Does your Garmin support CIQ System 4 super Apps?
Q: What is a Garmin Super App?
A: It’s a widget combined with an app (Garmin’s definition of a CIQ app). You can launch the app from its widget.
A new feature of CIQ System 4 is ‘super apps’. (Source: Garmin). The following table shows all the existing Garmin devices and which current CIQ version they support. If they support System 4 then YES you could get support for ‘super apps’…the reality will be hardware-dependent and whether or not Garmin choose to let individual models have certain features.
|SYSTEM 1||SYSTEM 2||SYSTEM 3 (ie CIQ 3)||SYSTEM 4 ie CIQ 3 but |
a different one to SYSTEM 3!

Garmin says that the system number tells us the set (or group) of devices that meet the minimum API level. So it will be interesting to see if tomorrow’s(?) Garmin Venu 2 will be System 4/API 3.2.0…I would guess it will be and it will support API level 4 when available.
