dwMap is designed to work with our website to simplify managing your routes and settings. That's how most free and Premium users use it, and the website is mobile-friendly and works great on your phone.
However we've had a lot of requests to be able to use a phone app instead of the website, especially to change the current dwMap route when an Internet connection is not available, so we've put together a small, but really useful, "companion" phone app as an option for Premium dwMap users.
The dwMap Premium Companion Apps let you:
- Download your routes so they are available when your phone and watch are offline.
- Preview a route on a street, satellite or OpenCycleMap map.
- Send it directly to the dwMap Premium app on your watch.
- Change your activity type and other frequently used settings.
- Create a "Quick Route" from your current location to a destination, and send it to dwMap Premium.
- Share GPX files from other apps or downloaded GPX files to the companion app to send to dwMap Premium.
