Since Garmin Training Center for Mac and Windows has been discontinued, we encourage everyone to move important activities from Garmin Training Center to our growing online community Garmin Connect, which is our full featured web analysis software that continues to add new and exciting features. Both PC and Mac users have the ability to manually upload multiple activities from Training Center to a Garmin Connect account.

Windows users:

  1. Open Training Center
  2. Right click on activity or date range to be exported*
  3. Select Export "date/time" or "Date range"
  4. Save it to your computer "Desktop"
  5. Sign into Garmin Connect
  6. Click Menu icon
  7. Select Activities
  8. Click Import
  9. Click Browse / Choose File button
  10. Navigate to file saved on Desktop
  11. Click on the saved file
  12. Click Open
  13. Click on Upload Activities from file

*Up to one week worth of data can be exported at one time. However, uploading one activity at a time is recommended for the best possibility of a successful upload.

Mac users:

  1. Open Training Center
  2. Select activity to transfer
  3. Click on Activity or date range in menu bar
  4. Click on Send "date/time" to Garmin Connect
  5. Type in Username and Password for Garmin Connect. (Only required once)

The file should now be available to view in Garmin Connect. Issues may occur when uploading to Garmin Connect due to file size limitation or if data from Training Center is corrupted.
