 +=== Activation of Premium mode === 
 +Go to //Locus Map > Locus Store > Features > Locus Map for Garmin// and purchase it from there. To do so, you will have to have at least 299 LoCoins in your Locus Store account, which can be purchased in-app. You don't need to purchase Locus Map Pro in order to activate Locus Map for Garmin Premium features. Purchase of both apps are separated, because they are developed by separate companies.

-====Map screen is not refreshing; zoom doesn't work==== 
-Latest Connect IQ 3.1 which most of the recent Garmin devices already received via firmware update have bug which cause this behaviour and brake user experience of map screen in our app. The bug is on Garmin side, they are aware of it and we are waiting for them to fix it. Before that, you can disable map screen in application settings. If you still want to use map in the application, please note, that map is refreshed only if you come to it from different screen - like that you can update also zoom.

 +==== Getting code/error 0 when track import or on map screen ====
 +Recent versions of Garmin Connect which provides connectivity between Garmin device and smartphone are unable to transfer binary data to Connect IQ app if Internet is not available even if transferred data is stored on smartphone. In such case, the app now throws error 0. We are in touch with Garmin team about this issue and hope it will be solved soon.

 Due to issue in Garmin Connect Mobile, it may rarely happen that you get this error while trying to start application. From this error app usually do not recover by itself. In order to initialise app properly, please disconnect your Garmin from phone and reconnect it again. You can quickly do it by opening round context menu on your watch (by holding light button on non-touch devices or select button on touch devices) and use Phone connection option. After that the app should initialise properly. Due to issue in Garmin Connect Mobile, it may rarely happen that you get this error while trying to start application.
