Re: How do I locate the "map" feature on Gear Fit2

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I have done whatever was said to get the map but still can't find it. switched on the location (GPS) from settings and from the exercise. i did set the target then completed it but after completing viewed the log and scrolled down but couldn't find the map. I think I did a very big mistake by buying the GF2.I got attracted by its GPS feature and decided to buy it.

totally disappointed by Samsung.😔

HELP ME!

@userUYCKznj5M4: Just to confirm, on your mobile phone if you go to Settings> Apps> Samsung Gear> Permissions do you have location enabled?

I’m sorry, but my map is not there. I have owned the gear fit 2 over a year now, and still can’t find the map. This was the main reason I bought this tracker. My map is not below the logs; there’s nothing.

userUYCKznj5M4 just to confirm, are the Location settings enabled? Can you also provide the exact model code of the watch?

This is not a valid solution for me. With location on, maps quit working on my downloaded run. It doesn't appear on the watch nor the phone.

The map has only registered twice on my GF2P out of 10 walking sessions. Location is turned on. My sessions record speed/pace, distance walked while gaining/losing elevation (called total ascent and descent when recorded to Samsung Health app), but no map - except for the two times. Since speed and elevation change are recorded I have to assume the GPS is working. I have made sure that location is turned on in GF2P. (Model No. SM-R365,  Software R365XXU2CRC7,  Serial No. RSAJB0EBE3R)

 

Two images are attached from the Samsung Health app of walking sessions on successive days. One with a map and an elevation graph and the other without either. As both show, the data is from the GF2P. I'm sending the Health app screenshots because they are easy to capture on the Samsung phone. The workout screens on the GF2P reflect the maps shown on the Health app.

 

Of the two times the map is present, only one shows a graph of elevation included with the graphs of speed and heart rate. I live in Northern Vermont so elevation gain/loss is a way of life in workouts.  I am quite disappointed that the elevation information along with the map of the route is so sporadically recorded.

 

What may be causing the loss of information, besides a poor GPS in the watch?Map & Elev.jpgMapless.jpg
