Strava add Custom WAYPOINTS in route sync to Garmin

strava Custom waypointStrava add Custom WAYPOINTS: Sync to Garmin

Custom Waypoints have long been available on cycling route planning platforms, even Garmin Connect has a great selection of custom waypoints that can be added to your newly planned routes to enrich their usefulness.

I used this on the PC interface and it will only be available if y ou are a subscriber.

Waypoints are automatically synced to Garmin Edge devices and when you follow the route, the custom WAYPOINT is shown in the list of other waypoints with a distance countdown as you approach it (UpAhead feature). A notification also appears on the bottom of the Edge when you get to the WAYPOINT.

This is a sometimes useful feature that requires a little bit of effort to use even though it is easy to use. Perhaps you will only add them when creating important routes, maybe even ones you share with others. I think that’s where the edge comes in, race or trip organisers who plan to get a lot of people from A to B can enhance the ride experience by adding extra richness into the routes they send to athletes – coffee stops, water stations

  1. This is useful not only for cyclists but also for runners. For example, this may be used to add aid stations on a race course when doing a trail race or water sources when doing a long self-supported run. I’ve been doing that for years, but now Strava makes that even easier.
