    Yo!
    Quick question...
    Does anyone know if the new garmin edge is compatible with Macs? I have an older garmin 60c and the mapping and software is PC only. Was hoping their newer products are mac friendly...

    Thanks.

    I have an Edge 305 that is compaitble with my Mac. The supplied Training Center disc is PC, but the Mac version is downloadable from the Garmin website....for my 305 that is. The Mac version of TC seems like an afterthought; many functions are left out.

    I would imagine the case would be the same for the new models.

    Edit: After checking their site, it appears it is compatible with both the 705 and Mac.

    I have a 305 and always thought the TC software sucked anyways and do most of my logging through Motionbased.
