Mac and Forerunner 405: Update software and GPS wirelessly

Fr405greencropScreenShot043More great news for Mac users! Now you're able to update your Forerunner 405 software and GPS chipset using your Mac and wireless USB ANT stick.  Through ANT Agent for Mac and our communicator plugin, you can also now send workouts and courses to the Forerunner 405 from Training Center. So in a nutshell, Mac users training with a Forerunner 405 now have most of the same functions available as those using a PC.

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.
