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 :-)

Hollyfox anyone?

I know a few people have asked occasionally for a firefox version of the Hollybar and I've been looking at this in a little more depth recently.

The good news is that on Windows at least it's definitely possible and, indeed, ultimately it could be a better - at least much more flexible - tool.

The bad news it that there's lots and lots of fiddly stuff to do first involving such delightful things as XUL, XPI and XPCOM.

So far I've got to the state where I can get Firefox to show the GPS software version number. Hoorah! That only took a week...

If enough people are interested I will push this through as it'll be an interesting experience if nothing else!

So I wonder if enough people are interested....

New test version - heart rate fix?

For anyone who wants to use fetch's latest heart rate uploading, I've put a version up for test on

This version will allow people to upload their max and avg session heart rates - I don't insert anything into the resting and actual max boxes - I leave these for manual entry.

Let me know if it works!

Update - apparently it does work :-)

Mapping updated!

Updated version here works with Fetch's latest changes on the add training run page AND allows you to upload map routes to Fetch's new map database.

Things work right now but they might change as Fetch keeps adding new things :-)

I also plan to add some Google mapping stuff soon - and maybe some Yahoo! mapping too - I really like the look of Yahoo's mapping stuff - especially in Flash.

305 version 2.60

The latest firmware release from Garmin seems to have broken something.

Thanks to Andrew65 for letting me know about this.

I don't know what the changes are exactly, but using some debug output it seems Garmin may have added a new protocol - D1014.

Looking at this, I think it is a new Run Type, possibly something to do with the new Auto Lap functionality? Sadly it's not documented anywhere yet - so I've had to guess the new D1014_Run_Type structure - this invention is currently under test with Andrew65.

Sorry about the disruption - I'll look at it and see if there's any way to avoid it in the future.... I'll also see if I can make some of those changes I've been promising!
