>Suggestions and Feature Requests>Importing runs from Garmin to actually the use the course name and not just repeat from previous RA runs
Anyone have pizza?
For years I've been modifying each time I've imported in from Garmin. Everytime I import, RA is using the previous run's course name, rather than taking the info from the Name field on the run in Garmin. Is there any any any possible way to get this improved?

an amazing likeness
Everytime I import, RA is using the previous run's course name...
This is controlled by a preference setting. From your RA Log - Tools -> Applications -> Connect Power by Garmin --> pull down the Preferences selector.
Uncheck: Fill new workouts with info from the last saved workout
Now when you import your workout from Garmin Connect you will select the Course and Equipment fields to complete the entry in RA.
...rather than taking the info from the Name field on the run in Garmin.
The importer does not use the activity name from Garmin Connect because there is no means of insuring the course exists under same name in both sites.
Acceptable at a dance, invaluable in a shipwreck.
