Hello, I’m brand new to using CS and have been trying to get everything set up with my past activities. I have a new Garmin device that I’m (mostly) happy with regarding tracks (example https://citystrides.com/activities/23942980). I have a number of old activities in MapMyRun as well. I would like to get these imported into Garmin anyway, and that seems like a much better syncing option for CS than MapMyRun, so that would seemingly be a win-win.
There does not seem to be a tool to go directly from MapMyRun to Garmin so I’ve been manually downloading the tcx and importing that into Garmin. My initial tests went well, but when I starting looking back over the results all the activities from Oct 23, 2016 (inclusive) to Aug 11, 2019 (exclusive), plus just a few of the more recent ones, have really messy tracks, but only on CS.
See for example https://citystrides.com/activities/23559423. There’s some dramatic lines, but also a lot of back and forth along the route itself. The added mile markers are sort of comical. I’ve highlighted a street in the picture which shows that CS isn’t using the spurious lines to mark nodes.
Here is what it looks like in MapMyRun https://www.mapmyrun.com/workout/5387076730 and in Garmin https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/6769421411. Both look fine. I’ve also looked at the tcx file with RouteConverter OpenSource which I saw mentioned in another thread. It looked completely fine there too (although I’m not sure why only 1 out of 4 points seems to be filled in). I’ve only taken a very cursory look at the actual files in a text editor so far, but would be willing to make my own modifications if needed.
Does anyone know how I might be able to solve this problem? I’m willing to do any sort of manual work before re-importing into Garmin, but of course it would be preferable to avoid this. If I do need to take such action though is is possible to delete my entire account on CS and start over once that’s done (as deleting activities on CS is also time consuming)? Do any changes in Garmin to activities already pulled into CS also get synced into CS? Is there any way in Garmin to replace a cleaned up route without having to delete and recreate the activity?
One last unrelated question. I’ve seen that it is possible to mark a full street as manually complete. Is it possible to do the same with just individual nodes, such as to fix GPS issues on River Run on activity https://citystrides.com/activities/23844646 where not the full street is actually complete so far?
Thanks a lot!
