great app for hitting new trails. Nice to not have to carry my phone or gps device. Can just look down at my watch to follow the trail. While the app is great, the support is even better! They worked tirelessly with me during this whole GCM bug issue and got a version out to me that worked around Garmin's bug before I hit a new hike.

So perfect app. I use it for running on my "Forerunner 230". Running anywhere in any foreign country or city becomes simple. Not enought accurate for long route more than 30 km but, developper know it and sure it will be fixed quickly.

Right yes, we've reduced the number of points downloaded for each route temporarily while we wait for the Garmin fix to the Android version of Garmin Connect Mobile, then we'll move it back up to normal ASAP.

Have used this a few times and loved it. I was about to upgrade to the paid version so I can edit Strava imported routes until I used it today and it had errors and I had to restart it 3 times in under 15 miles. It was a great app what a shame it has bugs now.

Please contact us at 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.) We've not changed the app recently, so I'd like to troubleshoot what is happening in your case? Also be aware there is a major problem relating to the using the app with the Android version of Garmin Connect Mobile right now.

The app keeps not updating when I set a different default route. The only solution I have found is to unlink my watch and relink it. Extremely annoying that this app doesn't work properly for me.

Good but for a few days it does not work anymore as it resolves ?? I need some racing! ..... it would be convenient for the screen to rotate like standard navigators and not that the arrow rotates that sometimes you do not understand where to go ....

Just choose "track-up" instead of "north-up" in your settings (on your and the map will rotate as you move.

Totally amazing! Now I can follow the route without stopping, getting phone from the pocket and checking location. It's a new level of biking for me. I see only one disadvantage: the route on the watch is rendered with very small precision. I mean: while in reality the road makes many small turns, or forks gently, it is rendered as straight line. So you know the general direction, but cannot be quite sure exactly which way to follow...

June 21, 2017

I totally love this app!!! It's opened a whole new world of running to me. And, I didn't have to invest in a super expensive watch to take advantage of it. I just love the fact that I can create running routes anywhere in the world. I'm always surprised when a runner doesn't know about it, and so pleased to be able to spread the word. Thank you!

I was having some trouble download the created route from my laptop to Garmin fenix 3, so I emailed and got a response at 6pm in Alaska within 5 minutes. Easily fixed the issue and was on my way. Great customer service. Only reason for 4 stars is the inability to create routes on trails already on the map. For some reason the website will not allow the route to go to a certain point. It seems like a glitch because it automatically switches to another route. Once I figure this out I will give 5 stars.

Super annoying from the first moment. When trying to use the app, I get a message directing me to enter a code at some unknown place (not even a URL provided). So it's utterly useless at the outset. Wtf?

Contact us at info@dynamicwatch and we'd be happy to assist. Note that the URL for the webpage to enter the code is actually shown on the same watch face as the code itself:

Great for trail running in new areas where you don't know the route.

June 8, 2017

Great ! User friendly and precise

June 3, 2017

I am a novice at all this but it was all well explained and fairly easy to set up. Needed help as I had the error code because I wasn't initially connected via bluetooth to my phone but the troubleshooting gave me an answer and I had incredibly quick responses to my emails - very helpful, and the app works a treat!

The full potential unlocks if you go premium which i did and it really is a must app to have. Especially usefull if you are on a trail with a MTB where you have the route in your garmin watch and vibrates on intersections and off route. If the developer can add an option for routing with a car then we will use that also to get to the start of the trail. In any case, an awesome app and well worth it to have it premium. Thumbs Up

Excellent- a great help for route finding

May 18, 2017

Excelent app

May 15, 2017

dwMap isn't only app for my FR230, that have a function from e.g. fenix watch. This is app for fun with many features (especially Premium ver.) with great support (I tested it all day today, thanx Marcus). Anyway, I am looking forward to use dwMap in ultrarun next weekend ...

May 15, 2017

I have absolutely NO sense of direction. At all. Love this app because it makes me aware of upcoming turns, tells me when I'm off route and automatically records activities. It's also a snap to download or create new routes. GREAT app!

May 14, 2017

Muy buena y fácil de usar

May 12, 2017

Perfect, will be going pro. Never get lost again :D

May 4, 2017

Great app so far, I'm waiting for use it in a real race. I had some issues linking my device, but the support team fixed it real quick, and the app never crashed or did nothing weird during this process, 5 stars and two tumbs up!!

May 3, 2017

Works better than expected, perfect navigation app for the vivoactive HR. I had a few questions and Marcus got back to me nearly immediately with support for the questions I had, highly recommended!

May 2, 2017

App molto funzionale e comoda servizio assistenza dello sviluppatore eccezionale rispondono alle e-mail praticamente in tempo reale consigliatissima

Incredible how easy it's to get a route from Strava/Garmin to the watch with no intervention after initial setup!

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
