Locus Map for Garmin - GPX import has stopped working

Thomas Steffen shared this problem 11 days ago

Hello,

i am using Locus Map for Garmin, to import GPX-Tracks on my Fenix 6X Pro Solar. Yesterday i imported the last GPX-Track and i had no problems.

Today i updated some apps (Garmin Connect). Afterwards it was impossible for me, to import GPX-Tracks.


This is my hardware:

Smartphone: Samsung Galaxy S10 with Android 10

Watch: Garmin Fenix 6X Pro Solar with software version 11.10


These are the steps i've already done, to fix the issue:

- Reinstalling and reconnecting Locus Map for Garmin on my Smartphone and on my watch

- Deleting the Cache for the Apps: Locus Map Pro, Locus Map for Garmin and Garmin Connect

- Disconnecting my Watch from Garmin Connect, reboot into Recovery-Mode, Wipe Dalvik Cache, reconnecting the watch with my smartphone

- Checking the battery settings (all optimizations for the apps are deactivated)


P.S.: There seems to be a problem with the new version of the Garmin Connect app! Can you confirm this?


Best regards

Thomas

Hello Jan,

i hope that you'll find the bug and can fix it.

I really need this feature. It is horrible to import GPX-files using the Garmin Connect homepage.

Similar problem... any other method is such a pain. As well, my Strava import broke too. Not sure if this is related. I'm using Fenix 5X and latest Locus/Connect version.

Hello guys,

I got the same problem.

F6x pro solar and used to import files with locus map.

Hope we'll find a fix soon..


Btw I found a workaround using the phone but not tested yet in real training.


You can launch locus on the phone, start the tracking and use locus maps on the watch directly..

Today, i downgraded my Garmin Connect App to v4.35.1 (from apkmirror) and everything works fine again.

I'll wait for an Update wich will fix this issue, because the most current version 4.36.3 is still broken.
