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.

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.

July 15, 2017 | Version V5.2

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.

Danke, danke, danke!!! Was habe ich nach dieser Lösung gesucht! Mein F5X und diese App sind das perfekte Gespann. GPX draufladen und los gehts; und das so extrem leicht zu bedienen. Von mir 10 Sterne!!!

June 28, 2017 | Version V5.2

Sehr gut, endlich bekommt man ohne mobile data seine Touren und Tracks aufs Gerät. Einfach aus dem Download Ordner von Smartphone zum Edge via Bluetooth synchronisiert. Perfekt für die Planung unterwegs

June 28, 2017 | Version V5.2

TOP - Bin begeistert !!!

June 11, 2017 | Version V5.2

I'm using, unfortunately the gimporter does not send * .tcx / crs courses, plotaroute does not generate * .fit, and * .gxp are not very useful. Please support the tcx courses!

June 9, 2017 | Version V5.2

I and my Fenix 5X love it :-)

June 7, 2017 | Version V4.1

Simple and great app, thanks a lot! Still strange that garmin doesn't include this function out of the box with garmin connect mobile.

June 5, 2017 | Version V4

Klasse - genau was bisher gefehlt hat - danke !!"

June 3, 2017 | Version V4

Super. Thanks :-)

June 3, 2017 | Version V4

Perfect, exactly enough to get the job done and nothing more.

June 3, 2017 | Version V4

super, vielen Dank! :-)

June 2, 2017 | Version V4

Funktioniert 1a.. Endlich tracks einfach vom Handy auf die Uhr spielen. Danke!

May 25, 2017 | Version 1.0

Funktioniert super, jedenfalls mit kleinen Tracks, kann es sein das es dort eine Größenbegrenzung gibt?
