Latest Garmin firmware update created some issues with the GPS start. We further attempted to fix the issues in the latest app version 1.6. Please update the app and test again. Let us know if you still have issues through "Contact Developer". Thank you.

Je l'utilise en planche a voile, et elle est très bien. Bien lisible en navigation, et après le rapport est parfait. Merci

So far so good. But I miss km marker to see the distances on the map. Please add the Feature. Thank you

Works very well and finally don't need to manually set activity type!

Works great with speed & GPS

Question to dev. team: especially for kitesurfing I would want to enable the auto lock screen to avoid accidental ‘stop’ of the session. Normally, when you start a sport activity the lock appears after a few seconds so you know the screen is locked. I don’t see the lock appear when starting this app. After 10 seconds or so it seems that the screen is locked (which is good of course) but I would want to see it going into lock status. Do I miss something here?

Developer Reply

Touch screen is locked as soon as the session starts. It is not the kind of lock that requires "unlock" (app can't do that) - instead all screen touches are ignored. The buttons are still active though - that is how you control the app. You can always enable "Lock" through hot buttons yourself too, but we think that current solution is ideal for kiteboarding. Thanks

Is it possible to develop and add an item in the statistics: "500m best speed"

This is great. Finally I don't have to mess around changing activity type in Garmin/Strava after a session. The only slightly odd thing I find with it is that it starts the session immediately. The core Garmin activity apps and most 3rd party apps start paused (this also allows time for GPS lock to occur) and then the start stop button can be used to begin the session and pause it when necessary. If the devs read these reviews, it would be great could look at this.

Thanks for the feedback. The controls are simplified intentionally - we feel that the less you have to communicate with your watch on the water the better! Also, we don't want the session to be accidentally paused from hitting ENTER button. We think that this behavior is better suited for Kitesurfing activity.

October 1, 2021 | Version 1.0.2

Great app! For the times that I use my directional board without my Woo.

Maciej Bałuta

I'm a beginner kitesurfer and just wanted to save my session to understand what kind of speed and distance I get when riding. I don't have Woo, just my Garmin and this app does exactly what I needed and works flawlessly.

September 25, 2021 | Version 1.0.2

Works good on my Vivoactive 3
