Great hiking app I highly recommend!

28 de diciembre de 2022 | Versión 2.77.4

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 :)

This is a great hiking app with an awesome battery saver option. Can you please design a open water swimming app as well so I dont have to keep recording my swims as walks and then editing after. Thanks.

I think there are some open water swim apps in the app store. I live in the desert so no real chance to test open water swimming! :)

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

This isn't an issue with the app. The 7.10 FW for the va4/4s/Venu has a number of issues and it's been pulled back by Garmin.

What firmware version are you using? You have WHR enabled? Has it worked in the past? Are the green lights on the back on solid if you peek under the watch? Please use "Contact developer" with this info.

13 de agosto de 2022 | Versión 2.77.0

It's way better than the Garmin official hike app

I have installed this app on my vivoactive 4s for a hiking activity. It was a 16km hike in total and I had it on for 6 hours (including pausing for breaks and stops). It worked so well and the battery didn't drain any faster/more than walking activity. So it is 5 stars from me!

9 de agosto de 2022 | Versión 2.77.0

I got this app because I was hoping for something that could specifically track a hike and save a little battery on my Vivoactive 3. I've used it for a few hikes now. I don't think it helps extend battery compared to just using the Walk activity but it definitely doesn't use up battery any faster. I appreciate the black screen and the sheer amount of info available on the watchface. I didn't realize just how useful this app was until the 2nd time using it. And I've discovered something new about it with each use! This app has many screens filled with useful info. Weather conditions, a little map of the route, coordinates, compass, much! You can set waypoints and it notifies you when you're getting close to returning to your starting point. So, even if the battery isn't saving much, I think it's a great trade off!

Respuesta del desarrollador

The battery will be in the same range as the native walking app, as they both use a big consumer of battery - GPS. With this app the is an option to "save battery" when the screen doesn't update as often. If it's still an issue, bring your cable and a battery based phone charger, and when you stop for a break, pause the recording, take the watch off and plug in the charger. Even 10 minutes can help.

Tracked my hike nearly 2 miles too short, and drained my battery nearly 60% while doing so.

Respuesta del desarrollador
25 de junio de 2022, jim_m_58

If the track being short, that's an issue with the watch itself, possible with how good GPS is in the area you were hiking. As far as battery drain, 60% can happen based on which watch and how long you were recording. There's also a setting in the app for "save battery", which limits how often the screen updates. This gets back to which watch you have, and without knowing that, there isn't much I can do. Use "Contact developer" to tell me which watch, how long you were recording, and how good GPS was where you were. There is a screen for that in the app.

I installed this app because I joined a Garmin hiking challenge and there was no hiking activity available at my Garmin VivoActive 4 watch which I find rather strange. Anyway with this app the hiking time was added to my hiking challenge. So far I did not notice any strange behavior or battery drain. But I wonder how I can make it auto-pause when I temporarily stop walking during my hike. This can be set up with the walking activity.

Respuesta del desarrollador
12 de junio de 2022, jim_m_58

There is no auto pause in this app. I tried a few things years back and it paused too often if you were just in an area where you were moving slow, and adding a time resulted in "pausing" during that time still occurred, On the va4, pausing is a simple press of the upper button and only happens when you want it.

10 de junio de 2022 | Versión 2.77.0

Drained battery from 100% to 10 in 15 hours of NOT using the app. I guess the app was hang in the background. How can you kill the app or at least ensure it’s not running?

Respuesta del desarrollador
10 de junio de 2022, jim_m_58

That's not bad depending on the watch. 15 hours of GPS will drain many watches. If you press menu in the app, there is a setting for "Save battery" which reduces screen updates while the app is running, which can help.

I have a Garmin forerunner 55 and was hoping to use this to show me the data of the route I had taken but I have no data of the route on the map. Have I missed something or is that not the whole point of having a Hiking app?

Respuesta del desarrollador
28 de mayo de 2022, jim_m_58

You should see it while you are hiking on the chart/breadcrumb screen. If you are not seeing it in Garmin Connect but see it in the app, that is a Garmin problem and nothing is wrong with this app. Garmin should get a 1 star review and not this app! :)

22 de mayo de 2022 | Versión 2.77.0

I tried it, but it is not as easy to handle and overview as the factory made walking app. Sorry but uninstalling.

Respuesta del desarrollador

Not sure what you mean. up/down move between screens just like the native app, "start" works the same way, and you get a similar resume/save/discard menu

Absolutely drained my battery, watch was fully charged and after 6 hours was down to 12%. It also decided to end the tracking by itself mid hike, so I ended up getting only a fraction of my walk recorded.

Respuesta del desarrollador
14 de mayo de 2022, jim_m_58

Before you start recording, press menu, and one of the options is "save battery". Not sure how long your walk is, but even with "save battery" off, the battery should last hours. You can also set a level in app settings to be notified when the battery level gets low. You can also "charge on the go" and top off the battery when stopping for a break.

Is it only my issue on Forerunner 55 or it doesn't track the meters of going up done during the hike? For a hiking app I would expect it.

Respuesta del desarrollador

The fr55 doesn't have a baro altimeter. You should see this data when you sync to Garmin Connect where elevation correction is applied.

It's only available in English. No need for a bad review.

25 de marzo de 2022 | Versión 2.77.0

Looks simple but is filled with so much data, everything you will need for your hikes. The only thing I would have liked to see was the option to move to other apps while this one ran in the background.
