garmin forerunner + tablet?

hello guys,

is there a way to connect a garmin forerunner (I'm running with a good ol' 305) to a tablet like an ipad or android?


Right now I'm using garmin connect (back home) which is a bit clumsy and requires a pc + internet connection. When I'm training on track I lack both. I tried a notebook + 3G key or even using the garmin training center so I don't need to be connected, but it's still a major hassle (and embarassing ).


I tried using a smartphone instead of the forerunner but didn't like it, weights more, doesn't get heart rate, screen is too small when you want to look at the charts, etc.


It would be so slick to bring a tablet, connect the forerunner, and just touch everything .


Can you help me?
