Attach a Route (map) when entering a 'Manual Entry'

It is really frustrating when a device destroys your data!!! In my case an 18 hour ride and nothing to show for it.

What do we do .. only solution at the moment is to add a Manual Entry.

Currently there is no image of the route taken when adding a 'Manual Entry'.

If we could import a route (gpx or  select one of 'My Routes') it would greatly enhance the entry.

Note: no time data would be available from the file ... that is expected.

  • Do any Android users have a paid account?  Perhaps it is unlocked with membership?

  • Uninstalling Strava until it has this. The manual mapping mode also isn't up to par.

  • Strava users have been asking for this feature for years but they don't give a damn.  If they added it to the paid members features they might actually get more to subscribe but until they do I wont be paying anything.

  • This function would make strava just that much better. Endomondo can do it and I think about dropping strava frequently because of the lack of ability to attach a saved route to a manually added activity. Some adventure races are strict with not allowing smart watches and tracking devices, often we are racing remotely where phone battery is best saved for emergency only and turned off as required by race organisers. Would be nice to get home and be able to create the route we raced using the topo maps distributed for navigation and add the activity later.

  • So, They do it in Android 2 years ago then nothing. I'm a paid member and this sort of response is crap.

  • This is very frustrating! Why did you remove the Manual Entry - Add Route feature for Android??

    Unless I'm shooting for a new PR, I don't really need to record my commutes because it is almost always the same speed on the same route.

    Do Premium users lose this function? Why did I buy a full year. 

    Horse shit.

  • Is this feature updated on IOS or web yet?  Seems like an easy add that would help a lot of people with the app.  If not maybe i need to switch back to MapMyRide.

    Can we have an update from Strava please?

  • This feature has been requested for years but Strava have some strange reason for not adding it.  No body at Strava ever says why nor promises an update in the future.  You used to be able to do it in Android but I see that has now been removed as well so there is no way at all unless you have programming skills and a lot of time.   It cant be difficult to add it and if they did for paid members I would become one. Do you think Strava ever read these comments and requests?

  • Strava must not read the posts since issue remains unsolved for years.. now faced w same crisis .. map my ride is fool proof and strava is as innovative and supportive as cement boots

  • I swear at one point strava had a way to add routes to a manual entry. I had used it for when I forgot to resume my activity from pausing to run to the bathroom inside gas stations. I would then manual entry and use the route or at least I thought..... Somehow I had entered the same route as manual activity without problem! Now its problems.

  • Yeah, still unresolved since 2014 maybe, opened by various topics which all closed now.

    They can ignore us from their monopoly. Time will bring a competition I hope.

  • Downgrade to version 75.0 (Android) or earlier to get the feature back! So stupid of them to remove such essential thing, why on Earth would we use the route without it?

  • Endomondo can do this, so you can draw the route there, add workout and export the workout as gpx. However, if you do it often, then it would be easier to import the history into endomondo and use it going forward 😂

  • The capacity to add a route to a manual upload used to be available on Android -- I've done it several times in the past. But now it seems to have been removed? Is this actually the case, or has it just been hidden during a redesign of the interface?

  • Please add this feature! I'm happy to provide early feedback. Could be a good candidate for your next hackathon?

  • Hey Strava using friends. I had to re-figure out how to manually add/post a route today. I did a hike but pressed pause immediately and didnt realize it until the end. But I wanted it to be in my history! If you're interested the steps are:

    1: go to STRAVA on a desktop device and go to DASHBOARD>MY ROUTES
    (https://www.strava.com/athlete/routes)

    2: Create your route by adding dots along the map.
    3: Save it.
    4:Download it as a GPX file.

    5: Add speed and time stamps to the file by uploading it here: https://gotoes.org/strava/Add_Timestamps_To_GPX.php

    6: Download it again with the new data

    7: Upload it to your account here: https://www.strava.com/upload/select

    Hope this helps

  • Thank you Angie December 30, 2019 19:01 - this solution works very well. I, like thousands of others have gone out with a GPS device that has run out of juice during a run/ride and have lost part or all of an activity. I really can't understand why Strava have not implemented this feature since others have clearly been able to do it.

  • Angie Feret December 30, 2019 20:01 - I can also confirm that this works. It's long winded compared to what Strava should be offering as standard but it works at least !

  • Hi, Latest update was 3 years ago. Are we still awaiting the Strava Team, Elle?

    This simple feature really is a must have for recording activities later in the day when without device or GPS fails.

     

    Thanks

  • Makes zero sense to not have this feature. You have a manual mapping tool, and a manual entry tool. Any DEV could easily add a drop down to the manual entry form so you can pick your saved route, enter a date and a time for your outing and hit save. Super simple, this feature has been asked for since 2014, there are dozens of help center requests for it, seems like a major fail here...

  • Completely agree.

     

    There must be an ulterior reason why Strava won't allow this, and why they removed the function from their Android app. Given that this has been going on for at least 6 years now I doubt things are going to change any time soon... or is this available for paying members?

  • Very frustrating. People want to see the routes you do in the feed, not just the time and distance. Maybe this will get their attention: Hey Strava! MAPMYRUN HAS HAD THE "ADD ROUTE" FEATURE FOR YEARS!

    I also used the advice of Angie Feret to add timestamp to my manually created route here: Add speed and time stamps to the file by uploading it here: https://gotoes.org/strava/Add_Timestamps_To_GPX.php

  • A workaround is creating a trial account with www.endomondo.com as this allows you to manually draw routes. Do the bare minimum to create a endomondo account, then click on "add workout" on your Endomondo page, click on "draw route for new workout". Create your route on the map or satellite view and then add details like the time taken and activity type. Once you've saved your new route, then on your Endomondo homepage click on the down arrow next to the Twitter symbol, click on "export", I selected "GPX format" (this saves your hand drawn route map to your computer). Open up Strava and click on "upload activity", click on "file" in the left hand column, click on "choose files", click on the .gpx file that was saved from Endomondo.

    Ironically I used Endomondo 10 or 15 years ago before I found Strava. And I havent used Endomondo since, until I had to create my missing activity map.
