Transferring Tours from Garmin Connect to komoot

If you enable Activities, all your tours from the last five years will be uploaded from your Garmin Connect account to your komoot account. These tours are automatically synchronized and it is not possible to manually influence or undo this synchronization once you have selected this option. 

You have the option to bulk delete the Tours you don't want to have on komoot. You can find this option on the website by going to More () >  Settings >  Connections and selecting Review import. In the App: Profile () > Settings () > Garmin Connect > Review import

Transferring Tours from komoot to Garmin Connect

Activating the Courses toggle will push all your planned Tours from komoot to your Garmin device. Those Tours will be synced automatically and there is no way you can manually influence this synchronization or prevent it from happening once you have chosen this option. 

The last 10 planned komoot Tours are displayed in Garmin Connect under "Training and Planning" > "Courses". Additional planned komoot Tours can be imported as GPX file at any time. 

Note: You may have to reset all map filters to show the routes.
