    New question here. Garmin Edge and Trailforks - record ride?

    Will the Trailforks app for the Garmin Edge devices let me record a ride the same way the Trailforks smartphone app does? Will it auto transfer ride log/data to my Trailforks account? Or will I have to manually transfer the data from the Garmin Edge or from Garmin Connect into Trailforks?

    none of the above.

    The trailforks app for Garmin IQ is just for getting trails/rides FROM Trailforks TO the Garmin. It doesn't do anything the other direction.

    You also don't have to do any manual data transfers, either. Many websites have the ability to "connect" services and automatically share your rides. When I plug my Garmin in to my computer to charge, or when I upload my ride through my phone, it automatically uploads my ride(s) to Garmin Connect, which automatically sends my rides to Strava and RideWithGPS because I set up those connections. I don't know if Trailforks will communicate directly with Garmin Connect, but it WILL communicate directly with Strava, so Strava can be used as an intermediate in a worst case scenario.
