The app is good during a hike, but I wish there were instructions somewhere. The link regarding basic functionality is dead. I see no way to look at the data once it is saved. On my last hike, after reaching…
What watch do you have? You need to get a GPS fix with Hike2 before you can start recording. Make sure you are outside in clear sky, and on many watches, if you go to "about" you'll see either SPE or EPO…
Ditto jim_m_58. Key words wait outside. As I gather stuff inside I start app. I go outside to adjust my gear. As I wait for watch to vibrate. I press the start button on my v4. Don’t even look at the screen any more at the start.
Looking forward to trying this over the weekend.

Installed this on my Vivioactive 4 on which, remarkably, Garmin did not include a hiking app, closest was the Walk app which I had been using. This App is great, BUT I can only give it 3 stars because I cannot customize the setting (by clicking on the three dots). I tried to eliminate the many fields that I do not use and change a couple of other settings. When I tried to Save these settings, I repeatedly got a message, "cannot save at this time." I tried this several times w/o success. I would rate this App five stars if this is fixed and buy the developer "a cold drink" or two. Help!!
UPDATE: I was able to save the settings with the Garmin App on my phone. Would not work on my Apple desktop. Up the rating to 4.5 stars. Would be 5 stars with a "return to start" function (arrow and distance) as on the "Walk" Garmin app on the watch.
