One of customer support attendant (Marcus) help me with quickly replay and good advices to solve my problem. Thanks.

So far so good. Good value for premium. Thanks!

I had a frustrating issue linking to mtb project and decided to send an email. The response was within 30 minutes and the tech (Marcus) was super helpful and willing to get the issue figured out. I figured it out myself because for some reason there was a space after my email that was causing the log in not to work! How dumb! All is good now and i highly recommend email contact for any issues! Thanks a lot!

Good app but garmin can be a bit complicated if you havent used it for a while.

Yep, I'm another frustrated user with Windows Phone and I'm still wondering if there is something missing in the OS or in the App? :/

The app works great with Android and iPhone, and has right from its first release. The Windows Phone version of Garmin Connect Mobile does not properly supply the data services that an app like ours needs. Discussions on the Garmin forums suggest it might be more to do with Windows itself than with the Garmin app, and that the next release of the Window Phone OS (April?) will implement Bluetooth connections much better, but I am just passing-on the speculations of others.

App seems not to be compatible with either my superior 920xt watch or with my useless Windows phone. Keep getting either the "Must be online code:1" or the "Must be online:2" error code. Great project though.

Right yes: the app is compatible with the 920XT, and that is popular amongst our users, but it is not compatible with Windows Phone. We'd love for it to be, but the data services in Garmin Connect Mobile have issues on Window Phone. iPhone and Android work great.

Great support for quatix 3

Très bonne application! je crée mon parcours sur " DynamicWatch " Je peux zoomer pour plus de précision afin de savoir ou je dois tourner. La synchronisation se fait de la même manière qu'avec les autres applis intégré à Garmin, il faut enregistrer l'activité. Je recommande cette appli, même si on a pas la carte de fond, nous avons un tracé et franchement ça suffit, je ne me suis pas perdu

I give this app 5 stars for the following reasons: 1. It turned my watch, which not meant to have any maps og course guidance into a proper pathfinder devise. 2. It is more or less accurate and quite easy to work with The app has it's disadvantages, but in order to overcome them, one need to buy a device with the proper maps. I ended up deep in the mountains, running trails, when I realized I didn't know the path back to the camp. Luckily, I had pre-downloaded the trail map into dwMap. This saved my butt big time. Ever since, I use it for everytime I get out there where I've never been before. People, its worth it!
