    Possible to DL Garmin Edge 500 files with an ipad?

    I frequently take bike trips and usually wait until I'm home to DL the files so that I don't have to haul around my bulky laptop. Is there a way to DL the files to an ipad so that they can then be uploaded to Garmin connect?

    Yes, I found several on the first page of a Google search.

    Can you share a link? Every thread I've found has said it's not possible

    Lots of people asking the question and trying things. Few real solutions.

    seems like jailbreaking the ipad is your best option.

    If you had a model that transferred data to the computer via ANT+, Wahoo makes a kit to handle data transfer and uploading to GC, but the Edge 500 does not do that. Seems the biggest limitation is that you have is that Apple doesn't want you to have access to the ipad's file system. Hence the need to jailbreak.
