Works decently with my Bivystick. Could use some improvements. Wish that it displayed more clearly the battery status of my Bivystick (current charge percentage, whether it is being charged when plugged in, etc.). I also wish it would display more clearly the satellite connection status. It's often difficult to tell whether or not it has a good signal. Lastly, the messaging section feels pretty clunky. I often have to back out of a conversation to actually see that I've gotten a response.

I love bivy and the app does have a lot of useful info about trails/adventures displayed in a easy format. I like the recording features that show your distance and speed and it is a easy format to read. Over all it has worked for me and I look forward to more data being included in the future. Their customer service is exceptional too.

The tracking is buggy. Out of six tracks that I have attempted, only three have succeeded. The app has crashed a number of times which interrupted the track. Part of the problem is the continual notifications that the Internet is not available. Duh! Where did they think we were going to use the app? Downtown?
