Incorrect activity start location

Recently I've been having an issue with Strava. I start recording at the start of my ride, and stop at the end of my ride. When I upload it is showing my start location way off in the distance somewhere, connected with a straight line to my actual starting point.  This consistently happens with every activity.  The rest of the activity is very accurate, it's just always the start location is way off in the distance. This started happening a few weeks ago on my Google Pixel 2 phone. I even got a new phone (Google Pixel 4), and I'm still having the same issue. How can I fix this?

  • This is happening to me also. Google Pixel (1st Gen). Almost every activity I begin at home Strava decides to start recording at the stop sign 3/8 of a mile from my house. Seems to have begun sometime in January or early Feb. I have to crop beginning or end of nearly every activity.

  • Dave - you can access your activities on a computer and crop the inaccurate start off. Kind of a pain. I hope they fix it.

  • Thanks for the reply Eric.  This started happening for me around November/December 2019, first on a Pixel 2, now the exact same thing on a Pixel 4.  Very frustrating.  The group I ride with all use Strava on the same rides, and none experience the same issue.  Although they are not using a Pixel phone, so I suspect the issue is isolated to a Pixel software update that happened.  I've tried everything, but no luck, still happening.  I've resorted to not even using Strava anymore to record rides.  I'm now using Trailforks to record rides, then uploading to Strave after the fact.  This seems to have fixed the issue.

    Yes, aware of the cropping feature, and had been doing that sometimes, but you're right, it's a pain and not something I want to have to do after every ride.  Anyways, if you're riding on dirt I'd suggest using Trailforks to record.  Good luck!
