Garmin forerunner & linux

, 17:13 - Lien permanent

I'm a owner of a Garmin Forerunner 305. To use it under linux, there are two ways.

Use of my.garmin.com

There is a plugin to install on firefox to be able to retrieve data from the garmin, and send data to the website my.garmin.com . Simply add the following repository in ubuntu/debian and install garminplugin

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:andreas-diesner/garminplugin

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install garminplugin

The main page for this project is http://www.andreas-diesner.de/garminplugin

Local use of data

In the first part, data are all uploaded and stored by garmin. you have no data on your computer, and you can't get them! In linux, you can store the data from the forerunner with the following program, available in the normal repository, with garmin_save_runs. The package name is garmin-forerunner-tools . The main website for the project is http://code.google.com/p/garmintools/ . Now you are able to convert these data and end them to different programs
