After installing the app did you reboot your watch? This is some times required. Please contact me via the developer link if you would like assistance.

A really good app for hiking. One good improvement would be to have the ability to change the longtatude/latitude to GB OS grid references as this would assist with navigation.

Really well thought out and very functional. One thing that could be added is the ability to lock out the buttons so you don't accidently pause a hike.

Down loaded this app today -then found vivoactive was frozen: time; activity apps etc. Have had to do a hard restart. Obviously can't be sure its the app but its not happened previously. Haven't tried the hiking app! Disappointed.

This is certainly not normal behaviour. My main watch is the Vivoactive HR and this hasn't happened to me. I would guess there was something going on with your watch at the time which caused the crash. Contact me via the developer link if you would like assistance.

Magnífica aplicación. La información muy útil. Con traducción a español, sería perfecta

Excellent on my vivoactiveHR, but sometimes it doesn't start and shows an IQ error messsage.

Could you please contact me via the "Contact Developer" link so I may investigate the issue you are experiencing. Thanks

Excellent !! Highly recommended !! Works perfectly !!

February 6, 2017

Works great with the vivoactive HR.

February 5, 2017

Very useful app. Please handle the exception when calibrate gps during recording: activity is saved without prompt and you have to start a new one. keep up the good work. Thanks

February 1, 2017

Love it. Bread crumb trail is very effective and useful. Is it possible to set auto pause? Thank you.

Ottima app, bel lavoro!

January 31, 2017

hallo auf meiner Viviactive HR steht immer nur das kein GPS Signal. Und was nun ??

Developer Reply

Wanderer wartet, bis es ein gutes GPS-Signal gibt, bevor man vorschlägt, die Wanderung zu beginnen. Sie können diese Einstellung überschreiben und die Starttaste trotzdem drücken, aber die Aktivität wird möglicherweise nicht korrekt aufgezeichnet. Wenn die Anwendung auf dem "Warten auf GPS" bleibt, dann verschieben Sie entweder an einen anderen Standort in der freien Ansicht des Himmels oder versuchen Sie eine der Anwendung von Garmin, um sicherzustellen, dass die Uhr richtig funktioniert und ein GPS-Signal empfangen kann. Hiker waits until there is a good GPS signal before suggesting to start the hike. You may override this and press start anyway but the activity may not record correctly. If the app remains on the "Waiting for GPS" then either move to another location in clear view of the sky or try one of Garmin's app to ensure you watch is functioning correctly and can receive a GPS signal.

Works great with a vivoactive HR. Its all the data you need for a hike WITH a breadcrumb trail Sweet

January 19, 2017

It's the perfect app for my hikes, thanks! I love that it all show the hight, and even draws a map for you to find your way back. Would only be great to be able to lock the buttons as my gloves do press the buttons easily. Thanks for this great app!

prima App, perfekt für Wandertouren- auch zur Anzeige des Tempe Sensors geeignet. Danke

January 9, 2017

if i can switch it from Mile to Km ? I am from China i have no idea abut Mile. Thanks

This is controlled by the watch. Change the distance units on your watch using the settings menu. Hiker reads these settings and adjusts to suit your preferences.

Ich bin nicht sicher, ob ich die App verstanden habe, aber mir fehlt die Möglichkeit die Datenfelder einzustellen. Mich interessiert zB die Uhrzeit gar nicht, dafür würde ich dort gerne den Puls sehen. Außerdem sehe ich die Meereshöhe nicht sondern nur die Maximale Meereshöhe auf der ich war. Beim Abstieg ist das sinnlos. Außerdem finde ich nicht wo ich die Anzeige der schon abgeschlossenen Wanderungen einsehen kann (nur die Garmin Anzeige in History).

Works great and perfectly on Fenix Chronos !!

December 30, 2016

Super application, toutes les infos nécessaires y sont et je suis fan des graphes. Pour ceux qui voudraient quelque chose de proche pour le trail running je recommande l'application "Runner" du même développeur !

December 28, 2016

First start and immediate watch restart. Uninstalled.

Developer Reply
December 29, 2016, JohnD25

I'm sorry to hear that your watch restarted. This is not normal and hasn't happened to me. If you would like assistance then please contact me via the developer link and provide details of your watch and firmware version. If your watch has recently had updates applied to it then they sometimes need to be rebooted for apps to function correctly. This may be the reason why it restarted.

December 27, 2016

Très bonne application. Je regrette juste que dans les champs d'option, on ne puisse pas mettre par exemple vitesse et vitesse max, ce qui permettrait de l'utiliser avec beaucoup d'autres sports. La dernière page " trail " est incroyablement efficace. Merci

December 27, 2016

Love the app. Is it possible to allow it to run in the background so that you can look at other widgets and things while recording a hike? Thanks

Developer Reply
December 29, 2016, JohnD25

I would love to add this feature but don't believe it's possible with the current firmware and SDK.

Great app, worked fine

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
