This blog is about travelling through Japan on a foldable bicycle (Brompton) but also by train, ferry, plane, bus or any other transport, if sea, weather, mountains or the like come between me and my desire to ride.
I have tried to summarise information that could be potentially helpful also for other bicycle travellers through Japan, such as list of bicycle roads, helpful web pages etc. Once I start my ride, I will upload the actual routes taken, together with some pictures and description.

Garmin trouble shooting

Here the link to the Garmin User Manual: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8I_NrjVpBkOMWRyOWJOZjVQZWs/view?ths=true
But still I somehow don't manage to connect the Garmin through Bluetooth...

What however works is the following:

  1. Connect Garmin and iPad to the same Wifi (e.g. iPhone personal wifi)
  2. Open connect.garmin.com in Safari on iPad
  3. Go to courses and select the course to be transferred to the Garmin device
  4. Select "Send to device"
    • This will result in a pop up asking "Open this page in "Connect"
    • Click "Open"
  5. Then the iPad automatically open Connect app and shortly after the course is uploaded to the Garmin device.
It should also be possible from the Connect app directly, but apparently not without properly connecting it to Bluetooth...
