I have been using Hike2+ for many years (probably 5 years) with 735XT as my walking app. It is working perfect for me. Thanks to the developer. High speed alert is wonderful, several times I forgot to stop the app before start driving.

6 de octubre de 2023 | Versión 2.78.6

J'ai télécharger l'appli Hike 2+ sur mon EDGE 1030 Plus mais je ne trouve pas sur mon GPS. Comment faire? merci pour vos réponse

Respuesta del desarrollador
7 de octubre de 2023, jim_m_58

Please use "Contact developer" for questions like this instead of a review. If the 1030 is like some other edge devices (the 530), go to menu of the main page, and one of the menu items is "connect IQ". Select that, and you should see Hike2+ as an option.

Simple, no fuss app, that does exactly what it says and does so very well. It improves the limited sports selection on my Venu watch. And kudos to the dev as it seems battery usage has been quite improved from some earlier versions.

What device are you using. If it's one that doesn't have a baro altimeter, this app will display an odd elevation.

Love this little app...My only wish/improvement would be to be able to see installed maps... Great work and thank you

It does use installed maps on devices that support them. What device do you have? Use "contact developer" to let me know.

This is a good example of why you should use "Contact developer" as that way I know what device you have. On many watches it is as simple as pressing the start button from the watch face and moving down the list. On some, you have to touch the 4 colored dots to see the full list. Can you see that it's installed with Garmin Express or the Connect IQ Mobile app?

The app seems to work on the Edge 1030 Plus as long as no configurations are made via the menu. I wanted to change the GPS setting from the default to GPS+Gallileo and the app crashed. This error was reproducable several times.

18 de mayo de 2023 | Versión 2.78

Used the app for the first time today. The screens were confusing, Information overload. I felt battery was consumed more than the default Walk app (with GPS). Changed (available) settings just now. Will see how the app works on the next hike and return to update this review.

With your phone and app settings for this app you can turn of any screen but the very first one. By default it shows all that are available.

Is it possible to change the type of activity to walking? So that users with watches that dosnt support native walking activity (like 735xt) can use the hike2+ app instead

Respuesta del desarrollador
6 de mayo de 2023, jim_m_58

Before you press "start" to start recording, press "menu" (the middle left button on the 735). You'll see a menu where you can select walking or hiking..

24 de abril de 2023 | Versión 2.78

The app is nice, but it has issues. There are many data points, which is nice. But it is a real limitation of the Garmin watch to not be able to switch to other parts of the watch while this activity is active. If I am hiking for eight hours, do they really think that I will never want to look at texts, listen to music, pay at POS machines, etc? Also, the app is not accurate. I took a break and stopped hiking for 15 minutes or so. While stopped I sat and watched as the app kept adding distance to my hike! 0.01 miles every minute or two. At the end of the day I had done 20.8 miles, yet the app said I had done 23.95 miles! That is 3.15 miles above what I actually hiked. It is a nice app, but the inaccuracy makes me question why I would use it.

Depending on the watch, you can access things like the watch face and widget loop, and based on watch settings, can get notifications, etc and control music. For the 15 stop, you should "pause" the recording by pressing the stop button. If you have questions like this, use "contact developer" for the app and be sure to tell me which watch you have.

Are you outside under open sky? Can you get a good GPS lock with native apps? What it's saying is the watch can't get a good GPS lock.

18 de febrero de 2023 | Versión 2.77.4

Installed this on my Vivioactive 4 which remarkably, Gamin did not include a hiking app, closest was the Walk app which I had been using. This App is great, BUT I can only give it 3 stars because I cannot customize the setting (by clicking on the three dots). I tried to eliminate the many fields that I do not use and change a couple of other settings. When I tried to Save these settings, I repeatedly got a message, "cannot save at this time." I tried this several times w/o success. I would rate this App five stars if this is fixed and buy the developer "a cold drink" or two. Help!!

Solid hiking app. Works without any issues. Pretty much all the data one needs. Easy to use interface and battery save is awesome.

20 de diciembre de 2022 | Versión 2.77.4

PLEASE PLEASE add OSGB/BNG. That would make this app perfect!!! Developer Reply December 20, 2022, jim_m_58 I only support the formats that are supported by the FW and available in CIQ. OSGB/BNG is supported by Garrmin FWs on all their devices as does CIQ.... So please add .

Make sure you are outside under open sky. Also make sure you can get a "green" GPS with something like a run activity.

VivioActive4. Like the app face and activity on Garmin Connect. For 3 months was using Garmin Walk app to record my daily trail activity(s) on VA3 and VA4. I like data. But since I don't run, Vo2 calculations (I think) were based on "walks". My hikes supplement an AM Assault Bike workout and gives my dog some additional steps:) Thought app interfered with my intensity minutes, DUH it was a recovery day on ABike and I was marking trails at night. So Garmin said zero. User error and evidently user ignorance. THANK YOU.

The app is great and offers a ton of great information while walking or hiking. I noticed an issue with the altitude units and Venu SQ - all units on my watch are set to metric (distance is kilometers, but there is no altitude units setting, as there is no altimeter). My Connect app is also set to meters. However, the Hike 2+ app shows the altitude in feet. dwMap has the same issue, but the altitude data field from CIQ shows the altutude in meters correctly, so I think it should be possible to fix in future versions. Please let me know if there is an easier fix that I can do myself, thanks :)

I have tried to install this app, on to a vivoactive 4s but some has gone wrong, it is recorded as being installed on the connectIQ app, but as removed on the phone. I can't uninstall it using the app or install it properly my phone. I'd like the hike2 app to work or be able to remove it.

To find it, press the upper right button and you'll see a list of activities, tap the dots at the bottom and scroll down. You'll see this at the end of the list. There was also an issue with ciq apps and the 7.10 firmware. You may need to wait until you get 7.20
