About this app

Navigate yourself with your Garmin watch on a whole new level! Connect it with Locus Map, one of the best outdoor navigation apps for Android. Enjoy route planning on a big screen of a smartphone and show maps (even on most non-map devices), navigate, track your activities or even play geocaching with Garmin.

With Locus Map for Garmin you can
1) use it as main activity application which enables you:
-- display real-time data from Locus Map running on your smartphone in your Garmin:
---- MAPS incl. any overlays (no need for native map support of Garmin device!)
---- NAVIGATION
---- GUIDANCE
---- TRACK RECORDING
---- DEVICE STATUS (battery, GPS.. )
-- record activities, provide their statistics and store them on Garmin Connect
-- see map stored on your Garmin device (on supported devices)
2) EXPORT ROUTES from your smartphone to your Garmin to navigate them with other activity apps (on devices supporting navigation features)

PREVIEW/PREMIUM MODE
After installation, the app runs in a “Preview mode”. Full-featured Premium version can be purchased in Locus Store (within Locus Map app) for about 4 EUR. You can test all main features compatible with your Garmin before purchase to see whether the app behaves correctly with your Android phone and Garmin combination.

By unlocking Premium mode, you will get:
- removed Preview Mode overlays
- no Preview mode splash screen
- vibration alerts before navigation events
- dynamic screen manager (hides unused screens etc.)
- and more

To use the app, you must install:
- this Android communication app, through which you can install all rest. After the initial setup, you don’t need to open this application again as it runs in the background when required.
- Locus Map outdoor navigation app (either Free or Pro - doesn't matter for usage with Garmin)
- Locus Map for Garmin Connect IQ app ( https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/f15dd655-e734-456e-b8f5-314d287df4a4 )

I use bundle of Locus on smartphone and Garmin Phenix for city commuting and touring by bicycle. It changed my navigation strategy entirely. Before I needed to prepare all the route prior the beginning of the ride. Now I can go to 1000-km tour with only first 1-day track and draw next tracks on the go, depending all conditions. I rode in such way already several thousand kilometers. Thank you!!

Dears, your support was truly fast yet the problem was not resolved but only compensated with the options I provided you,eventually showing only directions through the app and not been able to record.This is half of the app utilisation for me , and I have almost the half rating.I didn't ask for half refund though (haha) but indeed since you were up to the issue I could give another star and make it three. If there are prerequisites like memory availability(as I feed backed you on for this) or anything else this is something that someone should know before paying an app that promises , even partial, compatibility.

Hi Kostas, thank your update. Unfortunately we can't provide any more help to you beside tip to cleaning memory on your device or do full reset as we wrote you via email. Fenix 3 is for sure very memory limited, but the app was tested on this device, so crashes shouldn't be happening.

I open the app on my phone and it says that it is connected to my Garmin Forerunner but nothing shows on my watch. Still trying to troubleshoot the problem, unsuccessfully. The phone app appears to work well. I purchased the pro thinking it might solve my problem, but no such luck.
