Garmin route navigation while in XERT workout player


I enjoy the xert workout player when riding outside. A I frequently use routes which I have created in Komoot or Strava, I also need the route navigation capabilities of my Garmin.
Is it possible to use the navigation simultaneously when using the workout player on the road?

If the Xert workout player behaves like an extra screen, then yes. If it’s taking focus as a single screen, then you’re out of luck…

I have the same problem.

Is it possible to export te Xert workout so I can import it as a (non SMART) workout into my Garmin. I know I will lose the the SMART part of the workout but I would like to use this for long endurance workouts.

It is a bummer you can not acces your normal screens when in a workout.

How do other users do this?

Provided the workout doesn’t have too many steps (50+), you can export the .tcx file from the workout designer and load the file into your Garmin via a computer (drag the .tcx into Garmin Edge XXX/Garmin/NewFiles. When you restart your Edge device, the workout should be in your ‘Workouts’ on the device.

Hope this helps!
