Excellent. Works perfectly and very easy to use. I can now easily transfer FIT files from my phone (where I create them in plotaroute.com). Highly recommended.

Hello there, I am getting "Connection failed" error after update to version 6.0.3. Until that version gimporter was working great. But know there is no reason to use it :(. I am using Garmin Oregon 700 with cooperation with Huawei P30 pro.

You have to disable WiFi on the Edge for the download. Sorry... Just found out lately.

Importuje gpx dobře, ale bohužel hodinky si trasu při navigaci přepočítají podle sebe a ignorují trasu kterou jsem chtěl jet.

Super App, funktioniert ausgezeichnet. Finde ich toll, dass sich jemand die mühe machte solche apps bzw. widgets zu programmieren, wenn es der Hersteller nicht schafft diese Funktion in seine App zu integrieren.

Great option to import GPX course to the Garmin, everything works fine (Edge 820 x Android 7). Thank you.

I tested it with my fenix5x and one czech map server GPX export and it looks it works OK. Course was imported with elevation data too. Looks good. Will it be possible to add folder selection? I am using my own data folder on SD card for GPX files. It will be great with folder selection possibility.

Ich hab das gleich für eine Tour für morgen ausprobieren müssen und es hat perfekt geklappt. Die Tour habe ich im Tourenplaner (Alpenverein) erstellt, von dort in meine Wolke geladen, dann aufs Handy heruntergeladen und so wie beschrieben auf die Fenix 5X übertragen. Dann in der App Bergsteigen die Einstellungen aufrufen und die Tour laden. Fertig! Danke für die Super-App!!!!!

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
