Garmin Explore

Recommended Posts

I searched and found many instances of "explore", but none for Garmin Explore. I wonder why? Are people not using this app? It's awesome, if your gps is compatible.

I don't have a Garmin InReach, nor do I need one to use the site, as it says above. I bought a couple of 66S units the other day and so I downloaded the app to my iPhone and iPad, downloaded maps to the apps, and connected the apps to my 66 and lo and behold, tracks I had saved on my device are now showing up automatically in Explore. Pretty sweet!

 

I also had a lot of tracks saved on my Montana so I transferred some to the 66S using ANT+, and they also showed up in the apps on the phone and tablet. 

 

Doesn't get easier than that!

Maybe I have just not "explored" it enough to know what I am missing?  I do use Garmin's other three -  Express, Connect, and BaseCamp a lot, but not Explore.  I will follow this thread to see what I might be missing out on.

Do you have a compatible gps like the 66? There may be others with the same features, but the web site for Garmin Explore doesn't list any. aside from the 66.

Checking out the Garmin Explore web site a little more, it seems that having a 66S or compatible unit and your smartphone is almost as good as having an InReach or a Spot unit. You can set up a password protected tracking page which you can share, and which is updated as long as you have cell signal. Really useful!
