garmin_save_runs - retrieve track logs from a Forerunner device.
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
utilities. It is substantially more efficient than the bloated XML format that
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.
