The installer hangs on my iMac with OS X 10.7.1.
Logged out then back in with no change.
There appears to be something screwy with the installer.

I apologize to other users and to Garmin. My problem with the installer went away after I restarted my computer.
Very sorry to jump the gun and complain when it was my error, or my computers...

I use this software with my Garmin FR60 that does not have GPS. The software shows the map anyway and there is no chance of getting rid of it.

All in all the app does what it says. BUT: It looks awful. It seems th be a cheap port of a windows app and that is felt in all areas. Even the naming is sometimes crappy (Services in german is "Serviceeinrichtungen" instead of "Dienste"). There is no preferences whatsoever and so all I get is something I can easily create with excel. I have no clue what the tens of megabyte are for.

Interestingly the screenshot provided here looks completely differnet to my installation... No greyish window at all. Fucking ugly icons... Where do I get the shown version? Is that outdated?

OK, my fault: You can switch off the map.

100 megabytes for a scree refresh problem?

Good grief - I have high speed now, but 100 mb's for a minor fix? Gimme a break!

TODDI is right, Garmin should license TrailRunner…

I used it for a few months on the Mac after using the PC version and it was about the same... pretty bare-bones.

A friend then let me know about Ascent by Montebello software which is *fantastic* and IMO worth the $35 over this free software. I've been using it for about a year and have been nothing but pleased.

Works well with my Forerunner 301.

Downloads 'tracks' showing my path and heart rate data for the workout. Very good information.

It's a good start, but could use some more features. Such as the ability to 'zoom in' on a portion of the workout for more detail. For example, highlight a high point on the heart rate chart and show the corresponding point on the map.

Also, integrating better map data would be a huge improvement. Current map data is very sparse. Google maps or USGS maps would be great.

An excellent alternative is "Trailrunner". It has a better interface, and better maps. Garmin should license Trailrunner.

We were promised this software a year ago and now that it's here it doesn't work. I can't upload from my 301. VERY disappointing. They should just give us all Motionbased for free instead of false promises and faulty software.

Garmins download server sucks. After half a day I'm only 13.8 MB into the ~56 MB download and it's stalled!

Curious that the description says, in the "Compatible Garmin devices:" section, "ForeRunner 201 (PC only)..." There are 3rd party OS X utilities(LoadMyTracks, Link2GPS) which work just fine with my ForeRunner 201 and a no-name serial-to-USB adapter cable.
