I could not get this app to read .fit files from the SD card on my Garmin Edge Touring. It would only read files from the internal storage. I tried various suggestions from the web site but nothing worked. I will just have to go back to copying the files using File Explorer to my internal storage, and then uploading to a web site to convert from .fit to .gpx, which is all I hoped/expected this app to do. Thanks at least for having a trial version to test out! It does work fine for .fit files on the internal drive of the Garmin unit, just not for the ones on the SD card.
Works well for me. I got it to use with my old Garmin 310XT which no longer likes syncing using the Garmin Ant dongle. Using this app and the built in Ant on my phone (Samsung Galaxy S5) it was very easy to upload the data from my GPS. You do need to follow the instructions for your specific device. For my device, instructions were to turn off wifi on phone and enable searching for device. I also find if I manually delete the events off of my GPS that I don't want to upload, it increases the chance of success. Love the upload to Strava functionality.
It worked fine with my Montana 600! Saved me carrying a PC on a 3 week Europe bike tour and uploaded my GPS data every day without a PC! (That was with a Garmin Montana 600 and Samsung S4 phone. The best cable is a Lindy #31717 IMHO.) Oddly the most reliable connection was with the Montana battery removed and the phone powering the Garmin in Data mode. Sadly this ease of communication is no more now that I have a newer Samsung Note 4 phone running Android 6.0.1. Carlo explained to me that Android has restricted permissions to removable USB devices such as a Garmin .Now the only route now is to use a third-party file app such as Astro to shift the gpx files to a folder on the phone and then access that via Uploader. It works but is a lot "fiddlier"- hopefully he may find a work-around to restore the previous ease of use in future. Blame Google!
Still works great on Google Pixel 2 phone. Awesome app. Saves us from having to put bloatware Garmin software on our PC's. 🖕🖕🖕 Garmin Express. I use it with a Forerunner 305
After years of constant connection problems using Garmin software and an inability over the last six months to upload race data in less than 15 minutes I installed Uploader for Garmin, the Ant Radio Service and Ant USB Service and uploaded my race data directly into Strava. I can now upload directly after a race when away from my PC. Garmin should be ashamed! You do need an OTG USB lead.
I have the Garmin 500 and was looking for a cheap but yet quick way to upload my cycling wkout to Strava. This app fit the bill perfectly. Bought a cheap OTG cable, followed the instructions to the letter and now it works great. Highly recommend it for us on the cheap athletes.
fix for strava + "sign in with google"
