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

    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?

  • 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!!

    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.
