Garmin Upload Question (Read 295 times)

Mike2921


    Hello,

     

    I have 2 years of data from my garmin 305 on my local hard drive in the *.tcx format.

    I have not been uploading it to Garmin Connect due "communicator plugin" issue.

    Is it possible to upload the *.tcx file directly to Running Ahead, or will the data need to be on Garmin Connect first?

     

    Thanks...

      RunningAhead will directly import the TCX file. Training Log -> Upload GPS Data -> Upload from file.

        Thanks for your reply.

        When I try to upload using that method, I get the following error.

         

        Unknown error

        An unknown error has occurred. The site administrator has been notified.
        OK

          It's a commonly used function of the site, surprised to hear you're getting an error. I just uploaded a TCX file as a test with no issues. Are you ZIP'ing the file first?

            MIke2921,

            I have not received the error report from the server pertaining to your upload.  Could you send me the file to support@runningahead.com so I can take a look?

              Thanks Eric...

               

              I will send it now.

              I have tried two different files.

              One of them was a zipped "history.tcx file", and the other was a zipped "tcdatabasebackup.tcx" file.

               

              I will e-mail the history file to you.

              I didn't know which one was appropriate.

               

              Thanks,

              MWD

                I tried again tonight.
                It still didn't work.  Sad

                Any ideas?

                 

                Thanks,

                MWD

                  Mike - I was waiting for Eric to reply, because I don't have access to Garmin Training Center (GTC). But those files you've listed are the master GTC data files -- and the RA importer expects you to have a TCX file for each workout. I don't believe it wants to consume those master files.

                    Hello,

                     

                    I would like to thank Eric for helping me get my Garmin data uploaded.

                    Also, I really love the site, especially the customizable reports.

                    Running Ahead is Awesome.

                    Running Ahead can accept Garmin Workout files.
                    The data that Eric helped me upload included more than two years of workouts.

                     

                    Best regards,

                    MWD
