Correct and Edit bad GPS points in an Activity

Occasionally I've had problems with my cycling GPS data, and have been getting spikes and spurious readings which result in strange route fits, and miscalculation of actual distance traveled (usually overestimated). Are there any plans to allow for manual pruning or manipulation of bad GPS data points by the user, thereby allowing Strava to "fit" the route more closely to the actual ride? Obviously, my phone is the culprit for the bad data, but it would be really useful to have the ability in Strava to either 1) remove/edit the wonky GPS points, and/or 2) to fit/nudge the route manually to existing roads on the map when the route is not properly tracked. 

I've heard that other cycling apps can do this, but I don't have any experience with these. I think it would be very helpful for those of us who want our Strava logs to reflect our actual mileage :) I realize it's probably easier said than done, and of course this would effectively kill any segment stats in the affected area. But since I use Strava mostly for mileage and mapping, and less for segments (though I do use and enjoy these), I wouldn't be as concerned about the effects on the segment calculations. 

Anyways, thanks for considering this. Keep up the good work!

  • Just been for a run - I know it's 2km one way, 2km back.  Took me 20 mins.  Strava (or iPhone?) had a really bad signal (lots of spurious points away off the road) for first 1.5km - it has calculated the distance as 5km.  Hence pace of 4min/km whereas shoud be 5min/km.  I'm happy!  But a fraud!!  Please fix this so points can be edited etc!!

  • Any update on this feature becoming available? I really enjoy Strava in other respects, but my GPS has failed a couple of times recently, and if other similar services have implemented it, I think I would be forced to switch to using them rather than Strava.

    Thanks,

  • My ride got chopped today because my RFLKT lost connection and I assume somehow paused the ride when it crashed.   Again I would love to be able to add the missing miles. I also noticed it was paused at the end and rode a little to at least get some GPS points for the ride to finish off on.  I see no reason that Strava could not just let you use the existing "design a route" functionality to allow me to correct a ride so I can record my miles.  Obviously this would mean that you would loose any speed, segment and HR data - but at least you could track your miles and even get some kind idea of calories burnt. In the situation I had it could even give you a view of the average speed over the lost distance.   This feature makes so much sense for most of the people using Strava - since most people are only interested in recording miles, tracking effort, comparing against own previous rides, calories burnt, tracking the miles on bike components, etc.

  • I was amazed you can't edit a workout in Strava online.  Why is such a basic feature missing?  It seems my app crashed out 3/4 of the way through my run, so I completely missed my last 2km or so.  Sort it out guys

  • Have any of you that mainly travel on roads tried this tool: http://strava-tools.raceshape.com/snap/ ? I would love it if strava had an integrated tool that would use off road heat map data to allow users to fix their bad data. Most of the time, just using my own heat map data would work as I have usually ridden the same trail before. You could even limit it to correcting data and not adding any distance, etc. When I have bad data the distance / speed is always OVERestimated...

  • Like others have said, piling on.... bad GPS points, or, ummm, forgetting to re-start the garmin after a bathroom break.  Yeah...

  • I use Tapiriik (https://tapiriik.com/ to keep my Run-Keeper and Strava data in sync.  If I don't get the correct information from a run I just edit it in Run-Keeper (you can do this) until it's correct and then export it and re-import it into Strava.  Works like a dream.

  • I have just upgraded to Premium because it seemed promising and I am very disappointed.  The GPS has been shocking, I generally run the same 8km route daily and I have been getting different distances and completely impossible times.  I use this app to record my mileage and compete with myself, I really would like to be able to edit faulty mileage in order to keep a proper record.  I'm all for omitting an 'edited' run from segments e.t.c but the fact that Strava is misrepresenting (overestimating) my km and pace has already affected segments unfairly.  I have used 3 different iPhones when running with the app to cancel out the chance of it being a 'phone technical problem.'  I really hope this can be solved.

  • When I came to stop at the end of my run, I could see the (correct) total time on my iPhone - but yet, when I pressed the chequered flag to stop recording, it jumped back and amended what I'd done to a about 5% of the total route (with that element's time also). Why is it so temperemental?

  • @Elle - I'm surprised there is still nothing planned to address this... Would it be so difficult to leave alone the GPS data, and simply have the ability edit total distance and time, similar to what Garmin Connect does? (I'm sure you're familiar with that site's features, if not, it's pretty easy to check it out.) Certainly it would be nice to be able to modify the actual GPS route, but I'd put that as much lower a priority than simply enabling the ability to edit overall distance and time, and I don't think that would be nearly as huge an undertaking. Garmin realizes that GPS data is not sacred and let's their users edit; why not allow your users to correct for the same basic shortcomings. This is a pretty big missing feature and should be bumped up in your plans. Segments, etc. can be left alone as far as I'm concerned. Just give us the basics please.

    Perfect example (see attached image) is a race I ran this summer: GPS was ridiculous and all over the place - typical for downtown Chicago.  While Garmin doesn't let me edit the actual route, I can at the very least come back and modify (clean up) the overall distance which is really what I care about.  I want to see my actual "known" distance and pace I ran, not what some algorithm thinks I ran along a course that would be otherwise physically impossible.

