Sportablet 3.7 and the Uploader for Garmin 2.9 provide beta-level support for the 310/610/910/etc family. A passcode is no longer needed, and it's now safe to purchase the app if you feel so.
If you tried the alpha, and as I suggested, did not buy the app, the safest thing to do is to unistall the previous version and install the new one. If you have bought the alpha, just let Android upgrade to the new version. It's a safe procedure anyway. If you uninstall / reinstall the app, make sure to bring back any change you made under "options".
Note: uninstalling the app is only suggested if you used it with one of the ANT+ devices above. There is no need to reinstall anything if you used a previous version with a different Garmin device.
If the alpha app didn't work for you, usually because you have too many activities on your watch, the new version will bring them in incrementally. The first upload may still fail, but some activities will be read: click on "done" and you'll see them. Click "get new" again, and a new batch will be read, and so on until you have them all. At that point, only new activities will be read.
A few of you guys had so many activities that even reading the directory caused a timeout :-). In that case, and more generally if you experience a lot of failures while downloading (mostly on smartphones), there is also a new option that you can try:
- (choose options, of course)
- scroll down under ANT+, choose File Transfer Chunk
- try "default", if it fails try "small". Transfer will be slower but the phone may handle that traffic better.
More details in the next post.
By the way guys: if you like the app, leave a positive comment on google play. Too many harsh people out there, who won't even get in touch when they can't make it work, and just leave 1 star :-).
