Export : Try to export ALL to Golden Cheetah

Post by farias »

Hi,

I try to export all my activities to Golden Cheetah and it's not works. I don't understand why I don't have one TCX by activities.
For me the most important for Application it's import and export.

On file I see two types:
# cat Test.tcx | grep "<Activity Sport" | awk '{print $2}' | sort -n | uniq -c
7213 Sport="Other">
1106 Sport="Running">

But it's possible to have "Biking" and "Swimming" ....

Hello,

your blog post seems to imply that there is something wrong with rubiTrack's TCX, which there is not. The format supports only a handful of activity types, there are no other types defined for TCX. The TCX file format also supports multiple activities per file. Almost no-one seems to care to implement a correct importer that can handle this. Last time I checked (1 month ago) Garmin does import rubiTrack TCX files.

Personally I recommend to always keep the original data which you imported into rubiTrack. If you have a Garmin device, you can simply copy the data off of it. If something goes wrong (or if you want to go with a different tool) you always have the original data to start with. It is a great backup. That is how I do it too, and I have zero intention to leave.

Best Regards
Markus
