Great app! Love grabbing map files to put on my Garmin Venue for mountain bike rides. Marcus in tech support was amazing helping me when I forgot how I originally signed up. Highly recommend the ultimate subscription for turn by turn directions! Links up with all the good apps like Trail forks, Strava, all trails etc.

It is a really nice app. The option to prepare a route in the computer is perfect, although I cannot mark the route as bike instead of hike (or I don't find the option) Also I would like to have the posibilite to configure the data in the garmin watch, to have a screen with the data I want to see, for example height, heart rate...

Die erste App, die auch beim Wandern brauchbar navigiert. Super!

Stephen, 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.)

Runs smoothly on my Vivoactive 4! Quick and helpful response from the developer. I use it for planning and navigating routes when road biking. Waypoints are also useful for marking segments.

I already tested the app with 35 km of cycling and everything works great on my Vivoactive 3. The app helped me to navigate through the route that I uploaded earlier and after I finished my training, everything was correctly uploaded to Strava and Garmin Connect. There is a problem with logging in to Android app with Strava account and the developer recommended to log in with web browser - it's a good solution because I found everything I need (creating my own route) and all working good on web browser. I'm positively surprised that the dev replied to my report within 15 minutes. Keep up the good work and thank you ;)

Great app. Works really well. I had a slight problem in that I set up 2 accounts one paid and one free. The problem was sorted quick and easy. Good communication. Well with the money.

Meilleur application avec import de tracés GPX sur Fenix 3.

May 26, 2020

Great app! On my experience, more battery-efficient than a default running app.

I started using Strava premium routes and was surprised it does not offer voice guidance. This app (premium version) allows me to upload Strava routes and get guidance on my forerunner 235. Works well so far in my first test!

Useful, easy to use

Great support team - I had issues uploading GPX files, and reached out to support. They got back to me within a couple of hours, and tweaked the code over the weekend. Works perfectly now.

Perfektní aplikace. Super rychlá podpora. Prémiové funkce za malé peníze.

May 23, 2020

Great app, Premium is worth the money. Nice to have: an option to reverse the route on the watch itself.

Excellent for hiking and traveling in unknown areas.

Amazing especially with Premium for the background maps. Excellent support too.

I've been using this app on my Forerunner for about 4 years on my FR230. The app is superb - the 230 is relatively basic, but this has given me the ability to navigate routes in unfamiliar areas in many countries that I've visited. Designing a new route on my phone, and syncing to the device, is simplicity itself. Very highly recommended. I'm planning to upgrade to a Fenix 5 shortly, and am looking forward to using the background map functionality that this app will then add to that watch which, despite being higher end, still does not provide onboard maps natively.

May 18, 2020

Great app for adding mapping functionality to my Vivoactive 4. The initial setup takes a little fiddling but once you do that, the app works well. I've been able to try out new routes that meet my distance goals, while leaving my phone at home and not worrying about getting lost. Also thanks to the app developer for the prompt and friendly response to my support question.

I absolutely love this app! Everything just works. And when I recently forgot how to use a feature that I had not used for a while, I asked for help and got timely, expert help that resolved my issue.

May 16, 2020

Prima app doet precies wat het beloofd. Zeer goed in gebruik. Uitstekende service door “marcus” bij het installeren.

May 14, 2020

Great for the convenience of drawing a route you want to take on a phone or a PC and then sending it to the watch with one click of a button. Also upgraded to premium for turn by turn navigation and background maps. This works a treat. The map on the watch with a little screen isn't going to ever be a replacement for a map on the phone imo but for making sure you are taking the right turn is perfect. The route planner web app is good but can get itself into a pickle on occasions if you use "remove the last point" and redraw the route a few times on more complex courses but all in all a great effort ( is my favourite though for drawing purposes). Recommended.

An amazing app been wanting something like this for years. As a long distance runner it gives me the option to create cool routes if I'm not up to exploring at the time. It takes a while to figure out the logistics and how the app works with your phone and watch but once you get there's its such a useful App. I made the mistake of trying to choose my active route via my laptop, instead of via the web browser version on my mobile so avoid doing that. Again awesome app and idea can't rate it highly enough !

Nutze die App als Radcomputer mit Navi zum Rennradfahren. Mit der Kartendarstellung mittels Background Map Feature wir meine Uhr zur super schlanken Alternative zum Garmin Edge 530. Uhr um Halterung vorn am Lenker, Wahoo Trittfrequenz Sensor am Kurbelarm und Polar OH1 Herzfrequenz am Oberarm. Das Handy verschwindet in der Tasche und saugt beim fahren die Background Map Karten aus dem Netz. Ein nachladen von Kartensegmenten dauert bei mir etwa 2 Sekunden.

Best map navigation app for "non-map" watches. It will be better, if the vibrations will be stronger - or relattive to watch settings, the vibrations seems to be weaker.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
