Garmin Connect

Provides a widget for displaying latest activities from Garmin Connect on your site

How can I display a map of my activity in a post?

Use the Garmin Connect shortcode in the body of your post. An example usage is as follows: [gcmap act="7964312" class="alignleft"].

The value for 'act' is the value at the end of your Garmin Connect activity URL, i.e. - http://connect.garmin.com/activity/7964312

The value for class is the CSS class that will be used. Appropriate values are 'alignleft', 'alignright', or 'aligncenter'. It may also be left blank. You may add your own CSS stylings in the garminconnect.css file.

Can the widget display in kilometers instead of miles?

Yes. Change your settings within Garmin Connect. Visit Garmin Connect Settings and on the 'Display Preferences' tab, changed 'Measurement Units' to 'Metric'

What causes the error message 'Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.'?

This is due to trying to activate the plugin using PHPv4. PHPv5 is required to use this plugin. Additional error message details state "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}'"

Why are no activities showing up?

In order for activities to show up in the widget, you must have given the activity a name in Garmin Connect. Ensure that activities do not have the name 'Untitled'.

Are private activities shown in the widget?
