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.

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

Wilk, This sounds EXACTLY like the effect change we recently announced to bringing in PINNED not ALL Ride with GPS routes automatically. Please contact us at info@dynamic.watch 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 looks awesome! I can see this is going to be a much used app on my fr935.

This may be a bit premature, since I haven't actually used the course, but I was actually able to get the course loaded into my watch, something I have had no luck doing with Connect. I can't even get Connect to upload anything to itself, much less to my watch. I do 100 mile races and like to have the course loaded "just in case". I just assumed the files were too big, since I had issues with my Fenix 3 getting the entire course loaded. Fingers crossed this works for me. Thanks for this app.

A great way to upload routes to my Garmin Edge 520, especially when I'm travelling without a laptop. Doing it wirelessly is a great solution.

Been using for a couple of weeks now. 1. Great way of getting routes onto your Garmin. 2. Pay the extra and get Premium - the route planning is the best I've seen. It's able to follow Sustrans cyclepaths, and the MTB option allows you to follow bridleways. I'm impressed, as I've used several route planning apps over the past few years, and this is the best by far.

Please contact us at info@dynamic.watch and we'd be delighted to help you troubleshoot your issue.

This sounds like it might be related to the 14.70 Garmin firmware update on March 8, 2018.

It works great on my Edge 1000, but I am really missing it for the descent mk1. I just switched from my fenix 5 to the descent mk1, due to the diving feature. Will there be support for it?

Fabio, yes it's already build and being tested for the Descent Mk1. Please could you email us at info@dynamic.watch and we can send you it right away, ahead of its release into the store?

Great to be able to import gpx to my Fenix. Really a pity I need to go via a 3rd party homepage all the time. An app would be better. Direct into to watch from strava etc would be even better.

Note our website is fully mobile enabled, so although it's a "third party" site compared to Garmin, it's still super easy to pull it up on your phone browser and bring in a route from Strava or wherever just using your phone.

An excellent way to move routes/courses onto your Garmin 935. Just import them into the dynamic.watch website from anywhere (GPX, URL, etc), edit if needed... And they're available inside the routeCourse app to download onto your device! Beats importing, editing and sending via Connect, which can be glitchy.

Did the setup today on my Garmin Forerunner 935 and Edge 1000 within 5 minutes. Very easy. It works perfectly. It's now easy to download routes. Thanks for the good work.

Since the 14.60 Update on the Garmin Ege 1000 I get a IQ Error sign and the Egde 1000 shuts down.

Website route planner is the best I’ve used, very well designed for the small touch screens of phones. App then makes wirelessly downloading routes to my Oregon 700 incredibly easy.

Wow finally a simple way to get someone else's Strava activity as a route on my Fenix 5. Very well executed.

Fantastic app. This is a life (and money) saver. Enables excellent on the fly routing via your phone and the dynamicWatch website route creator. I was considering purchasing a Garmin 1030 for a pending overseas trip where I'll just be taking my phone and iPad and needed to be able to get new routes to my bike computer. Now I can keep my 520 :)

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 dynamic.watch 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.
