Connect IQ: IQ Map Receiver

Are you an avid hiker that’s always seeking waypoints for specific locations? What if you could easily send waypoints from your mobile device directly to your fēnix 3? Well now you can with the IQ Map Receiver from the Connect IQ store. The IQ Map Receiver is an app that lets you send waypoints from Google maps, OSMAnd+, or GPX files to a number of compatible Garmin devices over a Bluetooth connection.

Traveling and forgot to install waypoints in advance? Now you can upload single waypoints using your phone and hold up to 250 different locations on your Garmin device. The IQ Map Receiver app is just one of many beneficial apps on the connect IQ Store and we hope that it will inspire you to get outside and hit the trails this winter.
