Garmin Edge 705 Data Recovery with DD & XML

After recently taking part in a race across Scotland, using a Garmin GPS device (Edge 705) I had around 12 hours of GPS data which unfortunately seemed to get corrupted during the ride.

The device was properly displaying the data on the unit, but Windows, OSX and Linux were all failing to read the data, prompting to format the device which would remove all the data.

After contacting Garmin support they said the device was no longer readable, had to be formatted and loaded with the firmware again even though the data was still intact on the device.
