This may be old but my two cents and asking Garmin to add the option to change the start date. The reason is I have used Connect with my Edge 1030 for a 7 months. Just learning. I only use for cycling…
If you have Chrome, you can using developer tools.
Hit F12. Go to "network" in the bottom pane.
Go to the page of your gear. Take note of the code of your gear in the location/address bar of…
Like others, I have gear that predates the ability to add gear to Garmin Connect and cannot set the previous use.Is there anything stopping the user from adding gear with the actual First Use date, which could have been long before Garmin Connect ever came into being?
For instance, my bike has over 30000km, but only 5000 in Garmin Connect.That's a different issue from the First Use date issue that STOGISMOKER was whinging about. I just create a manual activity that is backdated to before I bought my Garmin FR235 and registered for a Garmin Connect account, to account for pre-existing mileage on old shoes. The manual activity doesn't even have to have activity type of Running, if avoiding messing up the statistics for the category is a concern.
- assuming here that Garmin will generate an alert when said gear is near end of life.No, it won't, but it will generate a notification (which you cannot get rid of) in Garmin Connect once the gear item has reached the max distance you specified for the gear item.
But it would be nice to be able to add previous use to gear used. Like others, I have gear that predates the ability to add gear to Garmin Connect and cannot set the previous use. For instance, my bike has over 30000km, but only 5000 in Garmin Connect.
This may be old but my two cents and asking Garmin to add the option to change the start date. The reason is I have used Connect with my Edge 1030 for a 7 months. Just learning. I only use for cycling. I have gear for each bike, gear for the trainer and gear for all bicycles. Well I missed a few months with the total and trainer. I’d like to go back and correct it. In hind site I should have created dummy gear to be able to use.
So Garmin people do follow these threads. So here is my request. There may be technical reasons or even corporate editors ethical reasons. If enough request it they will figure it out. Keeps the customers happy and loyal.
3 Years later, still the same problem here.
I added "rental" bike as new gear to collect all miles ridden on rental bikes during holidays and stared correcting some previous activities only to find out it had defaulted to 31 December and now inexplicably the start date cannot be corrected.
So now the question is do I delete the rental bike and start all over or just leave the mileage unallocated?
At least I would like Garmin to explain the reason why this cannot be corrected
