  6. Click the Upload button if in Garmin Connect Classic (or if in Garmin Connect Modern, click Menu button > Activities)
  7. Click on Manual Upload (or if in Garmin Connect Modern, click Import)
  8. Click on the Browse / Choose File button
  9. Go to Desktop
  10. Click on the saved file
  11. Click Open
  12. Click on Upload Activities from file button

Mac users:

  1. Open the Garmin Training Center application
  2. Select the activity to transfer
  3. Click on File in the menu bar
