As other reviews have said, this is a very handy widget to have as you can send POIs from Sendpoints even when an activity is running. However, I’ve had a few crashes that locked up my Garmin 830 but it generally only requires a reset to get you back and most times that has kept my current data intact so I can continue my activity without losing anything. The only improvement I could request is a proper keypad to punch in the numbers and letters instead of a basic scroll function. Fixing the bugs and keypad would make this widget a 5 out of 5.

Not sure why you are seeing the crashes. It might not be the app at all. A weak internet connection might also be the problem. I use the app (not widget) regularly on a 1030 without issues. Entering the numbers is not so hot but it’s what Garmin provides. I want to provide an alternative but it would be a lot of work.

Just brilliant!!! Use the app on my Edge 830 and MARQ Expedition. Quickest way to enter an address and generate a route to get there.

Wow, this is kind of the Holy Grail for navigating to locations on the Edge 520 Plus without ending a ride - a Swiss Army Knife of a widget. Great work!

Excellent app enabling downloads from multiple sources & being a widget has the added advantage of allowing it to be used when running an activity
