I was not thrilled with Garmin Connect ever since the first time I hooked up to it (with the help of Garmin tech support), it completely wiped out all the data on my unit.
I will not use Strava or anything else I need to create an account for. It’s why I like Ascent.
I read High Sierra definitely broke it but it is still working on my Sierra machine.
Is there anything else that works as a stand alone product?
RubiTrack and Garmin Training Center are the stand alones I use. Good luck finding GTC anywhere, and since it’s 32 bit and it’s been a long time since Garmin supported it, it’s days are numbered. RubiTrack is very nice but has to be bought. GoldenCheetah is free and open source, so it should always be available, but I’m not that fond of the interface. It’ll do everything you’re likely to want, though (and if you can code, you can make it do whatever you want). These days Garmin Connect is used via iOS Garmin Connect or Garmin Express on macOS, and newer devices send directly to Garmin Connect via Bluetooth->LTE or WiFi, so it’s all automatic now. No need to plug the device in, although I usually do anyway.
