What 3 Words

Post by simoncrewe »

Not sure if you guys are familiar with this:
I have just been playing with what 3 words. If you look up a location on your smart phone and click on 'Navigate', you get the option to send the data to Garmin drive. With the XT switched on with a signal, the unit then starts to navigate to the location. I thought it was not working whilst indoors - I went outside & got a gps signal & the XT started navigating to the location & stored the coordinates in history.

When I try that, Garmin Drive isn’t an option.

Not sure why not.

Maybe it's an 'Android' thing, I am using it on a Huawei.
