Garmin Explore only syncs via bluetooth?

Post by scotte » Fri Sep 13, 2019 4:13 pm

Am I correct that Garmin Explore only syncs to the 66 via bluetooth and not wifi?

The only way I've been able to sync data from the Explore web interface on my computer is by syncing via the Explore app on my phone.

The Explore web interface Device tab seems to confirm this, but I wanted to check as this is not an obvious limitation - one would think a wifi enabled device would sync over wifi - as it does for Garmin Connect and other services.

Explore is pretty "meh" - it's clear that Basecamp isn't going away any time soon, despite it being shelved. There's just so much functionality not in Explore...

Perhaps information on Explore can be added to the Connected Features table at https://www.gpsrchive.com/GPSMAP/GPSMAP ... tures.html - it would useful to have there. Thanks!

Good things come to those who wait. You can hold your breath on this one (this time only)....

Watch this space!

I hope, you have more good things for the 66 :D
I am waiting every day for some fixes.
