I wish it worked, as that's how I used to do stuff with the old Edge 705
and TCX format.

Unfortunately, even though the GPSBabel site tells me that version 1.4.2
supports FIT files with garmin_fit (for tracks at least), I get a "Input
type not recognised" error when I try and convert a FIT file.

I might have to download a converted file from ridewithgps after I
upload it there.
