If you want to export or upload previous activities, or if an activity has not been transferred to a website automatically, you can transfer it manually.
Activities uploaded using MySports Connect
- Connect your TomTom GPS Sports watch to your computer.
- Open TomTom MySports Connect.
- Wait until MySports Connect has completed transferring your data and shows Up-to-date in the top right corner.
- Select the UPLOAD & EXPORT tab and make sure that the export file format and websites you want to upload to are added.
Tip: To get the best results we recommend that you use .FIT files. If this format does not give you the desired results, try .TCX, and then try .GPX.
- In TomTom MySports Connect, click the folder button.
A window opens showing folders for each day that your watch saved activities. In each folder you find activities in several file formats named after the type of activity and the starting time. For example, Running_11-45-15.ttbin is the file for a run started at 11:45 and 15 seconds.
- Double-click the .ttbin file for your activity.
MySports Connect re-exports your activity. The newly exported files are stored next to the .ttbin file in the same activity folder and the activity gets uploaded to the sports websites. There is no message confirming this.
Note: This does not re-upload activities to TomTom MySports. If you want to re-upload activities to TomTom MySports you need to delete the MySports URL file before you double-click the .ttbin file.
Activities uploaded using the MySports mobile app
When you upload activities using the MySports mobile app, file types for manual import like CSV, FIT or TCX are not stored on your computer. Hence it is best to use MySports Connect on your computer if you need those file types for manual uploads.
When you have already uploaded activities using the MySports mobile app, you can copy the ttbin file from iTunes or your Android device. Then connect your watch to the computer and double-click the .ttbin file for your activity.
Warning: Double-clicking the ttbin file for an activity that was already uploaded using the MySports mobile app will re-upload that activity to the TomTom MySports website, MapMyFitness and RunKeeper. This will duplicate the activity on these sites.
Locating the ttbin files in iTunes
- Connect your iOS device to your computer and wait for iTunes to open.
- Select your iOS device in the iTunes sidebar.
- Select the Apps tab and scroll down to File Sharing.
- Select MySports.
The ttbin files are listed on the right hand side.
- Select an activity file.
- Click Save to...
Locating the ttbin files on your Android device
- Connect your Android device to your computer.
- Open Windows Explorer and double click your Android device under Computer.
Open Finder and select your Android device in the side bar.
- The files will be located under: [name of your phone] > Phone > TomTom_MySports > [serial number of your watch] > workouts.
- Double click the ttbin file to upload it.
