gimporter widget - Import FIT/GPX from Android

Description

*SEE THE NOTES BELOW BEFORE COMPLAINING ABOUT THE APP*</p><p></p><p>Imagine you are on the go and want to upload a course to your Garmin device to follow the track. As of now, this involves uploading the gpx file to the Garmin web site, somehow create a course from it and then select "Export to device" in the mobile app.</p><p></p><p>Here comes gimporter. Simply download your FIT and GPX files with "gimporter" from the "Download" folder of your Android device. GPX will be automatically converted to a FIT course.</p>

What’s New

</p><p>Notes:</p><p>* Since 2019 the Garmin Connect App just refuses the connection from gimporter to gexporter, if the phone has no internet access (although none is needed).</p><p> Please bug Garmin with reports about: "`makeWebRequest` not working to `localhost`, if the phone has no internet access."* Keep the Android App open and on top</p><p>* On some devices you have to disable WiFi on the Garmin device to get a connection to the phone app.</p>

Das was die Garmin Programierer nicht hinbekommen oder wollen , funktioniert hier einwandfrei ... der Strecken sync während einer Aufzeichnung, um Problemlos umplanen zu könne ohne die Aufzeichnung zu stoppen Scheibe abschneiden @Garmin :-)

Great job! Looking for the next step: getting a fit file from the activities folder on the device and generate a gpx file on the smartphone ;-)

This app reduces the time required to upload a gpx file to the watch tremendously. It is really sad that it does not work when the phone has no internet access, but otherwise it fills a big usability gap. To be honest, Garmin connect should work like this out of the box!

Even though Forerunner 735 is listed as compatible, the 745 is not, so I can't install it on my watch. I'm sure it should be compatible. Please add 745 to the list.

simply the best solution for adding fit-course during activity! i use it in connection with PlotAroute. thank you!

Must have essential tool. This is the only way to transfer tracks drawn on the phone (Locus Map) to FR945. Strava and Connect don't support the topo maps I use.

Completely useless! It only works while you have a mobile signal. No support questions answered - 1 star

Using it with Edge 1030+ on which it works great! Unfortunately it is not marked compatible with the Tactix Delta, hopefully it will happen soon.

Great work! Thanks for your effort!

Thanks a lot, sometimes you just want to get down to the ground truth of a raw GPX file and forego all fancy integrations that only add more layers that may or may not work.

Works great, would it be possible to create a server version for windows ? Then it would get 5 stars !! ;-)

Great idea, not functional yet for me (fenix 6x pro, Samsung s8. Shows not items in folder on Phone app (no files to serve) . Then Connection fails.

You either have to "share" the gpx file with the app, or put the file in the "Download" folder on your phone.

Excellent. Works perfectly and very easy to use. I can now easily transfer FIT files from my phone (where I create them in plotaroute.com). Highly recommended.

Hello there, I am getting "Connection failed" error after update to version 6.0.3. Until that version gimporter was working great. But know there is no reason to use it :(. I am using Garmin Oregon 700 with cooperation with Huawei P30 pro.

You have to disable WiFi on the Edge for the download. Sorry... Just found out lately.

Importuje gpx dobře, ale bohužel hodinky si trasu při navigaci přepočítají podle sebe a ignorují trasu kterou jsem chtěl jet.

Great concept, easy, fast and straightforward. Thanks for sharing your work!
