I like the idea

When I first downloaded this app it worked very well, so I bought the premium. It still worked for a few days, since that I always get "response 0" on the phone map screen, no matter what I do, tried literally everything, reinstalled all 3 apps, tried every single setting to make it working, but nothing helps. Please fix it as soon as possible, this isn't what I paid for!

Great app but one big problem. Missing widget function so that can be used at the same time as native Garmin activity is running.. I do not like compromise that I need to use or this app or activity. I do not like option to use only Locus activity, because it's not so detailed as Garmin. So please make also Widget which can be run at the same time as other activity. Then this would be win-win situation.

A good Idea and the funtions are all taht i need to record and navigate.But the loading time of the maps is far to long which i expected.I test this on different devices ,Watches and phones.I test a short walk but at no time the gps point of the watch was like on my phone so not to use für navigation mainly for orientation if you wait a minute untilthe full map is loaded and i take a view on it.Well great idea but i think there ist bluetooth limitation. So i think it would a better idea that the data which would be transfered permantly per bluetooth wold be saved on the watch before like on fenix 2 .it should only be a storage problem.

Hi Pit, thanks for your feedback. However usual refresh time of map screen is from 6 to 12 seconds, so not sure why you get that long refresh. But in any case, it will never be as quick as on your phone due to limitations on side of Garmin connectivity capabilities. Store map permanently on device in advance is not possible to implement on Connect IQ platform.

Great app. It adds some missing functions to my venu. Being able to see the phone's map on my watch is simply amazing. Navigation is nice too.

Hi. Version 2.2.2 fixed issue with crash on Fenix3. Now if run any activities, works text helper which direct you in course. Still show remaining distance for next turn, common distance and final direction. For me, this is more than enough. Thanks!

Hi, some maps doesn't have great contrast on Garmin screens due to limited colors which can Garmin devices render. I would suggest to you to try LoMaps which are tweaked to look as good as possible on Garmins. Also, on you device you can try to activate Enhanced colors mode - check app settings within the app!

No issues with Fenix 5. Its great to have maps, while it is not officially supported by Garmin :).

All in all a good approach. But the delay of the map loading ist still too high. The VA3 needs some time for calibration of the altitude. I would like to see the altitude at the Startscreen, in order to start recording when altitude is correct. Or can the record screen chosen to be visible without recording? Is there anyway for switching to VA3 Menü like messages during recording?

Thanks you for your feedback Gerhard. We have bigger plans with data recording screen for the future version, so we will consider to allow them to show even without activity is running. Could you send us to [email protected] what do you mean by your last question?

The addition of the map on your wrist is excellent, and makes an ok app great! The only improvement I would like would be the ability to start the tracking on my phone with my watch, but excellent app

It is very good. But i am disapointed with connection status. I would like to hide permanently message HeartRate sensor is off (during connection. It can be in app settings). Also i thought my phone is connected with watches so i didn't understand why i have error message connect to mobile first. But i hade bt on watches off (for some reason i didn't know). It could be fine to have icon showing bt off in this message.
