gh505 Linux support
« on: March 07, 2011, 04:41:35 pm »

I manage to use my gh505 from linux, using SportTrack see here:
http://www.zonefivesoftware.com/sporttracks/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9088
The only addon for gh505 was that it didn't show up as a ttyUSBn but as a ttyACMn  I faked this by creating a link like this

Quote
$> sudo ln -s /dev/ttyACM0 /dev/ttyUSB1

Now I tricked the SportTrack plugin to work!
Might work for OSX also, don't know.

Trying to get the 505 to work in virtualbox but windows wont descover it. Could this above have something to do with it?

Im guessing here as I have not tried Virtualbox with windows but I think you need to use Virtualbox from Oracle instead of the package from Ubuntu. Last when I played with it the package from Ubuntu didn't support forwarding USB devices to the virtual machine (due to license restrictions from Oracle).

Don't know if you need/can specify /dev/ttyACM0 to be forwarded to the virtual machine.

Hi Zingo. Thank you for quick reply. I am using the closed oracleversion so i do have usb-support. Guess it can't hurt to try the $> sudo ln -s /dev/ttyACM0 /dev/ttyUSB1...can it?

No it should be farly safe if there is no "/dev/ttyUSB1" present, you can remove it with
Code: [Select]
$> sudo rm /dev/ttyUSB1

[ 1102.390063] usb 3-3: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 2
[ 1102.619258] cdc_acm 3-3:1.0: This device cannot do calls on its own. It is not a modem.
[ 1102.619346] cdc_acm 3-3:1.0: ttyACM0: USB ACM device

Should i then write sudo ln -s /dev/ttyACM0 /dev/ttyUSB1...or 2 or 3?
And do i need to do it everytime i restart computer?

Thanks in advance

It will stick, so you don't need to re-run it. It will also scan about 30 devices so you can use /dev/ttyUSB12 if you like, makes it less likely co collide with something existing on /dev/ttyUSB1

hey hackers,

still using GS GH505 with lots of fun but now computer changed to mac.

anybody ever managed to extract GH505 training data to trailrunner e.g. via loadmytracks under mac osx 10.6.x?

this freaks me out. gh615 seems supported but via bluetooth-interface??? at least that's what loadmytracks states. any other clue how at least access the usb storage?

thank you for every hint

sascha

Hi sacha. I have pushed and finally have succeeded into obtaining 625xt supported by Load My Track and Macmaze. Once done you can try to ask macmaze and LMT creator for 505 support and they might accept if they have the right documentation and if the communication protocol is not far from 6125xt (and I think it is not).  You can ask Geoffrey for proper communication protocol. 625xt support should be done in one to three weeks.

Regards,

Canadien

thank you canadien for your reply,
unfortunately 505 is withdrawn and i'm pretty unexperienced with interfaces :-\
but anyway i'll ask geoffrey for "communication protocol" or other documentation to forward to LMT hoping developers might help. actually i believe 615/625 is quite different from 505 but timex global trainer is almost the same.

regards, s

You are welcome,

You can ask LMT but I rather think Jeremy from macmaze will be more likely to do that than LMT.

He is rewriting his application and will sale low price on mac app store.

With this software, you can extract gpx and see you trace on a map.

Basic and simple. Once done he will ask Bernie to incorporate that to trailrunnerx, just like LMT.

But even if he does not you will be able to use macmaze along plenty of software while importing gpx.


I'll let you know when the best time to ask. Tell me when you have communication protocol.

BTW you can try Zingo's trick here
http://www.usglobalsat.com/forum/index.php?topic=3511.msg8972#msg8972

or search for osx on sporttracks forum. I did not suceed into installing sporttracks on osX but I read that some people has been able to do so.

or you can you do like me and use a software such as parallel desktop to install window on your mac.

good news folks,
i just was sent a 25 pages  GH505-COMMUNICATION_SPECS_20100429.pdf by geoffrey!

@canadian wait for your call when time is right for further steps.

would have been so easy if each device behaved as a removable device...what a pity.
