Route transfer to the Garmin watch without wifi or mobile network.

To transfer route from phone to Garmin watch works providing phone is on wifi or data network. If both are unavailable, transfer stops with error code "0". This is critical when being outdoor where no data available (typically thru-hike treks) . Is there a solution?

Hi, I am afraid this is another illogical limitation of Garmin Connect (which is providing connectivity background between our apps). This worked in the past but not anymore without any change on our side. I will try to look into it in more detail during this month to check whether there isn't any new ways, but I am bit skeptical to be honest. Jan

thank you Jan. Being five or more days without possibility to charge devices pushes me to limit phone usage and focus on Garmin.

The only way of transfering routes from a phone to a Garmin device without internet connection is currently the Garmin Explore app. You can plan your route in Locus, send the gpx to Explore and from there, sync it to the Garmin device. Explore is compatible with most Garmin outdoor devices.
