Elevation data in .fit file


(David Burgess) #1

No Doubt you are already aware of this but downloading Watopia’s .fit file and uploading to Garmin Connect the elevation data is not carried across. Garmin thinks I’ve been riding a flat course.

The elevation data is in there but it’s screwed up. If I use fitfiletools to, say, change the device type and then i upload to Garmin Connect, the elevations are ok. it’s as if the file is corrupt and the fitfiletool must be correcting it.

Fit file tools worked great, thanks! Changed to Edge 500, elevation and calories reappeared.


(Marc Steingrand) #4

so what part of fit file tools you are using?

Just changed to Edge 500 and got calories, but still 0 elevation. Garmin Connect seems to need to identify a device with a barometer on board, so I tried an Edge 810 and a 920xt, but Garmin connect still thinks it is an unknown device. Did you change anything other than the device name?

http://fitfilerepairtool.info/ Just exchanged emails with Mathias, the author of the tool. He will be updating it to solve this issue. Nice.
