  • Explore activities and filter activities?

    With the old (non-modern) version of connect, you could explore activities on a map. That was one of the ways that I found many of the trails I run. I haven't been able to find any thing like that on the new version. I always went back to the old version explore page from a bookmark. Now it looks like Garmin has finally killed off the page I had bookmarked. Is there anything like that hidden somewhere in the modern Garmin Connect that I'm just not finding?

    Also what happened to the filter in my own activities? I used to be able to search for a run that was 8km to 10km, or whichever distances I wanted. That way when I wanted to run a 8km, 10km or whatever in an area I haven't run in a while, it was easy for me to find routes that I was familiar with, and not get parts of my old 10km mixed up with parts of my old 10 mile.

    Are these things still in the modern Garmin Connect and I'm just not finding them?

    Thanks

    Both my old pre-modern explore links and my newer modern explore links died a few days ago. The modern explore links now die and go to what looks like a pre-modern page. The modern explore page is at https://connect.garmin.com/modern/explore i believe.

    The activity filters disappeared a while back with latest round of "improvements" to the activities page.

      and from a recent email discusssion i've had with Garmin Support, we aren't likely to see any improvement in the ability to filter, below is the last reply that i had from them:

        Really disappointing this features was very useful to study past race course or find path when visiting new places. I can't understand Garmin Policy to continue to ruin what is working.
        In change of what an unuseful and meaningless App?
        Please Fix this bug and export issues too

          I loved this feature, https://connect.garmin.com/minactivities also now doesn't work...
          Why was this feature removed?

            That's a very good question Richard, wish i had an answer, because without that ability connect is pretty much worthless

                I dont even see the mag glass to search for activities anymore. As if they have removed the entire feature. Now I can only search for my own past activities and not the general public. What a shame, this has been broken/missing for so long.

                  You can't find all activities by other users anymore but you can find and download courses created by others which seems to function about the same. Click on training, then courses, scroll the map to the area you're interested in, then on "nearby courses" at the top of the window that slides in from the left side of the screen. From there it functions much like it did in the previous "explore activities".

                    Isn't it odd that they've fleshed out the Courses section to have full search capability (like Activities used to have), but removed it from Activities totally? Do they realize Courses is speculative, whereas Activities is actual? How many times have you mapped out a course and found roads missing, or impassable? Of course, these are the same people who included sitting at the coffee shop as part of your Average Speed (speed = movement, last I checked). I've always suspected that the "developers" don't use the products. It really shows.

                          Just went looking for this as well, was really handy to see info on races I hadn't done before. Any feedback from Garmin as to if it is/isn't coming back?

                            From the dashboard, Training.../...Popularity Heat Map. but it doesn't seem to do anything special. clicking Courses, or Find a Course also seem to be broken.

                              I found this frustrating. I was searching for runs that I had done of a certain distance and the original search was ideal for this. I dug around a bit and found that the feature is still there.

                              If I go into "Activities" > "All Activities" and select "Running" There is a blue "Advanced" button at the top of the list of activities. Clicking on this gives the option to search by entering a range of distance, date, time etc.

                              Apologies if this has already been answered
