Funciona molt bé en l'Epix , però només per enviar WP, no sé enviar una ruta sencera important-la d'un GPX. Sinó donaria les 5 estrelles

Hello Albert. Thx. I target to use the garmin features on the devices to use the full mapping from osm. Route transfer needs support that is only provided by the new Connect IQ 2.x devices (e.g. fenix5). Sorry

Works really well for Single waypoints. Will it be possible to import a complete track on a fenix 3 hr in future? This would make the app perfect.

Hi Daniel, Fenix 3 track upload. Garmin did not help to support this feature on first generation IQ devices. You have to use an usb cable or another app that is a workarround for me because it then doesnt use the garmin mapping features.

Installed both Apps (Android & Garmin) easily then imported a GPX File with Waypoints inside (Android Manner). 2 + Begin & End Waypoints dicovered and then uploaded through BT to #fenix3. Only the Elevation is missing. GREAT Tools and at least something usable to upload Waypoints without Cable or Wifi.

Do not work for Quatix 3? Will it work

Super appli ! A ce jour c'est la seule app qui permet de transférer des tracks et waypoints du téléphone mobile vers la montre Garmin, sans avoir besoin d'une connexion internet.

I've been searching for apps that would send coordinate of any location I found on Google Map to my new Garmin Femix 5X and this is the only app that seems to be able to do exactly what I want. I installed it last night and at first it does seem to work when I shared to location found on Google Map to IQMapReceiver. It only fired up to screen with empty fields of location name, longitude and latitude for me to fill in. After tweaking the setting a bit (enable Internet access and MPRS ) it did automatically populate those fields when I shared a location from Gmap. However, the values of longitude and latitude it entered does not match those of the location I just shared. Bugs?

Works fine on fenix 3 / companion apps for waypoint but i'm not able to import gpx / fit track. Fit server is enable, but il always a null waypoint instead off track. What is the exact procedure to send gpx / fit file to fenix 3 ? does it work ?

The new track-up-load frature works fine on fenix 5s!

13 April 2017 | Version 2.2.13-u

Really happy that you may this possible, because I search everywhere in the garmin parameters how to create a position, and it wasn't possible. Furthermore, with the mobile app, this is easier. Thanks again !

I have both Fenix3 and VivoactiveHR. I send waypoints to Fenix3 with IQ Map Receiver at now. After this connect both watches to computer, go to folder LOCATION on Fenix and copy file LCTNS.FIT to the folder NEWFILES on VivoactiveHR. After this got waypoints on VivoactiveHR. It is terreble pocedure, but only one way wich I find. Online conversion gpx to fit not work for vivoactive

18 March 2017 | Version 2.2.10-upd

Great app! Unfortunately it is not working on my fenix 5x yet. I only get the IQ logo with an exclamation mark, when I start the app on the watch. Hope this can be fixed!

sorry. should be fixed with version 2.2.11

I send waypoints from Android on the watch Vivoactive HR, I go to the IQ Map Receiver application on the watch, and press "save". All looks ok, but the new place does not appear in the list of saved places. Perhaps the problem appears because vivoactive HR can import only .fit files but does not import .gpx from NEWFILES folder

12 February 2017 | Version 2.2.8

Great programm, work on garmin vivoactive hr. Thanks!

05 February 2017 | Version 2.2.7

Works great on Fenix 3, are you planning to add support for Vivoactive HR?

Works perfect with Garmin Fenix 3 HR and Samsung Galaxy S7. It is really easy to use!

Application is good, but have a problem, at least on my phone (Huawei P8). After I installed iqmap receiver for android, smart notifications become disabled and I can enabled again for my fenix 3 only after factory reset of my phone. I've installed this application (for android) for 2 times and after both installs I should reset my phone.
