I'm just getting deeper into the Garmin Connect app, and I've now run into this problem (and thread). I agree it should allow to be automatically adjusted between a road bike and a mountain bike.…
I think the bigger question is why are there no improvements to Garmin Connect Web - like adding additional categories to Gear that match the same activity types that have been added to new products. I…
Ive found this thread and have this same problem,
I do mountain bike riding and road riding and wish to automatically add that bike to each activity!
Let me know if there is any type of work around or…
I'd like to set up Garmin Connect such that when I choose 'run' on my Fenix 3, my road running shoes are linked and when I choose 'trail run' it knows that I'll be using the trail running shoes.As you know, it doesn't work like that, because:
Currently I can only select 'other' when I choose an activity assigned to my trail running shoes, 'trail running' is not listed as an option under gear settings.Or you simply accept that for trail running activities you'll have to manually add/remove gear after upload, whereas for road running activities you don't (or vice versa, depending on which type of running you do more frequently, and set the default gear for running accordingly). Nobody said it would be fully automatic and do exactly what you want.
I have the same problem with my road and mountain bike.See this other discussion thread.
Is there a way to have Garmin Connect default the gear used based on the activity? Here's my situation:
I ride both road and mountain bikes. When I upload my activity to Garmin Connect, it will automatically indicate the activity type (at the top of the page) as either "Road cycling" or "Mountain biking." This is great, but the bike that gets associated with the ride is ALWAYS my mountain bike. So if I ride road, I have to remember to switch this.
I noticed on the Gear page, for my mountain bike, it says "Automatically add to..." and Cycling is selected:
But in the activity page, the drop-down lists multiple cycling types:
Can I get Garmin Connect to tag my mountain bike for "Mountain Biking" and my road bike for "Road Cycling"? Seems like this should be possible if Garmin Connect automatically selects the cycling type specifically for the activity.
