While it took a few tries to set everything up on my S5, once it gets going it works perfectly. Cheaper than buying additional ANT+ sticks if you (like me) are not always near the same computer every day. I also like that it allows you to email out the FIT files. The Garmin site seems to error a lot when exporting the files so it is nice being able to just email them to myself for import into various programs.
This app works well, where Garmin Connect didn't it is amazing snd if you have any questions Carlo as been a wonderful resource. I can't say enough about how much better this works with no issues. Thank You Carlo for writing this app.
Easily retrieves activities from my Garmin Forerunner 305 and allows me to send to Strava with a total of two screen taps. Was able to fully eliminate Garmin Connect. I have always loved small applications that provide simple functionality - do one thing and do it well! Using Nexus 5 running Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This device requires the On The Go (OTG) USB cable to connect to my Garmin, which is a hardware requirement and not a requirement (or the fault) of Uploader. About the only functionality change I would ask for is to move my configured or perferred export target to the top of the Export screen. Small change, but a 'would be nice'.
Got stuck at the third activity when used with Forerunner 910XT, I stopped WiFi now and it works. Good UX is when you do not have to read lengthy tutorials. Nevertheless this is one of the very few Apps which do this job, thank you!
Garmins are temperamental beasties, but this app does a great job of getting those valuable .fit files off your gadget and online.
Read the tutorial, got myself an OTG powered hub which wasn't too expensive and now life is much easier to upload files to Garmin Connect straight after an activity without having to fire up my laptop. Uploading activities from my forerunner15 to my Android device works well and is very fast too. Thanks so much to the developer for creating this app, well done!
