Syncing with MapMyHike dervari — Jan 25, 2017 03:30PM PST

I have a Garmin Fenix 3 which syncs to MapMyHike. I'm not getting the MMH workouts synced into MFP. Does MFP only sync workouts the originate with MMH or should it sync with any workout that is in MMH, regardless of whether it was imported, synced with a device, etc?

Basicially, I'm looking at this type of sync...

Garmin -> MapMyHike -> MFP

Thank you for taking the time to contact us.

In theory, this should sync your exercises over to MyFitnessPal for you. Although this is not always the most reliable connection because it is not direct. After looking into the status of your account we do see some exercise data from MMH, please not that only present and future exercises will transfer over.

Thanks. I have no issue with activities recorded using the MMH app transferring, but I'm wanting activities that sync from my Garmin Fenix to MMH to flow over to MFP. I took a walk during lunch today and while it did sync from Garmin -> MMH, it didn't flow from MMH -> MFP.

Thanks for getting back in touch with us.

Let’s try connecting Garmin to MyFitnessPal as well. I see that you already have Fitbit connected, and set to your step source so in theory you shouldn’t get any weird cross info or errors, but they are both all day activity trackers so this can sometimes cause some trouble. So, if you do start to see things getting a little weird numbers wise I would suggest disconnecting Garmin from MyFitnessPal.

The connection must first be initiated within the Garmin Connect app or Garmin Website, not with MyFitnessPal. (Please make sure you have the most up to date versions of both apps).

In the Garmin app, you will start by opening the Menu screen, by clicking on the three line icon in the upper left. If using the iOS app, then go to More>Settings>3rd Party Apps>MyFitnessPal.

If using Android, select Fitness, followed by Calories swipe through those pages to link Calories In/Out. You will then swipe right to left through the additional screens and select Get Started on the last screen.

On their site,, you will also start in the Menu, clicking the three line icon in the upper left. Next select Calories In/Out where you should see the option to connect.

Once you have connected on the Garmin side, we recommend going to our main website at, then to the Apps tab, and double check on the right hand side of the page under “Your Apps” to make sure Garmin is now listed there.
