Hi. For those who are banging their heads against the wall trying to get Polar data in to Strava. Try this 

Worked for me.

Now we just have to convince Strava to get this as standard import

Hi All,


I use TcxCreator for my polar RCX5 TdF edition.

TcxCreator merges gpx and hrm into one tcx file, which is able to merge gps, hr, cadance etc.

You are able to upload the tcx to strava.

It only uploads GPS data, it doesn't upload Heart Rate and Cadence. If Strava can fix this issue i will upgrade immediately
