  • Highlights can be navigated to directly from within the Garmin device
  • Bookmarked komoot Collections can be viewed directly from within the Garmin device, and users can directly navigate tours in those Collections, or navigate directly to a highlight
  • Once the Garmin is offline, downloaded Tours and Highlights can be directly navigated

    Was sounding really good until I got to
    ‘except Vivoactive 3’

    Hey ho.

    Yeah, Vivoactive 3 are pretty limited 🙂 There is no navigation interface and you cannot download tours into device. It would be awesome to support them, but with current software limitations it’s not really possible.

    Cheers for that, thought that might be the case.

    Does Komoot still use footpaths for it’s bike routes? If they haven’t sorted that then it’s pretty useless in England….

    Does anyone know which is the best product among those listed on this site?
