This plugin is used to communicate Edge and Forerunners to http://www.motionbased.com or any of the other fitness/trainer websites. Users previously had to use the motionbased agent - a small little program installed on your PC. This agent will download the tracks from your units and then sync it with the websites you are using.

With this plugin, you just have to click upload on the website and it will automatically detect the attached Garmin device. A lot simpler to use.
Malsingmaps is now an official partner of Garmin to produce maps for MY, SG & Brunei.

o.k. I have loaded the communicator plug-in into the webserver and you can access it from

http://www.latlong.info/

For for version (Communicator Plug-in), it is designed to view POI, Track and route from your GPSr. It also can load custom POIs directly into your GPSr via the internet browser.

The next version (Communicator APIs) will be geared towards reading and uploading waypoints, tracks and route to the webserver and I think this is what we are looking for.

To test the application, connect your GPSr to your computer via USD or serial and then go to http://www.latlong.info (Also, can someone test it using SD card?)

Many thanks,

Kelvin.
