Same here, screen goes black in a IQ! modus on my fenix 6 pro

Die App nervt nur. Hab sie auf meiner Vivioactive 3 installiert, stürzt ständig ab, zeichnet dann auch nicht weiter auf, reagiert auf keinen Befehl mehr. Scheint kein Einzelfall zu sein, wenn ich mir die anderen Bewertungen ansehe. Schlecht auch, dass der Entwickler auf Anfrage nicht reagiert.

Best app for windsurfing. One suggestion. It will be nice to have one of the max speed on main screen. Now it is available only in pause mode.

The APP is not starting, I get just a black screen on my Venu 2.

July 6, 2021 | Version 0.48.0

This app simply sucks. The idea is great but the app freezes after you pause the session. Not possible to leave it and after reboot of the watch it changes to running instead of windsurfing ... Too bad ...

July 2, 2021 | Version 0.4.2

Don't be put off by the negative reviews, great app to track your windsurfing session. I have used it from the initial version and the developer continues to update. Thanks.

I get IQ! on the screen after 1,5 hours of windsurfing and i cant remove it unless i press the "back"button but then it leaves the windsurfing recording. I have the Move IQ disabled and my watch is Fenix 6S saphire

June 5, 2021 | Version 0.4.2

It suspends the garnin watch, no way to do anything, even when i try ‚uninstal’ it was impossible due to ‚uninstalation errorr’, terrible... i hope if garmin run out of battery it will be possible to uninstal the apl.

I am a happy user of your app, and have built a surflog app that gives me an overview of my sessions. My question to you is, the only way to see that the activity was windsurfing, is by downloading the FIT file. If your app could set the activity to "WIND/KITE SURFING" my app can better find those activities that are windsurfing. It is not a problem after the user connects their device to my site as I get the FIT file from Garmin for new activities, but I can also get previous activities, although not FIT files.

If your watch uses Garmin SDK Version 3.0.10 or newer the activity type should be "SPORT_WINDSURFING". Older devices don't support this and use "GENERIC" acivity.

Bij het starten van een sessie krijg je eerst een zwart scherm, daarna lijkt hij het te doen, echter Sessie stopt als je per abuis op het scherm tikt. Geeft geen max snelheden weer

Good app, but sometimes it crashes on Fenix 6X Pro Solar. Also, my activities are not recorded as "Windsurfing" but "Other" in Garmin Connect, meaning I have to open and edit my sessions from time to time.

Excited for first use. How do you take the gps data and do a map overlay?

Developer Reply
July 2, 2021, Georg_R

The different devices may use different ways to get the GPS data. There is little I could find out from Garmin. So, unfortunately I don't see a way to make the measurement suitable for official speed windsrufing contests.

Awesome app, it does loads to improve data recovery for your session, one slight issue i seem to have with the app is i cant seem to make it tell me my distance traveled in miles rather than kilometres which would be helpful, but i suppose its a small price to pay for what is a pretty nice app. used with a Fenix 6 pro.

Very nice app for windsurfing!

November 27, 2020 | Version 0.45.0

Excellent. Best of it's kind.

October 26, 2020 | Version 0.45.0

Nice idea for windsurfers, it crashes a lot on my vivoactive though, I also changed mi/h to km/h and pressed save. It still shows my speed in mi/h and in knots. What am I doing wrong? Regards Maikel

October 11, 2020 | Version 0.45.0

Used on a Vivoactive 3 Works great, I love it. A couple of suggestions: - Could you add a parameter to specify "Windsurf" or "Kitesurf" in order to generate the proper activity name (today it is always "[location] Windsurf") - Could you also create the activity with type "WIND/KITE SURFING" (today it is created as "OTHER") Thanks again for this great app.

Great work but often it crashes on FENIX 6 It also could be great to start, stop and eventually pause the app. Thanks!

To pause, press the start button, to resume, press again
