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

  • Agree, been here for a long time now, nothing will ever happen in this matter. Thank you Strava! Not premium anymore btw...

  • I like Strava - log all my cycing on it - and I pay for it too. BUT there is an issue regarding lack of response from Strava. It seems requests for easy and sensible app modifications are ignored:

    1. Adding a manual entry and including a route map. Not a complicated one I'm sure.

    2. Set Elevation Correction to ON or OFF for all uploads. Functionality is there, have to ask - WHY NOT?

    ???

  • Yes! I have Barometric on my new Edge 130. Useless! did a round on Sunday in very stable weather, 50 meters height difference (35 to 85) outside my house before and after my trip. Terrible!
    We need this feature! Strava please!!

  • According to my Garmin Vivoactive 3 I'm currently sat -90ft below sea level... I'm actually sat at 151ft above sea level. I need this function to be added ASAP!!! I have discovered the manual way of doing it but it takes ages to back track!! My latest ride was corrected and showed that I ACTUALLY DID 140FT LESS!!!! Add it Strava.... Loads of people want it.

    My Wahoo Elemnt is always 5-10% lower than actual as compared to corrected #s and my cycling buddy. It's always a jab from him when he has a few hundred feet more climbing than I do at the end of a ride :)

    Strava team please add this feature. At least explain why it hasn't been added yet or if it is being worked on.

  • I have a 910 XT.  My Altimeter is kaput.  So correction has to be done every time.  Seems strange not to be a feature as even the cheapest smart watches give altitude.  Garmin very behind the times on this.
