Considering the main issue for most is getting a Garmin to be recognised, here is how I got my Garmin Edge 705 recognised some while ago, sorry.
I connected my Garmin 705 with USB lead and checked that it was showing up on my desktop. In my case as two files Garmin and New Volume, the latter is the memory card. (Ubuntu 12.04 with gnome-session-fallback)
Open Wine config and leave it open. Under the Drives tab hopefully there will be a showing /media/Garmin, highlight this and select Show Advanced. Change Type from Autodetect... to Floppy Drive and then Apply. Do not close Wine config or it may or may not revert to Autodetect.
Run Garmin Training Centre under Wine and you should now be able to download history from an Edge 705.
What does not
I have not fully tested the application but I didn't find anything.
What was not tested
The base map is poor and my attempts some while ago to install a more detailed map met with limited success. Anyway perhaps there are better mapping programs available.
Silver rating because the base map is inadequate. There is probably a solution to this.
