The ideas are quite good to start with.
I always use the tack assist as a reference when dinghy sailing.
Accessing to any other data, even as basic as to know the time of the day is quite challenging without stoping the activity, so I ended up sacrificing one navigation data field to replace it by the time of the day.
It would be ABSOLUTELY GREAT if you would at least allow to create additional Data Screens as in most other Garmin applications. Should you do that you would probably get rid of 80% of the negative reviews you currently have on the App as people could configure it to display the data they want to have available during the activitiy.

Not that useful for racing can’t set option of large countdown for classes that dont let you ping startline

Almost impossible to figure out how to use. To bad because it has potential.

Do not download this application.
The application does not follow Garmin's normal user interface conventions, if there are any. You won't be able to exit the application if you start it. I guess there is an exit somewhere, it is just really difficult to find.
There is another Garmin application called "Boat". For some reason, that application stores speed information to Connect in knots, while this one stores speed as kilometers per hour, - An interesting choice there, as using knots seems to be possible.
To me, this kind of problems are a sign of fundamental issues. I wonder if Garmin takes software development seriously and whether it is a good idea to user their devices and software for navigation at seas.

Impossible de basculer sur les paramètres de navigation après avoir passé la ligne de départ. Pour arrêter la course il faut repasser par le menu et quitter !
Impossible de paramétrer en mile nautique et noeud!!! Le développeur n’a jamais mis les pieds sur un bateau !

This app has potential, sadly it’s impossible to evaluate all the data, which has been recorded during the activity within the app Garmin Connect. For example, a graph showing the elevation alongside the track does not really make sense for sailing. I would appreciate a speed graph instead.
Also the option to display the tack angle, which has been calculated by the tack assistant would be great to have as a data field.
Another annoying thing is, that the unit settings have to be set every time the app is started. When synching the activity to Garmin Connect, this settings seemed to get lost as well.

an app with great potential, but hastily developed.
- calculation of kcal totally wrong
- impossible to modify data fields, add others, modify them ... but why? What did it cost to dedicate a minimum of energy on this project?
There are those people who buy a garmin only for sailing applications ... spending more time in development would have been welcome.

Useless crap. Had to turn off the watch to be able to close it. Uninstalled.

Unbrauchbar, im Handbuch auch keine Hilfe von wegen Wassersport Uhr!!! Die Oberfläche und die Datenanzeige kann man auch nicht bearbeiten Ich hatte auch schon direkt bei Garming angefragt war auch eine Nullnummer

The racing timer itself is not bad but there are two key improvements it needs. Firstly, a rolling sequence, whereby once the first countdown is finished, a second countdown starts again. This is helpful for a number of sequential race starts. Secondly, it needs bigger digits and louder alarms as it enters the last minute.

Very difficult to use, non-comprensive, very hard to go back to menus, would be good if the user can set up the information needed in every screen. needs to be reengineered

Mange dårlige apps, Garmin burde teste apps langt bedre

Shockingly bad software. Unusable in a race situation. Hard to use, cannot step out of selections, cannot even exit from the app without restarting the device. How can a modern large company like Garmin market this to sell the watch? Gone back to using my $80 Ronstan watch for races

Cannot use waypoints for startling. Sometimes it is not possible to ping startline. People who wrote this do not understand yacht racing.

I agree with the other comments. An awful piece of software. Just cannot understand what the thinking behind some of the functions. For example why after count down does the watch not start recording race time? Also how do you stop the App once the race is finished ?

At least add more than two data fields!

Bizarre and inscrutable user interface, which has button behaviors that do not match the pattern established by other Activity apps. Super disappointing given that Garmin does well on other activities

For simple cruising functions, I have had no problems like the racers. I do take exception to the method of stopping and activity. Instead of using Start/Stop button, one must use the Up button to enter the app settings and then end the activity. Makes no sense. all other apps use the same button and this is difficult to actually perform when you are, maybe, trying to pick up a mooring or docking or anything requiring control of the boat.

App is full of bugs and mainly it records HR and tracking but there is no calorie output- always on 0!

system down for my fenix 3

Chi ha fatto questa app non sa cosa serve in regata.
Copiate il funzionamento del velocitek e non discostatevi dalle 5 funzionalità.

Not usable and unable to exit once launched without reboot. Why bother having such a poorly written app?
2019. svibnja 08 | Verzija 1.7
No way to clock the app.
The sync moves to 4 min or 1 min but stops the count dow

Not only is this extremely clunky, there doesn't appear to be a way out of the program without a reboot.

Absolutly agree with the most of reviewers. The only useful option of this watches - MOB button. SailRace mode is awful. As I see, here in reviews are all problems and advices what do the sailors need, but Garmin ignoring it for a long time.
Quatix 5 is positioned as a special tool for boating and sailing. I don't need golf in it, I don't need laps, I don't need a lot of multisport features. Give me big size start-timer, give me star-line from starboard to port, give me current boat-speed and timer. And do it in very very very simple form.
My smartphone can do it with the 10 dollars dry-pack
Guys from Garmin, is there anyone who realy sailing and racing in your company?
If I would have a little more brain and read all of this reviews before, I'll never buy Garmin products, because this brand ignoring their customers
