Linking a Partner App
Partner apps use a secure linking method called a Partner Access Code (PAC) to access your account.
To allow partner apps to access your dynamicWatch account, go to Third Party Partner Apps in Settings. Click where it says Click to enable a Partner Access Code and a 7-character code (called a Partner Access Code or PAC) will be generated. You only need to do this once, and you can use the same PAC with all of your linked partner apps.
If you later want to revoke access to your account from all partner apps, you can delete the PAC in Third Party Partner Apps in Settings.
Setting Up a Partner App
Each partner data field, watch face or app may have a different way of entering the PAC. In most cases, go into its settings in Garmin Connect Mobile on your phone and enter the code there. Then when you start the watch face, data field or app itself on your Garmin device it will use the entered code and download your current active route from your dynamicWatch account.
Choosing a Current Route
Most partner apps will download and use the route that you have chosen as your current active route on the dynamicWatch website.
Click on the next to a route in your route list to set it as your current active route, which will be then marked with a .
You can change the current active route at any time. Most partner apps will check to see if there is a new route when they start, and may offer a way to refresh the route while they are active also.
Linking a dynamicWatch App
Our own apps dwMap, routeCourse and mapField continue to use the in-app 8-character link code method. See their Get Started guide.
