Sports+ is the first for the NO CODE SYSTEM

I’ve been working hard to bring this update to all my apps. This feature will reduce setup, and remove code/email system.


The new system is secure*, backwards compatible, self-learning, and forward compatible.

Existing users will get an app update, enter their code one last time, the app will validate the email/code and that’s it. Do this for each app or once with the all apps code. After validated, no code is necessary, just enter your validated PayPal email.

New users will still get a code but will not need to enter the code, just enter your PayPal email. System will validate and enter the unlock code automatic.

Older Email/Code is still supported for EPIX user and all other devices who received codes.

How to use:

If your watch connected to the INTERNET, enter your PAYPAL email in to the Yellow Circle (shown below).

With Garmin Connect App running on your phone, start the Sports+ app with Garmin Connect APP running on the Phone, at the start screen THE RED BAR will automatically be removed if your purchase was for Sports+ and using your PAY PAL email.

If the BAR is not removed and receive a CODE listed below, enter PayPal email/code with and it will unlock. No code will be needed again.

The Splash Screen will have new Error Codes

No Internet Access – Phone is not connected to the Internet

BUG: “Settings Menu is missing in Connect”

Thanks to Ulrik the Android Connect missing setting menu has a workaround.

I’ve encountered the “Settings Menu is missing in Connect” bug multiple times. It seems to be related to having favorited your apps. All the apps that’s listed under favorites is missing this settings menu.

Having discovered this I’ve also found a better workaround than uninstalling the app (and thus losing all the settings), only tested on phone:
* Unfavorite the app
* Kill the Garmin Connect app on the phone
* Start the Garmin Connect app again and the settings menu should be present
* The app can the be configured once again. After configuration the app can be favorited again, but this will most likely cause the settings menu to disappear upon app (Garmin Connect) restart, which will the require using the workaround again.
