Great app, with many useful functionalities but without bloat. Highly recommended!

This app shows great potential. However I have not been able to work out how to record course marks or set them as waypoints. The navigation page could be improved by providing the name of the waypoint it is set to. Don’t need both ETA and ETE so one could be ditched to include POI name. A visible indicator that the course is being recorded would help. Very easy to think you’ve set it on when it isn’t. Keep up the good work. If the issues are fixed and it becomes simpler to use whilst sailing fast around a course and operated with gloved hands in a cloud of spray, then this one app could prove to be the saviour of the Quatix undelivered offering.

"The course for the next point already exists." Yes, but I wanted to say from next waypoint to the following and the entry of wind in that course, then you can predict the sails and where to put them, port or starboard. Its just a suggestion.

Last version works fine!!
It would be great if the app could saw the bearing of the next leg and the wind entry (to predict the next sails)
The course for the next point already exists.

Looks promising but I can't use it on my Fenix 5.
1) I cannot create a waypoint (the main reason why I want to use this app), pressing 'select' on the "Saved Points/New Point" menu sends me to the standard "History and settings" options of the Fenix 5.
2) Would be nice if the start/stop of the tracking was directly from the start button instead of a submenu (press once to start the app, subsequent times to start/stop tracking with a big on screen go or stop indicator flashing like the running app or most other tracking app).
I kitesurf and fumbling with sub-menus while holding a kite bar isn't very convenient.
I hope those are resolved as this is a promising app.
Before you lower the rating, read the documentation. My friend the kayter successfully uses for races.

I almost understand the app, I know how to create a waypoint in a route, but i don't know how to save it for use it later. I have a garmin fénix 5x. thank you

Does not work on Garmin Fenix 3 HR. Only shows "IQ!" when trying to start this app. The functions look interesting though, I must deinstalled the App.
I Hope to try in a few time.
Fixed in 3.0.2 version

Great app! probably the best amongst app for yachting. using it for cat racing. would love to see this one being actively developed or released on github for others to improve

Does not work on Garmin Fenix 3 HR with Firmware Version 4.30. Only shows "IQ!" when trying to start this app.
The functions look interesting though, I have deinstalled the App and will take another look in a few months.
Fixed in 3.0.2 version

Very, very good app. Works well, looks great, presents useful info in a useful way.
But -- it's ever so slightly disappointing, in that it's on the verge of being utterly brilliant and not quite there. It needs to be able to read real, live boat data (like the Garmin Boat Data app does) instead of manually inputting wind direction (which of course changes continuously so it's slightly wrong as soon as you've put it in). Come to think of it, could also read the GPS position from the boat data, and save using the internal GPS so the battery lasts much longer.
PS And why isn't the Garmin Quatix on the list of compatible devices? Surely the target users of this app are pretty likely to have one of those ?
I would really like to realize the receipt of NMEA by WiFi, but Garmin API does not allow this! It does not have a full TCP/IP. I'm currently working on a version for Samsung Gear S3 - there will be reading all the available information on the NMEA.

Not working, get IQ! message on watch.

A good app in principal, but let down by an arrogant admission that the Connect IQ instructions are 'just enough'. They're not, and I'd appreciate if you could reply to my second request for a more user friendly guide.

Would be awesome if it could record as an activity!

I think this app really has potential and will benefit from an enriched description of the features and settings, e.g., wind, tack, and how to use them. Thanks.
Thanks for your feedback!
The angle of the tack is not used (yet!) In the future it will be necessary to alert about the change of tack (; Wind direction can be specified for a long time holding the Start button on the VMG or Tack page.
Soon a new version with points list and "go to" function.
