Follow the instructions and save some time....
Does it really just save time when you can just upload straight from your Garmin to Strava anyway?
Well yes, if you upload to Comnect AND strava (as I do) now you only have to upload to Connect and it automatically appears on Strava - saves uploading twice....
I thought it had stopped working due to some changes Strava made.
As of July 1st 2013 Strava discontinued support for their v2 version of the interface that GarminSync uses to upload activities to Strava. GarminSync already migrated to v3 but this requires that GarminSync users who signed up before May 3rd 2013 to redo the GarminSync signup. Read the FAQ "Why do I have to redo the setup for Strava?" for an explanation first.
So seeing as i signed today - alls fine.
I've a ride tomorrow so I shall report my findings as I upload...
Nice find, that'll save me a little time, as I don't do Strava Premium, so if I want to get all 'scientific' on my data I use Connect, but for segments then I pop them in Strava.
Worked fine, cheers.
I tried it again tonight waited an hour and my ride still hadn't appeared on Strava, I gave up and loaded it normaly.
I thought Garmin Connect looked useful, but the only function I really want is time spent in zones, which it doesn't do, back to oldskool GTC....
I posted this link yesterday in the chat thread...
Does work ok though!
I deleted my GarminSync connection from Strava and setup a new one, it's now working at last.
I used this for a while but found that Strava's ascent estimations were miles off.. sometimes by over 1000ft..
What i do now is upload to garmin connect and enable the elevation correction feature (bottom box on left hand side of ride information screen)
Then click export-> gpx and go to strava and upload this file ..
This gives a more representative reading.
