Hello...just started using the app, but enjoying it very much.  The only thing lacking from some other premium watches / apps is map view on the watch...Is there any plans to get the map view visable on a Samsung watch (Active2)?


Many thanks.

Hi Matej - thanks for asking. The answer remains the same as my previous reply. There are factors that have delayed the release of this feature. I don't have a timeline for you right now. 


Thomas - thanks for sharing your experience with the app. Hopefully it's helpful to other users.

You might want to check out 15th Club www.15club.golf. Theyhave a simple interface with a slick map view on the watch. I love golf pad but if you need to see the map I found this app is a good back up.

Hello Matej - thanks for checking in. Due to several factors, we will not be launching this in 2022. I'm not involved in all the intricacies of the development, so I can't speak to specifics. I do know it's in process and the team knows it's a popular request. They are working hard to bring this to fruition for everyone.

I have a feeling that this won't be happening soon. Distance to hazards has been a huge undertaking and demanded lots of human resources. That means that the development team focused on that and not on map view. Considering this task is also vast, its fullfilment will take time. Maybe some time next year would be my guess (and of course I sincerely hope I am wrong and the team will surprise me in a month :-)

Hi Cindy It's been over 2 years now and still no update on this. Between the aerial view on the watch not done yet and the app freezing on the watch, what updates are actually happening?

I agree! I saw the  Samsung Watch 4 with Golf Buddy and they have this exact feature. You do not have to pull out your phone to see the map with a range finder. I would really love this feature.
