|HOW TO USE THE GARMIN GPS UPLOADER
|Compatible File Types
|| The Garmin FIT File Uploader accepts GPS files in the Garmin FIT format only, as used by the Garmin Forerunner 110 and other similar models.
|Finding the FIT File on your GPS device
||To begin, connect your GPS device to your computer and click Browse (or transfer the data wirelessly to your computer if using an ANT stick). Then locate the FIT files as follows:
USB CONNECTION : Your device shoulkd be shown as an external drive on your computer. Browse the files on your device and locate the correct one. FIT files are located under the Garmin/Activities folder on your device
ANT STICK: FIT files are located in the following folders:
PC - C:\Users\[your username]\AppData\Roaming\Garmin\Devices\[your deviceID]\Activities
Mac - /Users/[your_username]/Library/Application Support/Garmin/Devices/[your_deviceID]/Activities
Select the correct file (files are named using the date and time of the recording) and then click the Read File button to load the file for further processing.
|Choose the Laps/Splits to Upload
||If your FIT File contains recorded activity data such as laps/splits, any laps/splits recorded for each session will be shown in the right-hand panel. If no laps/splits are available or you don't want to use the ones from your GPS device, you can use the Auto-Generate feature to automatically generate laps/splits at specified intervals.
NOTE: This feature uses the Elapsed Time of each point from the start so if you stopped recording at any time during your exercise session, you can use the Exclude Stops feature to ignore any stops when calculating your Lap/Split times.
|Confirm your Selection
||Click the Upload to Good Run Guide button to confirm the exercise session you want to upload, including your choice of Laps/Splits.
|Choose to upload Route, Activity or both
||You can choose to upload just the route (to My Routes), just the activity (to your Log Book) or both - tick the relevant boxes. If you have previously uploaded the route and simply want to log another activity for the same route, there is no need to upload the route again - you can select it when logging the activity.
|Record any additional information
||Record any additional information, including a name for the route if you are uploading it.
||Click the Save button to upload everything to your Good Run Guide Training Log.
