Terrible, it kept sending alerts to my forerunner 230 over and over, my watch must have vibrated every two seconds. I would try to dismiss and it wouldn't. I tried to uninstall the app, but it wouldn't. I had to reset the watch to remove.

Hi! Thanks for your review. This must be a problem with your device, not with the app. It's absolutely impossible to program a "feature" that avoids a Connect IQ app to be uninstalled. Regards.

I got a message saying “Thanksfor using r.485 apps. Unlock the app to remove this message” how to unlock it??

Thanks for the review. Please read the app description. Cheers!

Download works fine. The map feature works well with integration to smartphone. What I can not figure out, is how to import a gpx track via the app. Is there a video tutorial on how do this or maybe a step by step manual?

The app itself is cool. But cannot find a way to exit the app in vivoactive 3 chinese version. Confirmed with garmin and they confirmed the problem. However they found no problem in vivoactive 3 english version.

Thanks for the review, Thomas. Just some extra info I could gather: this firmware issue affected all Vivoactive 3 devices in the beginning (normally it exits as any other app, by swiping right). Garmin solved the problem with a software update, but maybe it didn't reach the Chinese version yet. So remain positive :-). As you could confirm, this isn't a problem of Maps r.485 specifically. It affects all Connect IQ apps.

iPhone 7 with IOS11/Fenix 5, just get a black screen "loading...", so app doesn't even start on the iPhone. According developer because I have another device not running the app (Edge 1000). If you have more than 1 device, this might not work for you. Not even tried to resolve, just blaming it on ConnectIQ platform.

Thanks for your feedback. I usually do it via iCloud, but I heard from users who succeeded doing it with Dropbox too. The file chooser is a very standard one, so I do not know what is going wrong on your device. Please let us know if you find a solution, then we can share the information and help other users having similar issues. Best regards

Hi. Thanks for your feedback. What's you device, by the way? There's a firmware issue affecting Fenix 3/3HR models. Garmin is aware of that and should fix in a next release. More info:
