The Garmin Explore app was released a while back as an off-line solution for mapping/navigation.

With Garmin Explore you can follow your routes as well as sync’ing and sharing. Initially this was reserved to specialist Garmin handheld devices and, interestingly, also the newish Garmin Instinct (baby Fenix).

Fine. All well and good. It seemed to be a hiking-focussed app so why not add it to the Instinct first? Then it would be pretty obvious that the Fenix 5/5S Plus range would get it as well. Perhaps also the Fenix 5 non-Plus range. That made sense.

Except it seems better than that. This week’s new firmware for the 935 has support for Explore too and that mirrors what has already been delivered for the non-Plus Fenix 5 range in the previous firmware release.

There is no sign of Explore compatability on the VA3M/645 (ie nothing I can see in beta, so far)

Edit: Those looking for a feature-ruch CIQ mapping experience might want to check out DWMAP.
