I have a edge 1030 the app logs in to strava ok and I see my routes but when I try to download I get just an error icon IQ! absolutely no help at all. It would not be so bad if you get the reason for the error but noting how can this be released to the market. Updated both Device and IQ firmware version and reinstall the app no good

Impossible to enter from my garmin edge 820. Never login for more than authorize the accede in the smartphone. An important bug that disables the app's.

Nope, doesn't work on the Edge 520. As other people have noted, the app never moves on from asking you to open the Garmin Connect app on your phone, even after you've been through the authorization.

Useful for getting routes on to a Garmin device on the first place. However, there appears to be two major problems (on a 735XT): 1) The transfer mechanism appears to be a bit buggy. Will suffer quite often from a Bluetooth Error, only resolved with a cold reboot of the watch. 2) After downloading a route, will ask "Launch Course With..." Run/Bike/Swim. This function doesn't work. No matter which sport you select, it launches Open Water Swimming. To use the route, exit out of the application, go to navigation in the normal menu and select the route from there. It'll work fine, but it should really work directly from the application.

Does what it says

Pour tout ceux qui ont des problemes de connexions et d'authentification : il faut modifier sur votre compte strava le mot de passe pour ne plus se connecter directement avec le compte google mais avec un email et un mot de passe défini. il suffit de réinitialiser le mot de passe et d'entrer les nouveaux identifiants sur connect mobile garmin. Bonne route......

Cuando la app dice que debo dar permisos a strava, se los otorgo pero no me aparecen las rutas. no funciona

Fonctionne parfaitement sur Edge 520. Très pratique. Quelques problemes de connexion et telechargement parfois mais peut etre pas imputables à l'application (Pb bluetooth ou reseau)

Worked once - I created a route from an activity and it worked seamlessly. However now I cannot get anything to come across to my Fenix 5. It says "The next time you sync your Garmin Connect and Strava accounts" but I have no idea what this means. Can someone explain please?

Waste of time.......again! It would be great if it would work. "To complete Connection, open the Garmin Connect Mobile App on you phone", I've done that about 100 times, restarted everything and it never works.

Ho letto le lamentele che condivido pienamente, vedo i segmenti sul telefono ma non riesco a portarli sul mio Garmin edge 1000. Per fortuna che ho letto queste lamentele perchè mi stavo convincendo di andare a comprare un 1030 perchè ho letto che ha già l'app Strava intallata, visto che non funziona ugualmente, mi piacerebbe anche avere la versione in lingua Italiana. Mi chiedo come si fà a lanciare un programma che non funziona, io non sono bravo col computer ma voi non siete tanto meglio.

Un desastre. " Bluetooth error" cuando seleccionó la ruta que quiero en el menú del garmin. Por más que instalo y desinstalo nada de nada. Tendrá algo que ver con el firmware???

Did not work with 735 with "Bluetooth Error" message showing up.

Would be great if it worked! Creating Strava courses is so much easier than on Garmin Connect. The good news is that the app does connect OK with Garmin Connect on my iPhone - it just requires me to confirm that I authorise Garmin Connect to access my Strava data. BUT nothing then appears on my Garmin when I open the app. The instructions say my routes will appear when I sync my Garmin with Strava. It's not clear what this means (I spent about an hour trying to find a way to sync it manually) but I waited until I had uploaded a ride via Garmin Connect, and there is still nothing there. I'll leave the app on my Garmin for now in case anyone else has any ideas - otherwise it's back to plugging in a USB cable ...

Can't get this to work. The link to the Strava "Zendesk" doesn't work!

I am so happy this one exists. Really made my day several times. Then all of a sudden it stopped working throwing a Bluetooth error. Also seems to be the reason for my newly appearing Bluetooth error in general. Does not deinstall because of the Bluetooth error. 735XT

A few things are massively annoying about this. I have a new 1030 with the latest copy of the software. Each and every time I open this, I have to type in a username and password into Garmin Connect on my mobile before proceeding. The user-flow is rubbish. The button "remember this user" simply doesn't remember this user. I authorised Garmin Connect to access Strava, so why do I have to login each and every time? Worst however, is it simply doesn't work. I login Strava on the Garmin Connect mobile app on my iPhone 6 Plus, the list of routes shows up. I click one, and then I click the button Navigate. A few seconds later, I get an icon which looks like IQ with a question mark. I assume this is an error - but here is some feedback - if you have an error, report the a clearly understandable to the user. Don't show some cryptic graphic on the screen. The bottom line is, the application makes you login all the time, and when you actually try to download a route - it doesn't work. Nothing shows up in my 1030.

Really can't get it to work and am really disappointed about it. Bought a Garmin 1030 with high hopes and amongst others was interested in the live Strava segments feature. First the Strava Routes app on the Garmin kept asking to log in using the Connect mobile app on my phone, which wouldn't work. Kept getting a weird error (IQ with an exclamation mark, that's it). Reinstalled the app, then suddenly I got it to register with my Strava account but then was not able to activate the free 2 months premium account... Now I'm stuck with a Strava Routes app which keeps telling me I have no routes, although I have several routes starred in Strava. I don't know what to do next... Is it not working because I don't have the premium account. And how do I get my 2 months free trial now? This sucks!

Create a route from a friend's activity, or one of your own, then star the route by clicking the very small star to the right of the route's name - only done this on the the laptop so far. Worked fine, but watch out for notifications on the phone to ensure you're logged in.

edge1030jですが、年末購入直後は使えてましたが今は使えません。 ガーミン本体の初期化や再インストールも試みましたがダメのようです。 この機能に期待して買ったのもあるので残念です。

No entiendo muy bien las críticas porque a mí me va perfecto. De lo mejor teniendo en cuenta que todas las rutas que quiero copiar son de Strava.

edge1030 にインストールしたのだが、起動しない。 どうやら他の人も同様の症状のようだ。 早く修繕してほしい

Rubbish. If you scroll through the routes the connection breaks. You have to do the login and authorization process again. Had to repeat the process several times until I finally was able to download the route. Downloading it from strava to my computer and send it over USB to my garmin is 5times faster...

28 December 2017

As usual these are bug ridden and simply do not work. Utter Rubbish. Doesn't connect, doesn't recognise existing connection keeps asking to connect to Garmin Connect, even though it already is. Usual Rubbish from Garmin Apps.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
