Hey Kenny - what's the best way for us to get tracks onto AP with a Sierra upgrade? I was using Safari and the GC plugin on AP, but looks like Garmin Communicator no longer plays, despite the fact it says it's installed and senses my watch.

Thank you!

Sierra - Ooo! Bad move. Upgraded yesterday and nothing but trouble since. Mac just froze and had to turn off power to free it up. Also have trouble printing from ocad - very slow, and things in general are slower. Want to undo.

As for your question: Go to Finder>(Your computer main file)>Library>Application Support>Garmin>GarminConnect>(Your Device)>Upload>FIT_TYPE_4> You get to a listing of .fit files by date. I just drag the one(s) I want to the Upload section of Add Training. Garmin wouldn't acknowledge my password from years ago, so screw them and Connect.

Mr Wonderful:
I don't know the best way.

My Garmin can appear as a usb drive, so I have it set that way and usually grab fit files via file upload. I'm guessing that is not an option for your device.

I did check, and Garmin Express works on Sierra, and you can use the gc web sync (if you can remember your password, for some reason that must not be in my usual set). But it worked when I hit up keychain for the password.

Yeah, Rob told me not to even try on my older machine, but that also updated this week and GC won't work on that either!

No problems with Sierra yet, but it hasn't been long!

Becks, your 220 (and other Garmins with a 4-pin charging clip) should appear as a USB drive when you have it plugged in. If that much is working, use "upload files" and pick the new FIT file(s) from the /garmin/activity/ folder (sorting by date helps this a lot).

@walk Garmin Connect forces a password change at some interval. The error message you get from AP doesn't make it obvious that this is the problem(which is fair enough the behaviour is odd). So if its an old account you said you had this could be the issue. Go to their website and try login.

No thanks. I'm fine without. AP provides what I need.
