USB? I've got a 310xt and the only way to get files in to PC (and thence on to other places) is via the Ant stick. And the driver choices for that are only the Garmin Communicator Plugin or the Garmin Express software, isn't it? I found that Garmin Communicator Plugin was failing with every browser I tried, couldn't import to Fetch or even to Garmin. Just wouldn't see the watch. This was after 1.5 years of it working fine! Some update either in Windows or the driver or GCP made it all stop working. Progress, eh? That's why I went to GE.

Anyway, I'll try it again tonight, maybe reinstall Express if I have to (doesn't take that long). Just wonder why it stopped working. Thanks. :-) G

Slow and Ultra Steady
I've found that everytime Garmin do 'Maintainance' to the site something fcuks up. I've been having to upload manually for ages and tranferring in a gpx file for about 3 years now.
I have a 310xt which is brilliant :)

Reinstalled Garmin Express, all hunky dory. That message is seriously misleading. I totally would have waited days thinking it was broked. Thanks for wisdom of Fetch putting me right! :-) G

I haven't run, so I wouldn't know! (Mon is rest day - just gym instead). :-) G
