Frequently Asked Questions

A couple of options, sorted from easy to effortful:

  • You are a Strava user and have recorded your activity? Then go to "Load track" in the designer and log in to Strava. You can then simply select the activity with a click and don't have to deal with .gpx files at all.
  • Did you record the track with another sports app or your GPS watch, e.g. Komoot, Garmin or Runtastic? You can download the .gpx files from most providers. If it doesn't work in the app, then often at least on the website, e.g. at Garmin.
  • Was it an official event? Then have a look at the official event website, many organizers publish the track there.
  • If all else fails you can also use an online .gpx builder (just google it) and create the file manually - costs some time, but works great.

Sure, of course! The only requirement is a .gpx file. We explain how you can get it 100% under "Where can I get the .gpx file?".

    In the poster designer, click "Load track". In the window that opens you will find the Strava Connect button, which will redirect you to the Strava website. There you have to grant Footprinter access to your activities. Make sure you tick all the boxes for the import to work.

    We only use the access to create the poster and discard all loaded activities immediately. You can log out again at the same point via the logout or remove the permission directly from Strava. After that, Footprinter no longer has access.
