What's the difference between manually added and recorded activities?
Recorded activities use GPS to track where you've been. Recorded activities have more accurate and detailed information about where you have been, how far you have travelled and the associated elevation profile. Based on this, recorded activities are able to show this information on the map and within the activity details.
Recorded activities are created by:
- Tapping 'Record an activity' from the main menu, or
- Following a route with automatic activity recording turned on in your preferences, which you can access from the main menu.
Manually Added Activities:
Manually added activities don't use GPS and simply add the route distance to your activity history.
Manuall added activities are created by:
- Adding an activity via the '+' button on the 'My Activities' screen, or
- If you had pre-existing activities, these are now classified as 'manually added'.
