Feature to Enable Automatic Elevation Corrections

The elevation gain on my Garmin Forerunner 910XT is horribly inaccurate.  I have to use Strava's manual correction feature for almost every ride I upload.  Would it be possible to add a user setting "ENABLE AUTOMATIC ELEVATION CORRECTION FOR ALL ACTIVITIES UPLOADED"?  I envision it as a Checkbox on your Account Settings screen.  Thanks! Brad

  • Not that my elevation is that far off with my garmin 510 but I think the elevation with set gps point is more accurate than a barometric altimeter. It would be nice to have the option of using it all the time or not at all. Garmin Connect offers this feature.

  • I second this! I have an Edge 510 and it must have a really bad barometric altimeter because the data seems way off every time. I too will go into the full website and manually select "Elevation Correction" on every ride. This is cumbersome on my smart phone - it'd be FANTASTIC to either enable auto-correction or to even give us the ability to select "Elevation Correction" from within the Strava smartphone app.

     

    Thanks,

  • I agree with the above.  Please add a feature to automatically correct the elevation on my rides.  It is tedious to manually correct elevation with each ride.

  • I recently changed from "Brand A" device to "Brand B" device. Sadly since my device manufactuer swap every ride is way way way inacurate and requires Elevation Auto Correction. And yes I ride alot including much elevation

    1. Please provide Elevation Auto Correction as a ride by ride option within the mobile/phone app. 

    or

    2. Please provide a permanent option to select and enable Elevation Auto correction as a chosen "default" setting on either or both the PC and the mobile/phone app.

    Strava is Tops. 

    Thank you, Adam :)

  • This seems like a no-brainer so I can only imagine that the automatic option isn't available because the extra processing power required would add to the load on their servers.

  • Ditto. I am getting fed up with doing this twice a day.

    Given I am a premium customer I am becoming increasingly disappointed with the lack of features Strava is adding for everyday users.

  • I also would love to see auto-correction on all my rides.  I use a garmin device to log my rides and its always inaccurate compared to the Strava values after auto-correction.

  • seconded?? Please add this feature. I have the same issue with what typically amounts to a 10-30% lower elevation gain on my Wahoo Elemnt Bolt which is using a barometric altimeter

  • It’s pretty annoying that this thread has been going for several years (most likely all contributors are paying Strava subscribers) and that it’s still ignored...does someone from Strava actually look at this?
