'Twas all my fault… In case others are having the problem I thought I had, you might find my solution of benefit. The reason the Plugin did not work is that I had "ClickToPlugin v2.6" installed and had not modified the setting/preference to allow the Communicator to load. Indeed, the problem was not the software or Garmin's tech support, but rather, Operator Error. And of course, my most sincere apologies to Garmin.

When I installed the 4.0.1 Plugin, It concluded with an alert that the Plugin was installed successfully. But when I went to the Garmin.comDashboard page, I always got “Plugin Not Installed Exception”. Many emails later and 2 hours of live/phone Garmin Tech Support did not resolve the issue and ended with the recommendation that I wait for the next version. I like the GPS, but the SW & Tech Support are, IMNHO, unacceptable. I cannot but conclude, that the Garmin SW Development Team and their tech support is Mac Challenged in the extreme.

Upon installation and restart of Firefox 9.0.1 (NoScript, Flashblock) Mac OS 10.7.2 (lion) (w/Little Snitch running), Firefox displayed this: "This page asks to use a plugin that can only be run in 32-bit mode" It doesn't appear that the latest plugin is compatible with my configuration (or, I've so severely constrained its ability to operate that is does not).

Version 3.0.1 is 32 bit only. Requires that Firefox by running in 32 bit mode in order for it to work.

I subscribe to the (free) RunningAhead web site. One of its features is the ability to upload Garmin data from my Forerunner 205. In order to do so, the Communicator Plug-in has to be installed on my computer. Works like a charm!

I've never downloaded this thing, yet I communicate with a number of websites using my Forerunner 305. Can't really see the point, therefore. Any comments would be appreciated.

Excellent! I don't know if it was the new Safari 4.0.4 or the new build of Communicator - but this is the first time that this plugin has ever worked for me in Safari. :)

I also find that the Garmin web test page fails to detect the plugin in Safari 4.02 but succeeds in Firefox 3.5.x. Regardless, the plugin works in Safari, at least with bikeroutetoaster.com . Conclusion: Garmin's web test page lies!

Once again Safari 4.03 does not load the plug in (2.8.2) and Garmin's test page cannot detect it. Firefox 3.5.3 however loads it fine and the plug-in is detected. Following the tip from Mikencolo: I put Flip4Mac's plugins into a temp folder (Flip4Mac WMV Plugin.plugin and Flip4Mac WMV Plugin.webplugin) Restarted Safari and success, the plug in is detected. Now who'll fix the problem: Telestream or Garmin? ;)

I have a Mac w/ Safari 4.0.3 I could get the Garmin Communicator plug-in to load and Safari recognizes it fine. Garmin's website says it can't find it. I tried the tip of removing the Flip4Mac webpage plug-in, put that didn't work. Finally ran uninstall for Flip4Mac and completely removed it. Reran Garmin Communicator Plug-in install, and now everything works. I'll just have to remember this next time there is a map update available - yeah right...LOL Hope this helps someone else.

Safari 4 came out of Public Beta and was released in production as of today (June 8, 2009). Assuring compatibility with the Plugin would be greatly appreciated. Thank for the continued support of us Mac users!

Seems to not yet work with Safari 4 Public Beta. Test page says it's not installed. Firefox passes the Garmin test. So using Safari 4 with MapMyRide is still on hold.

I also had an unsuccessful installation. I tried the “Test Page” and nothing happened. I then tried going to“ https://my.garmin.com/geocaching/geoSearch.htm” and when I had logged in I got an HTTP STATUS 500 page with the description. “The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request.” I suspect it's a Java version error. I'm Java version 10 using which I think is the latest version.

Free. Easy to use. Integrates with Google maps, garmin.com and geocaching.com (and probably a lot more places that I don't use).

I have to support Garmin here, the plugin works flawlessly. Just remember to restart Safari once the plugin has installed. The website it works with is: https://my.garmin.com/geocaching/geoSearch.htm I don't know why the other reviewers had a problem with it.

Great to see improving Mac support from Garmin but the plugin just doesn't work. 'Browser not supported' Oh well hopefully we'll see a fix soon and some good reviews will get posted,

Visited "More Information" link and looked at Garmin's Web site. It says "Mac support coming soon." HUH?!? Went ahead, downloaded plug-in and installed. Fired up Safari and went to the test page. Said the plug-in was not installed or the browser is not compatible. Switched over to Firefox. Same results. So I can't do anything with this. Yippee.
