This is a excellent product. I use it with my Fenix 5x. Route planning on the watch is cumbersome, but with routecourse and dwmap I can plan a route on my cell phone or ipad and have it on my watch in a matter of a couple minutes. There are good videos and instructions on the dynamicwatch website. This is a must have App. I use it for hunting where I drive into an area and then head into the bush hunting where there are no trails that are on maps. You can plan the whole trip from home to where you start walking.....up ridges, along alpine areas and up/down valleys. The routes you plan are stored in "Courses" in the Navigation File.

Product is amazing, works just as you want it to and the support team were literally responding to emails in real time. Both dwMap and routeCourse work awesome together too. Hike on the weekend we went the wrong way a couple times but the maps on the watch alerted me straight away, just perfect.

I was looking for a sat nav for road and mountain biking and trail running. Some expensive options available that would have put my Garmin Vivoactive Hr out of a job. Then I got the free ( best value there is) map field and dwmap for the vivoactive. These worked well for all activities. I upgraded to premium for the turn by turn feature in dwmap which was well worth it. The support desk responds really quickly and is very helpful. The developers listen to feature requests and tweaks that (IMO) might make the App even more useful. I can confidently set off on a long ride or run with no concerns or wasted time over route finding. Great value (free!) and still great value upgrading to premium. Excellent support. App performs really well.

iPhone app doesn't work, won't let me sign in even though I already made an account. This is my first impression of the app and makes me not want to use it.

It's a great app! I use it to build running routes and send them to my vivoactive 3. Then I can follow the route as displayed in the watch facebwhile running, even without my phone.

Julie, note we might not spot a tech support question within a review here for few days, but we respond very promptly to emails. Uninstalling a Connect IQ app like ours is part of Garmin's part of the system and not in our direct control, but can be done using either Garmin Connect Mobile on your phone or Garmin Express on your computer. There does seem to be an issue right now with their install process however. Here is Garmin's guide for uninstalling apps: https://support.garmin.com/faqSearch/en-US/faq/content/ZOJb1R5G9M4PKsnxOyIdv7.

Great app. I love maps and having them on my Vivoactive 3 with premium background maps is really neat. The companion app and website and browser extension all work together to make it super easy to get maps and routes on to my watch. Clearly the watches are very hardware limited and I think this app maxes out what is possible, its a shame its not possible to have background maps on datafields for instance and the background map load speed can be a bit slow but these are limitations of the hardware not the app. Great app and great support!

Got premium for maps on my Vivoactive 3. Worked great. Good website, too. Worth the price of admission!

I would like to know if it is possible to send the route to the watch when I have the watch connected to my computer by wire. I can’t pair it to my phone, seems to be a problem with Huawei phones.

Please contact us at [email protected] and we'd be delighted to help you troubleshoot your issue. (We might not spot a tech support question within a review here for few days, but we respond very promptly to emails.) It’s a limitation of the Connect IQ system that apps have to communicate via Bluetooth to a phone/tablet and not over USB to a PC.

Background map is not avalaible for my watch, but it's still increadibly useful. Basically makes it pointless to buy a high-end watch, all you need is a watch that's compatible with this app.

I installed the app, linked my account, downloaded a route which shows on my Fenix 5s but no map appears. I guess you get the map when you pay € 9.99!

Jan: Please contact us at [email protected] and we'd be delighted to discuss your concern. (We might not spot a question within a review here for few days, but we respond very promptly to emails.) Most of the features of dwMap are available in the free version, include showing your route on screen, but the "background maps" feature is one of the few features that does require Premium.

I don't usually write reviews but wanted to say a few words about this app. A couple of Christmases ago, my wife bought me the Garmin Forerunner 735XT which in itself, is a wonderful piece of kit. I do a lot of trail and adventure running and a bit of cycling so it was able to keep track of all my adventures, heart-rate etc. etc. I was absolutely satisfied with it. Then I got to think about mapping and wanted to have a watch based directional guide to help on the trails, open moorland and mountain trails. This would save me having to refer to my hand-held GPS on the technical trails. The 735XT doesn't come with mapping as standard so I was considering upgrading to the Fenix 5S but at £500-£600 couldn't justify the cost. Enter DW Maps! I'm not sure how they've done it but this does exactly what I wanted it to do. I was very sceptical at first thinking that I couldn't see the time whilst I was running, or that it wouldn't log my runs on the Connect app but it does it all. All you have to do is scroll through and the information is there. It took a little time to work out how to set the active route but that was just me; it's quite a simple process. When it's activated, it tells you when to turn and when you're "off-route". A truly brilliant app guys that has saved me hundreds of pounds. I usually create the GPX routes on OS online and then transfer them to the DW Maps site where my account sits. Set the active route and sync my 735XT with Connect and it's that simple. As I said, I'm not usually moved to write reviews but these guys deserve a big-up for this one. And no, they're not paying me!!!
