The application makes your life quite easier to send your watch routes from almost any source. The customer support is great answering your doubts in minutes. Simply perfect!!

Using it on a 235. Super helpful. Planning a route on the website is easy and the transfer to the watch works great. Following a route e.g. in an foreign city works really good. My favorite app on the Forerunner 235.

To start the APP is a great idea and something that IMHO Garmin should provide by default on their high end watches if they want to be able to compete better with the iWatch and similar devices I bought the APP to support the development but I don't usually use it because of the high battery drainage (see below) PROs 1) Good for turn-by-turn directions for finding your way on a city 2) Allows following a GPX track where you can zoom in and out which I use for short MTB rides 3) Great progress with the companion cell phone APP that now allows more functionality CONs 1) Battery drains 2-3x faster than with the regular Garmin Bike profile. It almost drained completely my 920XT on a 5h bike ride (I usually get at least 11h using GPS with the Garmin Outdoor Bike profile) 2) Interface is not very intuitive (always forget how to switch between map and data screens) 3) Warnings are kind of annoying and it is not clear how I can turn them off while I am in the middle of a ride I used this for a couple of fundraiser rides of around 60 miles and I got several warnings while following a small road Things like OFF ROUTE and TURN LEFT/RIGHT when the road had a sharp curve Overall I think it is a great APP that can be very useful for finding your way on a city or for following a GPX track Just ensure your watch battery is fully charged and don't expect to get more than 5h out of it

This is great app! Thank you very much for your development. I got premium version! I have some requests below. - Vibration for crosspoint. When I am riding a bike, I can not keep checking the next intersection. - Large size text of Time of Today. I don't need the second.

Hi Koji -- thanks for the review! With Premium you should get 2 vibes for a coming left turn, and 3 vibes for a right turn, although not all watch models have a buzzer.

I wouldn't say it turned my Vivoactive 3 into a poor man's fenix 5x but it works great and is much easier to navigate with than using my fenix 2. I would like to see more options for the data fields and Tempe support but I really don't have any complaints. Support is excellent.

Installed this app last Monday evening. Since then, daily steps, sleep stats, intensity minutes, etc—literally all of my data—stopped syncing with Garmin Connect. The only thing that came across were actual recorded activities. I attempted to manually sync from Garmin Connect mobile app and via USB without success. I uninstalled dwMap and synced and the current day's data appeared. Prior days seem to be lost. They appear on the watch display but are not syncing to Garmin Connect.

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.). When our app is not visible then it is not running in any way, so cannot interfere with anything like sync'ing, but perhaps your watch is low on memory and the presence of the dwMap program file pushed it over a threshold?

Great app for people who don’t like getting lost on races, very quick support team answering all your questions which makes the app invaluable, recommend to everyone!!!!!

Excellent app, great customer support. However, it would be great for the distance and pace displayed on the map page to be of larger font for us middle aged people.

June 8, 2018 | Version V3.0.0054

Love the premium addition of a navigation page and the maps (while connected via bluetooth to the phone) are a great help to avoid navigating errors while just following the line. The map is much more useful than I thought.

Wszystko działa na moim vivoactive 3, można wczytać utworzoną mapę i bec po śladzie albo zboczyć z kursu i wrocić. Jedyny mankament to to że nie można pomniejszyć mapy (tylko do zoom 1, nie ma zoom 0, -1, -2 ) więc jak się odbiegnie za daleko to nie widać jak wrócić nie biegnąc tą samą drogą. Ale mimo to to świetna aplikacja bardzo intuicyjna

Really cool app, especially if you have one of the watches supporting background maps with premium account. Makes it so much easier to run routes you never ran before. Support is great as well, I got my question answered the same day.

May 31, 2018 | Version V3.0.0054

This is a great app with lots of options. You don't need to purchase a handheld GPS device if you are using this app in conjunction with a map and compass. No other app comes close to providing this type of functionality. The only thing I would live to see in future updates is an option to have OS Grid Referencing (GB) instead of longitude and latitude coordinates. Overall it is definitely worth downloading and purchasing.

Besides being my favorite App that gets better and better (if at al possible) with every update, I also had a fantastic support from customer service when I had a problem with my settings (I actually was the 'slow' person in replying to them. Thanks to Marcus and the entire team!

As always great support in case of any issues with app

Hello! I have a question about Garmin 3 HR. Whether it will be possible to Using the Background Maps soon? Thanks!

Developer Reply
May 20, 2018, mappicus

All other features work great on the Fenix 3 HR, but not the background maps, as that model does not have sufficient memory. Please contact us at [email protected] and we'd be delighted to help you further. (We might not spot a tech support question within a review here for few days, but we respond very promptly to emails.)

Hi, I would like to write my question/suggestion here. As fenix 5 supposedly has memory problems for storing maps and maps are not supported, I guess your app works by not storing map data on fenix 5 but instead it overwrites data when generating new background map image (which phone downloads from internet). But if that is the case, why isn't it possible to make an application which would have the possibility to download and import high detail map onto your phone and store it for offline use, then do the same thing - send background images (of small size) to fenix 5/5S. That way we could have maps on our fenix 5/5S and we would need only our phones (with bluetooth connection) which would serve as offline maps storage and map background image generator. Just like that we could have proper navigation with maps only depended on gps. I would like to know if it is possible? (PS I wrote the same thing on routeCourse app)

Hi Ivan, there are some open questions that we are looking into as whether such a scheme is feasible, as we started to think along these lines as soon as we launched V3 of dwMap, and especially when we launched the companion phone apps for Premium last week. We have many of the necessary platform pieces in place, but it's not clear yet whether there is a feasible way of doing this within the constraints of the Connect IQ platform.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
