New Garmin Explore App Helps You Plan Your Next Trip

Garmin announced a new app to help you plan your trip and view maps you’ve previously stored on your device. Garmin Explore lets you...

  • Off-grid navigation solution pairs with compatible Garmin devices to sync and share data

  • Make the most of your adventures with trip planning, location sharing and tracking and cloud storage for waypoints, routes and tracks

  • Includes advanced mapping solutions, including topographic maps, public lands, aerial imagery and USGS quad sheets; unlimited access to maps on the app and cloud storage

  • Downloadable maps and navigation can be used anywhere, anytime without cell service requirements


Garmin Explore also provides free online access to let you download detailed topographic maps, color aerial imagery and other navigation aids directly to your mobile device. The Garmin Explore device management site offers unlimited data storage and useful trip planning tools as well as various customization options. Cloud-based tools let you wirelessly sync your planned adventures to your smartphone, tablet or compatible Garmin outdoor navigation product.

Garmin Explore isn't visible on the App Store yet, but hopefully will appear soon.

Update: September 10th, 2018 - Garmin pulled their YouTube videos introducing the app and updated their site to say that Garmin Explore will be "coming soon with the availability of the GPSMAP® 66 series"
