Very useful Data Field. Unfortunately the words get cut off in most screen layouts. This does not look nice, please fix.

Thanks a lot for this simple but very good App. I like to use it every time i am on hiking on my fenix3. Could you please check if you can make it possible that the App works with black and white Background color. I like the black Background, but so i have black character on black Background.

I travel a lot and run in new cities all the time. This data field is great for me. Now I just go out and I can always check how far my hotel is and in which direction. This is a must have for travellers.

Seems to display an arrow pointing in the right direction ok on my vivoactive, but the text is the same colour as the background screen and so the distance is illegible. Unfortunately, this makes the displayed info less than useful.

Working as intended on epix. Very useful.

Without a black background, I can't see the digits for the distance, onlusten the arrow is usefull.

3 de Abril de 2015 | Versão 20150325

Much improved. The arrow is great. But before I start the activity it shows distance as a very large number. Shouldn't it be zero?

Distance is wrong

I'm an open water swimmer and I think this application is great. I like knowing how far I am from getting back home so I can make sure that I have gone a certain distance for the swim. It also helps if I'm running out of energy and want to make sure I have enough in the "bank" to get back in. The little arrow is nice too. I can see that it's going to be helpful if I'm out in the water and the fog rolls in. Highly recommend.

The distance is given only in M. Which assume is meters? It should adjust to the users setting for miles or kms. After more than 1000 meters it displays something like 1.2 M which again looks like miles but it should read KM! The direction value should change if I move around so that when i point directly at the start it would say 0. It doesn't change at all when I turn around. so what is the point of this? I agree with the other reviewer that an arrow would make a lot more sense.

Tried this one today. It's a good idea to have the "Back to Start" feature available as a data field.The distance seemed correct but on a 4 data field screen found the text very small and the bearing hard to see. When running I find an arrow a lot easier for a quick look. Is that possible? Also when you are not doing a run the distance given is a very large "arbitrary" value. Can a "better" value be given here.
