January 29, 2021 | Version 1.2.0
First, sorry for my english - I'm french.
I try before the DwMap App, and i'm not satisfed of it.
This app is better ! and free ;) You can choose the data fields, and the gpx import is more intuitive with the app companion.
Just a question : what are the bread crumbs ? I understand "like the Little Thumb" but how I can use it, and for what ?
Thank you for your development of this app : my old FR235 is happy ;)

Thank you for your nice review. The 'bread crumbs' feature is a visualization of the trace of your current activity by playing blue dots at a configurable distance along the trace. This might be helpful in situations where you deviate from the track by a large distance and want to return back to the point of deviation.

A very good working and usable app.
One little remark: the fact that tapping the screen stops and starts the time running is not handy. I think that should be the same as with the standaard garmin apps be done with the button on the watch.

Thank you for your review. I've released a new version that uses the button to start/stop activities on devices with touchscreens.. Please let me know if you encounter any issues with the new version as my testing capabilities are limited by the simulator.

I love this app and the user-friendly synergy with the Android app. It's really well done and one you get a grip on it, it's done in a smart way.
However, some things I would like to see, perhaps in a fork (I might try to assist):
Integration of the map as a datafield, perhaps necessarily with a standard zoom setting, or two different datafields, one with the overview and one a 100m radius (or something you define in the settings). The main reason for this is to have all functions of the activity, notably auto-pause. Also I fear that in this app, you might stop the ride before you know it by accidentally touching the screen. Somewhat related, I like tapping the screen on the VA4 at night rides and runs to quickly glance at the map of the Turn-to-Turn navigation data field, but that one lacks the user-friendliness to transfer gpx's like yours has and the looks are different. In the app as it is, it would be better to change tapping the screen and a single short click (start/pause/resume) in the upper right-hand button (currently not used, and Forerunners can just keep with the light button) to solve those last two little issues.
Regardless of this idea, the app is really cool and thanks for bringing it to the VA4, unlike Komoot, for instance. I wish there were more apps at this level.

Thank you for your positive review. I would really appreciate if you could assist in implementing your suggested improvements. The app was originally developed for my FR 235 device, which is still the only Garmin device I physically own. It is very hard for me to test the experience on other devices by just using the simulator. Also, many suggested improvements won't smoothly work on the FR 235 due its very limited specs and sdk. I would be happy to assist as much as I can.

Possessore di Garmin Vivoactive 3 music, per le mie gite trail sto utilizzando questa app. che mi permette di caricare tracce gpx e costruire percorsi direttamente sulla mappa. Dopo l'ultimo aggiornamento funziona molto bene e devo ringraziare lo sviluppatore per avermi seguito nel migliorare l'uso e le funzionalità. Sono sicuro che ci saranno ancora miglioramenti e per chi non può spendere troppo per un Fenix questa è una valida alternativa alla app. Garmin non funzionante su Vivoactive.

Amazing app, offline gpx upload with optimisation wonderful feature, intuitive and simple control. After adding some features and bugfixes i believe this app can be best in category. So about bugz: if i want only 1 active data screen must disable nr1 and 2 can't disable nr2 and 3 (tested on frunner235). External HRM not work (SDK limit ?), after successful upload longer track 100km optimisation 800 points app cant start, optimizing to 500 ok. In companion app choosing some tracks not showing names only blind choosing :) Option to choose activity type like cycling can make cyclists happier ;)

Thank you for your review and helpful feedback.
I will shortly release a new version where the data screen and external HRM bugs are fixed and which has the option to choose the activity type.
The limitation of the track points is caused by the app memory limit of 64kb(!) for the FR 235. As you mentioned, the optimization feature of the companion app is very effective in reducing the number of track points with acceptable distortion for most of reasonably sized tracks.
Unfortunately, I haven't been successful to reproduce the bug with empty track names in the companion app. The names are extracted from the gpx track name definitions inside the gpx files if present, otherwise just numerated. It would be great if you could send me some more details on this issue via email (e.g. track or route, example gpx etc).
September 25, 2020 | Version 1.0.7
Good idea. But limited ability to set fields . Really want altitude.
September 26, 2020, andan
Thank you for your review. Which further data fields are you missing?
I've already added altitude and could add more fields if required.
August 22, 2020 | Version 1.0.7
Easy to use, and open source!
July 3, 2020 | Version 1.0.4
Thanks for this app.
It is possible to change informations in the screen ? I don't want " Heart rate" and "Pace"...
July 4, 2020, andan
This is not possible with the current version. However, I will provide configurable data fields in the next version which I hope can be released within the next few weeks.
Please feel free to tell me your favorite data fields (there will be some limitations compared to the built-in fields) so that I can try to meet your requirements as much as possible.
November 11, 2019 | Version 1.0.3
Just what I needed. Light and simple. Works well on my Vivoactive 3. At first I did not find in companion app the menu selection for sending my waypoints to the device, but developer helped me quickly. (It is in Route mode view, under three dots menu.) Great work!
I hope there will be soon option to send only waypoints to the device (I do not need route in reality, just points for orientation).
July 18, 2019 | Version 1.0.2
when I want to install the playstore application it says "a screen overlay is detected" and it will not let me in
July 18, 2019, andan
Hi. This well known Android issue is likely caused by another app that is using the screen overlay function. Please try to set the WormNav app permissions from the main settings app of your Android device. If this works, I would be happy if you would review your rating.
May 10, 2019 | Version 1.0.1
Not tried it out in anger yet, but route manager is not showing the actual map details and every time I come out of the app my downloaded routes dissappear. (although it is easy enough to load up the gpx files and I can see them on my watch.) So I'm gonna rate it as OK till I try it out properly! Then I might amend!
May 11, 2019, andan
Thanks for your review.
I can confirm the issue with the disappearing routes or tracks when app is closed. I will fix it shortly.
Regarding the other issue: I assume that this relates to missing internet connectivity and/or related app permissions. I will do some further investigation and if necessary will provide a fix asap.
