The Strava mobile app currently does not support .gpx export forcing users to use leverage the desktop application as part of that workflow. As a trail runner who travels frequently (without a laptop) and relies on .gpx files for navigation in offline mountain environments, having the ability to export a .gpx file from a route published by a club group run or the route builder would be a powerful feature. Highly recommend adding an option to export .gpx files from the Strava mobile app. Thank you!

I use Strava with my Wahoo head unit for cycling and need to import GPX routes into the ELEMNT app to sync to the Wahoo for navigation. This is a really important feature for me.



Quite often my routes don't sync the last versions to my Garmin app and I struggle to download the GPX from Strava without going on my computer.

One way would be to add the possibility to download GPX directly from the application when looking at a route

Would it be possible to add a button?


Thank you

Very annoying lack of a simple feature, and when I try to connect to the web version of Strava from my smartphone, Android OS forces me back into the app...

Exporting a gpx (from the mobile app) to merge with the second one due to an auto watch save while at a hiking rest stop, would help to very quickly enable the truth to be more easily loaded.

This would be the simplest of useful features and please don’t make it another premium item.

This seems like a trick to stop you sharing your runs/walks to another platform.

Ridiculus cant even open it as a desk top on your phone to be able to download.

They are just paying lipservice and doing nothing as this could be added in moments and probably is there just not switched on.

People use  much better than strava plus more games and fun along the way.
