Garmin 310x Communicator (Read 1497 times)

    My 310XT is acting up too. RA detects the 405 but won't detect the 310XT. The Garmin test page doesn't detect it either, although I've unpaired/paired it and reset it. Any ideas?

     

    MTA:  OK after doing multiple resets and restarts it seems to be working again. Persistence pays.

     

    Can explain this procedure?

        Damn Garmin.  I don't know what's going on.  Does anyone have this problem?

         

         

        Yes - GPS not detected :-/

          Anyone get beyond this yet?  On a mac.... removed all garmin software (ANT, communicator, training center) and have reinstalled.  Not having anymore luck with it seeing my device.  Manually able to upload GPX files that I've exported from Garmin connect.

           

          Thx

            I've tried all the suggestions and its still not working. I am currently uploading the .fit file from the file uploader so as long as that is working, I'm not complaing.

             

            Can you upload the .fit file?

              That sucked and didn't help at all.

                It just worked for me - no clue why but it did.

                    Anyone else still having issues?  PC/Mac.... chrome/explorer/firefox .... still doesn't see it.

                      Still not working for me. I'm importing the .fit files now.

                        Thanks. Y'all just talked me out of the Garmin 310XT.

                          Unless you are doing triathlons/duathlons or really long workouts where you need the extra battery life, I don't see the need for a 310 or 910xt. I'm not sure WTF is going on with the upload, but import from file is working great. Its just a couple extra clicks and is really not a big deal to me.

                            The only trouble I've had with my 310xt  and RA interaction was the issue with duplicate imports - but that's fixed now.

                              I haven't had any problems with mine (yet) but then I have only had it for a few weeks.  

                              I'm using a Mac w/Safari.

                               

                              I do have to wait a while for it to up load to Garmin Connect.  Once that is done it loads fine to RA and Training Center.  

                              As far as I can tell it must up load to garmin connect before it will do any thing else.   Very annoying since  

                              I don't use Garmin Connect at all.

                               

                              For me, it is a great replacement for the 305.

                                I like the waterproof feature of the 310XT for running in the rain. My 205 came back to life but some downpours resulted in water and condensation inside.
