    Tips for Pairing ANT+ Accessories
    with Your Garmin Device

    • Verify that the ANT+ accessory
    is compatible with your Garmin
    • Before you pair the ANT+
    accessory with your Garmin device,
    move (33 ft. or 10 m) away from
    other ANT+ accessories.
    • Bring the Garmin device within
    range (10 ft. or 3 m) of the ANT+
    • 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
    eTrex Owner’s Manual

    accessory, and you can go near
    other accessories.
