This was a toolbar which allows athletes to upload their Garmin Forerunner data directly to the web - now the best way to do this is :-)

305 support :-)

forerunnerYes... I've finally borrowed a Forerunner 305 (thanks Paul!) and got the Hollybar working with it :-)

The new installer is at :

I've also:
- put in a small fix for the split times (splits over 59 minutes are now shown)
- put in a fix for the code that had the problem when Garmin Training Center was also talking to the 305.
- put in a small fix for the 301 (no-one ever noticed though!)
- put in a small fix for the error reporting if you try to upload a gmap and pedometer javascript has a problem.
- put in a small fix to the installer - it should now remove the previous software version on its own (but the user will need to make sure Internet Explorer is shutdown for this to work).

On new issues...

I've seen that there is an issue on gmap pedometer with IE7 - basically in order to get the map upload to work you currently have to:
- go to gmap-pedometer
- answer "no" to the Hollybar question first time (because the pedometer page hasn't fully loaded)
- hit the gmap-pedometer button on the toolbar
- answer "yes" to the Hollybar question second time.

I don't know why this is (or whether the problem now exists on IE6 too) - I'll look into it some more "soon"! Not this coming week though - I've gotta get some proper work in!

If anyone spots any problems with the 305 support (or with the 301 support) then please let me know and I'll fix it!)

Hollywood -- excellent piece of kit - well done works seamlessly

Any chance of a opera version?

Thanks cabletow :-)

I've not developed anything for Opera before... I've just had a look online to see what it takes to do this. I've not found out much so far - so I've asked a question on the Opera Dev forum - let's see what they come back with!

I'd also quite like to develop it for Firefox one day (since that's my browser of choice!)

And finally I've also noted your request for - I'll look into it when I next get free from some of the day job and BPTT work!

Thanks again :-)

Where do you get the time? I can bearly read what you've written in the time you've completed the development and updated the site. Well done Slodge.

Now i've seen what this does, i'm going to use it - if I ever run again...
