Works much better than the standard gradient field. Still some delay, but much reduced. I used the faster response time set-up using garmin connect app. Thanks for offering this.

Tested on Edge 520 Plus and not satisfied with the app. I used older barometric computer that provides good enough grade values as a reference. I noticed data field value jumps rapidly often, sometimes it displays almost twice grade percentage as it really is. Also response is very slow. I don't recommend this app.

Basically, what the data field does is collect values for elevation and speed and filter them. You can try to adjust the filter to achieve more smooting in the settings. However, if your older computer gives truly better readings, it most likely has better sensors built-in.
A big advantage is a dedicated bike speed sensor. If you rely on GPS speed, gradient values will be very jumpy, because GPS speed is very jumpy...

One of the only actually useful things in the connect IQ store

Sorry, but on my edge 130 this field does'nt fit in the smallest data layout... so us pretty invisible.

Tested it today and was very happy! The Garmin installed VAM and grades are too unreliable, together with VAM (by same developper) I use it to pace my rides on hill climbs with more than 5% gradient. Great job and thumbs up to the developper!

Downloaded it today and took it for a ride using the default 3s smoothing. It worked great! A little bit of lag in the readout of display, but the results were right on par with where the should be-great job! I'm trying out the 1s smoothing next, just out of curiousity, since we have a lot of shorter rollers where I ride. Definitely recommend the app.

Thanks. The smoothing value is actually a response time vs. accuracy trade off. The sensor resolution is limited, thus the lag is the time required to measure a meaningful air pressure and altitude difference.
