Route export to Garmin watch wrong coordinates

I'm trying to export a route from Locus Map Pro Android to a Garmin Fenix 5 Plus using Locus Map For Gamin and Locus Map Connect IQ app on the watch. The export succeeds normally and the route is found on the watch using the watch's native navigation activity. However, when I try to look at the route on the watch's map, it's location is completely wrong. On the phone, the route is in Finland, but the watch's map doesn't show initially anything, but if I zoom out enough, I get the world map centered on the 180 degree longitude (near the Bering Strait in the Pacific Ocean). I guess the latitude might be correct, but it's hard to tell.

I'm attaching screenshots of both the phone map and the watch's map

Hi,

the line what is visible on the screenshot from your watch are part of Garmin worldmap and indicating border.

If you import the track to the watch and start navigation immediately after import, can you see track on the watch map?

Sorrry for a delay in replying. If I start navigation after import, the track shows ok on the map. But if I choose to just to view the track before navigating, I get the problem.

Hi Matti, then I suggest to check Garmin Forums as this might be some issue on Garmin firmware of your device. Our app handle only import of such track.
