It is obviously not as slick, but I'm not sure I'd pay the 99 bucks for 'trainer road'. This unique tool can detect your device within 3 meters from your computer and transfer data. The application will run in your computer's background, silently and without interrupting any other processes your computer already has in progress. Automatically detects any Garmin wearables paired with the computer that is withing transfer range and downloads the new information from them. There is nothing clever about them. As someone said, the Sunnito stick seems to be much better and smaller than the Garmin - I leave mine in the Macbook the whole time, it's that unobtrusive. So if someone could help me out there that would help.
But you have either hidden the download so well that I can't find it or you do not have access to the software. The software lies within System Utilities, more precisely Device Assistants. Garmin are not the best at explaining things! Mikey23 wrote:I don't know trainer road but if you have an 800 and a gsc10 then you have all you need to give you speed and cadence data. For certain turbos the software will know approximately what power each speed corresponds to. It is not hard to design sessions using a book from the library , or possibly on-line.
Relevant data is downloaded automatically. Or be honest and say 'sorry that software is no longer available. I am looking to do the same as you on TrainerRoad and getting very confused as to what it is that I need. These data can be transferred both automatically and manually. It's a great tool and well worth the subscription. I will be using this on a macbook.
This free program was originally designed by Garmin Ltd or its subsidiaries. The tool automatically transfers the downloaded information to the Garmin Connect, so it requires the service in order to work. With the application, you will be able to manage your tool freely and maintain track of your accomplishments, as well as your rate of improvement. The application is convenient, and downloads quickly and painlessly! I am unable to get on the road due to a shoulder operation but am allowed to use a turbo trainer. As for Amazon being my first stop, that is where some of the confusion arises as I have seen some that appear only to be compatible with Forerunner. It manages time, calorie count, schedules and regiment parameters.
. Then download TrainerRoad and look forward to some pain Thanks' for the advice guys. If this is the case then you don't need an ant+ stick which enables wireless communication I am similarly confined due to a shoulder op and by linking my gsc10 with my 500, I have the info I need on the 500 as I cycle and can download it to garmin connect and strava afterwards. That'll be much easier once you have the turbo. I logged into trainerroad and found the various downloads I needed there,downloaded them,set the garmin up on the bike cadence and speed sensors ,followed the video on trainerroad on how to pair and it worked a treat albeit for a poor signal,but just moved the laptop a bit closer and seems to be going ok so far now.
Again thanks' in advance for any suggestions. Does Trainer road need the Garmin software? On every single page from your company are your featured downloads - none of which I want or need. I'm sure it will be on the garmin website somewhere also. The Suunto stick seems to be a favourite looking at this and previous posts. Thanks' in advance for any assistance with this.
Make sure you check out the Trainer Road thread on the Training forum too. Later these data can be transferred to Garmin Connect or Garmin Training Center applications, where you can process your fitness data. This product is a software, so it can be used and downloaded onto your computer without the need for a physical product. D Dave I have asked for a download of Garmin Ant Agent. If you want a Power measurement I'd get a Turbo that Trainer Road have calibrated.
If you do need an ant stick I would think amazon is first stop. Please excuse me if I'm talking hogwash or haven't understood your needs. If you want to test that it works, prior to purchasing Trainer Road, you could test it by down-loading golden cheetah: You'll need to be in the 'train' view. Importing information from third-party applications through the desktop client is also possible. I don't know trainer road but if you have an 800 and a gsc10 then you have all you need to give you speed and cadence data.

As such, it can be used anytime and anywhere and can be easily utilized on multiple home computers at once without the need for multiple purchases or downloads. Please, can you clean up this site so that people who ask for a specific download can find what they are looking for? I don't think a mac needs a driver. The data will then transfer upon confirming the exchange of information on your computer. I've downloaded and installed the plug-in communicator but I think theres more to it that that. .
