Hello Experts

I've got my Fenix some days ago and I'm still in testing mode, but one of my big wish seems to be not possible at the moment...
As I could upload finished tracks from the watch to Garminconnect - I would also be interested to download planned tracks from Garminconnect to the watch....

Currently, it seems not to be supported, as "send to device" out of a planning tool shows the message, that no supported devices was recognized.
Does anyone has a workaround or tip or an idea if this is planned ?

Many thanks
Daniel

The fastest way, export the track to a SD card. Than copy them from the GPX folder on the SD card to the GPX folder on the Fenix. The Fenix will show up as a removable storage device on your PC.

Hello MARIOMOBIEL

Thanks for your feedback !

I discovered this thread:

As I only own the Fenix, I cannot send the track to an other device to grap it from there.
Also, my goal is to use the Fenix as a GPS tool to show me the way of the track while I'm doing it and not to export the track after I did it already ;-)

So I cross fingers that Garmin will add the Fenix as supported device soon to GC that I could sent the track directly to the device.

Thanks
Daniel

You can also use Garmin Basecamp for that, it's free and u can install the Open CycleMap in it, that's also
free. That way u can import and Export track.
