The firmware of the Fenix 3/3HR does not have the required functionality.

Works as described - but notice - you need to have the gexporter to be be installed on your android.

Una gran ayuda para pasar directamente del teléfono a tu dispositivo las rutas que te has descargado. Sencilla, práctica y funciona

I don't have an Iphone or Ipad. Buy me one. Is this why you give this only three stars?

Amazing! I can't believe Garmin don't support this sort of functionality natively. I use this in combination with Google Maps and to create a gpx file with walking directions to follow on my Fenix 5 -- super useful when travelling in an unfamiliar city.

November 4, 2017 | Version V5.3

Finally a simple way to get routes onto my fenix

Du bist der beste!!! Schade das garmin nicht in der Lage ist so was zu bauen. Herzlichen Dank

August 19, 2017 | Version V5.2-upd

Perfekt und Vielen Dank - Das hätte ich von Garmin erwartet.

July 25, 2017 | Version V5.2-upd

Best solution to create tracks and send those to the watch while out and about. Astonishing that Garmin Connect does not have this feature.

July 23, 2017 | Version V5.2

Le faltaría poder enviar al Gps archivos en TCX con roadbook. Para archivos en GPX genial.

July 18, 2017 | Version V5.2

Best app so far, as garmin is completely missing course creation. Great, work.

Just installed it and uploaded a route in seconds from ViewRanger. Need to go for a run now but so far so good.

This and its companion Android app work brilliantly (Edge 820, Android Marshmallow). They focus on this task with no overheads - the coding must be excellent. So: download a gpx on the phone from eg Strava into the phone's Downloads folder, Bluetooth on for both devices & paired, start the app on the phone & see the gpx file listed, check settings eg cycle speed 25kph, start the app on the garmin, see the file and download it into the Garmin.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
