Q1. I see ‘No GPS Signal’ dialog. How to fix it?

Please try following steps:

A1.1. Make sure that you use one GPS module at the same time – internal (from the smartwatch) or external (from the phone)
A1.2. If you use internal GPS wait a while (2-3 min) in place where GPS signal is good, for example close to the window
A1.3. Disable battery optimization for Galaxy Wearable app
A1.4. If you use external GPS, open any map application in the phone and check if there is correct position

Q2. How to use my own GPX file?

There are several gpx file formats. We support the Garmin standard.
First, convert your file to supported format:
A2.1. Go to https://www.alltrails.com/converter
A2.2. Upload your file, select: Convert to Track/Route, Download as: GPX Track -> press Convert file button

Now you have to copy the GPX file to your smartwatch to: Documents/GPS Navigation/gpx.
A2.4. You can use any transfer app available in the Galaxy Store or (little more difficult but free option)
A2.5. Change file extension to .mp3, go to Galaxy Wearable app and use ‘Add content to your watch’ -> ‘Add tracks’
A2.6. On the smartwatch use our free File Transfer app to rename and copy the file

Q3. How to find and export GPX file?

A3.1. Download any file transfer app on your watch, for example: http://somyac.com/apps/filetransfer/
A3.2. Navigate to the following directory on a watch: Documents/GPS Navigation/myroutes
A3.3. Send gpx file(s) to your phone or PC

    I just bought the app. I miss much a video to use the app. It is hard work to prepare target Adress. On my galaxy watch I can’t even see ehat I type in, cause keyboard on the watch is covering to much on the display. I don’t know, how the app is searching the address. I was just able to type geo coordinate numbers. After choosing favorite place, routing is not starting. I don’t know why.

    Hi, what about importing gpx-tracks (which were placed in documents/GPS Navigation) and then let navigate them?

    (Sorry, first comment was on wrong post)

    Hi, I was just wondering if there is any way to store maps for navigation offline? I use gpx files but when I’m using app the maps always struggle to load. It always takes ages to load the map that’s of it loads it at all. Most of the time I just get a blank screen.

    • admin Post authorReply

      Hi, offline maps are not available in the current version. Speed of loading maps depends of the Internet quality.

        Is there a android app I can share my Google maps location from my smartphone to? And this shared location can then in the watch be used for navigation?

          Hello, thank you for the nice idea. Currently it is not possible.

    I live in Portugal. Can I use the maps here?
    Then, if I go to other country for vacations do I have the maps for that contry?
    Thanks for reading.

    • admin Post authorReply

      You can use maps in Portugal. The app works in the online mode, so it requires access to the Internet.

    How you access Documents/GPS Navigation/gpx on Watch 3 from Samsung phone ? Nothing works as you describe ! You can’t rename file to mp3 and transfer it via Wearable to the clock. Wearable check the header of the file – so you can’t transfer a .gpx as a .mp3 file. I bought “File Transfer/GPS Navigator” full version, so please explain how to transfer a file from Samsung A51 to a Galaxy Watch 3 via File Transfer and back.

      Hi, thank you for the question. I have sent you response via email.

      Hello, while you navigate tap on the bottom green panel (with arrows and commands) – you will see new view with volume button.

    How do I find the gpx file on my Samsung Smart Watch?
    And how do I export it to an other program?

    I’m trying to get my gpx file onto my watch. I have followed the directions above to convert the file, bought the Somyac file transfer app and have transferred the file onto my watch using Bluetooth. But when I go into the GPS app on my phone and go to the import route (gpx) function it indicates “No data”. I think this might be because the file transfer app has the gpx file in the downloads file, not the Documents/GPS Navigation file indicated in the directions below. How do I get the file from the File Transfer/Downloads file into the Documents/GPS Navigation file?

    Now you have to copy the GPX file to your smartwatch to: Documents/GPS Navigation/gpx.
    A2.4. You can use any transfer app available in the Galaxy Store or (little more difficult but free option)
    A2.5. Change file extension to .mp3, go to Galaxy Wearable app and use ‘Add content to your watch’ -> ‘Add tracks’
    A2.6. On the smartwatch use our free File Transfer app to rename and copy the file

      Hello, please launch the File Transfer app, go to the File Transfer/Download folder, long tap on the gpx file, select copy option, navigate to the Documents/GPS Navigation/gpx folder, select paste option.
