Muy buena idea lo que realmemte necesitaba mi fénix 3, compartir a través de googlemaps no funciona correctamente

17 April 2016 | Version 0.1.0

Great app, saves time making way points for my fenix 3. I have found it works with any navigation app that can export as text.

19 April 2016 | Version 0.1.0

Very good idea! Very good job! Question: is it possible to add elevation field? (handwritten entry of data in the phone)

wooooooooow!!!! offline ! waipoints with map on smartphone offline!!! looooove it!!!

23 April 2016 | Version 0.1.0

Great. It's the app we've been waiting for. Next function should be importing the whole route into the Fenix 3, then you'll have a fully fledged 'basecamp mobile' app! Take notes Garmin development team :)

24 April 2016 | Version 0.1.0

Es ist bestimmt eine Super App, aber sie ist nicht mit meinem S3 komaptibel :( wenn das geändert wird gebe ich 5 Sterne!

You are reading my mind - I was just planning to post this idea to Fenix 3 forums. This feature should have been implemented into Connect Mobile application since beginning. Tested briefly - worked with no issues. Thank you for this app!

25 April 2016 | Version 0.1.0

Super app,

1 May 2016 | Version 0.1.0

Awesome app. We just need to hope that the Garmin implements a course import API. Then, we will have a killer navigation app for most of a Garmin watches.

Unbelievably convenient, easy to use, time-saving and altogether amazing! This app literally saves me HOURS of manually entering coordinates into my Fenix 3 prior to going outdoors on a hike or camping or just wandering through the woods of Minnesota. Thank you so much for creating this application. I downloaded it onto my tablet & phones so any time I want to save a point of interest on Google Maps, I simply long press a point, share it via this app, "save" it via this app on my Fenix 3 and - VOILA! - there it is as a "Saved Location" in the Navigation section of my watch. No more manually entering coordinates! Wooooo hooooo! Thanks for making this awesome app!!!!

Idea is great but so far most probably works only on Android. Cannot find IQMapReceiver in AppStore ;( any plans to release it do iOS?

the app is for free, due to the fact that i do not have an iphone and app development for apple is not free of charge, i think there won´t be an apple version, sorry.

18 August 2016 | Version 2.0

Fenix 3Hr, 3.51b not active in phone app "send to device" button. Top writed fenix 3 connected and green. Coordinates and name ok. in watch app started, All new ver.

23 August 2016 | Version 2.0

Great App it makes the Waypoint/Favorite transfere really easy and fast. I tested it with Samsung S5 and Locus Pro (powerful naviation app) running on it. I created 3 Waypoints in Locus exported them to a gpx file and imported it in the Android companion App. Trasfere worked perfecly. Awsome Thanks a lot. One question: Are the waypoints transfered to a server in the internet or where they direcly transfered from mobile phone to the watch? Thanks Florian

Hi Octane, Privacy is very important for me. A tool that works everywhere is very important for me. So the tool shall replace the USB otg cable a bit. The gpx data points are only transferred over Bluetooth to the watch. The only reason to use Internet access is to resolve google map s requests (that can be disabled under settings).

Great app! Works now with Fenix 3 and Sony Xperia Z3 compact. The only strange thing was the altitude data which seemed way off. 12000 metres was set for a waypoint i transfered from Google Maps. But again, one of the best apps out there. Finally I can manage waypoints from the mobile.

9 September 2016 | Version 2.2

Great idea but does noit save waypoints to my Vivoactive HR

11 September 2016 | Version 2.2

Great idea! Version 2.1, version 2.2 is unable to transmit the waypoint in my Fenix 3, says "not device with suitable app connected" while on the clock app is running and connecting to the Bluetooth feature.

13 September 2016 | Version 2.2

I can see on my vivoactiv hr, how many wps will be send, when I push the start button, I become a IQ! Screen and I thing no wps are transferred. I do not find the transferred wps on the vivoactiv.

Geat idea, but exact same behavior on vivoactive HR as viewer1 describe. Clock receive Data, after push the save button I always get an IQ error.
