Import from Garmin 305 - is it still possible?

Postby EarthSongWoman » Sun Aug 05, 2018 10:01 am

I have an old Garmin 305 - but can't get garmin express to recognise I attach it to my PC. So I can't import any of its data. I am on Windows 10. Is it still possible to use this device and import data or is it just too old? I have installed garmin express ok, and the device charges ok from my PC.

Anyone still using such an old HRM? Is there a work around if its old?

Thanks for any help

Try the Garmin USB importer, worked last time I used the 305 (still a good device)

I am still importing from an Edge 305 using both ST USB Importer and also Garmin Training Center v3.6.5

Garmin Training Center will also work from "intermediate aged" .fit Garmin devices (e.g. Edge 500 and early firmware 520's).
GTC will export tcx which can be loaded into ST or elsewhere. GTC will also still allow courses with .fit course import/export.

This looks like might be ok place to get GTC https://garmin-training-center.soft32.com/

I am using GTC with OpenStreetMap as well as garmin worldwide maps.

Thank you - I now have the 305 working with sporttracks and express - the training center dowload made it work - the link to the old usb plugin came up not found.
Thank you for your help

@Admin - Has the Garmin USB Importer been pulled? There are still many users of this plugin.
