Is it possible to integrate /convert the application into the data field in some activity? For example, to make notifications from maps displayed during cycling activity in fenix 5 ? I

22 กรกฎาคม 2562, Alexis_Lecanu

It's in my roadmap when garmin will correct communication problems.

12 กรกฎาคม 2562

Super appli mais depuis quelques temps ne fonctionne plus. Message sur la montre vivoactive HR: IQ avec est point d exclamation .

22 กรกฎาคม 2562, Alexis_Lecanu

Pouvez vous me contacter via l'application pour m'envoyer des logs pour que je puisse comprendre le souci. Merci d'avance

11 กรกฎาคม 2562

Realllllllly good When’s the maps me

11 กรกฎาคม 2562, Alexis_Lecanu

Thanks for your feedback, I'm waiting for Garmin to fix the communication issues before starting the development for other browsing applications.

Excellent app! Great idea! Is it possible to make it for - it is offline map and it's more detailed for pedestrians. Also - support of transport navigation it would be very helpful! Thanks!

5 กรกฎาคม 2562, Alexis_Lecanu

Thank you, since Garmin will correct the communication bug I will develop the MapsMe version. for transport i just do not know how to do interface level.

Very good. Thank you.

Thank you

28 มิถุนายน 2562

Works perfectly every time!!

30 มิถุนายน 2562, Alexis_Lecanu

Thank you

25 มิถุนายน 2562

Works fine. You need to remember to turn on notifications in Google maps.

30 มิถุนายน 2562, Alexis_Lecanu

Thank you

nice app ... is it possible to track while using navigation ?

30 มิถุนายน 2562, Alexis_Lecanu

Yes in the settings you can ask to save the trace.

works perfectly on my fenix 5. The best I have ever tried. It would be great if it would run also on my Edge 820, that is where I need more an app like this on... :-(

22 มิถุนายน 2562, Alexis_Lecanu

Sorry but Garmin technology does not allow it yet on the Edge. I am sorry.

21 มิถุนายน 2562

Best software. Easy to use with google map, however, I suggest to increase the screen font icon. For example, direction, distance. It will easy to watch how to do.

22 มิถุนายน 2562, Alexis_Lecanu

Thank you for your return, can you send me an email to discuss the change? Thank you in advance.

15 มิถุนายน 2562

Great for navigating on my motorbike without having to mount the phone. Watch outside glove and always visible. Perfect!

16 มิถุนายน 2562, Alexis_Lecanu

Thank you

This is exactly the navigation app I was looking for - you get to use Google Maps completely like you normally do and have the directions sent to your watch. So simple, but perfect.

15 มิถุนายน 2562, Alexis_Lecanu

Thank you very much it's a pleasure

5 มิถุนายน 2562

Good app for driving mode but it really needs to include public transport option too! Example: going to a destination on Google maps via Subway or bus it should guide me there just like the phone does

6 มิถุนายน 2562, Alexis_Lecanu

Thank you for your return, for public transport Google Maps sends information that is difficult to recover and stuctured differently depending on certain language. If you want to code it no problem but for me it's too much work.

It very good but you have to download the app first "Nav Garmin connect IQ"

2 มิถุนายน 2562, Alexis_Lecanu

Thank you yes it takes 2 applications for it to work.

30 พฤษภาคม 2562

Hello I still can not use this application a message appears on the watch garmin vivoactive 3 music IQ! Could you help me

26 พฤษภาคม 2562

It would be better if you also work with In some countries we can not use google maps

26 พฤษภาคม 2562, Alexis_Lecanu

Thank you for your return, maybe one day if garmin corrects communication problems.

Thank you for this app. It made my live much easier. Works absolutely perfect since the last update. Just one question: is it possible to integrate osmand+. This would be great for offline Navigation if you are abroad. Thank you

31 พฤษภาคม 2562, Alexis_Lecanu

Thank you

8 พฤษภาคม 2562

Generally works fine - hence big THANK YOU. My suggestion is to enable to configure in what type of navigation scenario watch notification should be active. I.e. - for car navigation in 99% cases I have phone in front of me (or connected via Android Auto) and notifications on watch are just distraction. But for public transport it would be nice - but in such scenario the notifications does not work at all.

8 พฤษภาคม 2562, Alexis_Lecanu

Thank you for your return, I can not know what means of transportation you use. What I note is that in public transport it does not work. Can you send me an email so that I can correct the problem. thank you in advance.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
