How do I set up which notifications display on my Edge bike computer?

Controlling which notifications you see on your Garmin device is managed from your phone. Steps differ between Apple and Android.


Notifications are managed from the iOS notification setting on the phone.

  1. From the iPone select Settings.
  2. Select Notifications.
  3. From the top of the screen, make sure Show Previews is set to Always or When Unlocked. This is a setting required by Apple to display notifications on a Bluetooth paired device.
  4. A little farther down the screen, under NOTIFICATION STYLE, select the app you want to configure (e.g., Messages, Mail, etc.).
  • To SEE NOTIFICATIONS for a specific app on your Garmin device:
    • Allow Notifications should be toggled on.
    • Under ALERTS, make sure there is a check mark under Notification Center.
    • At the bottom, under OPTIONS or LOCK SCREEN APPEARANCE, you must have Show Previews set to either Always or When Unlocked. This is a setting required by Apple to display notifications on a Bluetooth paired device.
  • To DISABLE NOTIFICATIONS from displaying on your Garmin device:
    • Choose the app you want to control from the NOTIFICATIONS SETTINGS screen.
    • Under ALERTS, uncheck Notification Center. This will also result in notifications no longer appearing in the phone's notifications no longer appearing in the phone's notification center.

Repeat step 4 for each individual app to either allow or disable notifications from the app.


Controlling what notifications display on your Garmin device can be managed from the Garmin Connect app.

  1. Open the Garmin Connect app on your phone.
  2. Select menu bars (top left).
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Select Notifications.
  5. Select App Notifications.

From here, toggle to enable or disable all smart notifications or customize by selecting individual apps.
