I understand the comments from previous reviews as it is not a user friendly app. I own a Fenix for MTB primarily, so I still appreciate this app and its functions. I think more of the issue is with how the actual Traiforks app on your phone syncs to Connect. My process is to 1. Add route to my wishlist (On phone Trailforks App). 2. in Trailforks phone app, I swipe down forcing my wishlist to actually sync on the server side of Trailforks (THIS IS THE BUG). If you DONT go into your "My Wishlist" and swipe down to update, it for some reason will NOT show up in your "My Routes" on the Trailforks Garmin app! Weird! 3. Goto Trailforks app on Garmin (ensure Connect is open and connected between watch and phone). 4. Download your route from "My Routes"
Trailforks should work on this, especially since they charge such a premium now for their service. Also since Outside bought them out, resources shouldn't be an excuse.
Doesn’t work. Crashes every time I try to download a route from my wishlist. It’s unusable, and I already paid for the pro version of Trailforks just to be able to use maps in my fénix 6s. Waste of money. Fix it!
Terrible. I should be able to just pull up to a trail system open up the app and view a map with the trails. Shouldn't have to search for routs or anything like that. Just want defined MTB trails showing up on my Garmin

The concept is cool but the execution terrible. Many long-standing trails that have been on TrailForks for years simply don’t show up on Garmin. If any new trails are added they also don’t show up even after “updates”. Both TF and Garmin need to get it together. I’d buy another app and device that does better in a second.
Just got a Garmin 830. Can’t authorize Trailforks for some reason. I wanted this to help me navigate certain trails. What’s the deal?
A mess! No way to update trail from Garmin 830 to Trailforks since 15th/nov'21
Trailforks team is doing really best but Garmin added activity W/o notice
Doesn't work on my Edge 1030 plus. I bought it today and was very happy to use it, but now I'm disappointed. Garmin shame on you. Please fix it asap
Doesn't work on my Fenix 6. Although it works on my Edge explore.
I feel like 60% of the trails on Trailforks are showing up on the garmin. This is literally the only reason I bought the thing was to help me route better and have more trail awareness. Pretty disappointed. Especially with all the Trailforks app bragging garmin does
Does not work with the 530, and developers have not responded to email/feedback to address the problem reported. A shame that Garmin is promoting this as a key feature of the unit and it doesn't even work!
Won't work on my new Garmin 830. That was kinda the whole point of buying it. Very disappointed :-(
nearby parameter doesn't work ; value must be between 1 - 500 and any value doesn't work, even the default 25 (French interface).
Works great on my EDGE 830
Makes me download the app every single time I try to use it. It shows up on my 1030 and in my IQ but it still makes me download it again. So frustrating. I have given up on it and just try to find a Strava segment that is close enough to the Trailforks route and use that. Overall completely worthless.
