Can't Get Tracker To Work

Post by mad2ride » Fri Jun 08, 2018 7:29 am

Hello everyone,

Thanks for starting this after the demise of the other site.

I decided to go from my trusty 660 to a Navigator 6, among other reasons, because of the tracker feature to let my wife see where I am. I like to ride on my own and after 30+ years and hundreds of thousands of miles of riding I came off in France. I ended up in hospital for a week. My wife had gone home to Slovakia with the kids to see her family so it was a bit hard to get a hold of her. Now she is very nervous when I ride on my own.

So far I've had no luck getting anything useful. I can send the email with the link but it just leads to a blank page with a Garmin header. The email also had a link for an ios and and android tracker app which doesn't exist anymore.

I also tried getting Facebook to work but even after allowing every access and my Facebook app saying that myGarmin is active and allowing social media as well as ticking facebook in the smartphone link app the Navigator says enable face book on phone. I'm not really keen on showing anybody but my wife where I am anyway.

Is anyone having any luck with this.

I am not using those functions, but while ago tried sent e-mail with location from NAV, and it worked fine. Will check If it is still working and will let you know.

Thanks for checking. I was just going to post that it was working. I think the problem was that it doesn't work in the Channel Islands but does in the UK.

I was up in the UK with the bike and as you say it worked fine but when I tried it in Guernsey, no luck.

Contact Garmin support. I suppose that this freature shoud work in every region where Smartphone link connection is available.
