ok. Am just about to try for a second go, but when I put the race date in (23/05/2010), the website comes up with "invalid date format".... I assume that this isn't going to help??

oh dear!

Hey, hey!! The Green One's work around works! I tried again and the invalid date format message disappeared so I went through the step by step guide again. Would you believe it, but the whole programme is now sat on my 405. Amazed. Thanks GO - top man.

Malakite - don't give up...!

I did the unthinkable and put Garmin Training Center on the pile of scrap that is my PC at work then transferred the schedule to my 305.

Just as well that worked because I got a London place last night in my club's ballot.

I tried one more time to raise some interest in Garmin making the Mac version of GTC support the .wkt file you get when you download a marathon schedule from RW.

The answer I got is that the latest release of GTC for Macs (version does support .wkt files.

See this thread (read right down to the bottom): Garmin forums 

The last post is from someone who's running Snow Leopard and who says it works.

I can't try on my Mac until next weekend so if anyone else cares to do so, it would be great to know whether or not it works for them.

Btw, this is where you get the latest versions of Garmin Training Center

Thanks Spartacles,

Just tried the new BETA version of GTC and it will import the .wkt files, thanks very much for the posts, much appreciated,

Nice one Neil, I'm really glad it worked.

Why don't you just partition your hard drive and install xp, vista, W 7 (whatever) on it, and run it in dual boot?

Because I don't want two OS's on my Mac.

I have decided to speed up the pace settings for my garmin mara training schedule (running on a Mac). The RW FAQ suggests you delete the old schedule in GTC and then update a new one incorporating the changes. Does anyone know how you delete the entire 16 week programme from GTC? I assume it's not entry by entry.....?

I have the Garmin 205 and have to say its the biggest load of crap out there? Some days you can turn the thing on and get a satellite connection withing 5mins. But thats only Some days and most of the time it could be anything for up to an hour being I get the satellite. Last night I wanted to  pace myself @ 7min miles for a distance of 10miles so after waiting for about 20mins to get the connection I said bugger it and just went out and ran...After running about 9 miles and about to come into my village guess, I got a connection.

Adrian, that is how you have to do it. Delete all the entries in the GTC calendar and import your new schedule then synch it to your watch.

Bonkers, but there you are. There's no batch delete that I can see anyway.

shouldn't complain I suppose. At least the thing is now Mac compatible.....

WOW just read this thread again, updating as we speak, fingers crossed it will work, and if so WOOHOOO!
06/01/2010 at 21:05
Let us know how you get on.

Hi Spartacles - well it appears to have imported the 'wkt' file which is great, then I hit to 'export' to the Garmin which it did - the question is how to check/start it up on the watch! Am I right in thinking that I simply go to 'Training', then 'workouts'? I named it in the Garming Training Centre, but thats not displaying on the watch itself although I don't suppose it would??

Think I'm almost there, just need a bit of help with the settings on the 405 I think now! Very excited it may just work soon though after over a year of waiting for Garmin to get themselves into gear!
