I’ve got an app where I can make a route along roads and footpaths and export as a gpx file.

Is there an app that will ‘buzz’ the watch when it’s time to make a turn if I’ve imported that gpx file ? Or even show it on screen?

I tried ViewRanger but it shows the map which is too much detail when trying to run.

I’m measuring pace, distance etc with MapMyRun and happy with that so wouldn’t mind just a ‘navigation’ app to run at same time (I’m happy switching between 2 apps as I run) or something that will take over everything (I like to see time, distance, pace so far... I used to think I needed more but I really don’t for what I do)

Thanks in advance.

I am also interested. ViewRanger does not help to follow the route. In addition the maps dose load process is terrible. Any other app???

Workoutdoors: you have, the map, the route, but it doesn't notifies you when you have to turn
