How to import a route into the Polar Flow web service and use it on a training device

You can import a route exported from a third party service into the Polar Flow web service and sync it to your Polar watch.

  1. Export a route from a third party web service. The file format should be GPX or TCX.
  2. Sign into Polar Flow.
  3. Go to Favorites by clicking the Favorites icon in the top right corner.
  4. Click Import route.
  5. Drag and drop the file you want to import or browse it from your computer.

    NOTE: You can only import GPX or TCX files, and the maximum file size is 25 MB.
  6. Click Import to start the upload.
  7. If the imported file contains several routes, choose which route you want to import.
  8. Name the route, and pick a sport if you want. You don’t have to specify the sport for the route yet. You can choose it when you start the exercise on your training device.
  9. Click Import. The route is then added to your Favorites.
  10. Sync the route to your training device with Polar FlowSync software. See the user manual of your training device for instructions.

    NOTE: If the route is long, it will be compressed into 500 waypoints when it is transferred to Grit X/Grit X Pro/Pacer Pro/V650/Vantage/Vantage V2. Polar Vantage V3 can accommodate up to 1500 waypoints.
  11. For instructions on how to start a training session with route guidance on your training device, see the user manual of your training device.
