My favorite app just got better! Now you can both see and create routes with navigation from Open Street map. Thanks to Marcus incredible strive to develop excellent software (and to Graphhoppers routing) you can create routes in your favorite area both with Google or Open Street Map. I love the way to create and transfer routes from my iPhone iPad or computer and not having to connect the Edge with cables. No need to memorize difficult step-by-step instructions. Just point out the route on my iPhone screen and press save. When firing up my Edge the newly created route is ready to be ridden! It couldn´t be easier. Navigation from Open Street Map made a big difference for me and my mtb friends. I´m glad that I proposed this option for you and I´m impressed that you developed it in just a few weeks time! I´ve never seen such fast development that is soo useful. Marcus also have extreme service in answering mails etc. Price for premium account is no issue at all. Go for it!

I purchased the premium version of this app. I frequently use strava GPX files to explore new trails and this app just makes this process so much easier with an option to even edit the route prior to uploading to my watch. I love the countdown to the next turn or intersection. Works as advertised. Love it! Thankyou!

I LOVE THIS APP!! Wish I used it before. b/C I struggled getting courses to my Edge without the use of a PC. Within Garmin Connect this task really sucks. But with this web app everything is a peace of cake. $10 per Year of premium features is definitely worth the price. My wishlist: * Better routing: checkboxes for: exclude Mayor Highways, exclude bike lanes, exclude non-tarmac, ... * for MountainBike Planning: Show surface of track on Elevation Profile (Hint: I am talking about the track_type of OSM Maps) * Pls explain what "Bike routes" option on the map does?

Thanks for the great review! The "Bike Routes" option on the maps turns off and on the bike routes overlay on the Google Maps and satellite layers (so has no effect when viewing OCM). We are also adding GraphHopper routing which we think will be popular.

Incredibly easy to use interface, create maps quickly and have them downloaded to your Fenix 5X watch in seconds. Then just use them in an activity like you would a normal course. Great idea and execution!

Easy web interface to create routes on an iPad. Super easy transfer of such routes to a Fenix 5x. I had some problems with import of 3rd party GPX files (which turned out to be a user error!) and emailed the developer's support address; had a helpful response within an hour and he quickly helped me understand how to do the imports. Very impressed, so have now paid for the premium version.

Thx for this great app! It's the missing piece I was lookign for. Transferring routes to an Edge is kinda nightmare with Garmin Connect. With routeCourse it's pretty easy, especially with its interfaces to other route planners like Ride with GPS. Just one small thing: it relies on an BT connection to the smartphone running GC mobile. If there's WiFi available it could be used also without phone. I had some cases where I had WiFi but no smartphone so I couldn't download new routes. Nevertheless it's worth the five star rating.

Thanks for the great review. We'd love to be able to have a WiFi option, but the Bluetooth connection is actually the only way for an app like this to work. On the Garmin platform the connection to data services is managed by Garmin Connect Mobile on the phone, hence the phone and the BT link are necessary.

Perfect--exactly what I've been looking for. Makes course creation (and editing) so simple. So useful, in fact, that I paid for the premium version.

This is a very smart and promising app that makes up for some of the shorcomings of Garmin Software. It is not easy to set up, but once it is done, it is very easy to grab routes originating from different platforms and send them into a Garmin EDGE unit for instance. IN my cycling club we need this a lot when we travel to ride in the mountains and don't want anyone to get lost. There is room for improvement with guidance to setup and with organizing a large number of routes. But allready it is a fantastic tool.

WOW !!! Just amazing ! no more USB cables to transfer routes. The only thing that would make this better is a smartphone app for creating routes rather than website, but still amazing

Exactly what I was looking for. I recently purchased the Forerunner 935, moving from the 735XT, and routeCourse is working great. Im able to navigate & understand each display within the app really well. :-)

This app is AWESOME!!!! Took me a little while to figure it out but after that I can load a map from my ipad or iphone in a matter of seconds !!! No more cables! No more need for a lap top or desk top!! Simply amazing! I ride out of town alot and now i can go to a local bike shop and download the trails they recommend right to my garmin at their counter! These guys were emailing me back at midnight with questions i had when i couldn't figure it out. I dont write reviews but if I could give this 10 stars I would! Thank you Marcus!

Fantastic app. Finally! I can now create a route and load it on my Garmin without using a computer. Great features: Create routes on phone or computer. Import routes from Strava. Over the air transfer to the Garmin with no computer and no cable. What an awesome advance. The only complaint I can make is the editor is just as (good) as all the other route editors out there. If you get it right the first time, then you're golden. If you need to make mods to a route because you put a finger dow in the wrong place, then the fun begins. I guess my fingers are too big. One really nice thing I haven't seen anywhere else is double click to remove a waypoint. So far, I can't figure out how to make major changes a route after a save. For example, I can't seem to move the start or end, or move a waypoint to change the course choice. Overall, a great tool.

Thanks for the great review! Editing a route is the same as creation--the begin, end and mid-point circle markers can be dragged freely. Contact us at info@dynamic.info if you need more clarification.

This is a great app that adds a functionality that Garmin somewhat does not offer. The Chrome extension is the cherry on top of the cake!

Works great. I would suggest the following enhancement: add add up down scroll buttons the the routeCourse app. I would like it to scroll a page at a time. Thanks.
