I have only just purchased a Fenix 5x and trying to figure everything out. Surf Traver v2 sounds like a great app, but..... How about some detailed instructions on how to install this data field??? Not everyone is a expert on Garmin apps. I am trying to add it to the SUP activity.

the application seems great to me. nevertheless, it is the second time that happens to me, that the data obtained in the surftracker session is not transferred to my mobile or to my computer. it is as if the application had disappeared, but because of what the clock shows, it is still installed. Why can this happen?

"What could be happening?" - not reading the instructions perhaps? It is a data field not an app. Add it to an existing activity.

Took a little while for me to get this dialed in (operator error not developer error), but now this is one of my favorite data fields on the whole watch. Great job...the recent enhancement of direction detection before your surf is super helpful, since I live on an island and where I am surfing is constantly changing. Mahalo!

Having trouble adjusting settings for regular surfing. I get lots of false positives. I usually surf in Encinitas, California and currently have parameters set up as 10-6-15-10 W(270),35... added min distance and false positives were less frequent. Sometimes I get them when paddling back to the outside after ducking a wave. I'm wondering if loss of GPS connectivity is causing it... Please help!

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
