  • allow to Merge Laps

    Hi,
    I have a simple suggestion for the garmin connect.
    Please allow to Merge Laps.
    Sometimes laps are incorrect.. since user clicked twice on lap button or whatever...
    It will be helpful if would be possible to select two close laps and merge them so the distance and time is combined and you will calculate the speed and other factors for the new lap.

    In the same way you can also allow to split a lap into two.

    Why is this helpful?

    I have:

    lap 2 ....
    lap 3: 04:45 minutes
    lap 4: 00:16 minutes
    lap 5....

    I want to be able to convert it to:

    lap 2: ...
    lap 3: 05:01 minutes
    lap 4: ...


    This will be a widely used functionality! Please implement this. It shouldn't be hard.

    I believe the Strava website allows you to do that and the Fit File Repair Tool definitely allows you to merge laps.
    All file repairs are done using the Fit File Repair Tool.

    I am not a Garmin employee and I am not affiliated with them in any manner - other than I own three of their products.
    For all intents and purposes this is a peer-to-peer forum and any assistance provided is voluntary and on an 'as time allows' basis.
    Garmin Support from Garmin employees can be found here. Suggestions to Garmin or rants can be made here.

      I don't have Strava and Garmin can't assume that their customer owns a Strava account.
      The fact that 3rd party service providers allow such functionally makes my case stronger.

      This should be implemented with-in the domain of Garmin Connect.

        I highly doubt that Garmin will implement such functionality, we would probably have seen it already if they were going to.

        There are a number of sites out there that don't require you to have accounts like Strava do - Google will be your friend.

        And this site is primarily peer-to-peer assistance - suggestions should be sent directly to Garmin here.

        cheers

          I don't think Garmin is assuming anything. You're the one assuming that the functionality ought to be provided to Garmin customers and/or someone like yourself.

          The fact that 3rd party service providers allow such functionally makes my case stronger.
          What case? You have not established any obligation on Garmin's part to fulfil your 'requirement' to merge laps.

            This is a feature request forum.
            My request is a feature request.

            The fact that you sending me to 3rd party service providers doesn't solve the issue.

            The fact that there are 3rd party services that offer feature such as this implies that there is demand for it other than my request.

            Garmin should consider this - if they are even read something posted here.
