Hi Nancy,
Already on the case!

As a quick-and-dirty fix, the Garmin driver downloads your data from the 405 as tcx files and puts them in the folder '/Users/your_username/Library/Application Support/Garmin/Devices/your_device_id/History'. You should be able to import the .tcx files from there into iSMARTtrain.

Of course, we're working on making it a lot easier to use than that! I'm going to try to get my hands on a 405 this week to replace my aging FR301.

Let me know if you have any problems,

Thanks & Regards

Stuart

Thanks for that info..... Looking forward to importing right into IST so I don't have to use the nasty Garmin Connect.

By the way, have you thought about taking iSMARTtrain to a web-based service????

Hi Stuart - I'm wondering if you can give me some advise on getting my Garmin Foreunner 405CX to work with ismarttrain on the mac? I've just moved from a Polar 625X with the IR Adaptor and wanted to combine speed with my HR. I have followed your previous post about importing the TCX from the ~Garmin/Devices/History folder and this works fine. However, I don't get a readable Data Graph display in ismarttrain.

Everything seems to work fine and I get a Diary that looks correct with all the correct values:

However, the Data Graph is a confused mess:

This is what it looks like in Garmin Connect:

Am I doing something wrong or are you working on this one already?

Thanks again
Jason

The file looks OK in Garmin Connect so I know it's not a corruption.

Hi Jason,
I think this is fixed in the V3.0.6 Betas that we're testing at the moment - which version are you experiencing this problem with?

Regards

Stuart

I have the same issue that the 405CX doesn't graph properly using 3.0.5. everything else looks good. Will 3.0.6 support the ANT? Can't wait I have a Edge 705 on the way too. Love the program by the way.

Hi Stuart,

I'm having trouble with the Garmin 405 importing into iSmarttrain too. The heart rate data is OK, but the graph is a mess with a lot of less than 30s. I'm using the latest version 3.0.9.

I'm posting, so I can be notified when a fix is done.
