>News and Announcements>Garmin Forerunner Integration completed
Love the GPS integration but I've had problems with the upload several times. It stops occasionally during "receiving tracks" and freezes up my browser so that I have to shut it down. This has happened to me in IE and FF. It just happened about 10 minutes ago in fact (in FF), so it wasn't solved with your recent bug fix. Also, the time of day that it uploaded wasn't DST though my garmin has the right time. Or maybe that's a problem with my garmin setup?
Otherwise, when it works, it's like magic! Thank you!
I'm creating a list of enhancements for GPS graphing. I'm considering allowing you to specify the smoothing range, as well as whether to hide the actual data so you can better see the smoothed graph.

BTW Eric, why is it that Garmin Connect takes almost a minute and a couple attempts to download the data, but RA does it in about 2 seconds, first time, every time?
Someone else had a similar problem and he fixed it by doing a hard reset (press and hold "Mode" and "Reset" buttons for several seconds). If possible, you should download all your data to Training Center first so you won't lose any data. Please let me know if that helped.
I am also having this problem. As of yesterday when I try to upload my data it freezes at 86% and the program freezes in IE. I tried a reboot on my Garmin 205 and it did nothing. My Garmin seems to be working fine, just can't upload the data now. Before yesterday it has worked like a charm everyday
Could you describe how you did the reboot? The Forerunner seem to get stuck at 86% a lot. I wonder why that is. At that point, the script that I wrote is waiting for the data to come back from the device. I suppose the script can check the progress less frequently. Maybe it's causing the problem but I doubt it...
I am holding the mode & lap (reset) button togethr for about 10 seconds and then trying to transfer data again. It shows it connect and when I hit the upload button it begins as normal butthen justs freezes at 86%. This has happened multiple times and with 2 seperate run entries although it stopped at 87% yesterday after my run and then froze
I'm wondering if it's because I'm checking the download progress too often and the plugin choked. I reduced the progress check frequency. Maybe this will fix your problem?
