What is the "Send to device" feature?
You can seamlessly send a route to your navigation devices, such as bike computers and smartwatches by using the "Send to Device" button in the komoot app or via the browser version.
The "Send to device" feature allows directly transferring a komoot Tour with only a few clicks to a supported device (currently only Garmin devices, see table below). This feature is available from the Route planner, from planned and completed Tours or even from Smart Tours that you find in the Discover section.
Furthermore, it is possible to update a running Tour via the komoot app on your phone and share the navigation instructions on the go.
Attention: Updating the Tour is currently only possible for supported Garmin watches and by using the komoot navigation interface, not by the Garmin native navigation. Find out which Garmin devices support the komoot navigation here.
How to connect my device?
Currently, this feature is only available for Garmin devices which are supported for the komoot app for Garmin. We are working hard to makes this feature available for other devices. Click on the device partner in the table below to learn how to transfer your Tour to the device.
Note: Provided that your device is capable of importing GPX files, there is also the possibility of a manual transfer, regardless of whether the device is listed below or not. Find out how to do this here.

What are the requirements to send a Tour to Garmin?
This article explains all you need to know in order to send komoot Tours to Garmin and update them while navigating.
What's the advantage?
The "Send to Device" feature instantly sends a selected Tour to your connected device, downloads it and you are ready to go. With a Bluetooth- or profile connection Tours need to be saved to your profile and then synced with your device eg. via the partner app, so multiple steps are required to transfer your Tour.
