No app for México. I can't believe Garmin / Iheart sell a product with no worldwide support or use. I'll have to load old music, pirated on MP3 format to my 645 "music"

I'm having an issue with downloading the complete list of music. Every time I tried to sync, it would stop at 65% mark and eventually gives me an error message saying there was an issue downloading. The partial list of music is downloaded and not the complete list.

What is happening when you go to iHeart to activate?

I was skeptical about the app with all the negative reviews. I was waiting for the Deezer app to see if that would be better, but who knows if that is ever coming to Garmin. I signed up for IHeartRadio All Access (30 day free trial) and downloaded the app. The app works well. No issue to report. You do need to plug in you watch to the power cable to sync music from WIFI (took about 10-15 minutes to download 45 songs). It is nice to be able to sync the playlists I created from IHeartRadio and use them on my Vivoactive 3 Music when I am running or out for a walk and do not need my phone. Lots of great music on IHeartRadio.

After reading reviews I was concerned it wouldn't work. It took a few tries to synch because I was in bad wifi area, but after 3rd attempt it synched perfectly and I was able to get my playlist on my watch and use it for my run. Fenix 5 plus.

Unusable. VivoActive3 Music will not sync playlists. Goes thru motions, ends with message "Some files have not synced"... then no music or playlists at all!

After the music syncs, have you selected iHeart Radio as your music source in the music player?

It's not the smoothest experience in the world, but it works, and that's what really matters. The great thing about Garmin is that this will improve over time. It might not always be what you want, exactly when you want it, but issues always seem to get resolved. Thanks for this one !

No luck getting it to work on my Vivoactive 3 Music. Unable to find WiFi network, and has frozen up my watch when I've tried.

Which firmware version of the Vivoactive 3 music do you have?

When the Wifi network SSID is not being broadcast, it has trouble connecting to the WIFI. This is very difficult to figure out. The 500MB limit is probably not their fault and imposed by Garmin but I have 14GB on my Fenix 5x plus. What the hell will I use it for if not for music and maps? Please increase the storage limits for the music apps. Also, please document the sync process with a good informative video. This was not easy to do and I am programmer.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
