If you use Chrome as the web browser on your computer we have a Chrome Extension that adds a button to your toolbar to save routes directly from all the route websites that we support. It's now incredibly easy to leverage the wealth of awesome routes on those sites, then send them to your Garmin watch or Edge with just a click of our button!
When you see a route on Strava, MapMyRun, Trailforks or one of the supported websites that you'd like to save, click on the dynamicWatch toolbar button. This will add it to your routes in our system. You can also set it as your current active route in the popup that is shown.
With the dynamicWatch Chrome Extension you don't even need to visit our website to send exciting new routes to your Garmin device. It's that simple!
What websites can I use the Toolbar Button with?
In additional to the normal route source websites that dynamicWatch can import from, the Chrome Extension also lets you use routes from your Ordnance Survey, Komoot and Visorando accounts. Just make sure you are logged into your account and viewing one of your routes on that website, then click the toolbar button. You may need a paid account on that website in order to use this feature, so please sign-up and support their excellent service offerings.
Whichever website you are getting your routes from, please bear in mind your responsibilities under copyright laws, including restricting your use of the routes to personal use on your Garmin device.
Adding Routes to Collections
If you have our Premium option you can organize your routes into Route Collections which let you group related routes such as "Gravel Rides" or "5-7 km Runs". From the Toolbar Button you can immediately add new routes to a collection, and it remembers and uses your last choice for each new route you add.
If you are, for example, planning a cycling trip to the French Alps, you can browse the web for route suggestions, adding them to a collection, eg "French Alps Cycling". Then you can look at all the routes together in that collection using the Routes Map View and even use a Heatmap of them in our Route Planner to rapidly create your own variations of them.
