With an AllTrails+ subscription, you can send AllTrails routes to your Garmin device from the AllTrails website (coming soon to the AllTrails mobile apps!). Routes sent to your Garmin can then be used to navigate while out on the trail.
What Garmin devices are compatible?
Any Garmin device that supports Garmin courses is compatible with this feature. You can browse a full list on the Garmin website.
How do I connect to Garmin?
You can connect to Garmin via your account settings at AllTrails.com. You’ll need to sign into Garmin and enable both activities and courses to send routes to Garmin. Learn more about connecting to your Garmin account.
I’m already connected to Garmin, do I need to do anything?
If you already have Garmin connected to sync with your activities, you still need to update your settings to enable Garmin courses to send routes to your Garmin device. From AllTrails.com, go to your account settings, then click 'Manage' next to 'Garmin' in the right panel. You will then click 'Change' to grant permission to AllTrails to send routes to Garmin (you may need to sign in to your Garmin account again).
How do I send AllTrails routes to Garmin?
You can find 'Send to Garmin' in the overflow menu (three dots) on trails, detail maps, custom routes, and activities. When you tap or click 'Send to Garmin,' your chosen route will be sent to Garmin Connect as a 'Course.'
Please note that you will have to sync your Garmin device with Garmin Connect to make sure your route has been sent. We recommend launching your Garmin Connect app to ensure your device has been synced.
How do I access the route on my Garmin device?
To get detailed instructions for accessing your route on your Garmin device, refer to your device’s instruction manual. You can find manuals for all devices on the Garmin website.
Can I update a route I’ve already sent to Garmin?
Yes. Routes sent to Garmin don’t update automatically if you make a change to a custom route, or a curated route is updated by AllTrails. If you sent a route a while ago, it’s always a good idea to update it on your device before you head out on the trail. To update the route, go into the overflow menu (three dots) for that route and click 'Update on Garmin.'
How do I view or manage everything I’ve sent to Garmin?
You can view the routes sent to Garmin via Garmin Connect in the 'Courses' tab. This can be accessed via the Garmin Connect app or Garmin Connect website by selecting 'Training & Planning' >> 'Courses.' You'll also see this link to view your Garmin courses in your Garmin settings screen ('Manage routes on Garmin').
