Split a Forerunner/Edge file (or a GPX file)
This form takes a workout history file from a Garmin Forerunner GPS receiver (.hst or .tcx, exported from the "Logbook" or "Training Center" software) -- or a standard GPX file -- and splits it into individual tracks, then packs them all into a single ZIP file for you to download. It will also convert accented letters and other special characters into valid XML codes, which compensates for a bug in some versions of Garmin's software.
NOTE: With each revision of the Training Centre software, Garmin seems to enjoy making minor changes to the XML file format that it outputs. Please let me know if files from a newer device are not working properly!
If you want to be able to split Logbook/TC files on your computer -- instead of having to upload them here -- you can download the command-line perl script (plain text or in a .zip file) that's behind this form. Of course, you need to have a perl interpreter installed on your machine.
After you've split up your file, upload your runs to the map form or use the on-line converter to create standard GPX files.
