Edit Distance for an Activity

Can we please have an edit mileage feature.  I use a garmin watch when running but it often does not pick up at the start of the run, sometimes for quite some time, and therefore despite me running 10 miles, it only logs 4!!! Can we have the ability to manually edit the mileage.  And then show on the logs that mileage was edited.

It would also be good to edit the course, and plot the actual route taken to check the distance run.

Many thanks

There is a related Feature Suggestion found here: Manually add Distance for an Indoor/Stationary Activity

  • I voted with my wallet and let my premium account lapse.

  • Also canceled premium. Please add this feature which has been requested for over two years and I'm back. I'm often running on the same track and get cut heavily. Adding a separate manual entry is not an option as it doesn't recalculate the pace of the run. Last example: Correct distance: 4.08km - Strava distance: 3.2km. It always cuts almost a quarter of the distance on that track.

  • Dear Strava, hi!

    Like so many other people here, I often lose ~ 2k off the start of my runs where the GPS simply fails to pick up my location, and Strava doesn't let me add my route. Like other people on this thread, I'm unwilling to buy a premium account so long as the app keeps wildly mis-reporting my runs. And like so many others, I think that the strict adherence to "competitive integrity" is quite silly -- especially since in about 1/5 of cases Strava errs on the side of making me seem unnaturally fast rather than too slow. But I recognize that this is important to you if not to your users, so I'd like to propose a compromise solution:

     - In the most common glitch case I see, Strava starts the timer correctly, and even knows the start point of my route, but does not begin measuring my distance until some time into the run. The result is what I would call a "really slow teleport": Strava will be aware it took me 15 minutes to get from one point to another, but thinks i did not pass through any intermediate points: the distance between the two points is zero and the route is drawn as a straight line on the map. 

     - This is clearly physically impossible, so it must be an easy case to catch.  You also have two pieces of very relevant information already saved: the start and endpoints of the missing section, and the time taken to traverse it. I would:

        - auto-detect cases where teleporting has been recorded

        - offer users a button on such a run saying "would you like to correct this section"

        - keeping the endpoints fixed, allow a drag-and-snap of the route between them sort of like Google Maps does, so that users can report where they know they actually were. Time doesn't need to be modified.

     - Preserving the integrity of the competition that you value is still easy! Don't allow any segment records/PR's to be set over a region where this edit has been applied. This is fair anyway, since for any such missing region only an average speed can be known, with no information about instantaneous velocity. So information added by such an edit would only go into the overall distance/pace calculation but not to set times on any segments. This way we maintain the ability to compete with ourselves but don't mess with the leaderboards.

    The second kind of glitch I see will mis-record some time or distance (i'm still not sure which) to give me a weirdly fast time on the first few km. In this case, you could allow a modification of time/distance so long as it makes the user slower: this would let us improve the accuracy of the records and can't possibly mess with competitive value. This restriction is also easy to implement.

    What do you think? It would make me a lot happier to have these features!!

  • Yes. For example I don't like to use the GPS when I race, but I still like to use my garmin watch (on Indoor settings). Then I manually hit the lap button at each mile (I find it incredibly annoying if the watch has a different distance than the race miles). But obviously it says distance of 0 in the distance on my account, would be nice to be able to just change that to 13.1 miles, so I can have an accurate distance. Especially since it's a race so I can compare my races as I continue to do them. Seems like an easy fix since it's been requested for so long.....

  • Found a work around that's not so messy to see multiple workouts just to define distance and the other for HR.

    Here is the HOWTO:

    1* Get your .tcx or .gpx file from garmin (or other device you recorded)
    2* Open this file with notepad++
    3* Search for the first en last line with "<DistanceMeters>0.0</DistanceMeters>" and change the 0.0 in the distance you ran/biked, in meters.
    4* Search for the last line with "<AvgSpeed>0.0</AvgSpeed>" (on the bottom of the file) and change the 0.0 into the average speed you did, in km.
    5* Save and then upload the file with Strava
    6* Jump of joy for your stats are joined in one file (if your legs are not to tired)!

