Attention Mac & Garmin Users (Read 561 times)

Go Pre!

    Any Mac users out there had luck with Motion Based and uploading their workouts to the website? I have a PC desktop and MacBook Pro laptop and much prefer the Mac for the fact it is nice to use it while watching TV etc and not having to go down a flight to the home office. But, although I can transfer workouts to the Mac and the lame Garmin Training Center software, I have not had luck with Motion Based. I can use the PC for this but would rather not. thanks D

      I found Motionbased somewhat wonky myself. I use a standalone program called Ascent. http://www.montebellosoftware.com/ It stands up to SportTracks pretty well, IMO. It doesn't upload to the Forerunner, so you will need to keep GTC around for that. I really do like it and the developer does a great job interacting with users via the forum. They have a free trial, take a look and see if it's something you'd be interested in. hup

        There is a Mac client, if that's what you're wondering...I forget what it's called, but I found a link to the download on the MB forums. So far works pretty well.

        She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.
