Like many other Garmin experiences I have had, this is pretty consistent - poor experience. Unintuitive "Open the GCM App on your phone" which I did - and said it needed to be authorised by Strava - which then says "Your session expired. Please log in again." Have tried many things including logging out and logging in again - nothing.. and like my other experiences, this has been a 1-star. Garmin, please do something about it...

Doesn't work. Strava reports "session expired" IQ app just waits with the screen "To complete...."

I had problems downloading routes to my Garmin Edge 1030. I was connected and could see my routes. But when I "clicked" one of them nothing happened. After a couple of seconds I got an IQ icon with an yellow exclamation mark. I just realized that it was a issue regarding my naming of the route. Maybe the name was too long or included non acceptable characters. I changed the name to "65 km" and it instantly worked.

Worked fine before, but stopped working recently. Error 400. Updates both Connect IQ app, as well as Garmin Express to no avail.

Doesn't work! The created routes will successfuly sync to my Garmin Fenix 5s. However the watch fails to navigate the route. It just crashes! Please fix this function!!

Does not work on my edge 820 Error 403

February 14, 2019 | Version 4.5

Does not work on my 1030 with IPhone running latest Iphone OS. My 1030 connects to the Garmin Connect Then I go to my 1030 - press IQ - STRAVE - it say - to mplete connection open .... etc... on my phone .. on the phone I get message - must log onto Strava - I agree the sharing of info etc... and all it does is to take me to my Strave normal web site (and this is within Garmin Connect program (blue border on my phone screen) - No impressed ...

update works great on 1030. love the change to only show a smaller number of more recent routes. makes it much quicker.

Not sure why so many people are having trouble with this version but it works like a dream on my Fenix 5x!

Impossível conectar, mesmo com todos os aplicativos instalados e autorizados não funciona.

Impossible to connect my watch to Strava Routes: it keeps mentioning "session expired" when we try to grant access to Strava account on the iOS Garmin Connect App. No Workaround, impossible to copy and paste the auth URL to test it from another device/browser: everything is disabled on the screen.

Utterly brilliant on my 520, so useful. Love the cues/turn direction's too.

used to work fine. but not sure what changed, i kept getting "your session expired. Please log in again." giving up. deleting ...

How to fix "Session timed out" error... Very frustrating for awhile, but all you have to do when your session is said to have timed out is: 1) Swipe down and click the "hamburger" options button and log out 2) Close the Garmin app by double clicking home button and swiping up 3) Restart the Garmin app on your phone and Strava Routes app on device 4) Log back in when prompted.

Keep getting Bluetooth error, even though my phone is connected. It just will not load the routes I have created. More crap software from Garmin! Really disappointed in their Face It app too!

Sounds great, but doesn't work. The device (Edge 520 plus) says go to my phone to complete, my phone logs into Strava and immediately says session expired. Quit, re-log in and still nothing. Thus far my foray back into Garmin products has been a disaster.

Tras descargar la ruta y desconectar el móvil mi 735XT inició la ruta pero ni contaba km ni ritmo ni nada de nada.Supongo que no será necesario llevar el movil encima, porque sino para que quiero un reloj...

November 28, 2018 | Version 4.3

Cannot use it, as i cannot log in strava with my google account from Garmin Connect... It says: "Error: disallowed_useragent. This user-agent is not permitted to make an OAuth authorization request to Google as it is classified as an embedded user-agent".

This is going to be long-winded, but I hope it helps someone else who has the same problem as me. The app worked great for about 8 months for me. I used it heavily to navigate trails and new street commute runs. Then, right when I needed it most (traveling abroad), I kept getting the following two messages, in series, when attempting to load a route: "Exceeded maximum number of courses. Some courses not imported." Followed immediately by "Trouble connecting to the server Error Code: 2050." I contacted Strava support, and they had me follow a procedure similar to what others here have recommended, to no avail. However, as I poked around, I noticed the Navigate feature had a "Courses" section; in that (completely unrelated to Strava) app, were all my Strava courses! This was likely the aforementioned, filled-up courses section the first error was talking about! I deleted all courses from that section, and voila, I am once again able to use the app.

Bei mir ging die Installation nur über Garmin Express. Also den Edge mit USB zum PC verbinden, danach die IQ-App in Garmin Express öffnen und Strava Routes herunterladen. Danach nochmal die im Smartphone erscheinende Authentifizierungs-Aufforderung bestätigen und danach ging es bei mir (Garmin Edge 520)

November 4, 2018 | Version 4.1

Ah, finally! Back to loading private routes. Thank you developers! Update (or reinstall) the app from Garmin Connect, go through authentication again and authorize the use of private route info. Works like a charm again on my FR935!

Preinstalled on edge 1030. Routes show on device but crashes when click on navigate. No good.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
