Works, but needs some work to make it more useful. Difficult to manage behavior, not many options.

Can anyone comment if the crashes still persist or if that is solved?

Ok, I tested it myself and so far I did not crash my machine. But it is a very very bad app. Windows pop up unexpectedly and give comments that are quite cryptic.

I managed to sync my FR60 at the end but it is no fun to say the least. Maybe this is not the typical app that should offer fun but I expect this to be a seamless experience what it is not.

The software also connects directly to some garmin website but that is completely useless as even the date of running was not correctly recognized. Two stars? Ok, three as it does what it says...

my mac keeps periodically crashing too (kernel panic) after i installed the mac ant agent. might be a garmin or an apple bug. whichever it is, it might be a good idea to wait a little until potential problems have been ironed out....

also, automatic uploading to garmin connect did not work. when i tried to upload manually via the 'Upload' button on the garmin connect website, the browser plugin offers as datasources mounted removable devices as a SDHC card from my camera and a data volume mounted from my NAS but not my forerunner 405...

it worked loading the data into GTC, which is most important. i don't want to spend more time on investigating what went wrong with the garmin connect uploads as long as the kernel panic issue persists though.

I was very excited to see the release of the ANT agent software for MAC! Now, I can uninstall parallels and Windows XP and take my Macbook Pro back to being a pure OS/X machine.

I downloaded the software, went through the installation and set up and in less than 5 minutes, I was finished uploading a months worth of workouts to Garmin Connect! Each and every step was documented on the Garmin website and it all went exactly as they described.

So far, I have no complaints and I look forward to seeing this run on my iMac so I can leave the Garmin Ant agent dongle attached all the time. I love the idea of walking into the house after a run or ride and as I set my 405 on the counter, it begins to download all on it's own and I don't have to start any other applications.

I hope everyone has the same easy install process that I did!
