Upload via iPhone and Wahoo dongle (Read 727 times)

    I'd love to be able to upload workouts from my Garmin (405, currently) to Running Ahead via my iPhone, and it looks like there is hardware to facilitate this:

    Apologies if this has come up before.  Has anyone looked into it further?

      I have not, but I can't let the phrase "Wahoo dongle" pass me by.

        I'm not generally a squeamish person, but I did cringe a little when typing the title of that thread.

         

        But I'm very enthused about this, as I think I could ditch the PC and be completely satisfied with an iPhone and iPad if I have a way to upload my Garmin data through one of those.  So yes, dammit, I want a dongle, and I'm not too proud to say so.

          From the screen shots, it looks like the dongle comes with software that supports other websites.  If this is the case, then they just need to add support for RA and then you can use your dongle as much as you like.

           

          If I have to add support myself, then it will be toward the bottom of my todo list since I don't know how many people will use this functionality.

            Sorry.  I also can't suppress my inner 5 year old...

             

            Is it awkward to ask someone you (presumably) don't know on an internet message board to support your wahoo dongle?  Didn't Craigslist already get in trouble for that kind of stuff?

               Dang. Beat me to it.
