Show activity steps from tcx file

Mt. Kenya


Since a while ago, as indicated from support, Strava allows to show the steps taken in walking or hiking activities

This is limited only to some devices, but it could be extended if it would be allowed to obtain the steps data from the TCX file generated by many devices.

As you can see in this image, the steps data are contained in the <Steps> tag, inside the Extensions.LX and <Lap> structure.

As Strava already displays the calorie data, it will not be too complicated to access the step data in the TCX file to display it.

If this is supported, it would extend the compatibility of the step count with more devices.
