Ideas: App for Garmin Connect IQ

Ideas: App for Garmin Connect IQ

Status: Open Ideas

I just purchased a Garmin Forerunner 245 Music and was so disappointed that Spotify has an app for Garmin but Pandora does not. When I started running, I specifically chose Pandora premium because I prefer you over Spotify. I had to purchase a Spotify premium account so that I can listen to music on my new running watch. PLEASE create a Garmin compatible app so that I don't have to completely switch to Spotify. Thanks!

Same boat and after nearly 2 decades am leaving Pandora for spotify.  Didn't want to go but need music on my garmin for running.

I agree.  If Pandora doesn't have a Garmin app soon, I'll have to switch to Spotify as well.  I'd much rather keep my Pandora premium subscription that I have had for years.

Please Pandora, this should be a given for a platform the size of Garmin's.

I finally shelled out the big bucks for a Garmin watch so I didn't have to lug my phone with me when I ran. I knew going into it that there was no Pandora support, but I bought a music-enabled model in hopes that an app will be available someday.

I'm going to remain a Premium subscriber, no matter what - the music genome recommendations are so much better than the competitions' that I'll endure this additional Pandora limitation. It's just one more thing, though, on top of the smaller music library, poorer streaming quality, perpetually flaky Android app, lack of Windows app, random licensing changes from downloadable to radio-only albums... Please, developers, throw us a bone?

Also, for the folks commenting here, remember to click the Like / Heart button at the top of the page. If this feature request forum works like those from other software vendors, I assume that more likes means it will get more attention. At the moment, I see 32 comments, but only 14 likes. Worst case, it's a placebo, but worth a try for the minimal effort it takes. Thanks.

@funkified Thanks for the suggestion of clicking the Like button (Heart) at the top of the page. I wasn't aware that developers might put a higher priority on the Like count rather than the comment count.

I've been a Pandora listener for 20 years, preferred over all other music services. Today, I had to cancel my subscription and switch to Spotify because I can't play Pandora on my Garmin watch. My training runs can go 4-5 hours, that's a long time with nothing to listen to.

The lack of a Pandora app is frustrating for sure on my Garmin Fenix 6x Pro Solar. Not a fan of Spotify so I guess I'll have to use my Amazon Music subscription.

I can’t believe Pandora isn’t on Garmin yet. I’ve been waiting and waiting and am going to have to switch my family to Spotify. Absolutely ridiculous.

We need a Garmin app

Local Performer

I concur. Please develop a Garmin app.

I'm with all of you on this issue. If its not added I may never upgrade my garmin for a newer one
