Hey. I'm pretty pumped b/c I got a new Garmin 305 this weekend, but I'm still learning how to use all the functions, etc. Can anyone give me some advice on how I can download a saved workout to my training log? thanks. garyd

Garmin 305.(5 posts)
i'm still learning myself, just got mine a little after christmas...
i actually skipped over the garmin software itself and downloaded "ascent" from monetebello software http://www.montebellosoftware.com/ (yes, i am on a mac) they have a free trial if you don't want to pay up front. But i connect, hit command-L and my workout's immediately uploaded. if you google search you should be able to find 2-4 other pieces of software also available that mostly seem to have slightly better features than the garmin software.
I'm still plugging for sweat365 to get compatibility... would save me time and i could upload all my workouts.
Jeades, thanks for pointing out the link to ascent... that looks like a great piece of software for the mac.
We are working toward adding Garmin upload support soon. At the risk of getting into the technical details... we've been working this week on cleaning up some of our backend infrastructure that will allow us to more easily support import of Garmin and other external training logs.
Our current plan is to support import of Garmin history files, and also integrate with the Garmin browser plugin which would allow direct upload of activities directly from your device. However, I think Garmin only supports this plugin on Windows at this point. :( We'll let you know more when we are closer.
thanks guys for responding. sorry brad, I thought that I'd read that the Garmin downloads were already supported? I must have not read what I thought, plus I know that you use your Garmins a lot....
It is a fun new toy though! thanks as always.
I'm also using the 305, but haven't bothered installing the software yet. Would be great if sweat365 had support for that.
