Attach a Route (map) when entering a 'Manual Entry'

It is really frustrating when a device destroys your data!!! In my case an 18 hour ride and nothing to show for it.

What do we do .. only solution at the moment is to add a Manual Entry.

Currently there is no image of the route taken when adding a 'Manual Entry'.

If we could import a route (gpx or  select one of 'My Routes') it would greatly enhance the entry.

Note: no time data would be available from the file ... that is expected.

  • Unless there is a really hidden button I have not discovered, there seems no way to use Strava unless you ride with a GPS device. So until that is in place, I use mapmyride to record all of my activity and log on to Strava to interact with the rest of the cycling club. Why have a manual map maker without a button for 'did this workout?'

     

    Cheers

  • One more vote for adding the capability to choose one of my saved routes when I manually enter an activity, Strava. I use MapMyRide and am trying to switch to Strava because some friends use it, but I also do not like taking my phone with me on a run, so this is a HUGE lacking feature for me. I spent 20 minutes trying to figure out how to do it before I realized it wasn't possible. This could be a deal-breaker.

  • Please include an add route map feature to manual entries. Sometimes the GPS just doesn't pick up. One more vote!

  • I just came over to Strava from MapMyRide (after endless hounding from friends), and found that this feature is lacking.  Seriously???  How much more of a basic feature could this be?

    What happens when your GPS doesn't track?  Runs out of batteries?  Old school people who don't use one?  My commuter bike just has a basic cyclocomputer, and I'm perfectly OK with this.  I tried to enter my morning work commute, and can't enter data other than time and distance.  Please, Strava:  add this capability.

  • It's disappointing that this suggestion is nearly a year old and has over 70 customer comments in favor of it, yet it is still not deemed a high priority by Strava.  It's such a basic feature and is a key component of every other competitor system I've used.  I personally know two people who've gone back to RunKeeper because of Strava's inability to make this work.  And even though I think Strava is by far the best in all other areas, I'm close to being a third.  The lack of response beyond "we have priorities" is disappointing.

  • I completely agree with Mike, Brett, and the majority of the comments posted. I'm also a former user of MapMyRide, Endomondo, and several other cycling tracking applications. They all have some issues. I do like competing with and tracking my friends using Strava. However, I need to repeat what's been posted several times previously - what's the point of having a route building tool when you can't use it for manual entry?! This past Sunday only the 2nd half of a 50-mile ride got recorded. I have the route sheet from the ride so I used the route builder tool to complete the ride. I had time of ride and the other cycling stats to complete the ride entry manually. I thought this was a cool feature. However, after some effort, I was very disappointed when I realized that I couldn't use this completed route as a manual entry. To me this is such a basic and needed capability. It was also disappointing to read that this capability isn't high on Strava's list of priorities.

    I'm a retired NASA Aerospace Engineer with much experience in FORTRAN and C++. Since it's been nearly a year since this capability was suggested, I could learn the code required for Strava and develop this capability from my home before Strava gets around to it. I'm sure this is a lot easier than rocket science.

  • I agree. I've just signed up on Strava after some serious internet reserch to find the best software and I can't belive that this BASIC functionality is not implemented!

    After returning from a ride I discovered that for some reason my GPX file contained no/corrupted time stamp data and so I am therefore unable to associate it with an activity. I incorrectly assumed that this could be done simply by selecting one of my pre-defined routes but amazingly no!

    Come on, pull your finger out. Get the basics right first before implementing additional features!

  • After several days of research to find the best way around this problem, I've just discovered a really easy and simple solution :-)

    1. Goto www.mygpsfiles.com

    2. Take your GPX/TCX file (either exported from Strava Route Builder/your own GPS/other mapping software) and drag it into the main map window to load it up.

    3. Open the "Window-Toolbox" and you will find a whole host of excellent utilities to edit your files. Here you can reset the date/time of your ride, set an average speed along with loads more.

    4. Export out the file, ensuring its in GPX format (the TCX option does'nt appear compatible with Strava).

    5. Add a new activity in Strava by uploading the resultant GPX file.

    Hey presto, the file loads successfully with the new date/time stamp. Its not ideal in that it uses a single average speed for the ride, but at least you now have a way to capture those runs/cycles when you have a missing/corrupted file.

     

    Cheers!

  • I ve followed Phil Ware's advice (third one down from top) its long winded, but it does work!!, it even included segments,

  • Just joined and very disappointed to see this most basic feature is not available. My Garmin is almost dead and I don't generally run with my phone, so why wouldn't the system allow me to attach my timings to a pre-existing route I run regularly. It can't be that difficult, surely. Very frustrating.

  • I agree guys, this is a really critical feature. My guess is that there's some good business reason why you haven't done this - as it would allow people to contribute less data - but even if I'm right about that I actually think you'd encourage more adopters by making this route front and center. People who don't want to buy a gps device yet (or carry their phone), but nevertheless would be fanatical strava users. Please please please!

  • Phil Ware's solution is the best one yet. Just be carefull to edit a very slow pace to not conflict with the KOM tables.

    Would be usefull if Strava would add this feature though. It's a shame when you're out and your route is partially not registered and you like to keep track of what you've done.

  • I'm all for this option, too. I occasionally forget to take my GPS watch. I rarely, if ever, run with my mobile phone. My battery occasionally dies. GPS signal can be lost. And at the moment Garmin keep losing my runs (despite telling me they've uploaded successfully). If I've run a route, then run it again but with no file to upload to be able to enter a manual run saying it was the same route as run xxx would be super, as that way although I'd only get an average pace for the entire route, at least it would appear on a map and would include elevation gain and all would be added to my totals (year and all time).

  • Could do this very easily when using Runkeeper. Why Strava can i not link one of 'My Routes' to a manual entry. can only be a simply bit of programming. Come on Strava sort it !!!!!!

  • My wife said she would join if this was a feature.  Additionally, it would be great to add somebody else to your activity (not sure if that's a separate thread or not).  My wife and I do many runs together, and she doesn't want to have to record the runs since I'm already doing it.

    You can give your wife your run data by exporting it from your account to a GPX file and import it to hers. I have done this a few times with friends when they didn't have the app running.

  • Pretty basic functionality this.  Widely available on many of the free apps. Come on Strava raise your game.

  • Another request for this. I use the Strava mobile app for cycling which is great but don't want to carry my phone or buy another gps device for running. I live in a hilly area so the elevation data is really useful - I've created the routes so the information is there but I can't use it. As well as being frustrating to use, it also undermines the Dashboard and Training Logs which is a shame as these are a great tools otherwise.

  • I would also like to use a feature allowing me to show one of  'My Routes' on my record when making a manual entry.

  • Over the last two weeks strava (my phones GPS?) crippled three of my runs, with anything between 400m and 6km missing, what's the point?  Is there a way to map an actual run (overlay it) to a route after the fact?

  • Actually, I'm at a total loss as to what the route builder feature is meant to be used for if you can't check the route in for an activity!

  • I agree with this issue: sometimes I don't want to carry my smartphone but want to register my activity in Strava.
    Then being able to use a route from my route-collection (or copy a former activity!) would be very convenient.
    It also adds to building up a full activity history.
