Export Workout to Garmin 500 => wrong folder

Export Workout to Garmin 500 => wrong folder

Postby LesMc » Wed May 28, 2014 3:44 pm

For a Workout, when I select "Export Selected -> To Device" for a given workout, the .fit file lands on the Garmin 500 in a folder named "NewFiles" instead of the "Workouts" folder. Consequently, when scrolling through the available workouts on the Garmin unit, the exported workout is not shown and therefore can not be chosen to "do Workout".

Has anybody else noticed this? Is there a work around?

Thanks.

The Edge 500 will process the contents of the newfiles directory on startup and put workouts into the workouts directory. This is how the Edge 500 is designed.
If you export selected workouts to file, rather than device, and you move the files to the 500 yourself, then you would also want to put them in the newfiles directory. (Also for Courses and Elevations .fit and .tcx files which should be put in newfiles)