    Hope this helps out a bit.
    (ofcourse you will miss the Watt given... unless you had the file who recorded Watt with an ANT+...)

  • I would call it edit distance and time.  I run in a Track and Field and GPS never has an accurate measure.  Sometimes is longer, sometimes is shorter.  I am doing three workouts a week in this place and will be great if we can edit distance.   On Saturday training for any reason, my FR620 did not give the options to save, so I had to start again for a while to stop and get the option to save my activity.

  • Found this thread because I have the same user problem that everyone else has--I need a way to manually edit the distance and time. I like how this thread has been going on for 2 years and this feature still isn't available. Good job, Strava. What are your software engineers doing? Where are your product managers and why don't they see that is is a highly requested customer feature and prioritizing this?

  • Extremely frustrating. What's the problem? Just add the possibility to change distance (and time though distance is most important) manually already!

    No matter how modern or expensive your GPS watch there are several issues with how distance is measured. Resulting in incorrect data which is a real pain for everyone that wants to track their achievements  - i.e. your customers.

    If you are worried some people will do it to unjustly impress or something just put an icon "distance edited" next to edited activities.

    There really should be no technical challenge for your programmers.

    PS

    Oh, so I'm allowed to edit this post but not erroneous distances. Seriously...

  • Needless to say this is a must.

    Your app must either let us edit the mileage, or have much better processing to filter out outliers. You offer us neither right now. This morning I had another case of the GPS being stuck (maybe through a bad interaction with the Apple Watch app), having me cover a 5M distance while only recording 4.1M.

    Runkeeper has been doing this for years and it's proven useful time and again.

  • I like Strava, but this impossibility to correct bad GPS is a no-go for anything more than the free account.

  • I've posted here earlier about this issue but there hasn't been any change.

     

    I have now found a solution. Recently got a Garmin Foreruner 235 and entered the Garmin Connect ecosystem. Its great!. It allows me to edit distance along with a pile of other stuff including run start time, total run time and weather temperatures. Sure I could "cheat" - but who cares. I'd only be fooling myself

     

    So I wont be re-newing my Premium membership when it comes up next. I'll miss the Age and Weight Challenge tables - but that's all. My new ecosystem offers so much more. And when I enter a race I'll actually be able to have the distance recorded correctly.

  • This looks to a massive frustration for many. I have just missed out on a a new 1/2 marathon record time/ distance because Strava is unable to match what my Garmin has measured, distance wise. And, with no way of manually editing I'm, as other have frustratingly stated, stuck! So, premium membership, now cancelled, until this is fixed. :(

  • Quite disappointing to see that Strava users have been requesting this simple software change FOR NEARLY THREE YEARS! Exactly how long will your consideration take???

  • Yep can't believe a tech company in this day and age isn't seeing the big problem with this??

    I ran an official half marathon on Sunday and according to Strava only ran 20.9km. So now it doesn't credit me with the half marathon. Ridiculous. I even have the finishers medal to prove it!

     

    What on earth are we paying for with premium if we can't really do the things we want with our data?!

     

    :(

  • The battery life of the Garmin Edge runs out when I cycled a distance of only 109 km, so, the distance information was displayed to the Strava 109 km. only. Fortunately I use Android on mobile phone recording my activity, too with Endomondo application until finished the event of Audax 200 Rayong BRM at the distance of 208.61 km. within the duration 10h:38m:13s. How can I'll edit the mileage? Thank you so much.

  • I was using the Runtastic with premium account and there I was able to edit distance and duration.
    Some has suggested to me the Strava as better solution and today I tested it. First I have purhased the Premium account.
    Was my first 100km ride. In some point by accident I presed the stop button and I realized this after 15km. I thought that this isn't a problem because I will be able to correct this latter. After alot of search I didn't find how.
    How is possible that one competitor allows me to edit these details and strava not? These are features which must be added to allow me to track correctly my rides. Maybe guys from stava care only to sale and not about the clients which use the strava. For me after 101km rides is very important to have the complete ride and not part of it.
    I think I was very clear with this suggestion like more others from 2011 with the same problem. I will try to contact with their support to search this more.

