Excellent - can't believe this is not standard Garmin software. I can find routes on MTB Project, Hiking Project, Trailforks, etc and download to phone, open the file with this, and wirelessly transfer it to my watch. Garmin's way forces you sit down at a computer and wire in your watch. When you are out in the woods, you don't have a computer or a wire. I really wish you would make this for iOS. I show it to my friends (who all have iPhones) and they love it. But since they have to go through the Garmin software (sit down at a computer, download Basecamp, learn how to use it, wire in your watch, etc.), they just never do this and miss out on what is the coolest and best feature of the Fenix watch - the navigation feature.

I haven't found any explanation/documentation "Press Start/Menu" where ? "Getting track list" :I've tried with several different files in my download directory) always : "Connection failed" That's pity because we need this feature: download track to GPS Test made with a Oregon 700 and Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 / Androïd 7.0

Who would have thought a user might want to import a gpx course on the go when they dont have a laptop. Brilliant, thank you!

March 17, 2019 | Version V5.5

Funktioniert leider nicht mit aktueller Firmware 2.5 des GPSmap 66st und Samsung S9. Verbindung klappt, bricht aber nach einiger Zeit mit Fehlermeldung ab

Desde que instale la versión 7 del firmware del Garmin en mi edge1030 no se conecta. Tengo que cerrar el wifi para que lo haga. Por esto pongo 3 estrellas, si se soluciona pondré 5

Couldn't figure out why it wouldn't connect to my phone... You need to make sure WiFi is off on your Garmin...

V5.5 works nicely with my GPSMAP 66 and my Samsung S8. A big "Thank you!" to the author of this useful tool

Fantàstic !! Funciona perfectament b un 645 músic i un Samsung A5 2017. Gràcies a aquesta aplicació puc seguir tracis sense les molestes indicacions que tapen la pantalla i molesten més que ajuden.

Works as advertised ... an easy way to import a gpx track onto my Edge 520 Plus from mobile. Maybe make the import folder configurable?

Doesn't work on edge 1030 and xperia xz2. Opening gexporter on phone and then clicking menu on gps. Keeps showing 'connection error'. Bluetooth is working and works fine in garmin connect mobile.

Working great, app and widget. problem with importing waypoint from gpx files. Is there any plan to make this app for fenix 3/3HR?

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.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
