The Edge 810 and 510 can import .fit, .tcx* and .gpx file(s) into the NewFiles folder. All other files, such as .tcx and .crs, are not compatible with the cycling GPS.

To import the .fit or .gpx file(s):

  1. Plug Edge into computer
  2. Navigate to Edge drive
  3. Navigate to Garmin folder
  4. Navigate to NewFiles folder
  5. Place file(s) to be imported in NewFiles folder
  6. Disconnect Edge from computer

The Edge will convert the file to .fit and move it to the proper folder.

*The tcx file format was introduced in a software update. Update the Edge via WebUpdater if .tcx file(s) will not import.
