Export from MOBILE
Hi everyone - morning. I'm a new user and trying to figure out if I can export a route from the mobile app to my Garmin. I've managed to export the route/track using my PC and connecting my Garmin via USB, but I was hoping there would be the option to export straight from my mobile to my Garmin. Is that possible at all..? Thanks in advance, Andre

Hi @Andre-van-der-Merwe I have a Zumo XT and use the ‘save as’ function from MRA to download the route to the files app on my iPhone (or iPad which will sync on the iPhone). You can share this from your phone through MyDrive straight to the device and it will upload into both the Track App and Trip Planner app on the Zumo.
Not familiar with Android method but would envisage a similar method.
There is a also YouTube video https://youtu.be/j7DNgwJ46K4 which may help.
Thanks for your note, but I'm afraid I'm not getting it right.
I've managed to save the .gpx 1.1 (route, track, POI) to FILES on my i-phone, but I'm not sure how to share this from my i-phone with my Garmin device (navigator 6).
BTW: it looks like the video link you shared only covers the procedure for PC to device, and not Mobile to device.
Any advice will be much appreciated.
@Andre-van-der-Merwe Could this help?
Hey @Drabslab - thanks for the note. I logged a ticket with support - hope they can help. Will post the answer here when I hear from them.

excellent, this way we all learn something
Happy New Year!
Hey @Drabslab - here's the message I received from Support:
I use a Garmin Navigator 6, but unfortunately haven't had any luck using Garmin Smartlink as he suggests, so I'm at a bit of a dead-end, I'm afraid I've used Smartlink successfully before with my NAV 6, but not with MRA
Does anyone perhaps know if the NAV6 will be able to use Smartlink and if so, what the procedure is..?
