computer (Transferring Files to Your Device, page 10). You
can place the geocache files into a GPX file and import them
into the GPX folder on the device. With a premium membership
to geocaching.com, you can use the "pocket query" feature to
load a large group of geocaches onto your device as a single
GPX file.
1 Connect the device to your computer using a USB cable.
2 Go to www.geocaching.com.
3 If necessary, create an account.
4 Sign in.
5 Follow the instructions at geocaching.com to find and
download geocaches to your device.

Pairing Your ANT+ Sensors
Before you can pair, you must put on the heart rate monitor or
install the sensor.
NOTE: This feature is not available for all device models.
Pairing is the connecting of ANT+ wireless sensors, for example,
connecting a heart rate monitor with your device.
1 Bring the device within 3 m (10 ft.) of the sensor.
NOTE: Stay 10 m (30 ft.) away from other ANT+ sensors
while pairing.
Appendix
2 From the app drawer, select Setup > ANT Sensor.
3 Select your sensor.
4 Select Search For New.
When the sensor is paired with your device, the sensor status
changes from Searching to Connected.
Tips for Pairing ANT+ Accessories with Your Garmin
Device
• Verify that the ANT+ accessory is compatible with your
Garmin device.
• Before you pair the ANT+ accessory with your Garmin
device, move 10 m (33 ft.) away from other ANT+
accessories.
• Bring the Garmin device within range 3 m (10 ft.) of the ANT+
accessory.
• After you pair the first time, your Garmin device automatically
recognizes the ANT+ accessory each time it is activated. This
process occurs automatically when you turn on the Garmin
device and only takes a few seconds when the accessories
are activated and functioning correctly.
• When paired, your Garmin device receives data from only
your accessory, and you can go near other accessories.
Troubleshooting
Restarting the Device
If the device stops responding, you may need to restart it. This
does not erase any of your data or settings.
1 Remove the batteries.
2 Reinstall the batteries.
