Great app, I used it for a hike this past weekend. Very grateful for your support, Jim!

Simple, does what it's supposed to. I'm using it on Forerunner 235

Hi there how can i turn on my GPS on my fr 235 it shows that the GPS is off please help !!

Hike turns on GPS and in fact waits for a valid GPS fix. If that seems to be taking a long time, get a GPS fix with something like the "run" activity first, as it shows more about the progress of getting a fix. If that doesn't help, power cycle the watch and try again.

This is fantastic so far. No idea what some of the data is though lol.I'm sure there is a guide somewhere?
I wish all info went through the Garmin workout summery. Even number of steps don't go through (they are added to your daily total though). Obviously this is a limitation of Garmin, not the app

Sorry, but no guide anywhere! If you have a question, just use "Contact Developer" on the right side of this screen.

I used it on my Forerunner 235. Works ok but it doesn't count the steps properly which is rather disappointing.
Utorok, 2018, júna 12, jim_m_58
Step counting is a function of the firmware itself, and I simply display what the firmware reports. Are you using walking poles by any chance? That can impact the steps the firmware sees.

Отличное приложение для хайкинга. Записывает всё корректно, в приложении можно посмотреть прошедший путь, поставить флажок, доступно очень много информации. В общем всем советую, единственное, вроде как нет автопаузы.

Excelente. A caminar!
Pondelok, 2017, septembra 11 | Verzia 0.15b
I really like this app, especially the hike to walk feature and use it often. Any chance you would be up for making a hike to trail run feature?
Utorok, 2017, septembra 12, jim_m_58
In Hike, I don't have any available memory, so no new features can be added to it.
Pondelok, 2017, augusta 14 | Verzia 0.15b
First of all, thanks for the app! It is really nice and useful! But I miss an option that, once you finish tracking a route, allows you to go back following the previously saved route. I'm pretty sure that this optinos is not available in the currente version of this app but is there another app supporting such a funcionality? or will you plan to add this option in a future release?

Just used the app with fr 235 for tracking hikes in the Alps. Once downloaded its very easy to use and provides lots of useful information.

My first 'outing' for my Forerunner 235 was a hike along the Wicklow way. It was class. Lasted for the full duration and the rest of the evening... and we were hiking for 5.5hrs! Love this app, does everything you want. :-) Well done Jim, you have a fan here. :-)
Štvrtok, 2017, mája 25 | Verzia 0.15b
Really love your app, two things to mention:
During my last Hike, the App crashed after half an hour. The screen then just showed the normal Garmin vivoactive walking app. The data was correkt there, time, heart rate and walkin time, pace and distance.
To start the hike app again i had to stop the walk and start your app again...
second is, that in the autolap function it always shows, for example after one KM still i had done one MILE. The counting is correct, but the shown units are wrong...

Applicazione ben fatta. La uso con Garmin Vivoactive. All'apertura dell'App chiede subito il collegamento del Gps che nel mio Vivoactive è quasi immediato. Hike ti segue nel percorso. Per il momento ho avuto modo di provarlo solo nelle passeggiate in paese. Tiene traccia del punto di partenza e quando si ritorna alla partenza,l'orologio vibra. Lo sbaglio della home è di massimo tre metri.
Il percorso viene poi caricato Sul Garmin Connect e oltre alla durata,velocità, distanza percorsa,ti mostra anche il tragitto sulla mappa. Devo dire che è molto preciso il tracciamento. Nessun problema di perdita segnale gps anche se passo sotto portici o vicino a Palazzi alti.

Really like this app. Easy to use and adjust settings. Data transfers to Garmin Connect ok and as a Forerunner 235 user the app fills a gap with a lack of profile on FR235. I use it for walking but can see utility of hiking function.
Developer is very responsive
Nedeľa, 2016, decembra 25 | Verzia 0.15b
This app would be perfect if it didn't drain the battery so quickly. I'm getting about 6 hours of tracking on my vivoactive. It would be nice if there was a way to adjust the frequency at which data points are taken, in order to conserve energy.
Sobota, 2016, decembra 31, jim_m_58
It's actually not how often the data points are saved, but it's just GPS in general. The "chart screen" does a lot of drawing, so you don't want to stay on that screen all the time if you want to preserve battery. Also, with the vivoactive, if you set the USB mode to "Garmin", you can bring your charging cable and something like a battery based cell phone charger, you can charge the va while Hike is still running, when you stop for a break (maybe every couple of hours). I've done this in testing and stopped the test after 20 hours, and the battery was still 75% full.
Nedeľa, 2016, decembra 18 | Verzia 0.15b
Tried it during my hikes in the alps this summer. Great App BUT it´s still taking to much energy. Battery was drained before we could finish our 5-8 hour hikes. Didn´t test the new version, though. So I hope you can do something about the drain (then I will surely give 5/5 on my next review)
Pondelok, 2016, novembra 14 | Verzia 0.15b
Brilliant app. I use it pretty much every day to track my long dog walks!
Pondelok, 2016, októbra 17 | Verzia 0.15.1
This app used to be great. Lately it makes my Forerunner 630 restart whenever I start recording.
Utorok, 2016, októbra 18, jim_m_58
Sound like something with your 630. Try a full power off (hold the light button until the watch shuts itself down). Also try connecting to Garmin Express just to make sure you have all the driver updates in addition to the latest firmware. Also try uninstalling Hike, power cycling your watch, and re-installing.

Brilliant addition to my 235. Great Hiking/Walking App - very useful and superb plot tracker which came in very handy today retracing my steps back through marshland in the Western Isles. One of the best apps I've seen.
Utorok, 2016, augusta 23 | Verzia 0.15.1
This is really a good app!
I was hesitant to try it at first.
I was initially wondering: what's the purpose, since there is already a walking app.
Then I thought that the font would be too small to be read while walking.
Finally I tried it and I like it.
It has a lot more information than the provided walking app on multiple screens.
When walking, compared to running, you can focus more easily on the watch, and the small font is readable.
Nedeľa, 2016, augusta 14 | Verzia 0.15.1
Very useful app for hiking, especially since this activity is missing on Garmin 235. I hope that a long-term development of the app is ensured.
Sobota, 2016, augusta 13 | Verzia 0.15.1
Great App. What I would like to be added is the ascent/descent value in m/min. This helps when slope become more or less steep to maintain the right cadence
Pondelok, 2016, augusta 1 | Verzia 0.14k
I would like to have the option to set the pace, so that the app can record intermediate times, eg per 1km or per 2km.
