I used your App Hike 2 since I bought my first Garmin vivoactive HR and it ran pefectly. It was my most used app on this watch. Then I bought the successor model vivoactive 4 but most of the time it does´t start because I can´t get a GPS signal. I don´t know why our app struggles with the gps signal. The Garmin preinstalled app "running" gets the signal. I still have the old garmin vivoactive Hr. If i start both watches at the same time, the vivoactive Hr starts in a couple of minutes , but the vivactive 4 not even in 15 min. :-( I´m really disappointed about this behavior because I really miss your app on this watch. I guess that the internal antenna of vivoactive may be not as good as the one of vivoactive HR.

Make sure you are outside under open sky, and that your "CPE" is current (it's under "about" on the watch). There's a different GPS chipset in the va4 vs the VAHR.

I've just used the app for the first time on a five-mile walk, and I'm impressed right off the bat with its low power consumption and the tremendous amount of information at my fingertips. Yes, it can take a minute to lock onto a GPS signal (I was in a small valley sheltered by the tree canopy), but give it time and it will find the GPS signal if there's one to be had. Some of us in North America may have better luck changing the watch settings to GPS + GALILEO if the default GPS + GLONASS isn't delivering good results; but these are settings on the watch, not in the app. I really like the way the screens are organized, and the extraordinary variety of information available. It's a great app. The developer should be proud.

Thanks! Something about GPS. Most native apps do two things I don't.
1) GPS goes green when there is a 2d fix (lat/lon) and it may take another 30 seconds to get a 3d fix (lat/lon/elevation). I wait for a 3d fix
2) Many apps allow users to start recording before a GPS fix, which can lead to some odd data, as the device is still trying to get a fix while the user is moving. That's why you can't start this app until there is a 3d fix.

Awesome app for hiking!

Doesnt work it just stood stuck on waiting for gps gps q: none "menu" for startup options.
25 września 2021, jim_m_58
Were you outside under open sky? How long did you wait? Which device are you using? Please use "Contact developer" to supply the info.

Just what I needed to record my hikes.
7 września 2021 | Wersja 2.76.4
Installed on a Forerunner 735XT. Ran fine, but the data fields are very tiny and difficult to read, especially in the dark while speed walking, since the background is black, and the contrast is not very good. Also, the app (not the watch settings) shows speed - miles per hour, not pace - minutes per mile, which I find useless unless on a bike or in the car. I deleted the app in favor of another that shows pace - minutes per mile - and is easier to read.

Long press the middle left button and you can switch backgrounds between bloack and white.
It does show both pace and speed, in fact on the same screen. The system setting applies to both. .
I don't usually "hike" on a bike or in a car :)

Very good app, I have been hiking last you months and really enjoy this app. It gives me a lot of good information. I am still discovering more features every time I hike. I will shocked to see that some people are complaining that it is a battery hog, I went for an 11 hour hike and Battery lasted me through the hike and a bit afterwards. Thank you developer.

No "resume later" option so you can exit the app and resume the gps connection later. In case you are making a pit stop on the way... this would save a lot of battery.

That is not possible with any CIQ device apps.

Excellent app. Works great on my Venu 2.
25 lipca 2021 | Wersja 2.76.4
I like this app a lot. Would like to see heart rate added to the user defined screen so that I could see distance, elevation and heart rate on the same screen
19 lipca 2021 | Wersja 2.76.4
Love the hiking activity. Can save it to all trails app. Gives great info. Can you make it a hiking activity only to show how much you hikr. All the hikes show as wLks
29 czerwca 2021 | Wersja 2.76.4
Decent app... gpx file can be uploaded from Garmin connect web (not app)... Still a battery hog for my Vivoactive 3 - will run out after 4-5 hours despite all precautions i can take. Save battery function does not exist for Vivoactive 3... Also steps measurement under counts massively compared to the running or waking apps (about 40% less)
29 czerwca 2021, jim_m_58
Step count will be off if you use something like a walking stick or hiking pole. It's teh firmware that counts the steps, not this app. Also, there's a menu you see by pressing the screen on the va3 while the app is running, and one of the options there is "Save Battery". It's specific to this app.
16 czerwca 2021 | Wersja 2.76.4
Can we export recorded route a gpx file? How?
17 czerwca 2021, jim_m_58
I think you can with the Garmin Connect Website, and the activity, but not tried it myself.
13 czerwca 2021 | Wersja 2.76.4
App fails to turn....very poor app.
13 czerwca 2021, jim_m_58
What do you mean "turn"?
For things like this use "contact developer" so I can see what device you have and help you out.
Is it that it's waiting for a GPS lock? In that case, make sure you are outside under open sky, and make sure you can get a lock with something like the run activity.

Same as Enterprised1 and PORR reviews, i was unable to get map after recording nor follow an uploaded track. I am using forerunner 245 Music with firmware 7.10 and Hike2+ app 2.76
13 maja 2021 | Wersja 2.76.3
The best. Thanks a lot!
13 maja 2021, jim_m_58
Glad you like it!

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...
5 kwietnia 2021, jim_m_58
What do you see in history on the device? Use contact developer and let me know what watch, FW etc.
24 marca 2021 | Wersja 2.76.2
Is there a GPS built in the app
if not I think you should add one.
25 marca 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.
8 stycznia 2021 | Wersja 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!
8 stycznia 2021, jim_m_58
You mean you can't use garmin pay?
It's best to use "contact developer" for things like this.
3 stycznia 2021 | Wersja 2.75.8
Fantastic! Shows everything you'd want.. works and paired easily with Garmin Vivoactive 3... Which, I also love.
22 listopada 2020 | Wersja 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!
26 października 2020 | Wersja 2.75.7
Please implement the metric system in the settings for the distances and altitudes
26 października 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.
23 października 2020 | Wersja 2.75.6
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 października 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.
