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

The application is great, just please add the import of .gpx routes as well

Jürgen Barden

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)


How are we able to import gpx files?

Richard Dodd

Can you add, route from Google maps to this app please, I have saved places on Google maps and would like to transfer to watch and use on this app.


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.


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?


How and where do you access Documents/GPS Navigation/gpx when Samsung tell me there is no way to access my watch from a PC etc?


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.

Hi I live in Scotland and was wondering if I can view the app on my phone?

And the voice input can support Cantonese?

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 how can i change the speech volume of the direction?

Wayne Hodgkins

GPS Navigation from the Samsung wear store GPS is made by a company called [somyac] I have a ticwatch pro I was wondering if you could possibly try and send me a link cos I’ve had a look at the stuff online how to transfer it into MP3 and stuff to get it on a ticwatch but I’m struggling if you could help me out or point me in the right direction I’ll be much appreciated many thanks Wayne Hodgkins.


Muchas gracias. ?Como puedo iniciar sesion?


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

Chris Straub

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

I bought the pro license from googleplay store. However, my wear OS smart watch (Tic Watch 3 Ultra GPS) is not listed in the compatible list. I am using an iPhone with Wear installed.


Hey, I bought the app and tried to download a map for use offline, but a couple things happened. For one, after I finished downloading it, the app says I need to set the map in my settings. (???) Do I have to use OSM Offline?

The second thing is when I go to use OSM Offline, it will only let me zoom out so far.

The third thing is, when I go to search any city in my US state (without an internet connection but with the proper offline US state map), it pulls up absolutely nothing, no matter what I type in.


Actually I messed up a bit! I posted this on the Tizen page for GPS Navigation, and I should have posted this on the Wear OS page for GPS Navigation. Does this change the status of any of these issues? Or should I still contact support? (support@somyac.com)


Hello, i have the watch 5 and have bought pro version. I cannot download offline maps, it just says ‘please wait… 0/0% ?/?’

When will this issue be fixed?
Any tips?


Поиск и оффлайн навигация не работает, хотя есть лицензия. Маршрут не строит

Голосовой поиск также не работает. Пишет “Ошибка – 15”


Ещё вопрос. Я поменял телефон, как восстановить лицензию на новом?


Hi. I´m a Galaxy S21 Ultra with Galaxy watch 5 user and I would like to kindly ask you how to send one existing .gpx file from my mobile phone to the watch and in what folder should I find it?

Hi, I recently went on a hike and tried to use the route function. The kept loading but it seemed like the gps was not locking. I switched to the online map and decided to start the hike w/o the route/map showing. I walked about 10 minutes and noticed the route finally appeared which was good because I was walking in the wrong direction. When I turned around to walk back, I noticed my watch was not tracking me. It looked as if my location was stuck on the point where I stopped and turned around.

Ultimately, I just ended up loading the gpx route in Samsung Health. Any suggestions on what I did wrong? I did not have any power saving options on.


Also, one more question. What is the difference between the offline map options (Maps, POI, Route). I wonder if that was my issue.
