Ergfex user reviews :
Loved it at first but now i paid for pro and tracking doesn’t work properly anymore, regardless if my screen is on or off. I’m really disappointed that the free version almost worked better with it’s limitations Edit: tehy fixed the problem, then it worked well for a month and now I still have problems being tracked when my phone screen is off..
- Hi Clara, danke für Deine Nachricht! Bitte melde Dich mit einer kurzen E-Mail unter app[at]bergfex.at und wir schauen uns das Problem genauer an. Gerne kannst Du uns auch direkt die Log-Files der App mit senden. (Einstellungen -> über bergfex/Touren -> Logs senden (2x antippen)). Viele Grüße, Team bergfex
Theoretically I like the app and it’s features very much. In the past I used the free version and was very happy with it. Now the zoom level is to low if you don’t pay. I paid for the yearly subscription and hoped, some of the bugs would be gone… There are not. Very often the map freezes or the back button just closes the whole app. I hope it doesn’t fail us during a trip on top of a mountain…
- Hallo Benjamin! Wir haben unsere App laufend weiterentwickelt und die von Dir angesprochenen Probleme treten in der aktuellen Version nicht mehr auf. Wir würden uns freuen, wenn Du bergfex nochmals eine Chance gibst und die App testest! Solltest Du Fragen haben, melde Dich jederzeit gerne unter email@example.com. Viele Grüße, Team bergfex
A very good app, with possibility the best maps I’ve encountered so far (clean, crisp, graphically pleasing, with near 3D feel). Altitude data most accurate of all navigation apps I’ve tried. Works great with Garmin, not sure about other brands. The only thing that bothers me is the occasional mix of German and English language, but let’s hope the developers will eventually work out this glitch.
- Hallo Andrej, danke für das äußerst positive Feedback – es freut uns sehr, dass Dir die App so gut gefällt! Bezüglich der unterschiedlichen Sprachen: Kannst Du Dich hierzu vielleicht unter app[at]bergfex.at melden und uns mitteilen, wo genau dieses Problem auftritt? Gerne würden wir uns das näher ansehen. Danke und viele Grüße, Team bergfex
