Worked great for the first 2 months I was using it with my Edge Explore, now when I bookmark a ride in Under armour's mapmyride it does not show up on my Edge Explore. I just found that there's an extension for google chrome that helps to make routeCourse work again. I opened my UA courses clicked on a course I wanted to make available then clicked on the Chrome Extension and all of my bookmarked routes loaded to my Edge Explore device through the routeCourse cloud. It's a little clunky and that is not obvious but it gets the courses loaded which is all that matters.

Looks great until it comes to actually using it. Fenix 5S just says “route calculation error” so pointless.

(We might not spot a tech support question within a review here for few days, but we respond very promptly to emails.) That sounds more like an issue with the watch's own route display function as routeCourse is just a downloader and hands the route (course) off to the built-in bike/run/hike apps to use.

I am so impressed with routeCourse. I found it very easy to get started -- I set up my new account on Connect IQ, installed routeCourse on my Garmin 520, and did my first download directly from Ride With GPS, all in about 5 minutes. Although I have yet to import a TCX file, I played around with the import functionality and it is straight forward and easy.

Thanks for the quick problem solving.

The routes I've saved all have the same name and it's a 'premium' feature to rename them. Pass.

Hi Tommy, 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 few days, but we respond very promptly to emails.) This is due to the first 16 chars of the name being the only way we can compare a route with the ones already downloaded to the Garmin, as there is no unique key available.

The import feature works quite good, even when using a tablet. On my forerunner I do not want to miss this app.

Easy and intuitive. So much better than using the device native way to add routes.

I was unable to load ridewithgps routes to my 520 Plus by connecting it to my computer. I found this app and it worked like a charm! I was about ready to return my Garmin until I found this solution. Great App!

June 15, 2018 | Version V1.2.0014

Great app does just what I need. Also great support from Marcus when I had a problem. Thanks!

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I only can see a few routes from Strava, like 3 o 4, not more...

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 few days, but we respond very promptly to emails.) With Strava you are only supposed to see your "starred" routes, so that sounds like it might be working as intended, as seeing one's full list of routes can be overwhelming.

Works for the Garmin Edge 520 Plus after I was provided with a Beta version almost immediately after contacting the developer. Thx!

Please see the note in the "What's New" section regarding the new Edge 520 Plus and contact us regarding getting a beta build of the app that should work on that model.

With great support from Markus got the app to work on 520 plus-the issue was non-responsive select button, which has appeared in another context not involving an app so is Garmin issue. This app takes care of the point-to-point on-the-fly mapping that the 520 plus lacks. Would give 5 stars but for two missing features: the lack of routing on the app itself-whether on the phone or a notepad (You must do this from the website. Not such a big deal) and the lack of automatically routing to the location you enter (The map centers where you enter but you have to physically tap the location). But no complaints on functionality of existing features.

Excellent app works a dream. First class assistance too from Marcus at dynamic watch as I had issues when I first installed this, turns out it was my Garmin. However, no question was too much trouble for them and with their quick responsesand I was pointed to a forum which had all the answers I needed. Great app and a great person behind it!

May 26, 2018 | Version V1.2.0014

Really great app, very easy route planning and transfer onto my garmin edge is straight forward and quick. I had some initial issues with set up which were quickly resolved with help via email. Very responsive. Highly recommended.

I changed my fr235 for a fr645, and begun using routeCourse instead dwMap. All I want to say is... wow!

Hi, I would like to write my question/suggestion here. As fenix 5 supposedly has memory problems for storing maps and maps are not supported, I guess your app works by not storing map data on fenix 5 but instead it overwrites data when generating new background map image (which phone downloads from internet). But if that is the case, why isn't it possible to make an application which would have the possibility to download and import high detail map onto your phone and store it for offline use, then do the same thing - send background images (of small size) to fenix 5/5S. That way we could have maps on our fenix 5/5S and we would need only our phones (with bluetooth connection) which would serve as offline maps storage and map background image generator. Just like that we could have proper navigation with maps only depended on gps. I would like to know if it is possible?

Hi Ivan, (and copying same reply as in the dwMap review) there are some open questions that we are looking into as whether such a scheme is feasible, as we started to think along these lines as soon as we launched V3 of dwMap, and especially when we launched the companion phone apps for Premium last week. We have many of the necessary platform pieces in place, but it's not clear yet whether there is a feasible way of doing this within the constraints of the Connect IQ platform. It would be of more relevance to dwMap than to routeCourse.

A totally brilliant app, all I need the USB cable, for now, is charging. No more messing with copy-paste or certain apps not putting the files in the right place. I totally recommend the Chrome plugin too. Plan your route in almost any browser package it seems and then click the plugin to send to this app on your Garmin.

May 5, 2018 | Version V1.2.0013

Service was working great, but from about 2 weeks - my routes from RWGPS aren't loading. RouteCourse sees only older routes (and I can download them) but newer routes which I created in last time - I can not see them in RouteCourse
