, sondern nur die Garmin Standard Apps. Ich fahre oft mit dem Rad zum Berg, steige dann rauf und runter und dann mit dem Rad wieder nach Hause. Dazu bietet Garmin eigentlich die Multisport-App an, mit der ich zwischen versch. Apps hin- und herswitchen kann, und ich schlussendlich aber nur 1 Activity habe.
Wenn ich die Hiking und Cycling App verwenden will, muss ich dazu jetzt 3 Actitivies verwenden (2x Cycling und 1x Hiking).
Geht das wirklich nicht, oder mache ich was falsch ?

I go hiking once or twice a week. I like the app but I never checked the accuracy before. Last week I was on a peak In Waterton National park. There was another couple on top and we compared the altitude and the hiking app said I was 75 meters lower than his GPS and I also compared with the write up on the peak and mine was definitely out by 75 meters. The other thing is the hike was 19 .3 kms and the app only registered about 10,000 steps. in my estimation only about 1/2 the steps it should have registered. Does the premium version have more accuracy?
July 26, 2017 | Version 1.4.2
My favorite hiking app. Very flexible as every field can get one of the many relevant data-options. The altitude graph is nice; gives added value compared to a datafield one otherwise could make/use with the same info
