Rediscovered this app yesterday after getting into trail running and found I was able to download maps from my All Trails premium account and then import them into the DW maps which then gave me turn-by-turn navigation while I'm Trail running! Had some old routes from a few years ago that I couldn't delete so I emailed Marcus and he replied within 10 minutes with a solution, great customer service and a great product!

January 23, 2021 | Version V3.3.0063

Great app, it helps to see maps when I get off course. The directions I get in the premium version are great. Very good service!

Exceptional app and even more exceptional service. I'm a premium user as well and having the option to upload AllTrails routes/maps to my Garmin watch is a game changer!

Hi, I'am using dw mapp now about 1 year, I'am very satisfied because it is very usefull for hiking. A few days ago I choosed to upgrade to premium mostly because of the navigation prompts. This didn't work as I hoped so I contacted the helpdesk. Marcus, answered my mail within 1 day and now the prompts work great. So I am very enthousiastic about the app and very content with the support, many thanks. I allso tried the 3D preview, what a great feature!

January 7, 2021 | Version V3.3.0063

I have used this dwMap app (and the separate mapField data field) for two years now and they have been the perfect tools for planning my activities and keeping on course. Over those two years I have reached out to the developer twice for assistance and he responded quickly and professionally each time to promptly resolve the issue. I appreciate the great application and great customer service!

This is an awesome service all round and the dwMap app in particular. I have an FR935, but still use this app for runs: (1) because you can have a base map for navigation, (2) the navigation prompts are better/more reliable than Garmin's and (3) the workout alerts allow me to set a power window for my Stryd footpod to keep my effort steady on long runs. Only downside to using app is that Stryd data isn't written to the Garmin file so I have to do an offline sync from the Stryd footpod for the Stryd data after the run, but, given the advantages, this is a minor downside. Paid service is v good value for money and basically the reason I haven't switched to a Coros watch.

I use the app for years on a regular basis. I ran dozens of unknown tracks with the help of the watch navigation. It is one of my favorite features of the watch and the best app i use. It works fine and is very valuable for me. I am lifetime premium user and the money is well spent. There is only one thing i am not happy with: the limited numbers of waypoints in my fenix3 leads to deviations between real track and navigation path increasingly with track length. Windy tracks with 30km or more are not possible to find correctly without having a second glance on the map on the mobile phone. I ran the false way a couple of times because of that. Besides this issue the app is close to perfect. Good work.

after years of use I decided to "go premium lifetime". no regrets. its just great an turn by turn navigation way more helpfull than expected. thanks!

December 26, 2020 | Version V3.3.0063

Dommage qu'il n'est pas en français

December 23, 2020 | Version V3.3.0063

Very happy with the app if you have a problem the developer is very responsive to fix it all good thanks again.

Na even zoeken hoe het werkt is deze app prima. Premium is ook veel goedkoper dan Strava premium :-)

December 16, 2020 | Version V3.3.0063

So far so good. Very useful.

Very satisfied with the full version. Very useful to navigate on new pathways.

December 11, 2020 | Version V3.3.0063

Very happy. I have the free version for a while now. Maybe upgrade one day

I have been using this app for several years now on two different watches (FR235 and FR245). It adds mapping features that are usually only available on higher end watches and has been working perfectly from day one. Thanks!

December 1, 2020 | Version V3.3.0061

Excellente application! Je l’utilise avec ma Garmin venu et peut ainsi suivre des traces pendant mes courses. Facile d’utilisation une fois qu’on a compris comment fonctionne l’interface, car elle est assez brute et difficile à prendre en main. Cependant il y a un très bon support technique qui réponds très rapidement. Je recommande

$9.99 a month for map service

Developer Reply

Brian, I do not think you have entered this review for the right app? We do not offer anything for $9.99 a month. Most of our services, including route downloads to the dwMap app running on the watch are free, and although we offer a Premium option with extra features, it is $9.99 a year, not a month. Please contact us at [email protected] if you have questions about our app, dwMap.

Really useful app ! Support very reactive Worth spending some euros in this purchase. Using it on a Vivoactive 4

This app makes my Vivoactive 3 be the watch I always wanted it to be! I mountain bike a lot and try to ride new places as much as possible. A ride can get ruined pretty quickly if you have to pull out a map or phone every 2 minutes to figure out which turn to take. With Dynamic Watch I plan a route, then just follow the turns from my watch. I used it for awhile without paying for the subscription and it was good enough (probably 4 stars). Now I have the subscription and it is 110% worth it for the background maps and turn-by-turn directions. Importing new routes takes a bit of learning. But now that I'm used to it I can pull a route from Trailforks and have it on my watch in 3minutes, all from just my phone. I also had a great customer service experience. I thought there was an issue with the app and contacted the developer. He responded immediately and walked me through it (turns out it was user error on my part!). Can't say enough good things!

November 20, 2020 | Version V3.3.0061

Muy contenta. Tengo un Vivo Active 3 y con esta app puedo seguir y crear rutas muy bien. Sólo le hecho en falta que no tenga distancia restante hasta el final de la ruta. Por lo demás muy recomendable

Excellent App, really useful for downloading and following longer routes. Really quick support responses too: I had an issue after Garmin made an error in the VA3M firmware but this was responded to and overcome in no time whatsoever. A*

Just what I needed to get the most out of my Vivoactive 3. Plot the route on OS Map, export gpx and import into this. Tracked my route perfectly and meant I didn't have to look at phone or route guide book.

November 12, 2020 | Version V3.3.0061

Perfect for my Venu

November 12, 2020 | Version V3.3.0061

Perfect little App. Use it since one year, the price has more than paid off. Create routes e.g. on Komoot, download as GPS file, import into dwmap, refresh on the clock and off you go! Absolutely reliable route guidance without having to look at the display all the time. Perfekte kleine App. Nutze sie seit ein einem Jahr, der Preis hat sich mehr als bezahlt gemacht. Routen erstellen z. B. auf Komoot, als GPS Datei runterladen, in dwmap importieren, refresh auf der Uhr und los geht's! Absolut zuverlässige Routenführung ohne andauernd aufs Display gucken zu müssen.

November 11, 2020 | Version V3.3.0061

Brilliant little app, only had it couple days, can be tricky setting up, but a quick e ticket to support Nd they soon sorted me, and very quick response within 20mins. Great work all, One happy Customer.
