I have a free RWGPS account and in the past I've always been able to download pinned routes or your recent routes with cue points but it seams that this is no longer possible. Could you comment on that? tks

Use the "contact developer" link if you have any questions or need help. Using reviews for this isn't a great idea. The course points ("cue points") download fine. The subscription level has nothing to do with it. IQ apps/widgets are downloading whatever RWPGPS provides. They can't change the file. If the course points are missing (but they are not missing), it would be because RWGPS isn't including them in the file. You won't see the course points unless "show course points" is enabled for the course. If you are downloading a "trip" (a ride saved to RWGPS), there won't be any course points in the file.

Fantastic! Great way to get RideWithGPS routes to my 530 wirelessly and on the fly! What a game changer for me. Create or select a new route and have it delivered straight to the 530 on the road! I love it!

This app allowed me to type in the RwGPS route number and download it directly to my 530. Super easy and intuitive. The route number can be seen in the webpage hyperlink of the route (via share or in the website bar). A 120 mile route took 100 seconds to download. A 20 mile loop took 20seconds. 5 stars for fast and easy use, much better than the alternative (downloading to my phone and saving it to Garmin then syncing to Garmin.)

Thanks. If you have a RWGPS account (even a free one), you can enter your account info in the app settings (through Garmin Connect Mobile). This lets you download pinned routes or your recent routes. That's more convenient that using the route number. The download speed is independent from the app (the app can't do it faster or slower). Using Bluetooth to download is on the slow side. One way of getting faster downloads (if you find it too slow), is to use a WiFi hotspot on your phone and connect the Garmin device to that network. WiFi is much faster than Bluetooth.

This app is perfect for me! I use it with an Oregon 700 and RWGPS. It makes it very convenient to transfer courses. Shame on Garmin for not integrating this in Connect like the watches and bike computers.

Finally, an easy and reliable way to get my courses from ridewithgps to the watch (download by number - tested & validated)! Tomorrow I'll check if the courses' tbt navi is functional in this download

The FIT file you download is the exact file you download manually from RWGPS. You can enter your RWGPS account info in the settings to get access to your own private routes or member-only routes of clubs you are a member of.

Great alternative to Sendpoints!
