Garmin Vivoactive 4, didn't work. Got Google maps running but the watch just sits on "start a navigation"

Please use the "Problem" button in the Android application because problems are often related to the phone. Bad configuration or sdk garmin not supported.

Sorry about the problem, I've been waiting 3 years for a correction from Garmin.

Awesome Idea! Kudos to the developer.. I hope it will have support with other offline maps like SYGIC. Google maps sometimes takes you to dangerous, not mainly used road and non popular road.

Thanks for the feedback but as long as Garmin does not correct the communication problem I will not create a new application with communication.

Lo instalé en mi Fenix 5S y a los pocos minutos se desinstaló automaticamente, lo vuelvo a instalar y lo mismo, mi dispositivo aparece como compatible y pude abrir la app por unos segundos pero se desinstala y no funciona

Hello, thank you for your feedback. I can't manage the de-activation, are you up to date with the software of your watch?

June 21, 2021 | Version

Very reliable and fast, great companion to google maps

This was an amazing app but it stopped recognizing that the phone is running the navigation. Now it's useless.

Developer Reply
June 6, 2021, Alexis_Lecanu

Hello, it depends on several parameters, the notifications of Google Maps and the sdk of garmin you can activate the log of the application and send them to me so that I can tell you the concern. The Garmin sdk is so unstable on some phones that I think I will delete the applications to stop answering emails or having bad ones that are not my fault but as it works for some I don't know what to do.

Worked very well on a 20 min car trip today. Out walking can be a bit laggy.. Maybe it's Googles or my Huawei p30 pro fault?

Developer Reply
May 26, 2021, Alexis_Lecanu

Hello, no the problem is related to the communication sdk of Garmin which is not stable and can be slow. For the moment (it's been 3 years) Garmin does not correct anything and just says to restart the phone. I'm sorry but I'm the first one to be affected

May 24, 2021 | Version

Massive thanks to the creator of this essential app! This brings important functionality to the watch. It could actually save lives by allowing people to walk confidently through an unfamiliar area without checking their phone every few moments.

IOS please

Hello, as written in the description it is impossible unless you are an iOS expert and you know how to do it but I haven't found anyone who could bypass the iOS protections actually

Nice to be able to navigate without looking at the phone. I would wish the option to select a bigger font (it's quite small) and inverse colours (white on black).

Developer Reply

Hello, you have the possibility via the settings to change the background color and a theme with a larger font.

Bastante buena. Para Garmin 235... me falta probarla un poco para calificarla mejor. Pero la idea es muy buena. Felicidades.

Nice Work thank you. Would be cool to have a vibrating code a la vibrate once Turn right vibrate twice Turn left somethings like that

Developer Reply
April 19, 2021, Alexis_Lecanu

Thank you for your feedback, for the moment I do not update except for bug correction until Garmin fixes the problems of their sdk on communication.

April 4, 2021 | Version 1.5.4

How do I ask you a question without providing a review? I haven't tested this App fully becuase I just downloaded it but today when I went for my first ride with this app, I noticed that I could either only have this app on or the biking app on, is there a way to have both on? I turned the map NAV app on and then turned the biking app on but I didn't get any notifications on my watch for turns etc so had to keep stopping and look at my cell phone in the pocket. Also, today my bike ride didn't capture any distance but it usually always did. I believe that's because the GPS was being used by this app instead of the biking app? Plz help, thanks!

I'm using this temporary and it's a very good experience, but I would like to add (if it's possible) a few new features. 1. Show the current speed, avg or max. 2. Show a current speed of the via. 2. Show Traffic Radar Alert in the screen and other notifications like Google Maps. 3. Other intereting information, like: temperature, altimeter or Barometer info.. (this information will depends on if the device). All feature descrived before would be changed in configuration like the screen info for arrived time.

Developer Reply

Hello, for the moment I do not make any changes until garmin corrects the communication problem. Because it's almost work for nothing. So I'm only going to fix if there is a need but nothing else for now.

April 1, 2021 | Version 1.5.4

After discovering that I had to install the Nav Garmin App on my phone as well as the app on my watch, the app appears to work. I'll have to play with it some more for a higher rating. Thanks for having it here for us to use!!

Thanks for your feedback, how can I change the description to make it clearer? Because it says you have to install an Android app and there is the Compagnion app button too. Thank you for your feedback.

It is an app, not a datafield. It means that you can't use it and record at the same time. workout at the same time.

Developer Reply
March 28, 2021, Alexis_Lecanu

You are right because it is impossible to have a communication with the phone on a data field. You can ask to record the activity in the settings if you wish.

Not working with 6xPro

Developer Reply
March 14, 2021, Alexis_Lecanu

Please use the problem button on the Android app to send me logs so I can help you. The problems are 100% on the phone, on the watch side the code has not changed for 3 years and I also have a 6Xpro. On the phone, people forget to activate Google maps notifications or a problem with the garmin sdk or a battery manager that stops the garmin service to communicate with the watch.

March 6, 2021 | Version 1.5.4

Just took a long trip and it worked perfectly. Thanks!
