I had it on my Edge1000 and it worked great! Now switched to Edge 1040, I hope it will become available for the 1040 as well

This! Thx ArtemArtem "For those, who are seeing only red tiles - pay attention to the longitudes and latitudes in the settings. I did a same mistake, at the generator site first string is latitude, second is longitude, however in the settings of the App in Garmin express it's switched. After switching it there everything is green around as it had to be from the beginning!

Works on head unit as good check for tile boundaries, but have tried many times to get the map string to work, just end up with red screen and one green dot. Tried generating on my old windows PC and on current Macbook, same result. Kmkl file is 380kb, works on in google maps, so not corrupted. nearly 6000 tiles and 33x33 max square. Any suggestions?

Good, working after some struggles! For those, who are seeing only red tiles - pay attention to the longitudes and latitudes in the settings. I did a same mistake, at the generator site first string is latitude, second is longitude, however in the settings of the App in Garmin express it's switched. After switching it there everything is green around as it had to be from the beginning!

It looks like a great tool, unfortunately I am not able import KML file (the map under generated string looks good). After import it looks good in my Garmin Edge 830, but after getting GPS, it shows my position -1489/-1819. dot is a decimal separator and another character couln't be writen. But my question is, should the Garmin remember the last tiles ? I have it always red on the start. No history. Anyway it's useful, I like it

I really loved this app on my old 520, and hoping there's going to be an update to make it compatible with the new Explore 2. Thanks for all the developments!

I can't seem to get the app installed on my Garmin 830. I see the app in my Garmin Express and IQ connect app, but it's not under the IQ list on my device. I have also configured the settings, so not sure what else I can do. Do you have suggestions maybe? Thanks!

This has been a great help on Edge 1030 rides. I hope the developer can create a 1040 compatible update.

Super data field. Unfortunately not compatible with the Edge 1040. Please also make it available for the 1040

I can't get the map string to work. I get one green square in the corner of the map (1 in the string) and everything else red (0 in string). I've followed the instructions, several times. Always the same result.

Does the string-generator already show you the wrong map, or does it happen after the settings are uploaded to the app? If it is the first, then there is either something wrong with the KML file, or with the home-coordinates (e.g. interchanged latitude with longitude, or wrong decimal separator)

I'm awarding three stars because the grid display is useful on its own for confirming certain hard to reach tiles I've gone out of my way to get to. Unfortunately I can't go any higher as importing explored tiles is not working properly for me and the app doesn't seem to remember tiles from one ride to the next either.

have been happy to use this for a number of years to compliment other mapping on my garmin - has helped me check i've crossed into a tile however i've moved over to a Wahoo bolt so hoping there is a way to use the app there....

Excellent, well done and thanks Tomasz. It worked first time on my 520 :)

There are still problems with the map string. Using Garmin Express doesn't seem to copy the lat/long or map string to my 1030, and it only works with very small map strings using the Connect IQ iOS app. It won't allow me to copy my max cluster string over. I hit save and I get a 'sorry this page is not available' page on the garmin app. I have had to shrink the area of the map string generator meaning the boundary tiles are missing. Is there any way to back up the map string generated from the app, I had to reset my 1030 and have to start from scratch again as can't use the map string generator as desired. I'm thinking ahead for next time this happens.

It was not possible for me to create a valid entry for the home coordinates in the GarminConnect/apps/rideeverytile/settings mask under MacOS to place a current kml file on the Garmin. There is probably a syntax conflict or bug? It is not possible to enter a dot - and a comma is not accepted as a valid keyboard character. Then I tried it under Windows - it works there without any problems. Useful tool!

Did not have the map string issue (Feb 11 2021). Works like a charm!

Thanks! I can confirm, that it works as intended for me as well (Feb 14 2021)

I had the same problem as named in the other reviews: only red tiles. It seemed the kml file didn’t fit. I’ve tried several times on my Macbook with the same disappointing result. Today I tried again on a Windows computer and now I can say it works well. So in my opinion the app only works with a Windows computer.

Pretty useless : I followed the procedure ( to generate a string, but it is too long according to Garmin Express. Which means all my squares are red. Actually, they all become red whenever I switch my Edge 520 on to go for a ride... Which is of no help for veloviewer tiles, and not much help for tracking tiles as a rule anyway. Sad, because despite a spartan interface (very much to my liking), it seems it might have been great to use it as a on field complement to track tiles. Maybe the app could load the string from a file deposited on the edge instead of as a string from the IQ interface ? Or even, work out directly from a .kml file as downloaded on Veloviewer ?

If you still want to give it a try: Garmin seems to have changed something, and (at least for me, Feb. 14th 2021) the generation of the map-string works again.
