    Garmin Sync - automatic route transfer to Garmin devicesWe're very excited to announce two significant new features that we've just launched:

    • starring of routes

    • automatic transfer of selected routes to Garmin devices

    The new route starring feature enables you to flag selected routes of interest on your My Routes page with a star. You can then filter the list to show only starred routes, hiding other ones that you don't need to see right now. This feature is available to both Standard and Premium members.

    The new Garmin Sync feature gives Premium members the option of automatically transferring starred routes to Garmin devices via Garmin Connect. To use the Garmin Sync feature, you first need to set-up the link to Garmin Connect (you do this only once from your My Settings page), then it is simply a case of starring any routes you want to transfer. Once starred, a route is queued for transfer and should appear as a Course in Garmin Connect within a few minutes, where it will then sync with your Garmin devices. Unstarring the route on your My Routes page will remove it from Garmin Connect, so you can easily control which of your routes you want on your Garmin devices.

    Please note, the Garmin Sync feature is in Beta release, as it is a complex new development - this means it has been through testing but may still have bugs. Please let us know if you spot any problems by reporting them on the forums. There are also currently some limitations to the route information that can be transfered to Garmin using this method, but we hope that this will be enhanced over time.

    Read our How-To Guide on using the Garmin Sync feature for more details.

    For more information about Premium membership, please visit our Membership Options page.

    Awesome, you made my day! Integration works like a charm. It transfers all route directions (custom once as well). Great job!

    It's very good news for my garmin watch, but It's useless for garmin gpsmap 66. Gpsmap 66 does not use Garmin Connect  to download tracks  unfortunately

    Can you not sync your GPSMap66 using Garmin Express Mikhail? Our understanding is that Garmin devices without bluetooth can download from Garmin Connect using the Garmin Express software. See Garmin's advice on how to sync with Garmin Connect for more details.

    This is also strange for me, as well as for you, but for This is also strange for me, as well as for you, but for GPSMAP 66 Garmin made a separate tool for downloading track -  Garmin Explore. This is a strange and raw product.  As a result, you have to use either with oldstyle usb download, or use iq applications like GRouteLoader, gimporter
