Wow -- this makes getting routes from most any source onto my Edge 520 soo much easier than it used to be. Very slick.

One of the best apps on the Connect IQ Store, hands down. After following the instructions to signup at the website and then linking your device, MapMyRun account (or other supported accounts), and my Garmin account its only a matter of quickly pasting in the URL to the route you want on your device. Works fantastic. On an additional note, I did need to contact Marcus (developer) for an oddity I was seeing on my route. He got back with me within minutes of my Facebook message to him and went beyond expectations to look into the issue. By far some of the best support I’ve had on a product. Even if you don’t need the features of the premium subscription, consider donating anyway to help support the developers efforts. For me I plan on moving to the $20 lifetime upgrade option. Thanks for the product and support Marcus.

very nice application ! very easy to use on a smartphone

Works as expected. Great app!

Very impressed from first impressions. Love the way that the names of longer routes are made smaller so you can actually see the name of the various routes rather than on the Garmin itself or on the Strava IQ app. Excellent thinking.

Great app for my Oregon 700. Very useful for downloading routes in the field with a smartphone. Ergonomic application. Works very well. Very responsive developer who provides effective help when needed.

Very well designed and intuitive. Definitely solves a missing feature from Garmin.

A great app with great customer support in the face of some challenges. I've had it for some time and it initially worked great. Some Garmin updates apparently broke it (Edge 1000) and it started asking to link with every connection attempt. I went back to the app page, and noticed that this was a known problem, that there were some troubleshooting actions to try (they didn't work), and that there was a support link for help in the event the troubleshooting failed. Customer support was amazingly responsive and helpful beyond expectations. App is now working exactly the way it is supposed to. Big contratulations!

Too bad I can only give this app 5 stars. It deserves 10. I initially had trouble linking my Garmin Edge 1000 and Garmin Connect account, but the developer was super responsive and quickly resolved my issues. The app is super easy to use and fun. I have successfully imported routes from several sources and downloaded them to my Edge 1000. I have imported routes from MTB Project, Trailforks and private Garmin Connect activities. This was all accomplished by using browser URLs. I did not have to deal with GPX files at all. Although, there is an option to import GPX files, but I found using URLs is much easier especially when using a smartphone (e.g., iPhone). I did this all by just using my iPhone and Edge 1000. There was no need to use my desktop computer or any cables. Using my iPhone, it was also able to create a custom route using the web site’s Route Planner. It was easy to use. I plotted my route points, saved the route and downloaded to it my Edge 1000. Again, no desktop computer or cables were needed (just my iPhone and Edge 1000).

I have no hesitation in highly recommending Dynamic Route Course. It works very well with a variety of Garmin devices. We do a lot of long distance routes e.g Lands End to John O'Groats cycle route as well as long distance walks. It has been quite invaluable. For example, on the 'End to End' cycle route whenever we came to a junction, I only had to glance at my watch to see which way to go. We never got lost and the system worked impeccably. For road cyclists especially it is one of those 'must have' items. We are about to undertake a long distance trek on the continent and I have in preparation uploaded all the routes as courses onto my Garmin Fenix 5x. A truly excellent app!

A very useful application for everyone who needs to upload GPS tracks from mobile phone to a compatible GPS device and is not having a PC or laptop at hand. I had some problems with establishing a link between a new Garmin 700 and iPhone (each time when routeCourse app was started, a new link was set), however by very responsive and competent support the problem was fixed the same day. In short : exceptionally useful app and great support.

Fantastic app for sending rides to a Garmin 820 without needing to connect to a PC.

September 26, 2017

This is the most useful app for Garmin devices, bar none! Being able to create and/or download existing routes without the need for a USB connection is invaluable. I've been using it on a 1000, and now 1030. A quick and easy process but remember to download the course *prior* to starting a ride or the activity must be stopped/ended. Customer service is outstanding with prompt and helpful replies.

Finally I can create routes on my phone and send them the my Edge 820 - brilliant!.

September 12, 2017

I used when traveling to Las Vegas, and I wanted to do a Red rock-canyon ride. This gave me the ability to create route and send it to my Garmin 820, without using a PC or laptop neither of which I had with me at the time. Was able to do it all on my phone. Additionally the support provided is remarkable, I've gotten fast replies to email support questions on weekends, holidays, etc.

Une solution passe partout quand on veut de la mobilité. iPhone ou Android cela fonctionne très bien, suffit d'être connecté.

September 11, 2017

This the first app in the Connect IQ Store that is really worth 5 stars. Simple, great functionality, and a real big inprovement on using my edge. A native app in the Apple appstore would be nice.

Having problem to download routes after Garmin Edge 520 firmware update. I twitted and got response a few hours later. But the problem wasn't solved. I emailed tech support for detail. They realized the issue is on Garmin. So they'd contacted Garmin right away and suggested me to wait a few days for newer update. Which I did. The issue was solved. Their response time was excellent.

I had the problem, that dynamic watch did not recognize my Oregon 700. So I had always to enter a now code for pairing the device with I asked the support for help. Within hours, I got a mail from the support with a to do list. But this was not succesful, so the support sent me a small file.prg for my Oregon 700, and now the communication between website and device is perfect, the device is regognized now without new pairing codes. Thanks for this phantastic support.

I have a Garmin Edge 1000 and I use this app to download my routes from RWGPS to the GPS unit. The app works great. When support is needed, the developer is very responsive to resolve the issue.

September 4, 2017

Great app. It makes the navigation function for my 5x perfect! The app did not work for half a day because of a firmware update. The support I got was great, and the app was up and running again on the same day.

September 3, 2017

The great route planning app. Simple, fast but powerful. After Garmin firmware update all problems was solved within some hours. Support answers and helps promptly (at weekend too!)

September 3, 2017

This is a must have app for your Garmin device.

September 3, 2017

Best app ever. I never wrote a rating in here but after the developer answered not even 5 hours after i wrote about the problem i can't not give 5 starts. Simply the best app fro transferring routes and decent mapview
