very very very few...everything is in the package, indeed..:-)

g-a-d has only been tested with GPS-enabled devices so it's really
hard to tell what we can do with your device.

I still have (for months!) to review Tollef Fog Heen's rewrite of such
tools that (according to him) allows browsing the data stored on the
device, through ANT+ communication. Unfortunately, i never found time
for this to happen.

I personnaly don't make PyTrainer communicate directly with the
device (ForeRunner 410 in my case). I download data with g-a-d, then
load it into PyTrainer (I don't need GPSBabel).