  • I don't think this feature will ever get implemented, but I thought I would throw my support into it. Strava always rounds Garmin data down and it would be very nice to edit that. I've also noticed that the app on my Nexus 6 measures the distance I've run differently than my Garmin Fenix 2. I've been running with both on for the last couple weeks becuase the fenix has been crashing. The Strava app gives me more distance than the Garmin does, and credits me with a faster pace. So there will be no more than a 2 second difference in total time, but the Strava data will have most of my mile splits be 10-40 seconds faster than my Garmin data. 

    Anyway, I ran 18 miles on Sunday but Strava says I ran 18.5. That of course messes up my average pace data which can throw a wrench in planning race paces based on training. Editing that back down to 18 miles would be very nice.

  • Throwing in my support as well. Make this available, please, Strava... can't be too difficult.
    Just got a new Garmin watch, did an indoor interval training; I can edit the distance and pace in Garmin Connect, but this won't show or transfer to Strava. Without editing options, it looks like I have to abandon Strava as most of my winter training will be completely off and useless. Ashame... the network features are nice.

  • Wow.  After researching this quite a bit it appears that I can't edit my end point since my phone died half way through my ride.  Just adding one more comment from a disgruntled Strava user who assumed that he could edit the ride distance and time afterwards.  I was definitely able to do this on RunKeeper by editing the route on the map or the amount of time for an activity if something like this happened.  Obviously not an easy fix for Strava as they have comments on this going back a couple of years.  Thanks.

  • Throwing in my support as well.  Can't believe this has not been fix, I believe it is a bug, in the two+ years this thread has been going on. I like Strava but really? Two+ years and still no option for this?

  • OMG! When I found this thread and saw how old it was, I could not believe it has not been fixed! I found it when I saw that my PR on a 10k race was not recorded. Looks like my garmin fenix 3 only did 9,9 out of the 10k I ran... Very sad!

  • Why is everyone feeling like life is about to end with the unavailability of edit distance/time feature? If it's that important, which I know it is, and Strava is not doing anything about it after 2-3 years of requests, just quit Strava. And if you don't wanna quit at least never pay for premium. It's not worth it! You'd think they would at least comment here time to time to give an update of what their plan of action is but nope, they've been quiet forever. That alone speaks a ton about their support. I've seen many shortcomings with Strava but I'm not complaining because I'm using it for free. If you pay premium and you're frustrated because of the lack of this feature, and you keep paying for premium, then you are the problem. Cancel that premium, use Strava for free, and stop complaining. You can always use the feedback option to suggest features as a free user, so go FREE!!

  • Just to add my support here too: I ran a full official half marathon recently, my tomtom watch correctly recorded it as 13.1 miles, strava rounded it down to 13 miles. Its my personal best, but isn't showing up as such. Irritating. After three years of people requesting it, you'd have thought strava would have got the hint!

  • I am trying Strava out as I currently use TrainingPeaks.  I like the social feature of Strava, but if I can not edit my activities then I don't see how this is more useful for me than TrainingPeaks.  I did a 5 mile run on the treadmill today, yet my Garmin calculates my run distance as a 4.68 mile run.  I don't like the Strava response of add it as another manual entry...it kind of defeats the purpose of using a site like this.  I want to like Strava, but the lack of an edit workout feature may be the tipping point for me against it!

  • This is very frustrating.  I just ran 3.5 miles on the treadmill and my Suunto recorded it as 4.07 miles (no GPS data).  I edited it just fine in Suunto Movescount, but when I exported the run and reimported it to Strava, it jumped back to 4 miles.  I don't want to enter it manually; I want my heart rate data!  Please add this feature.

  • Adding my voice to the others. My phone died half way round my last run and I'd just like to be able to correct the route.

    If someone from Strava came on this forum and told us 'we will never implement this feature' I would accept that. It's the silence that's most frustrating.

  • Just had my app crash during a ride. I could crop it but no way to edit in the true length of the ride. It just drew a line straight home.

  • I completely agree with Tim Paul.  I understand you don't want people making up times and what not.  Couldn't you have edited activities/portions be excluded from records/KOM though?  It would be great to hear from someone from Strava.
