Suppot import of Garmin .fit files

Charles Halliday shared this idea 6 years ago
Completed

I am using Locus Pro on an Android tablet while touring with a Garmin Edge 800 GPS Unit.


This lets me plan routes offline on a bigger map and to download to the Edge 800 for the ride.


Importing tracks/activities from the Edge 800 to the tablet would be very nice.

Good day Michal,


you are currently first who ever asked me, so for now, there is no plan.

Have you reconsidered? I think that four people have the same quesiton now :)

Good day Simon,

unfortunately there are currently more important tasks. Thank you for understanding.


EDIT: I've changed this question to "idea" so feel free to vote if interested.

I would welcome very much this function as well, since I am storing all my activities in this space-saving format. It would be great to be able to import these activities ;)


edit: I'm talking about garmin .fit files, don't know if it's the same

+1 from me too. And I would also appreciate, if it would be able to import (and also export) all the graphs from fit file (heart rate, cadence, temperature, dew point, whatever).

+1 to be able to import at least the route from Garmin FIT file, and importing other data also would be nice

Garmin FIT files and Google FIT merged together? WTF?


this is google fit https://fit.google.com/ an online service much like endomondo or strava


this is garmin fit format http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/FIT

And here you see nice example of quick action without precise reading ... damn. It's nice that this help desk system has no "undo" or split functionality. And now we are ... :)

Good day guys,

I'm sorry for a mess in topics (it is not possible to simply revert it).


These from you who wants to add support for Google FIT, please remove your vote here and vote for a new created topic here: http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/google-fit-support_1 . Thank you and sorry for extra work.

+1 for Garmin FIT import support. I'm currently using Garmin Fenix 3 for track recording and therefore lost the ability to use Locus to process the tracks offline. That was possible with previous Garmin Tactix, which saved tracks in GPX format.


I loved the Locus workflow with the previous Garmin model and it would still work if FIT import support were added.

The new hammerhead karoo bike computer also gives you only fit files. The karoo is a great device for locus since its based on android and a support for fit files would add to the cross compatibility with the native karoo apps.

Wahoo Elemnt Bolt exports track in FIT file too

+1 for Garmin FIT, including Waypoints

How does it look with .fit file support? Is any plan?

Bryton, too saves as .fit and it would be nice to transfer recorded tracks in locus.

Hi guys,

I've just published new Beta version 3.36.2.1 that have added export & import of FIT files!

It will definitely need some testing & functionality confirmation, so feel free to report any troubles (& sample data for test).

I tried to import attached files. Only A was successful.


But in addition - Locus can show altitude and cadence graph in contrary to Garmin which can show altitude and temperature (only in second half of route). And cadence and temperature graphs are not the same (which could be if the temperature would be marked as cadence). Where is that cadence from?

Hi Honzo,

B & C fixed, thanks!

As I see in GPXSee application, A track really contains cadence, same as Locus Map display and also temperature as you wrote (that Locus Map does not display on any chart etc > missing feature). I'm also rather checking the source and really, the candece value is in A.fit file as well!

It is great to see that you are implementing this! Thanks a ton. Tested with Edge 520 and Bryton 310 recorded fit file. Seems to work well for Edge. With Bryton I find that speed (sensor) and heart rate are missing. I might be able to provide a sample file for Bryton if required.

Hello Tirfo

so track recorded by Locus and exported to FIT format, does not display speed and heart rate in Bryton device. And you have a fit file that works correctly, am I understand it right? Then sample FIT file is welcome, so share it with me if possible and I'll gladly test it, thanks.

Hi Menion, the other way round: I tried to import in Locus a .fit file that was recorded on a Bryton Rider 310. Speed (sensor) and heart rate are missing. Using Mytourbook I found that at least HR is in the file.

Hi Menion, sorry for the delay. I finally managed to record a .fit file on the Bryton device. It contains heart rate information but heart rate is not shown after import in locus (3.36.2.11). I also found that the date is not preserved, which means that if I import many .fit files recorded on different days, they all have the date of import instead of the actual date of creation. Thanks!

Thanks Tirfo, this helped a lot. Will be fixed in next version.

Hi,

I wasnt so succefuly with file export Google FIT to Garmin Connect. I try export file FIT like activity or track and Garmin Connect dont acept it. If i make export like GPX isnt problem.


Best regards

^you can't export .fit file without timestamp to connect also not to strava, if you are manually creating route in locus map.

It would be helpful to have option to manually introduce track time from travel time estimate.

Hello Igor, Lukáš,

isn't there needed to export FIT files as "Course"? This option is available in the latest Locus Map. But it looks to be a little buggy and after export, the app does not remember previous selection and always force to export as "course". Sorry, will be fixed in the next version.

Hello Menion, for me the problem is wrong timeframe in exported fit. Please check screenshot from basecamp. What I am proposing is introducing travel time into manually created/not recorded tracks. Hope that makes sense.

Hi,

I did export real track and the problem is the same.
