NAME

       garmin_save_runs - retrieve track logs from a Forerunner device.

SYNOPSIS

       garmin_save_runs

       garmin_save_runs  retrieves track logs from a Garmin Forerunner device connected to an USB
       port, and saves the information into files.  Files are saved with the extension ".gmn" and
       are  named  by the run start time (e.g. '20070121T151814.gmn').  The .gmn file format is a
       binary file format that can be unpacked with he garmin_dump or garmin_gmap utilities.   It
       is substantially more efficient than the bloated XML format that Garmin uses.

       The  output  of  garmin_save_runs  will  tell you where on your filesystem the actual .gmn
       files were saved.  The default is to save them in a directory tree  (by  year  and  month)
       under  the  current  directory.  You can override this by setting the environment variable
       GARMIN_SAVE_RUNS to whatever directory you like. Existing files are not overwritten.
