Is this device actually supported ?

I was so exited about this plugin when I got my 410, so exited I found it very fair to donate right away :-). Plugin isn't able to read my garmin 410's user profile or read the current workouts, show me the msg that the 410 isn't supported. Hopefully 410 wil get support soon, let me know what I can do to aid in thsi development.

Thanks.

The device it self doesn't support the importing features wen using the Communicator device.

You can probably import workouts directly from the file by heading to you ANT Agent folder (see here for the directories)

For the profile, I wonder if it's even available... If the file is in the ANT Agent folder I could add a file import for profile very easily.

The reason the import doesn't work for the Communicator plugin remains unclear. I think it's because the ANT Agent deals with TCX files and the watch supports FIT files. Therefore some workout features would not get transfered from the watch (FIT files support more things than the TCX format). Hopefully one day they'll add FIT support to the ANT Agent.

The profile is available in the ant data folder as are the workouts.

C:\Users\Jo en Lau\AppData\Roaming\GARMIN\Devices\3818356800\Profile

contains the file "UserProfile.TCX"

Checked the contains in wordpad and all the settings are a match to my garmins setup.

With the working directory setup the workouts sync perfectly after export. So everything is looking good! Very happy this final bit from the garmin training center is available within sporttracks. Thanks for the work ... I was happy to donate!

I'll add an option to import/export profile from/to file.

That would really rock. Specially if we could keep this in sync with sporttracks his user data and zones.

Meaning if I change weight or zones in sporttracks your garmin plug notices this and updates the userprofile.tcx. But only if there was a change.

I'm sure you know this already, but don't forget ANT Agent only sends away the userprofile if the timestamp is update.

I implemented the file export/import this mornning, will be in next release.

As for ST sync, it's not as easy as it seems. Maybe for a future version, it's not high in the priorities, sorry. You can list a request on the GoogleCode page so it doesn't get forgotten..

You already made me very happy! Looking forward to the update!

Another thing I noticed is that ANT Agent only syncs TCX workout files from the workout directory. I noticed when you use any other repeat option then by number the plugin exports as FIT only. Not sure but I'm guessing TCX files don't support the repeating patterns as such?

Yes exactly. The FIT format is relatively new and not so well supported by Garmin themselves. They added FIT support to the PC version of GTC only a couple of weeks ago so I'm not sure when they'll add it to the ANT Agent. In the mean time, TCX it is...

Forgot to reply on this matter.

Big thanks for adding the profile feature! It's simpel but works very well this way!

One small bug .... your exporting the file as "Profile.TCX" while it should be "UserProfile.TCX".

Thanks cil, you rock!
