Get Your Site Key

Production

You must generate a site key to activate the Garmin browser plugin in a production environment. A valid URL is required to properly unlock the plugin.  Here are some examples of valid keys:

  • http://www.garmin.com
  • http://garmin.com (is not the same as www)
  • http://my.garmin.com
  • http://www.sharedblogsite.com/myusername (more specific to your portion of a shared site)

Note: URLs with a ‘/’ appended to the end (i.e. http://www.garmin.com/) generate a different key than the same URL without the ‘/’.

When generating your site key you will be prompted to agree to the Garmin API License Agreement. You must be logged in with your free myGarmin account.

Development

It is not necessary to have a key for development as long as your working locally using one of these protocols:

  • file:///
  • http://localhost
