What settings should I use for my Fenix 5 Plus or Forerunner 945 with Garmin Power Courses?

Garmin Power Course and TCX Power Route files allow you to load your Best Bike Split race power plans onto your Garmin devices to use during your races. When running during a race, power alerts will pop up at the bottom of your screen to indicate the proper power target based on specific latitude and longitude points along the course. These courses must be manually loaded to your Garmin device as Garmin Connect does not yet support power alerts. Instructions for loading these files are shown below:

  1. Load Garmin Power Course via File Download (.fit) or with BBS Race Sync Connect IQ APP
  2. Go to Menu-> Navigation -> Courses -> Course Options and set Turn Guidance to Off
  3. Go to Menu-> Navigation -> Courses -> Course Options and set Off Crs. Warnings to Off
  4. Menu -> Settings -> Activity Profiles - (Your activity profile for race day) -> Segments Off
  5. Menu -> Settings -> Activity Profiles - (Your activity profile for race day) -> Navigation -> Routing
    1. Popularity Routing set to Off
    2. Routing Mode and set to Straight Line
    3. Lock on Road set to Off
    4. Avoidance Setup set all options to Off
    5. Recalculation set to Off
  6. Go to Menu -> Navigation -> Courses -> (BBS Course You are Racing) -> Settings -> Always Display and set to Off
  7. Go to Menu -> Navigation -> Courses -> (BBS Course You are Racing) -> Settings -> Course Points and set to On
