Wrong distance after importing gpx-file

Postby Michael.De » Mon Sep 14, 2015 2:14 am

Hey everbody,

after importing the gpx-file of my Polar rcx5 the distance is not correct.

The distance after importing the hrm-file is about 29 km. This looks good.
Next importing the gpx-file. New distance for this ride is 23221 kilometers.
Deleting this entry and Reimport doesnt solve the problem. Polarpsersonaltrainer.com shows the correct distance.
Other trainings-session are correct imported - only a few files produce this error (2-3 times a year)

errorimport.JPG (119.06 KiB) Viewed 2349 times

Can anybody help?

You likely have a single bad trackpoint which is (0,0).
Edit your gpx file to locate this trackpoint and remove it. Then reimport.
Or post the gpx file and some one will likely edit it for you.
