Good but the back button doesn't work when the app is working, so I cannot see the time or other widgets on my watch while using this. FYI, I am using Vivoactive HR.

On the Garmin touchscreen watches it was possible until recently to do a long-tap (press and hold) on the screen while running an installed app like ours and it would show the watch face (and the built in widgets). For some reason this has disappeared from the watches.

Great app including very quick support if needed. Im a happy premium user.

April 24, 2017

Great app from a great developer - super quick response to questions and very helpful.

April 24, 2017

Super app, initially had trouble setting it up, contacted developer and they replied in minutes.... 10/10 guys, keep up the great work....

Aweaome app. I stuggled a bit with dwmap which rebooted at 10 km whereby I lost my steps. Marcus replied to my mail within 5 minute and had a replacement file copied to my watch. Fantastic service. The app for runners is a must as it takes the guesing away of where to turn and where not. I will be upgrading to premium due to navigation prompts, customized fields and alerts on km markers. Keep up the good work and thank for enriching our lives. A must app for runners.

This app allows me to do more with a vivoactive than i thought possible. I use it for navigation in the bush mountain biking and for road rides. The screen is simple but effective and gives a good route following capability.

Truly impressive, I would never have thought that an app on a watch could do so much. Their premium makes an even bigger difference and is totally worth the 10$ per year. My new must!

April 18, 2017

Awesome. I was looking for such an app, comparable to what TomTom did with their last watch. Dynamic Watch goes much further and the premium version is really worth it for 10$ a year.

April 17, 2017

Saved me in the forest. Exactly what I need for running in unknown areas

April 15, 2017

Love the route planning options- uploads are easy; new designs are easy.

April 14, 2017

It is great! Support my needs at trail running. And the service is excellent, I was not sure how to download the track, and send them email for help, they reply within few hours! Professional!

April 13, 2017

Great app! Works flawless! Adds functionality to my Fenix 3, which should have been provided by garmin (especially mobile route uploading, easy to use map feature). Superb support!

April 12, 2017

Very satisfied with Customer Support. Marcus replied my emails in just few minutes and I could fix my problems to import routes from Wikiloc

April 10, 2017

Very nice! Just tested it on Garmin 230. It work fine. Just imported a GPX map, ready for running on coming Friday. ^^

offset serious in Beijing China

This is outside of our control unfortunately since Google and other maps have an offset baked into them in China. See

Definitely worth the 9.99$ a year! Great customer support, I received a response within the hour on a Sunday. Extremely helpful and amazing application. Makes it really easy for me to plan my next course on the trail! Whether it be hiking, MTB, or a just a trail run, it's an app that can do it all.

March 25, 2017

Absolutely well worth the $9.99 Premium upgrade price. Best GPS mapping option for a vivoactive HR and it's not even close.

March 22, 2017

Ok, this is simply the best non-Garmin app I have come across. I was looking for something with map features (you would think Garmin would include something with a GPS watch) and this does exactly what I need. I will be running an ultra marathon in Iceland and have heard other runners talk about the route not being very clear. There are gpx files for the route, and this app let me upload it to my Forerunner 235 and track both the course, how far I am potentially off course, and directions to get back on (I tested it locally). This exceeds my expectations on every level. Oh, and the support I got from Marcus while I worked out the details was also outstanding!

March 22, 2017

Amazing app. You can customize ur own route or get suggestions. Best app for hiking, cycling or traveling.

March 20, 2017

works very well with my FR230; premium features are well worth the money

March 20, 2017

could not get it connected properly would not generate a number

Please contact us at and we can help you troubleshoot your issue. That is a far more effective way of requesting tech support than leaving a review here that we might not see for a few days, and can only reply to in this limited fashion. Thanks.

Great app! I use the premium version and it's definately worth it! They have a great customer support as well.

March 18, 2017

Nice app. So far so good. I want to hike in Italy. For your comfort. May I get lost, you will never hear any complaints from me. Fred

Il ne manque que l'orientation automatique de la carte à la direction du coureur et là à serait parfait!
