LiNK For Windows & Mac OS X

LINK for WINDOWS


 

LiNK software is used for transferring, viewing and exporting data files from the SpeedCoach GPS2 with Training Pack and SpeedCoach GPS2 with Training Pack and Heart Rate . This version of LiNK for the Microsoft Windows platform truly represents our first step in the planned development of the LiNK environment.  We are asking you to download it, start using it, and most importantly, help us prioritize our ongoing development by telling us what features and capabilities you most want us to add.  Note: LiNK is currently compatible with Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1.  

What can you do with LiNK for Windows?

  • Wirelessly transfer just row and workout interval data to PC for viewing and storage.
  • Export data to charting and analysis programs, such as Excel, via CSV.
  • Export data to FIT file format to enable transfer to third-party websites, such as Endomondo, Strava and any FIT-compatible site. These sites enable you to view your row on detailed maps, share your results with friends or coaches, and even compare your results with others – giving new meaning to your Saturday Smackdown club rows. 

Use of the LiNK Software Requires a Firmware version 2.04 or higher.

  • Firmware version will be displayed on the splash screen upon start-up of your SpeedCoach.
  • If your SpeedCoach firmware is lower than 2.04, installing LiNK on your computer will trigger a firmware update to your SpeedCoach to version 2.04. 

  •  IMPORTANT:  This first firmware update will wipe all current workout data from your SpeedCoach unit. For future updates you will need to transfer your data prior to updating firmware. 
  • Note:  If you have purchased a SpeedCoach GPS Model 2 without Training Pack you can still upgrade - contact us.
