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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 | Version V1.2.0012

This is a must have app for your Garmin device.

September 3, 2017 | Version V1.2.0012

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

September 2, 2017 | Version V1.2.0012

Great app, allows for a fast and easy route upload to my edge 520. Planning routes while riding dirctly on the phone is little bit fiddly, but thats mostly due to phone limitations. I also had a problem with the app recently due to new firwmware, however after contacting the author, he had a solution within hours! So after getting premium subscription few months ago, I'm totally not looking back.

The most recent Garmin firmware is causing this problem, but we are testing a workaround and will have it out shortly.

Simply doesn't work - installed on Edge 820 - linking works but I'm not able to download any course. Deinstallation / relinking etc. didn't help. So this is worthless stuff...

Used the app a few times now while running new courses using my Garmin 935. The app has been very responsive during my runs and a big help. The dynamicWatch support team has been very responsive when engaged.

Hello, my long story short with routeCourse and F5x. I was really upset because nothing did work after my first instalation. The support team instantly helped with patience and professionalism to figure what I did wrong, what went wrong on the 5x (maps). Finally i am a happy sportsman guided by an easy to use tool. awsome and really valuable for running, hiking etc.
