PacePro and Garmin Connect Course elevation corrections

Hi,

Partly off-topic, but very related to the future use of 945 with PacePro.

As we are supposed to get that PacePro has anyone got any idea is Garmin going to fix Connect for forcefully elevation correcting courses*?
As PacePro is pretty pointless if Garmin has done elevation corrections that are waayy off**, (and how come their data is so bad? as GPS Visualizer seems to have spot on data for elevation).

I can upload the GPX to 945 with putting the correct GPX file to GARMIN\NEWFILES, but then Garmin Connect doesn't see that and can't be used to create PacePro and
what I've understood even that the PacePro is on the watch it doesn't allow making those adjustments for Pacing Strategy and Uphill Effort.

Does someone have any idea how one could make a course to Garmin from GPX so that the elevation data is kept from GPX?

** Both are made from same GPX: https://connect.garmin.com/modern/course/27537352 vs. http://www.movescount.com/map?route=4898714&lat=60.29596419099997&lon=24.575443170000028&zoom=14&activity=991&style=suunto-dark

  • On the subject. Does anyone know what is Garmin's source for elevation corrections? Is it globally the same or regional? I haven't managed to find any specific information about it. 

    "Elevation Corrections are calculated with data from professional surveys instead of the data from your device. If your device has a barometric altimeter, Elevation Corrections are disabled by default."

    Professional surveys... And if device has a barometric altimeter why do they run the elevation corrections when creating course from activity done with device with barometric altimeter.

    They could do the elevation corrections like: https://www.gpsvisualizer.com/DEM_coverage.php  Use the best data to given areas. At lest for gpsvisualizer's data seems to be pretty good over Garmin's bad data.

    But first step is admitting that they have bad data and give us options to disable the elevation corrections globally. For activities and especially for courses!

    Second step would fix the data to be better.
