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.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
