To remove Tours from your Garmin device, it is best to do it directly through the Garmin device itself. Alternatively, you can connect your Garmin device to a computer and delete the files in the folder. The komoot app for Garmin only offers the function to delete Tours on the device if the Tour was exclusively downloaded via the app.

Tip: If you are using the "Send to Device" feature, it is recommended to deactivate the Courses Sync to prevent automatic backfilling. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to deactivate it

Deleting from the Garmin device

Since the storage location of externally transferred Tours can vary depending on the Garmin device, it is recommended to refer to the user manual of your device in case the instructions described below are not applicable:

  1. Go to the "Navigation" menu on your device.
  2. Select "Courses" from the options.
  3. Look for "Saved Courses" and delete the Tour from there.

If your device does not have a Courses/ Tours/ GPX folder, refer to the device manual to see if deleting Tours from the device is available and where to find it. If your device doesn't have this option, delete the Tour by connecting the device to a computer.

Deleting via connecting device to computer

You have the option to manually delete Tours by connecting your Garmin device to your computer using a USB cable and deleting the Tour from the "Courses" folder. You can find a guide on how to do this in this Garmin article.

 Note: The name of the "Courses" folder may vary depending on the Garmin device and firmware version. For example:

Deleting within the komoot app for Garmin

Tours can be deleted directly in the komoot app for Garmin, provided they have been transferred exclusively via this app or the "Send to Device" feature. However, if the Tour was sent to the Garmin device via the courses' synchronization, deletion can only be done directly through the Garmin device or by connecting the device to a computer.

To remove a Tour via the komoot app for Garmin, follow these steps:

  1. Open the komoot app on your Garmin device.
  2. Open the Tour you want to delete.
  3. Reset the Offline switch.

 Attention: If your Tours are transferred not only via the komoot app for Garmin but also through courses' synchronization, resetting the switch will only remove the offline data and not the Tour itself from the device.
