Brilliant app which is a great work around for something Garmin really should allow natively. Had an issue with the app not loading on my watch but it was a garmin problem when I investigated. However Routecourse support was excellent

Fantastic app, works just as described. Great for getting courses from my iPad onto my Edge 830 when on the trail

Route.Course and the associated website Dynamic.Watch there are my standard applications for planning bike tours or hikes and then transferring them to the Garmin Oregon 700. I've been using this app for three years and haven't seen anything better. For me the most important navigation app! Thanks to the developer!

I am using this app in combination with the dynamic.watch website since years and I am very happy with. The functionalities are reduced to the optimum so you get even more than usual for the price. Also the developer was so kind to add "alpenvereinaktiv.com" as route source for the "Saving Route" Chrome Extension. It just took 3 days. Very good support and many thanks to Marcus.

I have struggled getting my own cycling routes loaded onto my Oregon using my Chromebook when away in our touring caravan. Then by chance I discovered this and up to now all problems solved. Great route planning section and routes loaded instantly onto device when synced. Very pleased. I have loaded the datafield app as well and had a slight problem but Marcus sorted it virtually instantly so if you have a problem raise a query through the help system and I'm sure you'll be sorted out. After a bit more testing I think I will be subscribing to this. Thank you and well done on creating a cracking little app

This is the best app I've found for managing routes on my Garmin Edge 830. The tight integration with the dynamicWatch web site as well as several other route planning sites makes it a great resource for organizing, planning, and even making quick route changes when already on your ride. There is no longer any need to export routes to GPX files and then manually import them into Garmin Connect or copy them directly to your Edge device with a USB connection. The combination of the dynamicWatch web site and this app handles all that for you. There is also continuous, active development to add new features. The development team is very responsive to feedback as well.

Solid, reliable app. Easy and quick to load routes to your device. Responsive developer. This is my go-to route app. Highly recommended.

This is an excellent route planning website that is as good as an app when used on a phone or tablet. I use this with an Edge Explore and GPSMAP66. And the ease of getting routes from dW to the devices is impressive. The snap to road and footpaths trails is accurate and quick and for me the Premium option is real value for money with the ability to see my planned route on OS maps to check rights of way etc by toggling between map types. I have used the support once and had the initial response and subsequent responses back within 24hrs.

I've been using the dwMap related apps for a while now (more than a year) and have been fairly happy with them. They play very nicely with the Garmin products I've used them on, primarily Garmin Vivoactive 3 watch and to a lesser extent the Garmin Edge 530. I frequently use the Chrome browser extension to load maps to my devices from the 3rd party site connectors, mostly MTBproject.com and it usually works seamlessly and with minimal effort. I recently did run into an issue and reached out to customer support and got a response same day that quickly identified the root cause as a password change I made in the mtbproject site. Once I re-linked the account with the updated credentials it was working again right away. Happily recommend routeCourse and the other dwMap applications.

It's great when it works, but I can't find a way to delete any course I've downloaded from the list from my Edge 1030plus. No matter what I do they all show up in an ever-increasing list and it's now more of a faff than just connecting my GPS to the computer.

Please contact us at [email protected] and we'd be delighted to help you troubleshoot your issue. (We might not spot a tech support question within a review here for a few days, but we respond very promptly to emails.) routeCourse downloads routes the standard Courses list on your Edge and you can delete them from there as with any other downloaded routes/courses.

Klasse App! Wirklich nützlich, um Touren mal schnell aufs Garmin zu übertragen. Leider hat irgendwann die App nicht mehr funktioniert. Wie mehrfach berichtet, habe ich einfach eine Mail an den Support geschrieben. Erstaunlicherweise wurde mir direkt und mehrfach unkompliziert geantwortet, das Problem war schnell gelöst und jetzt funktioniert alles wieder bestens - obwohl ich kein zahlender Kunde bin/war. Bin begeistert! Von der App und dem Support. Alleine für den guten Support werde ich jetzt auch ein Premium-Abo kaufen.

routeCourse is the best app on my Fenix 5X and Oregon 700. I highly recommend this setup for both, transferring existing gpx tracks to your device or creating and editing tracks via the dw web planner. I can do all of this wireless on my mobile phone, no need to be at home on a desktop computer nor do you have to use the cumbersome Garmin connect interface. Really love this app!

As the dwmap app, it is the best apps I have in my forerunner 645 for hiking and in my edge 530 for btt. I use the Web planner and I create a route in a couple of minutes. In my forerunner I use the dwmap app to follow the route, as I like much than the garmin app. The zoom is fixed in different levelsi see the height profile and where I am.. Its really incredible when you learn how to use it. The help and manuals are great in the web

This is the best app on my Garmin Devices. It makes life so much easier. Transfer tracks from the internet wireless to my devices, plan on the go... Marcus is including SwissTopo. The combination of being able to do routing in combination with SwissTopo Rastermap is unique. I love this feature.

How to make life REALLY simple - plan the routes in Ride with GPS, 'pin' them and Voila! They appear in my Garmin 1030Plus thanks to the magic of routeCourse. No worries about file format, downloads or anything. And routes can stay in the cloud till needed. Lots of new features all the time - many of which I dont need, but paid for a lifetime subscription just because it's such a time saver. Marcus is super-quick with support - notwithstanding the 8 hours between europe and the USA! A+++. Some apps come and go - this is one of my go-to favourites

Makes getting the most out of my Garmin devices easy - less time messing with tech wondering if it's worth it and more time riding. Great customer service too. I use the desktop app to plan all my rides and then when I'm done it syncs to Strava and Garmin Connect seamlessly. Happy days - highly recommended!

Impressed how this route tool can import my gpx files (drawn in a 3rd party app) and then work with my Garmin Fenix 6 to guide me on a route during an activity managed by the watch. Nice integration. Means i get the integration of the watch with other apps like Strava tracking my activity, but that i get the simple handling of course import using RouteCourse, which i struggled to do elsewhere from GPX files where i needed maps with trails to create specialist routes. Developer was each to reach out to and provide guidance when I had some questions. My workflow is use OutdoorActive to draw and export GPX - Use DWMap website to import, and then use DW phone app to push the route to my phone after a refresh. Nice guideline documents on the website too. Also appreciate the MapField data screen you can add to the activity as part of purchasing the pro version of this app.

I recently purchased a Garmin Edge 830, installed Garmin Connect, then loaded routeCourse on the 830. After apparently setting up my account on dynamic.watch, I managed to add one of the community routes from your site to the 830. Now a couple of nights later when I open the routeCourse app on the 830 it keeps wanting me to enter another 8 digit code into your website, as if I don’t have an account set up. Contacted Marcus, who promptly responded with two suggested solutions, the first of which worked. Great to have a responsive developer.

I have been using the amazing DynamicWatch and RoueCourse apps for years on my Garmin Watch. The browser app for planning routes is absolutely fantastic! On pc, but also on my phone. I had an issue getting the RouteCourse app running on my new Garmin 1030 Plus. After fiddling around for a couple of hours I contacted Marcus, and received a reply with the exact right solution the same day. Great service!
