Make sure you're using the latest released version of ANT+minus.

Make sure that the cp210x kernel module is loaded: "sudo modprobe cp210x". Verify by
looking at non-empty output of "lsmod | grep cp210x".

Make sure that the USB2ANT stick is connected to the machine.

Make sure cp210x driver was assigned to your USB2ANT. Verify by "dmesg | grep tty" and
look for a line similar to: "[ 3274.854726] usb 6-2: cp210x converter now attached to
ttyUSB0". Also make sure "ls /dev/ttyUSB*" lists your device node.

Your user must be able to access the /dev/ttyUSB0 device. This can be achieved e.g. by the
installing the http://antpm.googlecode.com/git/scripts/80-ant-stick.rules udev rule into
/etc/udev/rules.d. Restart udev. Verify by "cat /dev/ttyUSB0".

Install the antpm binary package.

Enable "pairing mode" on your watch.

Bring your watch to ~50cm from the USB2ANT stick. Sometimes avoiding the proximity of a
WiFi network helps.

Run antpm-downloader on your machine. This will attempt connecting to the watch and pair
with it first.

During pairing, you have to click "Yes" on the watch to complete pairing.

Afterwards all activity information from the watch is downloaded to your machine. This can
take some time.

The downloaded files are stored on your machine to the folder ConfigFolder/*device-
id*/*current-date-time* (where ConfigFolder equals $XDG_CONFIG_HOME which usually points
to $HOME/.config/antpm/ or $ANTPM_DIR/ if that is set).

The 310XT stores all information in .fit files. These files can describe

To convert the downloaded .fit files to a more commonly used .gpx format, issue the
command "antpm-fit2gpx -F ConfigFolder/*device-id*/*current-date-time*" e.g. "antpm-
fit2gpx -F ~/.config/antpm/4531082473/2013_03_26_10_58_19". This will populate the given
folder with .gpx files.


Please open a bug report at http://code.google.com/p/antpm

In your report please include:

The log of the program in question (usually saved under ~/.config/antpm)?

What steps will reproduce the problem?

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

What version of ANT+minus are you using? On what operating system? Is it pre-built
of from sources?

What GPS are you trying to use? What firmware version?


Make sure that the USB2ANT stick is connected to the machine.

Install the libusb driver by running "3rd_party/libusb-


Wireless ANT communications happens over a USB2ANT dongle. Under Linux the dongle is
driven by cp210x kernel module, and presented to user-space as a USB serial port,
/dev/ttyUSBxxx where xxx is an integer. The dongle is typically carrying the USB vendor
id/product id pair of 0fcf/1004 or 0fcf/1008. Recent Linux systems employ udev to handle
device nodes and permissions, thus appropriate
