You don't. Google changed the infrastructure of the login process in a way that is no longer compatible with older Android versions like 4.0.4 of the Monterra. But this is less of a problem than it seems. The current version of the Google Play Store and Google Play services are huge apps for the old Monterra so even if you could use them it would be greatly recommended to uninstall them because you need the system memory (RAM) for your Garmin apps to run.

Also, most modern Android apps will simple refuse to run at Android 4.0.4 because they require a newer API version. What you should do is downloading the .apk files of the apps you want to use from sites like APKPure or APKMirror. You should mostly look for offline apps and older apps.

I installed an old version of ES File Explorer, old SD Maid, Survival Manual, old version of Firefox for Android and a weather app that still works.
