very nice app. but could you explain, how i can use my run oder bike aktivity if the navigation is running ?

Developer Reply
June 1, 2020, Alexis_Lecanu

It is impossible it is not a data field but an application. For the moment it is impossible to have 2 applications at the same time or that a data field communicates with the phone. You can only record the activity via the menu of my application by activating the recording. I'm sorry too I would have liked but it is technical constraints.

May 30, 2020 | Version 1.5.2

Hello Very nice app thank you. Can you advice me how can I use map while I'm recording bicycle session? I would like to be able to use your map when I go to unknown place and also record my sesion to analyse on Garmin connect after all.

Developer Reply
June 1, 2020, Alexis_Lecanu

It is an application at once you cannot launch two applications at the same time but in the menu you can ask to record the activity.

May 24, 2020 | Version 1.5.2

Hey, thanks for the App ;) i just wanted to get directions from Google Maps, while riding the bike in the city. It worked sometimes, but unfortunately it doesnt start on the watch (fenix5splus) anymore since couple of weeks.. i dont know whats wrong.. greets

Developer Reply
May 25, 2020, Alexis_Lecanu

thank you for the return, there are communication problems with the Garmin Connect sdk. For the moment Garmin recommends to restart the phone, I am sorry for the concern. Don't hesitate to use the problem button in the Android app to contact me.

May 22, 2020 | Version 1.5.2

Hey great app love it ,but I can't seem to find the settings to change from white to black background I have a Venu

On the simulator it's a long click on the screen, it's like going to a menu I overload the menu button.

Works perfect! The app starts when your Google maps navigation begins. Clear and easy to follow directions on the watch. Should be standard on every Garmin watch.

May 13, 2020, Alexis_Lecanu

Thank you very much, if garmin contacts me I would be ready to give my code without worry. The concern is that on iOS it is impossible and suddenly I do not think it interests them.

Can you add option for right steered countries, i think your apps is based on left steered countries, so the "joining main flow" sign arrow is directing to the right, it is a bit confusing for right steered country user.

Developer Reply
May 7, 2020, Alexis_Lecanu

Hello, can you send me a screenshot of the Google Maps notification as well as the watch that displays this error? I'm just trying to display Google Maps notifications on the watch. It is not me who manages the left rights but maybe I recognize but the notification icon.

May 2, 2020 | Version 1.5.1

Hello! Good job , Is it somehow possible to have activity (running cycling) tracking switched on at the same time ? Or different app or data field ?

Developer Reply
May 3, 2020, Alexis_Lecanu

Thank you for your feedback, a data field cannot communicate with the phone suddenly it's impossible. This is why in the application settings you can ask to save it as an activity.

It doesn't connect with my Google maps navigation

Developer Reply
April 26, 2020, Alexis_Lecanu

Can you contact me via the Android application then the Problem button. I am dependent on so much that it can come from Google Maps, from the configuration of your phone or as often from the Garmin sdk which has been malfunctioning for 2 years. I'm waiting for your email to tell you more specifically about the concern and if we can resolve it

April 25, 2020 | Version 1.5.1

Wonderful App (that should be included as standard). Perfect on the motorcycle. Many thanks. Small suggestion: Black (inverted colours) would be wonderful, no idea if possible. (Fenix 5 plus)

Juste indiqué "lancer une navigation sur maps" .. j' ai loupé un truc ? This app is a good Idea and i d like to pay a beer but it doesn t work with m'y 6X. I launch maps on my phone and then the app on my watch but nothing ... May i miss something ...

Pouvez vous me contacter via l'application Android puis le bouton Problème. Je suis dépendant de tellement de chose que ca peut venir de Google Maps, de la configuration de votre téléphone ou comme souvent du sdk de Garmin qui fonctionne mal depuis 2 ans. J'attends votre email pour vous dire plus précisément le souci et si on peut le résoudre.

April 15, 2020 | Version 1.5.1

Unfortunately it doesn't work on rhe Vivoactive 3. The green button can't be pressed to start the app on the watch.

Hello, this is a garmin concern on vivo. I advise you to start the application yourself.

Amazing app, rarely use the android auto anymore. Did they fix the Connect bug? I don't get the "start navigation" freeze anymore. Or am i just lucky lately?

The latest update just adds watches, so the worry is not there. Probably linked to google mpas or Garmin connect. use the problem button on the Android app to send me logs so I can help you.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
