Very good app, makes my Forerunner 235 a great navigation app for trailrunning. Also for city run during business trips. Making a route is super easy, I have upgraded to premium to be able to share gpx files. Once needed helpdesk after change of phone, within 10 min got correct instructions. Very happy user.

The essential app. I've used it on my Vivoactive, Vivoactive HR, Forerunner 235 and now a Fenix 5. Excellent response from the dev for advice and enhancement requests.

December 2, 2019

Have not had much opportunity yet to use this app on my new Vivoactive3 watch. But it works! A special thanks to Marcus for a speedy response to a question regarding getting my watch paired properly.

December 2, 2019

Special thanks for the support. Had a problem with placing routes on my watch but the support line helped me out. Very fast and to the point

Would be 5* if the dashboard was easier to use but can’t complain once the route is in the Garmin. It shows me which direction I’m supposed to be headed, with prompts. Great customer service too.

Had an issue, emailed Marcus, and received a response within minutes. On a Sunday evening! Problem was user error, but I appreciated th quick response.

November 30, 2019

Downloaded the app and was having some problems understanding. I contacted the support email and Marcus got back to me within hours. He took the time to answer all my questions and clarify everything.

It doesn't work on my for runner 235, don't know maybe I am doing something worng but despite I linked my watch to dyanimic watch web-site by following the procedure via code, after I was linked it said, no bluetooth to connect on your phone, but am i supposed to use my phone or my pc??? do I have to connect my watch via cable ??? plus when i try to import a gpx map to send to my watch it doeans't allow me to do that as it asks to upgrade to premium, I have tried several times watch tutorials maybe I am seems very complicated and it doesn't work at all with my for runner 235.

App works flawlessly on a GARMIN VivoActive HR watch. Map transfer from the web site to the watch works very good. I wish the data fields layout of the screens were available for non-premium users too.

Note that 3 pages with the 12 most useful data fields are part of the free basic version of dwMap. Premium adds the ability to customize and choose additional field choices.

Great application! Very easy to set-up and use! Extremely user-friendly!

For me (owning a Forerunner 235), this app is the best thing since sliced bread. Why? Because it enables me to do something that I couldn't do before: follow routes. Often, I find interesting trails as GPX from different sites, or I download the GPX for a route for an upcoming competition. With dwMap, I can just download the track on the Forerunner, and it'll show me position and course and the whole track graphically. This makes it super easy to follow the track, and see when I got off-track. 5 stars.

Installed the app but all it says is ”no bluetooth to garmin connect on your phone”. Ive got a garmin forerunner 235.

Super schneller Kundenservice.

Really does the trick on the Garmin Fr235. Fulls the navigation gap perfectly. Slightly laggy but still works well. Has se great native data fields too. Great app.

The application is super useful and the developer is very responsive to questions and issues. I had a minor problem with trail names being displayed, and he had it fixed within hours of my reporting the issue. Thanks!!!

Application qui fait le job avec une jolie interface. Simple d'utilisation et qui ne plante jamais. Je la conseille vivement et si quelques interrogations vous taraudent le concepteur vous répond très rapidement et d'une façon très pédagogique. Une application indispensable.

November 10, 2019

I tried this app. The user interface is excellent, even on mobile it is great to use. Support is incredibly fast and helpful. Thank you. Jan from Czech.

Compliqué. Il faut passer par url pour créer et lancer un itinéraire. Pas d’application smartphone alors que payant. Pour stoper un itinéraire sur la montre je n’ai pas trouvé. Pour le gps je regret
