How do I Create a Route from History or a File Using the ELEMNT App?

You can create a route to sync to your ELEMNT from your ride history, or by using a .gpx or tcx file with the ELEMNT companion app.

Note: rides from history are not eligible for Turn by Turn notifications.

From ride history:

  1. From the Ride tab in the ELEMNT Companion App, select "ROUTES"
  2. In the "CREATE ROUTE" section, select "CREATE FROM HISTORY"
  3. Select the ride you want to create a route from. Enter a name for the route and hit "OK"
  4. You can now find the ride listed in your routes
  5. To load it onto your ELEMNT, tap the route to see the overview, then choose "SELECT ROUTE"
  6. The route is then automatically loaded onto the ELEMNT and available to ride by pressing "START"

From a .gpx or .tcx file:

  1. The .gpx/.tcx file must be stored on the phone. Find the .gpx/.tcx file on your phone (in file storage or in email).
  2. Tap the file and choose "Import with ELEMNT".
  3. Enter the name for the route and hit "OK".
  4. The route will now be listed under Routes.
  5. Tap on the route and choose "Select Route".
  6. Route will be imported on the ELEMNT (cell coverage or wifi will be required).
