Garmin Communicator Plugin for Mac
Garmin Communicator Plugin is a very easy to install web browser plug-in designed to facilitate the data transfer between your Mac and various Garmin GPS devices. This way, you can easily upload new maps, copy training data, and much more.
Quick to install Garmin plug-in that integrates with popular web browsers
Since Garmin Communicator Plugin comes with its own installer, all you have to do is download the archive, mount the DMG image, and double click on the contained package. Follow the on-screen instructions and the installer will take care of the rest.
Noteworthy is that Garmin Communicator Plugin will be integrated within your web browser, so for the process to be successful, you need to quit all opened browser apps. The plug-in is designed to work with 4 popular web browsers: Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer.
Transfer data from various websites to your Garmin device
Once the installation process is over, any website that offers support for the Garmin Communicator Plugin API will automatically recognize your device. As a result, you have the opportunity to quickly send information to any device connected to your Mac.
However, in some cases additional USB drivers are required: if the plug-in test page states that the installation process was successful but is not detecting your device, you should try installing the latest Garmin USB drivers.
