Hello. just tested it few times to check how it works and I think it is a really good app. But I think there is a problem: it doesn't count the number of steps properly on my Forerunner 235. For 4km I got only 300 steps. Does it happen to someone else?

Love this app on my Foreunner 735xt!! - It is easily the best hiking app out there !!! I have been using this app for 12 months for recreational hikes as well as for my work - brilliant ! My only regret ? I have just upgraded to Fenix 5x, sadly no version available for this device (yet!)

Fatal!!!!! Lo instale en Garmin Fénix 3 HR y al utilizarlo me bloqueó el reloj.

A great app, can confirm that on Fenix 3Hr that latest firmware upgrade to 8.70 fixes crashing issues with no changes to Hiker. The problem was within the firmware not hiker.

Garmin have fixed the issue introduced in firmware version 4.50. Please update your firmware to version 4.70. This will correct the crashing and sync issue you have seen in Hiker. There is no need to update the Hiker app itself.

I downloaded the app yesterday (for my Forerunner 235) and put it to the test today. Worked 100%!!

I walked 6 hours today and rely on this app to record my hike, everything good to show on screen on the go, but nothing sync to my account after? Totally crap. I just checked back and find the version conflict. Who will check this information before use the app? That's terrible.

I'm assuming you have a fenx 3 or fenix 3 HR. This issue was caused by a bug in the firmware, versions 8.50 and 4.50 respectively. This has now been fixed in versions 8.70 and 4.70. Sorry for the inconvenience caused but I was powerless to resolve the issue as it was firmware related.

I come from VA HR when I used this app. Now I am a Vivoactive 3 user but the app miss. When will be it compatible with the Vivoactive 3?

crashes on my fenix3 HR when I save

The crashing issue you have reported is due to a bug in the Fenix firmware. Garmin are aware of this and I believe it is fixed in the beta releases. I haven't tested this myself as I don't own a Fenix 3. Once the mainstream firmware has been released I will remove the notice I've put on the information page of Hiker.

Love this app for my hiking. Works great on my Forerunner 630. Any chance it will work on my new Fenix 5?

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
