I really enjoy your app, is very good and useful. Next year, I will go to dwmap premium certainly.

9 November 2017 | Version V2.2.0030

nice app for the watch,it will be better to develop an app for Android and iOS,used to plan route to the watch

Thanks for the feedback andy, although we have found that most users are very happy using the mobile-optimized website for route planning and management on their phone.

It’s a good app but is it possible to get my money back because I don’t actually need the premium ?

We offer a 100% refund guarantee on Premium -- just email us at

Great app! No more carrying printed maps or carrying my Garmin Dakota on unknown running trails. This app is also capable to replace my Dakota on most (shorter) bike rides. Boosts my vivoactive 3 to a new level and - for me - makes it equal to a fenix. And simpleness of track management is much better than Garmin's native one with Garmin Connect...

Great app for Fenix 3. Easy to stay on course. Like the upcoming turn feature. Excellent tech support too

29 October 2017 | Version V2.2.0030

Best Garmin Connect ever!! It simply made my $200 FR230 become a super watch! Interface is slick and gives you exactly what you need and the online service complements it perfectly. And the support is stellar. Friendly and faster than Flash Gordon ;) Thank you for this amazing App!

25 October 2017 | Version V2.2.0030

I had a bit of a trouble downloading the map on my watch but with excellent support I made it... Just had to restart my watch Fenix 3. Very easy to create a route.

24 October 2017 | Version V2.2.0030

great app adding lots of functions to my Fenix 3! so good to be able to feel that you will not get lost before going out for a run! my dream app would add some more workout-related features, but seems the hardware is limiting that... anyway, I recommend this app to anyone wants the convenience of creating routes in a super easy way and then transmitting them seamlessly to the watch.

22 October 2017 | Version V2.2.0030

Great and easy to use but is a tiny bit laggy on my vivoactive

Hi felog11, we actually use the original Vivoactive as our main test watch (and my personal everyday watch), as it appears to be the base model in terms of performance. So, yes it can sometime be a little slow, but we have done our best to make the experience as good as possible on that watch.

19 October 2017 | Version V2.2.0030

Excelente App para Fenix 5 Cordoba Argentina

19 October 2017 | Version V2.2.0030

I had some problems connecting my Garmin account with dwmap but the great support helped me out very well. I'm happy with the functionality and plan to upgrade to premium.

17 October 2017 | Version V2.2.0030

Fantastic, upgraded to the premium version for the personalised data screens and am very happy with the result. Emailed the developer and he responded within the hour, can's ask for better service than that.

12 October 2017 | Version V2.2.0030

Sowohl die App als auch der Support ist absolut TOP

11 October 2017 | Version V2.2.0030

Nice app, simple to use. I have one issue though. I am puzzled that no one else is complaining on this one. On my FR 235 I am getting OnRoute OffRoute messages couple of times each and every minute of my ride and to be quite honest it is quite annoying. It's a single track route so I am either on route or off route ... Is there any option to decrease sensibility so I don't get this many messages. It draines battery and my sanity ...

milanu69, we did increase the threshold for this in recent release that just came out yesterday, so maybe worth seeing how that is for you now? Otherwise, please contact us at and we'd be delighted to help you troubleshoot your issue.

El error 1 o 2 significa que su dispositivo Garmin no pudo contactar con nuestro servidor web a través de su teléfono. Compruebe lo siguiente: - su teléfono o tablet debe ser un Android o iPhone. Windows Phone no funcionará, ya que Garmin Connect Mobile para ese teléfono no implementa correctamente los servicios de datos necesarios para las aplicaciones de Garmin. - su Garmin debe estar conectado a su teléfono o tablet mediante Bluetooth. WiFi o un cable no funcionará. - su teléfono debe estar funcionando con Garmin Connect Mobile, y su Garmin debe estar configurado en él.

Hasta hace poco me iba muy bien, pero ahora cuando descargo una ruta no me deja abrirla y me sale el logo de IQ. Si alguien me puede ayudar a solucionarlo se lo agradecería.

Póngase en contacto con nosotros en y estaremos encantados de ayudarle a solucionar su problema. Esto suena como un problema con la versión para Android de Garmin Connect Mobile que se produjo a principios de septiembre, aunque Garmin lo arregló, por lo que si tienes un teléfono Android, comprueba que esté actualizado.

Fantastic app on my Forerunner 235. Makes the watch way more useful.

29 September 2017 | Version V2.2.0029

Great app, adds awesome functionality to the Vivoactive HR. Developer is terrific and responds to questions quickly.

Is there any French users? I'm trying to use it. It seems easy but I don't know how to use it ? Many Thank's for your help.

Yes we have a great many users in France and other non-English counties. The app itself only has English labels but is easy to use, but our Help pages include the Google Translate widget to assist: We also have German, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Japanese user-contributed guides and videos:

Simply great!

22 September 2017 | Version V2.2.0029

I upgraded from Vivoactive HR to the new Vivoactive 3, can you please make it compatible with the Vivoactive 3... Great app!

Glad you like the app! We already have tested dwMap on the Vivoactive 3 and will be releasing an update with support for it shortly. Please contact us at if you have any further questions (we might not spot a tech support question within a review here for few days, but we respond very promptly to emails).

Even though the map on the watch only displays the route you created, it does everything I need it to do; keeps me from getting lost! This app has made it immensely easier to explore new bike routes. And it is incredibly easy to use their map making tool on a smartphone. As long as you choose the right activity when you're making the app, the garmin activity will start as soon as you open the dwmap app. Only issue is that I wish zoom levels were changed by double-tapping rather than finger swipe... Hard to do that on the move.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
