To get started for setting up your Garmin VIRB 360, please download the JobWalk app to your mobile Android or iOS device and log in. You can learn more about how to work with the JobWalk app in the dedicated article.

Connecting from within the JobWalk app (recommended process)

Start the JobWalk App and download/update an existing project or create a new project. Add a new floor plan/sheet or select an existing sheet of the project. Tab on the sheet to place the first image. Follow the instructions below or on the app screen for setting up the corresponding camera connection for your Garmin VIRB 360.

Alternatively, it is also possible to first establish the connection of your mobile device with the camera and open the JobWalk app in a second step. This way you can directly start capturing on your project.  Simply follow the steps below for connecting to the Garmin VIRB 360.
When editing an existing project, please make sure to have your HoloBuilder project downloaded/updated before connecting to the camera.

Only when the camera is connected via the internal Wi-Fi Network of the Garmin VIRB 360 camera, you can use your smartphone with the JobWalk App to capture images on-site and place them directly on a sheet.

2. On your VIRB 360 camera, from the main menu, select Wireless > Wi-Fi, and select the Wi-Fi toggle switch to turn on the Wi‑Fi radio.

TIP: You can also hold the 'Wi-Fi' button for two seconds to quickly turn the Wi‑Fi radio on or off.
