Fr405greencropScreenShot043We recently released software that will allow Mac users to upload their fitness activities recorded with the Forerunner 405 or 50 to Garmin Connect via the wireless USB ANT Stick. The software is called ANT Agent for Mac users. You can also send goals to your device when uploading your history/activities.

Soon you’ll be able to update your device software and GPS chipset to keep your device up to date. With future releases you’ll be able to send workouts and courses to the Forerunner 405 from Training Center and Garmin Connect, and independently send goals to the Forerunner 405 from Garmin Connect.  Future releases will also enable you to update your Forerunner 405’s device software and GPS chipset.

Ant-icon If you’re running a PowerPC Mac, you can expect successful pairing and transfers. Just remember to power down before removing the ANT Stick. We’re currently working on additional support for PowerPC Mac systems. In order to be able to install and use the ANT Agent on your Mac, you need to have an Intel-based Mac with OS 10.4.11 or later.  You’ll need to have 256 MB RAM and 150 MB of free disk space.  Since the ANT Stick is the USB cable for the wireless devices, you’ll need a USB port as well.
