Apparently GCP, that's I've been using happily for years with Batch Entry, uses some old "NPAPI" interface, that Chrome has been phasing out over the past year.

Aside from using Internet Explorer in the meantime, are there any other easy ways for me to get my Garmin (620) to upload to Attackpoint?

Your 620 (also 110, 210, 220, 920) shows up as a USB drive when plugged in. You can browse to the FIT files directly and upload them.

And yes, the Garmin plugin is going to die for good sometime later this year. There is supposed to be a Chrome override setting you can use until September. The Google Earth plugin is another popular one that will be affected.

Multi-selection of .fit files in the Garmin 'drive' is similarly easy to meet my lazy-logging needs - thx. Ken!

It quit working for me today. No USB option for the 310xt that I know of.

I followed the instructions that I found here:

https://support.assessment.pearson.com/display/TN/...

And it started working again. Until September.

Warning: Be very careful when editing your Windows registry.

You can also browse to 405/310/610/910 data files directly in the sync location on your PC. use Data Import > upload files (you can select multiple files at once)

data location for Ant Agent: https://support.garmin.com/support/searchSupport/c...
(FIT files are under Activites folder, TCX under History)

or Garmin Express: http://support.garmin.com/support/searchSupport/ca...
(Express users have to do this already because the plugin doesn't find sync data)

Many of you are running into this recently after auto-updating to Chrome 42. See your options above.
