>Technical Support>Data import failure on manually entered Garmin activities
This never used to happen, but for the past week I get a message saying that instead of having the activity import. Why is that happening?

because i never shut up ... i blog
an amazing likeness
Most often, it's a result of some data element in the file being outside of the importer's spec -- ie, the importer is getting some data it doesn't expect.
For clarification, you are creating a manual entry in Garmin Connect (via the "+" on the Activities widget, or similar); the workout then appears in your RunningAhead in-box, but fails when you save it here?
mta: I was able to re-create the problem. I see what you're seeing.
I've done my best to live the right way. I get up every morning and go to work each day.
Yep... I get that message immediately after I add the activity on Garmin Connect, and then I get another one about ten hours later.
Thanks to milktruck, I was able to reproduce and fix the problem. Apparently, files created by Garmin Connect are missing the timestamp field that RA was expected. I've switched to use a different time if the timestamp doesn't exist. Please let me know if this is still a problem.
I signed up for the paid acct and have been meaning to find how to import the Garmin activities. I remember seeing the guide someplace but can't find it now on the website...
Help please? :-) Thanks in advance.

Someone just pointed me to the tools. Got it. Sorry nevermind.
Hi all, Eric:
I'm getting the same data failure error when importing a tcx file. In my case, my tcx file is exported from Suunto Movescount (as usual, it worked until two or three days ago).
You can download the file here.
I received these error messages as well yesterday. So it's still happening with manually entered Garmin activity.
Nope... still getting the same message.
