Garmin Connect App

I select Garmin Connect as an app I want to sync with MFP, and it takes me to the Garmin Connect website but then a message appears that the page is no longer available. How do I connect my Garmin with MFP?

    Try going to your play store and searching for it and download from there.

    You started the MFP side by selecting that - now you have to find the option on the Garmin side that tells it to actually send the data to MFP.
    Appears Garmin changed the page and either didn't tell MFP or MFP hasn't updated the link yet.

    Go to your Daily Summary under Calories.

    If the MFP request for connect made it to Garmin - it should show link (or perhaps button on app) to allow that connection.

    I’m having the same issue. When I go into Garmin connect, it says to log meals in My Fitness Pal to show the calories, and gives me a link to open the MFP app, so seems to be connected, but nothing happens when I log food. There’s a disconnect somewhere!

    Same problem here. connect.garmin.com/mfp is just redirecting to my garmin connect dashboard without ever pairing MFP with my garmin.

    2 posts up is steps to take to finish the Garmin side of the link.
    Calories In/Out section - Settings
    Or on that section page.
    Link to finalize sync, or if it's connected, option to Sync shows up.

    This doesn't help. The only option available on the calories in/out screen in Garmin connect is "Log Calories in MFP". Selecting this will open the MFP app but will not connect the two apps.

    Well, the 2 apps don't literally connect or sync with each other.

    Each app syncs with it's own account server.

    The 2 servers sync your account info.

    I was referring to the web login on the Garmin side, and starting the link process from the web MFP account too.
    Just in case that isn't being done.

    There's no way to make the two apps talk to each other anymore, from either side.

    Have you tried going to the apps page on MFP from the website instead of the app?

    Yes. My fitness pal points to an garmin link that no longer exists. Can't connect the two any more.

    Did this ever get resolved? I’m having the exact same problem as scarlet_k.

    Nope. Still can't connect my device as the garmin URL MFP sends us to doesn't exist any more. Come on chaps, pull your fingers out of your behinds.

    Come on Garmin, give MFP the new landing site.

    Can't be a global problem, still working fine for me.

    It's only for initial linking - not when already syncing.

    I'm not willing to risk my connection to test if I can find where the Garmin page is moved to in order to finish the process.

    Yeah it works fine if your device is already linked. I only had a problem when I removed my device and tried to add the replacement I have.
