Route Planner: Import Recorded Rides Easily

If you’ve got a Garmin Edge 605 or 705 and you’ve just gone for a ride, if you remembered to press “start” on your GPS at the beginning, your Edge will have recorded your route.  You can find the files in the Garmin/History folder on your device when you connect it to your computer.  Annoyingly, though, they’re saved in TCX format, which is a Garmin specific format.  These files were difficult to import into the route planner: you needed to go through all kinds of hoops to convert it to a GPX of the right type so you could import it and see your ride on your computer.  Now, however, with the latest release of the Route Planner, you can import TCX files natively.  Just select File / Import from the menu!

  1. I have used your GPS route planner app in the past, and was looking for it today and see it is no longer at any URL I can find. Did you discontinue the project? Is it archived anywhere? It was a great app. Please let me know what’s up.

    Thanks,

  2. Hi Jack, I’m afraid it has been retired for quite a few years now! While it did have quite a few very keen users, it just wasn’t popular enough to pay its way. I personally use ridewithgps.com these days for route planning.
