  • You can review the Routes that will be listed on your Garmin device on the My Routes page on the web or under the Routes section of your profile on the iOS or Android app
  • The 'Strava Routes' app will appear in the ConnectIQ app folder. Your downloaded routes will appear in the Courses folder.



Do I have to update my Firmware?
