Add support for barometric data from Garmin eTrex devices
My gps unit, the Gamin eTrex 35 touch, has a barometric altimeter. In Garmin Connect this data is correctly used to show the elevation gain on a ride.
However in Strava the data is ignored, and the normal gps-elevation data is used. The device is not in the list of 'trusted elevation data'-devices.
Now I can manually force this by adding "with barometer" to the gpx file, or use something like fitfiletools to change the device in the .fit file to an Edge device, and then it will use the barometric elevation data correctly. It's quite annoying having to do this every ride, and not being able to use the auto-sync of Garmin-Connect and Strava.
Adding the eTrex family of Garmin devices to the list of barometer devices in Strava seems like something that should be easy to realise? Could this please be done to make the life of eTrex Strava users easier? Thanks
