in this thread I proposed a feature and was told it was a great idea which I should definitely share here instead. So let's do that...
Whenever you want to have live segments on your Garmin device, it will only sync the last 100 segments you have starred/favorited. Sometimes you might have a lot of starred segments, such as segments from multiple different activity types (in my case, "Ride", "Nordic skiing" and "Virtual Ride"/Zwift). Sometimes you might have lots of them just because you've used them to keep track of nice climbs you want to visit, around your country or even abroad.
However, if you want to go to a specific location or ride a specific route, for example when planning a vacation, you would probably want to sync only one portion of these starred segments to your Garmin, to get Live Segments while e.g. cycling.
Today this is a very tedious process: I am planning a summer vacation and had to go through 28 pages of starred segments (about 25 segments per page?) and unstar them all, one by one (for all activity types and so on), which took a lot of time and now I have basically lost all my favorites. Next, I had to sync to Garmin (i.e. remove all live segments), then go through all the routes I aim to do this summer and star all the nice climbs I want to ride. They were already starred previously, but I did not have the capacity to "filter" them easily while unstarring many hundred segments... Finally, sync to Garmin again.
Now to the idea: I wish I could go to some sort of "Segment explore" map view with all my starred segments and select for which "regions of interest" I want to sync the segments for (to Garmin) and for which activity types (e.g., to avoid it from syncing segments from virtual rides or nordic skiing when I go for summer vacation).
Alternatively, give me some way to to automatically sync all my favorite segments that are part of or really close to the routes I have recently starred...
Feel free to support this idea with improvements or simplifications 🙂
