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.

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.
