Uploading *.gpx route to Garmin Edge

After I got the Garmin Edge 530, the upload of the route to the device always confused me, so I created this cheat sheet:

Uploading the route to the Garmin

Option #1 – upload directly via USB

Copy the *.gpx file with the route to /Garmin/NewFiles/.

Option #2 for Apple users – upload via iPhone Garmin app and AirDrop

Option #3 – upload via Garmin Connect (and mobile/desktop app)

On the Garmin website...

Then in iOS app...


Selecting the route in Garmin Edge 530 for navigation

(bring up main menu) → Training → Training plan → Find a course → (select course) → Ride
