    Drop me an email at info@dynamic,watch for our suggested workaround. This started happening with a recent firmware upgrade on the Edge 1000 and although we cannot see any reason for it, we can work around it.

    • Wonderful app!

      However, I'm wondering whether there is an option use Garmin's training plan functionality (= I get beeps & vibrations for intervals and other workouts) while simultaneously having dwMap to run an unknown route?
      (I'm using a FR 235 btw)

      (If not, I will in the future run an unknown route with dwMap a few times and memorize it, and then the next time, run it with the training function.
      Or try to memorize the workout details: that would be better!)

      Update: I simply write the workout instructions on a paper and put it in a tiny plastic bag. Now I can use dwMap at all times!
      Plus buying Premium since I would like turn-by-turn

      • Hi Asgaro, glad you like the dwMap app! On the watch platform only one app can be running at once so unfortunately you cannot use, say, the built-in Run or Ride app at the same time as dwMap. We'd love to add more features like that within our app, but unfortunately there is not enough memory, nor enough CPU speed, to add additional features like training plan notifications to the core features of dwMap, such as the route display and (in Premium) turn-by-turn instructions.

        • Feature request: ignore certain zoom levels from showing up.

          I like to use the Z2 zoom level the majority of the time, but I also like to see my first data-fields-display from time to time.
          So to switch between these 2 windows I have to do 2 button-up or button-down presses each time.
          It would be helpful if I can disable Z1 and Z3 so 1 button press would suffice.

          • Thanks for the suggestion for dwMap Asgaro. However, we have to very careful in selecting new features to add to the app, because the watch platform offers very little memory to each app, and we are already using nearly all of what is available to us. So even adding a small bit of code to allow selected zoom levels is too expensive in terms of memory. There are a number of frequently-requested features that would be relatively easy to implement, for example, but which there is not enough memory for.

            • Hello,
              When you are making a route, is it possible to save intermediate points and then return to a specific one?
              Very good application!!!
              Great job!!!

                Glad you like dwMap! If you have our Premium option then you can create waypoints as well as a route, and you can choose to have the app guide you to one of your waypoints instead of to follow the route. This is useful for geocaching for example. See https://dynamic.watch/help/premium#waypoints for more info.

                • Thanks for answering so fast. If I have seen "https://dynamic.watch/help/premium#waypoins" but I think this is for planned routes. My problem is that if you are on an unknown route (unplanned), I know that sw can go to the starting point, but ... Can you create intermediate points (waypoins) and go to them ??

                    It's not setup so that you can drop a waypoint at the current spot and then later go to it. We're quite cramped on memory, and although that's a frequent request I am not sure whether it is feasible to add it. There's a good workaround though: assuming you have cell signal, it's easy to change the route in the (mobile friendly) web route Planner during an activity. So you could add a waypoint at a new spot to the current or to an all new route, or create a new route to a new destination, then hit Refresh in the dwMap app's menu to get it, and the new route and/or waypoints are immediately ready for use in your current activity.

                    • I saw it already mentioned somewhere else, but it would indeed be a good idea to increase the font size for the data screens. Below a comparison between the Garmin data fields and the dwMap data fields, where the font is too small to see clearly at a quick glance.

                      Left: Garmin original, Right: dwMap

                      • Good news I think LoekV, I've been working on all new layouts for the data pages for the next release of dwMap, and here is what the data fields pages on the new app are looking like in the Forerunner 235 simulator with those fields chosen:

                        • That's great news indeed! One minor thing I noticed: the numbers are shifted a bit to the bottom it seems. In the screenshot below I moved them a bit more to the top, which I think looks a bit better.

                          .

                          • I'm sure this has been asked before but on my Fenix 5 watch, how do I discard a route without saving it. When I get to the screen that says Save and Exit I get yes or no, if I select no it returns to the paused route screen. Thanks

                              This is a deliberate choice in the user interface for dwMap. We wanted to eliminate the chance that a user can inadvertently exit an activity without saving, but, since we are extremely short of memory on the watch, we did not want to add extra code to add a confirmation step. We understand that users can find this inconvenient when they are first trying and testing the app, but quickly get used to it when they are using it normally. The unwanted activity can, of course, be deleted later in History and/or Garmin Connect.

                                ah, that makes sense and many thanks for the clarification. Keep up the great work.

                                Thank you
