So excited to have podcasts on my Garmin. App is great, easy to use, and has all the podcasts I’m looking for. Once I sent a tech support email on a weekend and got an answer from a human (not auto email) within an hour! And my issue was fixed.

Super easy to use on my Vivoactive 4s and has the podcasts I wanted. Great app!

I do not see any music on my watch, how do I do that?

This app has worked well. Even the free version allows me to upload podcasts to my watch. I recently had a question about my queue loading and I got an answer and fix within the hour. That was a Saturday as well!

Cosas a mejorar el idioma que salga en español ,una app para iOS ,a veces tengo que sincronizar varias veces para conseguir todos los podcast y la calidad de sonido debería de ser mejor y eso que descargo en HD

I use this nearly every run. Syncs reliably and quickly. Plays back easily.

The best solution I've found for podcasts on my Fenix6X! I recently had a problem with auto-sync and reached out to the developer. He responded quickly and worked with me to solve the problem.

Totally frustrating. It won’t let me log into my account from my Garmin945. I’m logged in on my iPhone and online. Useless app. Harmon should drop it.

The trial period was ok. Clunky website and it would be better if the had a mobile app to make it easier to prioritise and manage feeds. Now that the trial has ended I can't connect to the app from iConnect to move/delete/re-prioritise. I had to uninstall and reinstall to get the connection working again. But at $5 per month, it's just not worth it when Spotify can play your podcasts for you. In this day and age it's an exorbitant price for what it does.

Use the free version to download bpm music only. Don't need auto refresh.

The app is buggy (not auto syncing when it's supposed to, requiring watch reboot to actually start playing, etc) and the pricing is straight up bonkers. The free version is practically useless, and the paid version is $5 a month. In a world where Netflix is $9, Disney+ is $6, and Amazon is free if you pay for shipping, $5 to kind of listen to podcasts when running is crazytown.

Works great. Though, giving the tariff, I am considering switching to Songlate as it can sync Podcasts through Google Play Music.

Cannot make it work. Garmin Connect app does not ask for login. Also, it is not very nice that they hide that you will have to pay to listen to more than one podcast.

In most cases, if Garmin Connect isn't asking for a login, that can be fixed by force-closing/re-opening Garmin Connect and/or restarting the watch. You can also ping us at [email protected] and we'll be happy to help out. In terms of pricing transparency, we're also open to suggestions, but right now we detail it on our homepage, our FAQ documentation, and in our ConnectIQ app store description.

Cool little app. much easier to navigate than spotify. If I want to listen to music I just switch back to my spotify app music playlist. Easy to download, sync and use. $5 a month is very reasonable. I will stick with this app.

Perfect app for all your podcast needs, easily sets me up for my long runs being able to load up podcasts over 2 hours long. Thanks to the Devs for making this possible

There are a lot of problems with this app. I’m not going to bash the developers but I do think gamin should step up and help them figure out how to make it work correctly. I currently have to reinstall almost every run to get a new podcast, and there is not a way to choose between runcasts and amazon music.

Hey Mark, if you hit us up at [email protected] we'd love a chance to help you out. We've had good luck getting folks squared away, especially recently now that we have access to more devices.

This works great and is an excellent solution to the mess that is Spotify podcast sync'ing. Between Amazon Prime for music and this for podcasts, have my media wants covered without needing to subscribe to Spotify. I appreciate the free option and the clarity around what's free and what's paid, both in the description (on ConnectIQ) and the dev's webpage. If other users aren't reading that material, it really doesn't seem like the dev's fault...

Really good App, happy to pay for it to keep it going. Giving it 4 Stars because the website is a bit clumsy when you search for podcasts or episodes. Would be good to invest in that. Synchronisation with Apple Podcast would be another amazing feature.

Melissa Butler

Good idea but I was surprised to find that you can only subscribe to one podcast unless you pay for a subscription. Don't bother downloading unless you're ready for yet another monthly fee.

Mitch Lock

Used frequently and love the app. However once you download you can’t switch between ru casts and Spotify. Annoying glitch.

Hi Mitch, we recently updated our docs at https://runcasts.com/faq to clarify how to switch music providers. That should help some, but if you're still having trouble, please contact us at [email protected] and we'd be happy to troubleshoot.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
