Hi, I would like to write my question/suggestion here. As fenix 5 supposedly has memory problems for storing maps and maps are not supported, I guess your app works by not storing map data on fenix 5 but instead it overwrites data when generating new background map image (which phone downloads from internet). But if that is the case, why isn't it possible to make an application which would have the possibility to download and import high detail map onto your phone and store it for offline use, then do the same thing - send background images (of small size) to fenix 5/5S. That way we could have maps on our fenix 5/5S and we would need only our phones (with bluetooth connection) which would serve as offline maps storage and map background image generator. Just like that we could have proper navigation with maps only depended on gps. I would like to know if it is possible?

Hi Ivan. Thanks for your review and for your suggestion. You're correct in your analysis, and it would indeed be a great feature. However, to the best of our knowledge, it is currently not possible to implement. As you probably realised, the images are not downloaded and sent to the watch by the companion app, but from the Garmin Connect app (this is why the companion app is optional). We cannot create a buffer of images on the Garmin Connect app, and companion apps are currently not allowed to send images to watch-apps. Cheers!

Send opntion not work on my device. I made my route by Android app. Maps r.485 and try to send my route to Fenix 5 but no any update on my watch. It's very un-user friendly app. No any error, information.

Thanks for the review, Ozro. Please check if the Bluetooth connection between your phone and watch is working fine. Our suggestion is that you open the Garmin Connect app, confirm that the devices are syncing, and leave it running in background. Then open the r.485 app on your phone and on your watch and try to send the route. We suggest that because the message is ultimately sent by the Garmin Connect app (it makes the bridge), and it may be that the operational system on your phone is killing it when it isn't active.
