    Hi Mike,

    Thank you for your help.

    For some reason Garmin Connect still says on manual upload:
    An error occurred with your upload. Please try again.

    • hi NikoPelkonen,

      I had to remove the R-R data from the file but this file should now upload.

      cheers

        The FFRT opened your file and it looks good. You can total up the individual laps to see if they match your official stats.

        Thanks but the file you updated is exactly the same as the original. Total distance is wrong and the problem is on the 8th kilometer

          Thanks, that seemed to do the trick.
          I had problem downloading HR data from swim strap to watch after the exercise. So maybe something went wrong there.

                • Hello,

                  Can anyone with the appropriate tool please fix this FIT file me:
                  https://www.dropbox.com/s/z5pcthjres...58-31.fit?dl=0

                  This ride is about 5 hrs and at about 1.25 hrs into it there is a bad Lat, Lon pair. It’s over in the eastern hemisphere and me and the rest of the ride are in Texas. I am unsure if this is the only problem.

                  i have tried several free tools and have not been successful. One saved 4 miles of my 69.2 mile ride, but I’m still hopeful all of it can be saved since it appears all the data is in the file.

                  Thank you,
                  Bob

                    One corrupt GPS record terminated with extreme prejudice - give this file a try.

                    cheers

                    • Many thanks to Kiwimtnbkr for taking care of my file. It uploaded to Garmin Connect and Strava without an issues and I could see my ride results!

                      It also looks like kiwimtnbkr takes care of a lot of files for various riders. It’s great the forum has him.

                      best regards,
                      Bob

                      • Hi Mike, would it be possible to help me out as well? I tried uploading my file to kiesewetter, but it doesn't seem to work (won't return anything after clicking on convert to autofix). Thank you so much! Best, Eva

                            • Looks like this is the thread to post in if you need a fit file fixed. I'm on a mac so I can't use the http://fitfilerepairtool.info/download/ to fix it. It's from a workout I did on Zwift. Thanks in advance!
