Отличный виджет.

settings cannot be changed on vivoactive3 though - clicking in the app on the watch open "iq"error icon, changing settings via the Android Garmin connect tool has no effect

This would be because the VA3 is not actually supported, and was added by accident. VA3 will be removed in 2.1.1, and added back in later

I like that this app gives the option of MGRS (10 Digit Grids) but it's a little complicated to figure out how to get the app to convert to it. I have been trying and still can't figure it out. I have the Fenix 5x, but have been trying to follow prior ways in the comments which are all based on the older watches.

Thanks for the catch. I accidentally overwrote that info in the description. Should be fixed now. “These settings are configurable in the in-app menu, which is accessed by the device menu button (many devices use the long press on the up button as the menu button).”

I like your app GPS Metrics, but I want to change some fields in this app with accordance to my desire. It will be also simple fields from my device Fenix 3. Could you help me with this?

You change the units by going into the app menu. To do this on the Fenix 3, just hold the up button.

For those of us who use MGRS on a daily occurrence, this is the app to have. Simple, clean and effective. Doesn't waste battery and is reliable. Thank you GriffW.

Couldn't get it to display on a Fenix 3 no matter what I did.

Please use the contact developer button. Leaving a 1 star review, does not help me to help you.

States MGRS as one of the 3 options for coordinates viewing. The app only shows Lat/Long even after changing the option in Garmin Express

That would be because you cannot change the settings in Garmin Express/mobile. You can only change them in the app. From the description: “These are configurable in the in-app menu, which is accessed by the device menu button (many devices use the long press on the up button as the menu button).“

Not too versatile in my opinion. Just Lat and long in decimal degrees. There are many options to viewing coordinates. Lat and Long in degrees, minutes, seconds and UTM coordinates with zone. Users should be able to change those kinds of options.

There are 3 formats that can be switched between. Including minutes and seconds.

Great application! Versatile, clever and useful. Very helpfull for sailing sports as GPS speed meter and useful to approach the error given by the speed log due to the sea current. It also gives the actual course over ground (COG) for point to point cruising. Thank you!!
