Extremely disappointed in the connectivity between this app and the Edge 1030. At the price I expect the model to work and work seamlessly. Cannot get Strava Routes to work whatsoever. The closest that I get is signing in on Stava to complete connection and then it says there is a router error. Very disappointing and very close to chucking it out the window and moving to wahoo products.

Works great on my 520 with one minor issue - If I opt to “Navigate to route”, it isn’t clear what button I press to start the route.

Somewhere on line there has to be a way of fixing this diabolical waste of breath.

Me funcionaba y de repente en mi forerunner 935 me sale ( error code 2050) adiós a una buena aplicación anteriormente.

hello all. in order to make this rather quirky app work (if you are not able to log in or cant see routes) here's how to do it. firstly unlink strava and your third party login (facebook or google) To do this firstly you need to know your email. go to strava settings and select change email. this will show what email your account uses eg my google mail account login is however it very specific as strava belives its I used this. step two open strava in browser and go to the login screen select forgot password and follow the steps. when this is done yeeeaaayyyy you can log in and get the app to work. for those that are confused about routes. previous rides don't save as routes you have to select to save a ride as a route. you can also create your own routes which will all become available once saved. having seen the reviews I gather the majority of you don't have the technical knowledge of why it works this was so I will summerise. facebook and google have extremely strict security protocols (its not garmins fault quit ya bitchin) secondly just cause you ride a route doesn't mean it saves as a route its just a piece of history so strava are not going to save your routes for you because that just stupid. so yall follow these steps and get ya bibs un bunched saddle up and maybe adjust your attitude towards developers. because no party is to blame but the user in this case. much love hugs and kisses ash xoxoxox

Had the same expired session error as many below. Followed these steps: scrolled till I got the hamburger-logo where I could log out. Closed the browser. Then started the connect session again, now I could log in into Strava, worked like a charm further.

It simply does not work. "No routes found," despite numerous attempts at logging in and syncing between my Strava and Garmin accounts. Looking at the other reviews left recently, this seems like a common problem...

April 25, 2019 | Version 4.6

ne fonctionne plus depuis l'avant dernière mise à jour de garmin ... sur edge 1030 . avant le bug, l'application était vraiment pratique , dommage ... peut être une maj chez strava pour bientôt ( faudrait un peu s'activer quand même !!)

Like everyone else, this app does not work on my Garmin 820. I hope the developers do something about this soon. I managed to get passed the ‘your session has expired sign in ‘issue. However it doesn’t work after this stage either. Now all I get is loading, then it says ‘No routes found’. Well I have hundreds of rides on Strava and it can’t find any. I also pay for strava so that should not be an issue. All I will say is don’t waist your time downloading it and trying to get it to work wait for the developer to fix it.

Using this with my Strava account, I can easily start routes on my Edge 1000! I have not connection errors, but I'm using a regular email and password as login, not Google of Facebook connect.

Ho un garmin fenix 5s..come faccio a contrassegnare come preferiti i percorsi dall'app strava..?..accedo a strava road dal garmin ma poi mi appare l'avviso "nessun percorso trovato"

Useless. Just bought a new 810, one of my main purposes was to put my strava routes on the device. But It’s not working. Like other users I get the message ‘your session expired’ on my phone, when I try to authorize Strava. I thought this was gonna be a walk in the park and I would be up and running in no time, but it is not working at all. Come om Garmin!?

After Garmin v7.3 update Strava sync stopped working and can not get it work for the past hour. Garmin marketing should pay attention to this - my opinion about Garmin has been going down (slow software, terrible touchscreen sensitivity, disfunctional software updates) - no Garmin products for me next time.

April 6, 2019 | Version 4.6

Cannot get it to work, the whole Garmin experience is shit. Usually takes half an hour to get it to connect to my phone. I expected better from the new Edge 1030

April 5, 2019 | Version 4.6

Can't log in to this through the app because I use my Gmail to log in to strava?

So easy to use, no more cables. Find it best to start the route I select then stop it. The route is then stored on the device and you can select from your routes. This helps you for out on the road if you don't fully follow the route. When its loaded this way auto rerouting works, straight from Strava it does not. Its the only way I now load routes on. I'm using Edge 100.

Unable to open on Garmin Fenix 5X Plus. Message saying "Open the GCM App on your phone", try to log in but receive error message from Google. Very annoying, not what I was expecting from Strava, Garmin nor Google. Please post a fix soon.

March 26, 2019 | Version 4.6

GPS can not be activated on my 735 XT. It is just a useless app without it

Getting the same bug that all the preceding folks are reporting. Open it up on device, go to mobile app, attempt to link and... "your session expired". But really, is that what the user needs to trouble shoot on their own to get this to work? While Garmin can be blamed for lots of things, i'm gonna guess this one is firmly in Strava's court. For pete's sake you're onto raising a K round, you won't be a unicorn or a dragon, just accept you're a small niche endurance fitness app and put money back into keeping already built products working. Whatever the hell you're wasting capital on is beyond me. But it sure as hell ain't engineering. Update 1: Just found a work around that i've had to use when syncing GC with Strava on device a week ago. After I received the "your session expired" message i logged out of that session of strava then went back to the 520, re-enter the strava route syncing process, received the the prompt to continue on the mobile app and then logged in and approved access. _Now_ it works. Update 2: seems if i want to cement the file on the device (i.e. not need the phone to still be connected) i need to hit navigate route (with phone connected) and then select an activity profile. it starts to compile the route and it's at this point that the ride route now is anchored in the navigation section of the device and i can disconnect the phone.

Like many other Garmin experiences I have had, this is pretty consistent - poor experience. Unintuitive "Open the GCM App on your phone" which I did - and said it needed to be authorised by Strava - which then says "Your session expired. Please log in again." Have tried many things including logging out and logging in again - nothing.. and like my other experiences, this has been a 1-star. Garmin, please do something about it...

Doesn't work. Strava reports "session expired" IQ app just waits with the screen "To complete...."

I had problems downloading routes to my Garmin Edge 1030. I was connected and could see my routes. But when I "clicked" one of them nothing happened. After a couple of seconds I got an IQ icon with an yellow exclamation mark. I just realized that it was a issue regarding my naming of the route. Maybe the name was too long or included non acceptable characters. I changed the name to "65 km" and it instantly worked.

February 22, 2019 | Version 4.5

Worked fine before, but stopped working recently. Error 400. Updates both Connect IQ app, as well as Garmin Express to no avail.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
