Garmin Connect in Release 6

Post by phurd99 »

Hi Markus,
On then new release of rubiTrack 6 I cannot get it to sync with Garmin connect. If I used version 5 it works great. Checked Sync Manager and it is Authorized. Just attempt for about 4 or 5 secs and I get a screen with dashes. Screen shot attached.

Thanks in advance.

the new Garmin Connect sync works forward-looking. This means that after authorization, there are no activities to download immediately. Instead all NEW activities that you add to Garmin Connect via your device after the authorization will be available for syncing (for a limited time).

The API has an option to backfill old activities (with a lot of restrictions, not ours). There's a FAQ that explains how it works:

Best Regards
