Garmin USB native support


I wanted to update people on the status of the Garmin USB closed alpha test. We're making good progress on building support for Garmin USB units. We had wanted to move into open beta by the end of the summer, but there are some issues that are coming up that we want to take care of before more public trials.

We know people are waiting with anticipation for Garmin USB support -- we should have it before soon, it's our top priority right now. So hang in there -- and THANK YOU to all of our active alpha testers for all of their hard work.
