What works

Program installs and runs without any errors but no recognition that a Garmin Edge 705 is USB connected. Initially I am unable to import history and a web search confirms this as an issue. Using Ubuntu I am able find and copy my .tcx history files from my Garmin onto the Desktop.

After installing the garmintools package (under Ubuntu it's garmin-forerunner-tool ver 0.10-2) I was able to import my .tcx file one by one from my Ubuntu Desktop and successfully display my ride data so obtaining some meaningful information for analysis.

What does not

A Garmin 705 connected by USB lead is not recognised as being connected by the Garmin Training Centre software (even though it is recognised by Ubuntu). The program also report no USB drivers installed.


What was not tested

The option to display rides on  Googlearth. Perhaps I'd need to install and run GoogleEarth under Wine for this to work?

Additional Comments

A USB connection not recognised, seems like a similar problem to that which I'm having with TomTom Home under Wine. Ubuntu will recognise my Garmin and TomTom so perhaps there's a common issue with Wine's USB procedures. Why is it recognised as /media/USB0 for example?
