    Garmin Connect ANT2 pairing with Forerunner 910

    I am an admitted triathlon-nerd. I had only saved one windows computer to upload Garmin data from my USB 305 until I discovered http://www.andreas-diesner.de/garminplugin/doku.php. It has served me well and I no longer have any computers running windows. (about 10 running Linux). For Christmas this year my wife gave me a Garmin 910 which relies on an ANT2 USB stick to upload data. So far I have been unable to get the stick paired or working in Ubuntu. If I can simply get the data into a file on my computer so I can upload it Training Peaks, I would be grateful.

    In a nutshell, what I am looking for is a way to pair the 910 to the ANT2 stick in Ubuntu 12.10. Any help would be appreciated.

    The Dynastream is the ANT2 stick

    Have you seen this http://blog.trails4you.de/2012/04/forerunner-910xt.html

    It describe a way to download fit files from the device to computer.

    With the latest gpsbabel you can also convert the fit files to gpx. Like this
    ~/src/gpsbabel-1.4.4/gpsbabel -i garmin_fit -f inputfile.FIT -o gpx,gpxver=1.1,garminextensions -F output.gpx

    Personally I have the 305 and I'm happy with it.

    I have the Edge 305 with a USB port which is no problem. I just can't seem to get the Garmin-extractor to work

    I can not test this, but maybe removing the ubuntu version of python-usb
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove  python-usb
    and install the one as described.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install python-pip
    sudo pip install pyusb
    then try as root to run the script:

    Code:
    sudo python garmin.py
    If it works then you can copy the udev rules and run garmin.py as normal user.
    I can not guarantee that this will work but I tested without the device and the script executes well.

    Thanks for the help. I still seem to have an issue.

    $ sudo python garmin.py
    python: can't open file 'garmin.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory

    You have to be in the same catalog as garmin.py. Garmin.py is a file from the Garmin-Forerunner-610-Extractor package. Just unpack it. And don't be afraid to ask.

    I wish I could help but I am pretty weak at this. Hopefully lt_gustavsen will jump in and help. My Garmin was then only thing left that kept me on Windows. After getting my 910 to pair with Ubuntu I am Golden. It has worked without fail. I even created a nice icon on my desktop that I click on then it pairs and saves the file as a .fit that I save and upload to my logs. I took me a while to get it working but in the end it was worth the fustration
