For me, connection problems were always fixed by disabling and reanabling Bluetooth on the phone. You can also check the FAQ here: https://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:add-ons:locusforgarmin#garmin_application_keeps_loosing_connectivity

Hi Jan. It would be great if Locus would support the course point icons from Garmin Connect. Currently it only supports the old waypoint icons (from Basecamp?). These do not work as course point icons, at least not on Fenix watches. It would be awesome if we could select the course point icons in Locus and and see them then also on the watch when we export the course. The fenix expects the correct course point ID in the fit file, then it will display the icon. The course point icons could be a separate category under the Garmin icons

Hi sbouju, completely missed your post, sorry. Not sure what is the problem in your case honestly!  :-\ Does it happening even if you leave Locus Map for Garmin app open on your smartphone?

@mfink Yep, we have draft of changes which enables you to better pair icons on Locus with the new Fenix devices showing. But it is not that easy as various Garmin models have different icon sets.

Hi Jan!

I am really sorry about the whole Garmin API-fiasco.
Got to say, on my FRN945 I am only using the app for quick course transfer from the phone, and love it!

Although I plan to upgrade to a Garmin Edge for my bike, and as I see it is not yet supported.
Is it still planned to be supported, or maybe the community can give some advice how to quickly copy courses from phone to a Garmin Edge 530?

Thanks!  ;)

This should work:
- install the gexporter app on your phone and gimporter widget on your Edge.
- export course from Locus in gpx or fit format. Tick 'Share after Export'.
- on the share Dialog, select the gexporter app.
- open the gimporter widget on the edge and import the course.

Alternatively, you can import the exported course into Garmin connect and send it to the Edge from there.

As you recommended I have downgraded Garmin connect to version 4.19. Still I can't use the Garmin's vivoactive 3 GPS (tried to connect Locus maps via "Bluetooth GPS/GPS device", but the Garmin gps device is not found.
Any hints?
Edit: Locus map classic 3.62.0; Locus Map for Garmin premium: device status connected [connection is stable]
