Hello Stefan, Sorry for your disappointment. Frankly speaking, I never met such a crash on my watches (vivoactive 3 and venu); and I receive too few information from users to investigate deeply. Don’t hesitate to send me more information to [email protected]: duration/distance of your hiking, running, trail, watch type, what is it happen when you restart your watch,…there a file in your watch APPS/CIQ log file which trace the crash, may you send me it. I would like to understand. Did you check your battery level? GPS consum battery, battery duration with GPS is often overestimate by GARMIN; for a long hiking that could be not enough. Best regards

Very nice application. I used it more times with my Vivoactive 3 and everything worked fine. But now after upgrade to system version 6.90 I have the same problem as mentioned Casey in his review. When I tried to save the track, my watch was locked on the screen where you can select save or discard your track. After restart of the watch also other external watch faces and miniapplications were damaged. So I decided to delete it. It’s a pity. Can you fix it please?

Hello Vlado, After checking and some reading on garmin forum, I think that the problem come from the firmware, which should be upgrade. Many user had problem with the last firmware 6.9 without using my app.....and I have really no problem with my vivoactive 3 watch. I hope that Garmin will fix that soon. Sincerely your

Hi, Sorry for your disappointment. My app fully operates on my vivoactive 3. Maybe the problem comes from your watch, I don't more detail to help you. Best regards

Thank you for making a simple and easy to read interface. This is exactly what I needed for my hiking. I need to know quickly what zone I am in and this is perfect. If I stop within zone 5 while hiking up a mountain, without going into zone 3 first I am in a world of hurt so this will help me cool down properly.
