Cool app! Thanks!
October 11, 2020 | Version 3.1.1

I'm using the tool for years, and I love it ! However, with version 3.1.1, I have the impression there is a bug with the Right H Alignment.

If you have any questions or complaints please post them in the forum, you will be helped there quickly.

October 3, 2020 | Version 3.0.2

Amazing work, now I have my own perfect datafield and everything is easy and well documented. If you have some troubles in the begining just take a look at the examples included

hi and my congratulation for your excellent work can i get cadence by lap? and i would like know if is posible add expressions like "average power x time" with it i wil get the total work

September 23, 2020 | Version 3.0.2

Hi When I insert an Arc(X=123, Y=642, Start A.=258, End A.=282, Radius=600) on Edge 830 the layout becomes distorted. With Circle with same parameters is OK. Can you please check.

Thanks for your rating. As already answered in the forum, this is a known SDK bug. There is nothing I can do, it has to be fixed by Garmin.

That's what i need to build my datafields.

Garmin Edge 520

It doesn´t work average and maximum gradient on garmin edge 520.

Would be nice if you asked your question in the forum before giving a review

Sergio Vázquez
May 31, 2020 | Version 2.9.7

El mejor campo de datos de toda la tienda de aplicaciones. El desarrollador sin duda merece una donación!! Muchas gracias!!!

May 19, 2020 | Version 2.9.6

What's even more amazing that the datafield itself and the designer application, is the support provided to all users by the author on the forum. This datafield is the only way to get a perfect, customized and personalized view of your activities on your device, worth the learning curve, as its usage is intuitive, easy and well documented.

Tomás Masiá
May 13, 2020 | Version 2.9.0

Sin duda es el mejor campo de datos de toda la tienda de aplicaciones de Garmin, puedes hacer, con algo de paciencia, cualquier tipo de campo de datos para tus intereses. Sería genial tener alojado en algún sitio, los trabajos que la gente va desarrollando sobre sus necesidades/deportes, sería de mucha utilidad ver ejemplos (además de los incluidos con la descarga de la aplicación) de o que la comunidad va realizando. Hay uno de los campos el TSS que en la versión 2.9.0 no muestra ningún dato, siempre se queda en valor "0", por lo demás, absolutamente recomendable

Developer Reply

Hi Sorry I dont speak spanish so I had to use google translate. For using TSS you must have a "Normalized Power" value anywhere on the layout (doesnt have to be visible). It needs the value to calculate the TSS!

Hi! The app does not load examples, nor does it save the results of creating fields. What might be the problem? I tried it on two different computers running Windows 10.

Developer Reply

Hi What does it do when trying to load a file? Please write your problem into the forum thread, I can help better there.

May 10, 2020 | Version 2.9.0

Hi I have a problem and request please When i install the programme on the laptop it wont let me click the "maximise" screen shot so I dont get the bottom about 15% of the screen Is it possible to add a data field parameter to the available options which is stride length average current/ average of last xxseconds/ total run thank you

Developer Reply
May 10, 2020, hundsmiachn

Hi Sorry, but the minimum required screen resolution is 1280x1024. Its just not possible to fit alle the elements into a smaller area. But you can use the shortcuts for open, save, export ... Stride length is already available as "(H) ANT RunDyn step length". For the average just set the "nr of values" (average over xxx seconds). For total you will have to set it to your maximum expected running time (2hours for example then nr of values should be 2*60*60 = 7200)

April 28, 2020 | Version 2.8.3

A very worthy successor of easuvorovs DIY Data Field (public beta). I fully agree to all *****Ratings. Idea and functionality: brilliant. I use the app to have more data on the map screen of the edge 1030 (2 fields only whilst the Oregon had 4).

Steve Rodkey
April 26, 2020 | Version 2.8.3

Fantastic data field. Allows you make custom data fields showing almost anything you want. Allows you to put much more information on the screen than Garmin does. You can do just numbers, or add graphics. It is absolutely amazing how flexible it is. By far the most useful IQ app I have seen. I have been using it on an Edge 830. Developer seems very responsive to bugs or feature requests.

April 20, 2020 | Version 2.7.7

The best datafield I've had on my 735 ever. Fully customizable and no any troubles with showing all the parameters available for my watch. Highly recommend!

Joachim Heinze
April 16, 2020 | Version 2.7.3

great data field, with this, I must only use one site with all information on it. but only one thing you have impelemented with the last version.... yesterday, I tried to start my edge and he was telling me, that my configuration string is incompatible to the data field version...I think, I have to sop automatically updating my IQ apps. And remember, if you are not able to create a new configuration string with the tool, you cannot use this data field. maybe, to make the version compare only with major releases.... And, of course the support of the develloper is great...

Michael Immenschuh
February 21, 2020 | Version 2.4.2

Fantastic, incredible flexible and customizable data field. Works perfect on my fenix 6X. Great piece of work. You can have all the relevant parameters/values for cycling available in one single layout.

February 17, 2020 | Version 2.4.2

Super!!! Is it possible to add 10s (3s) Average Power? Thank you

Developer Reply
February 18, 2020, hundsmiachn

Hi You can configure the averaging duration as you like in the designer. Just set the "nr of values" for this value to 3 or 10 (averages over 3 / 10s). regards Erich

Michael Götten
February 17, 2020 | Version 2.4.2

Very nice and stable for my edge 1030. Any plans to integrate Di2 values too, since the "Gear" variable doesn't seem to be Di2?!

Developer Reply
February 17, 2020, hundsmiachn

Hi Thanks for your rating! At the moment there are no plans for DI2 because it would require a complete implementation of the BLE interface. Till now the datafield aims to be as lightweight as possible. But I will take a look into BLE communcation for at least the "high memory" devices. regards Erich

How add layout?

Developer Reply
February 8, 2020, hundsmiachn

Press the button "Copy to clipboard in the designer". Paste this string into the settings of the diy datafield in garmin express into the "Default layout string" setting.

Peter Fjelsten
February 3, 2020 | Version 2.4.1

Best ever. Everything Garmin allows. Very reponsive developer.

January 30, 2020 | Version 2.3.6

Great! Does it work as smaller data field only - like half screen of two screens (with created data only on that side where data field will be positioned? Will it have W' Bal? Diy datafield is best option ever, but not so great when lacks one or more crucial feature(s) or some feature does not work good (i had issues with easuvorov's gradient feature..) EDIT: It does work as any data field (not just standalone) and it shows upper part of DIY! Just Great!;)

December 30, 2019 | Version 2.1.4

Spectacular!! Is it possible to enter a field with temperature?

Toni Tijeras
December 9, 2019 | Version 1.3.0

Awesome. I miss some data fields, like temperature, sunrise, di2, etc... but I love this plugin

Christian Thielemann
December 8, 2019 | Version 1.2.9

Thank you for the fully customizable data field.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
