Garmin is down for some reason, so there’s no uploading (Bluetooth-ily) to Strava, Endomondo or Ride with GPS right now. You don’t have to manually enter your rides, though. In fact, uploading your rides is faster than manually entering them and it’s as easy as easy gets.
Strava and Endomondo are the same (I didn’t bother with RWGPS).
Open your computer/laptop. Plug in your Garmin device. Open your web browser. Open up your homepage. Hit the “+” button for “add a workout”. Choose “Upload Activity” (Strava) or “Import from File” for Endomondo. Your activity will be in the “Activities” folder on your Garmin device. Choose the proper file by the date. Click “Open”, customize your info and click “Save”. You’re done. Your ride will appear on your activity feed.
Super simple and you get all of your intricate data from your ride profile, rather than just entering in the miles and time and getting an average speed you’ll get everything, including segment records.
UPDATE: Kecia commented that it’s possibly a ransomware issue at Garmin… They’re still down as of 11 am today (7/24). I confirmed Kecia’s comment against multiple news sources. I’d love to be a fly on the wall when Garmin tracks the perpetrators down. I have a feeling that’s going to get messy.
I hear it is a ransomware attack on Garmin. 😦
Wow! That’s big, going after Garmin. Stupid, but big. Obviously the trolls didn’t think this through… Garmin is not Strava.
Agreed. Definitely stupid.
Like we used to do in the days before Garmin devices had Bluetooth connectivity! 😆
Yup. God help us! Garmin is still locked out.
Seems the hackers are after a lazy 10 million! 💰
You’d think, in this case, as the hackers go, a little vigilante justice would be in order. Just find ’em and go in, guns a blazin’.
