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

  • 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,

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.
