Hi Philip - you need to be on your My Routes page (select My Routes from the menus). There is a star symbol that you can click on in the list of routes, assuming you're using the desktop site. On the mobile site you'll need to select the route from the My Routes page first, then you'll get some options that include the star.
We have further details in our guide on How To Sync Your Routes to Garmin.
so I paid for the premium version to easily transfer courses to my Garmin 1030. The directions indicate to star a course...but I only see a heart. Help.
Thanks for this feedback Johan. Unfortunately Garmin's API doesn't currently offer any way for us to send our own route directions, but we're hoping that this will be something they add in a future update. In the meantime, you would need to use the manaul file transfer methods to transfer any directions saved with your route.
Love the Garmin integration but to be really useful for me there needs to be a way to get rid of the directions that garmin adds to all imported files.
The manual way to do this is to export the cousrse as a fit file and maually add it to the watch, and bypass the creation of directions. leaving the manually added POI/Nav points
