Great app, thank you! Almost all important data are shown in a very good layout. Some possible enhancements: Additional optional data on main page: - ascent/descent RATE [+/- xxx m/h] - velocity [km/h] Map page: - display of favorites (waypoints) - view scalable - optional: UTM coordinate - optional: Orientation track up

This is a very good app. Exactly what I was after. My only suggestion for improvement is whether it would be possible to increase the font size on the main screen or have an option to have fewer visible fields but with increased text/font size. Alternatively could there be another customisable screen allowing the user to choose the display fields? Eyesight is not up to it ... I must be getting old :) Keep up the good work.

APP causes my Fenix3 to crash, and loose all daily data in the process. I did a reinstall and rebooted the watch. That didn't help. Which is really sad because when the app decides to work it is brilliant! Sadly it is to unstable for me.

Julian, can you please contact me via the developer link? I have tested the app on the Fenix 3 development simulator and it hasn't crashed. However, your experience is different and I would like to identify and resolve this instability.
