Similar to PORR below, unable to get map after recording a hike. It used to work, but doesn't seem to in the recent versions. Attempted with 2.75 and after updating to 2.76.3 but no map attached.
I'm using Forerunner 245 with firmware 22.214.171.124 and Hike2+ app 2.76.3

Great, all the info I need, except it didn't track any map data. No route/map shown after I logged the activity. Neither in Gramin connect, nor after importing it to Strava. Not sure if it's an issue with my Vivoactive 4s, though...

What do you see in history on the device? Use contact developer and let me know what watch, FW etc.

Is there a GPS built in the app
if not I think you should add one.
25 Mac 2021, jim_m_58
It uses the GPS on the watch. On 3.2 devices, you can also set when GPS Constellations it uses.

This was the first app I searched for when I replaced my old vivoactive with the vivoactive 3. Easy and has everything I want.
08 Januari 2021 | Versi 2.75.8
unfortunately when this app do running I can not pay with VA3M. If I pay, app closed automatical at. I will happy, if you can fix it. Thank you!

You mean you can't use garmin pay?
It's best to use "contact developer" for things like this.
03 Januari 2021 | Versi 2.75.8
Fantastic! Shows everything you'd want.. works and paired easily with Garmin Vivoactive 3... Which, I also love.
22 November 2020 | Versi 2.75.7
Awesome app, heaps of useful detail and functions. Found the pause screen super easy to mistakenly restart/stop for some reason, but eventually realised that's easily avoided by going back into the app while paused. Thanks!

Please implement the metric system in the settings for the distances and altitudes
26 Oktober 2020, jim_m_58
That's determined by the units setting on the watch itself.
Both distance and elevation can be set for metric or statute.

I loved this app used it all over Colorado! But now a few months later it’s no longer working. Now whenever I try to use the app it won’t let me start the hike no matter how many times I delete the app and reinstall it or update it. Very disappointed
23 Oktober 2020, jim_m_58
Sounds like a problem with GPS. Can you get GPS with things like the native run app? What device do you have? Please use contact developer and provide some info.

Battery dies in exactly 5 hours- do I have something set wrong?
14 Oktober 2020, jim_m_58
If you press "menu" (a long press of the up button on non-touch watches) there is an option called "Save Battery". Set it to "yes". I slows down the screen updates to preserve battery. The battery life is very dependent on the specify device. Also if you bring a battery based charger with you, when you stop for a break, you can top off the battery in the watch by charging a few minutes here and there.

Had a hike today with Garmin 735xt and after sync the activity has not shown at Garmin Connect. Its visible at watch history but nothing more. Ive restart the watch and sync one more time, but still nothing.
09 Oktober 2020, jim_m_58
That process is handled by the watch firmware and Hike2 isn't involved.
29 September 2020 | Versi 2.75.3
great app. however I cannot change the elevation page to Meters instead of feet. is there any workaround?
29 September 2020, jim_m_58
On your watch , go to settings-system-units-elevation, and there you can choose feet or meters.
settings-system-units can be used for other things like distance units, speed/pace units, temperature units too.

In genwral has good detail pages. The lack of one summary pagevto include own choice means i wilk not use it. 1 page with hr, distance, time, elevation change is what i want i need. Such a shame all the hard work on this does not allow more fexibilily.
20 September 2020, jim_m_58
The details you want can be found in Garmin Connect.
19 September 2020 | Versi 2.75.3
Works excellent for my needs of tracking a hike. Exactly what I was looking for and I love the integration into the Connect app. Used with a Vivoactive 3.
14 September 2020 | Versi 2.75.3
Great app for hike. Forerunner 645 music doesn’t have that feature in the original activities but this works GREAT!
26 Ogos 2020 | Versi 2.75
Superb app for the Venu, which lack Hiking activity. The developer is super helpful. Thank you!
09 Ogos 2020 | Versi 2.73.3
Tracks well lots of info unfortunately altitude did not seem to be right, maybe had an offset as all my hikes are minus elevation on vivoactive 3
09 Ogos 2020, jim_m_58
It gets the elevation from the firmware and the firmware uses a baro altimeter (it's based on air pressue). There is a small air post on the back of the watch. Make sure that's not clogged.

Great functionality of the app overall. But limited usefulness because 1) on a long hike it's too easy to accidentally hit one of the buttons causing it to 'pause' your hike. I had this happen repeatedly, and the app has no way to change settings to lock it in and make this accidental pausing more difficult; and 2) it's a major drain on battery life. if you're going on a couple hours hike you may not care about this app, but if you're going on a longer one it will run your watch battery down too quickly. If these two issues were fixed it would be the perfect hiking app to me.
22 Jun 2020 | Versi 2.73.1
overall a good app but would be 5 Stars if it was a little bit of a cleaner look. However all the data is there it is just a lot of screens to swipe through. Took me some getting used to but overall the data that comes through and the integration with the connect app has been great
23 Jun 2020, jim_m_58
With app settings, you can turn off any screens you don't want to see.
19 Jun 2020 | Versi 2.73.1
This application not working on my Garmin Venu. When I turn on app "Hike2", I am waiting app, but I could just see on the screen: Waiting for GPS, GPS: None, "Menu" for startup options. This is freeze on my screen a few minutes. What should I do? Please, help me. Thanks.
19 Jun 2020, jim_m_58
Sounds like the watch is having a problem getting a GPS lock. Try something like the native "run" app and wait for GPS to go green. Also, in "About" on your watch, go to the last screen and make sure CPE says "current"
14 Jun 2020 | Versi 2.73.1
So far so good. Was sad the Vivoactive didn't offer a hiking activity. This solved my problem. It saves/records as hiking in Garmin Connect along with my other fitness tracking services like Runkeeper and Strava.
Thank you, good work.

My watch didn't have a built in hiking activity app so I tried a few and found this one to be best one. Connects to GPS without issues, easy to use, easy to customize, and collects tons of data.

nice app but not easy to figure out without a good MANUAL.
would be nice to have a guide to figure out something like how to upload tracks or maps that can be used for hiking. help?
18 Januari 2020, jim_m_58
You can't upload tracks or maps. It just records the activity. There's really not a lot as you start a recording, pause a recording, save/discard a recording were you can mark waypoints with the back button (same as laps in native apps)
