  • Wrong Elevation readings

    What device are you using?
    Have turned on "elevation corrections" on Garmin Connect?

      The climb is a sum of all climbing during the activity. Even if all you have is deviations of a couple meters along your route, it adds up if you are encountering a lot of them on a long ride. But if you believe previous rides to be correct, then hopefully it's a one time thing. Sometimes starting out too soon after you get a satellite lock causes issues. Is there anything on the graphs that suggest such. How does the elevation graph compare to previous rides on that route?

      I'm just a forum member....
      I am not affiliated with Garmin other than I own some of their products. For all practical purposes this is a member-to-member help forum.
