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

  • 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 :)

  • 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?

  • 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!!

    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.

  • I have the same issue here with my watch elevation being way out, think it is due to the amount of swimming in pools, and it is a pain to have to adjust each activity after it uploads.  I hate inaccurate data!  

    One option that may be  easier for Strava to help here and would help the strava community would be to have the Phone apps updated to have the ability to correct an individual activity elevation, as I need to log into the web based strava to do this currently.  Ideally a feature in the Strava user profile to turn on for all activities would be best.

    I see recently a lot of enhancements to Strava, hoping this one may get looked into.

  • 100% agree that this is needed. I have to log on to my PC after EVERY ride and correct the elevation.

    Why Oh why is this not an option as a default setting??

    How many years has this thread been running? .... any chance of an answer for this Strava?

  • Strava have been ignoring this for years. I pay and feel that nobody listens. No "enhancement" in recent times have had my interest. Galling that for as Elevation Corrections exists already the option to have it automated at upload would be simple. We pay the money and really don't get listened to. Make it a subscriber only option OR explain why you're not bothering......

  • Strava support have yet to demonstrate to me that they exist - I opened a ticket today and got an email directing me to all the answers that DON'T solve my issue. I'll wait and see if they get it resolved, whoever "they" are - some automated app spitting out useless responses. Any humans there?