  • Bottom line: the lack of the ability to edit total time & distance (treadmill runs, hello?) will not only keep me from becoming a premium user, it will keep me from remaining a user at all. There are simply too many other apps competing in this same sphere that have similar features.

  • Thanks @run nerd and @Ken,

    There are a lot of factors that we consider when making choices for the future direction of our product, and I hope you here can understand that we can't possibly do everything for all our users (we're still a small company). Please know that your feedback is heard, and we will consider the feedback as we move forward. Thanks!

  • @Elle, thanks for that.  Appreciate the feedback.  But again, we're not asking for everything under the sun; we consider this a basic piece of functionality that is sorely missing.  You may be a small company but that shouldn't stand in the way of addressing basic needs of your customers.  You offer a service, and encourage people to purchase "Premium" Strava.  But if this is not important for Strava to address, it is evident quite a few people have no desire to pay or continue paying for Premium, or might simply leave Strava altogether. I think it would go a long way if we could get a statement from Strava developers on a plan to include and estimated timeline.

  • @Elle, thanks for the updates and realistic assessment of the development status. Original poster here. As others have mentioned, having this functionality would be highly beneficial. Much like other recent improvements that have been made to the Strava mobile app and web functionality (all of which have been awesome), this would be a great way to entice more Premium Members to join, and also to retain your existing members. Even if not an immediate fix, it is definitely something that will be important in the long run, especially given that competing platforms already have such capabilities built in to their apps. Thanks again for staying on top of this. Cheers.

  • As a runner, I used Runkeeper for years, and you can log into the website and manually adjust the GPS points. Awesome feature, as sometimes the GPS bugs out an crosses a river or goes off course etc.

    This is a great feature to have when you are training, so keep track of my pace over long distances.

     

    Please consider adding this feature

  • Just adding my vote for this feature, Strava missed the first 1 km of my ride this morning, when you're just starting out every km counts :P

  • Editing incorrect GPS information needs to be implemented! - does it need to be made any more clear that this is considered a necessity by the people who use your app?

    The entire point of your app is completely undermined by these glitches - before I used Strava I used to go to Google maps, draw my route and measure it - time-consuming
    and tedious but at least it was accurate and didn't decide that i'd flown like Superman across blocks to rejoin the route when it found the signal again..

    If this is 'hard' to implement employ some more programmers. If you run the same route week in week out as i'm sure most people do then why can't it compare the two and
    figure out that you probably didn't fly over a bunch of houses? - why can't it interrogate the data and 'know' that you can't just suddenly move thru blocks of buildings like a ghost?

    Before you set out on a run couldn't you tell the App what run you were doing so it could compare the GPS it got with a previously stored route so that it could query spurious
    readings that are way-off base?

  • Bad gps points, due to tall buildings and running through tunnels/under passes means Strava gave me an unrealistic first Km and credited me with 6 PRs that I now have no chance of beating.
    Is there any solution to this ?  If I delete the activity will it reset my PRs back to their previous (realistic) values ?

  • Per my numerous comments earlier, I too am still waiting for this functionality to be added in some form or other.  I can't help but think this would be a fairly easy add in comparison to the other requests I see on here and solves a basic need/requirement.

  • I've given up on this.  Seems like Strava doesn't have the desire to address such a critical item.  

    Good thing there are plenty of other options out there(Runningahhead, MapMyRun, Garmin Connect ).  Garmin has taken care of all the features I need so I'll just use that exclusively!

  • Plus 1 for this function. I understand it can be done by exporting activities to other apps like endomondo and then re importing to strava but it seems unfortunate to have to follow this route. Karman filtering of the data to exclude spikes of 3x plus of expected activity speed would be a good start?

  • I moved from RunKeeper late last year due to peer pressure from friends, had two runs this week that the GPS started off dodgy so thought would edit map no probs to fix, am shocked that I can't do this in Strava like all the others by default!!!! Come on get your act together!!!

  • I have been running the same exact route, but it is always off. Why isn't there a easy way to manually move the gps points on the map to get accurate comparison?

    Can I import my run history into another app easily, and start using that?

  • This is a critical flaw. Without it the app cannot be a serious training tool - only an average social media tool for runners and cyclists.

  • Just went on a ride with a buddy.  My phone died at about 80% of my ride.  Since my friend did the same ride - exactly the same distance and time (only our age and body weight is different) - I was hoping to just copy his strava data for route and time, and that Strava would calculate and adjust the rest.  Nope. No such luck - now I'm stuck missing the last 2.4 miles of my ride, and no recourse.  I love Strava, but there simply has to be a way to edit the ride. Is this a way to prevent cheating or something? Because I can't imagine why a company like Strava cannot implement this when other competitors have done it.  Thanks for any response..

  • Many times I finish my route and get in the car to take off and find out later that it was also recording freeway time.  I use this tool for business (dog walking) because of it's path and timer.  Clients like to see where their pet went during their outing.  Everyone knows GPS reports are often off.  I switched to Strava from MapMyRide because I was told it was a great bike route recording tool.  If I can't edit what happened to make it accurate then that's a blocker for me.  Sorry.  

    Please listen to your users and post a resolution to this issue!
