Does your Garmin support CIQ System 4 super Apps?
A new feature of CIQ System 4 is ‘super apps’. (Source: Garmin). I have no idea what they are but they sound great! 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!
|API Level <= 1.5.0||API Level <= 2.4.0||API Level <= 3.1.0||API Level >= 3.2.0|

My guess and feint recollection is that a CIQ super app is one that can be used as a page in a sports profile. If you use CIQ apps (not DFs, not widgets) then you will know that you have to run them on their own and separately to a sports profile. This always seemed bizarre to me and being able to add a whole page of developer goodness will be awesome eg DW Map might be able to add maps to any Garmin sports profile sold without maps!
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.
Remember some of the new features are hardware-dependent. So they just won’t work on older Garmin devices.
