Why doesn't this share maps with Garmin earthmate app? Now I need to download maps twice! Wasting a lot of phone storage.

It is a goog app for creating some segments, but has a bug and I will explain about what is this bug from what happened to me. I was on a running trail session, about 30km (with my fenix 5x) and at km 9 on a crossroad in the forest, i've wanted to check map to be sure that i'm on right road, and I opened app garmin explore (app was paired with my garmin account and my fenix). Somehow this was a wrong move from me , because after i finish running all distance after that 9 km wasnt recorded.

Can't do anything
Nice that the XT is now "supported", but explore does more harm than good. Unable to handle gpx files that have more than one track or route in them. Also, a bug ensures that traces are not visible on the zumo xt. As soon as you use explore, you can no longer turn individually on or off on the zumo tracks, they must first be placed in a collection. Very clumsy to use.

Basically good overview of getrAckte routes the addition of new routes is partly a problem or planned imported routes are partly not synchronized with the clock (fenix 6 saphire)

Its interface is not entirely intuitive. But after devoting some time it is possible to achieve an acceptable functionality. Tools like joining tracks, cropping, are missing, and the plotting system is very bad.

Garmin Explore™ - Product Description
Map, Track, Sync and Share Your Trek From Anywhere

For adventure seekers, explorers and outdoor enthusiasts, the Garmin Explore ecosystem offers a complete mobile navigation solution that  — when paired with a compatible Garmin device¹ — lets you map, track and navigate your trek from anywhere with unlimited cloud storage.

Garmin Explore provides basic trip planning or viewing of maps you’ve preloaded on your device. Or you can use the mobile app to pair your smart device via BLUETOOTH®² technology with a compatible Garmin GPS device, so you can do and see even more.

Access Online Connectivity 

Garmin Explore provides free online access to a wide range of additional capabilities. For example, you can download detailed topographic maps, color aerial imagery and other navigation aids directly to your mobile device. The maps and navigation data loaded onto your device can be used anywhere, anytime — even when you’re out beyond the reach of cellphone towers or internet connections.

Manage Your Collections, Tracks and Routes

Review and edit your waypoints, tracks, routes and activities in your library. Add them to a collection to keep all the recorded data from a certain trip together in one place. For example, if you’re taking a long trip, you can plan different waypoints, tracks and routes for each day of the trip and combine them into one collection.

Your Mobile Cloud Connection

The Garmin Explore app will send and store the waypoints, planned routes, GPS tracks and Garmin activities you've recorded in the cloud, allowing you to access and use that data on the Garmin Explore web site to plan or review your adventures. You can also sync your cloud-stored data with a compatible Garmin device. A Garmin account is needed to store your data in the cloud. Your activities (e.g., runs, walks, hikes, etc.) include data such as distance, pace, activity time, location, etc. that were recorded by your device.

More Off-grid Capability with inReach® Technology

Use Garmin Explore with your inReach enabled devices, such as the GPSMAP® 66i navigator and satellite communicator, to turn your mobile device into a true off-the-grid satellite companion. In an emergency, you can trigger an interactive SOS to the GEOS 24/7 emergency response team. Two-way messaging and LiveTrack location tracking via the 100% global Iridium® satellite network let you stay in contact globally. The Garmin Explore app allows you to access your phone’s contact list for easier messaging and sharing when connected.
