Is there a way to delete your own Fetch miles that you know to be wrong?
I deleted a wrong GPS file that automatically reloaded this morning, but I was still allocated three Fetch mile records for it.
I've created feature request 845 for this feature, because I cannot see a delete option for my own Fetch miles.

Yes, after your name there's a link to delete the mile:

I think he means delete mile attempts.

Thanks, Sigh and Stu.
Yes, they are times (personal records, not necessarily PBs) for Fetch miles.
I'd forgotten to stop my GPS watch before driving home (busy afternoon). I trimmed the route at home, but that did not remove the Fetch mile records. Deleting the trimmed route did remove the records. However, the next day the route was automatically reloaded. I deleted it wholesale, but this time the Fetch mile records stayed in place.
I can't see a way to delete wrong records like these ones. Hence my question above, and feature request 845.

We can delete the miles we have created and our guest book entries, but not our wrong Fetch mile records.

Fetch has enabled us to delete our wrong entries.
Relatedly, if one of your entries was really for rocketeering or cycling, not running, but you didn't remember to change activity type from the default, you might find your name in the top 10 fastest miles for running. Depending on the time, it might raise some eyebrows.
Currently, the fastest time for a run mile is 8 seconds.

Three of the top four cycling miles are from Zwift :-( (And the other has a distinctly odd GPS trace.)

I thought Zwift training was excluded from the Fetch games?

Regarding Zwift, unless something has changed recently, I think if users upload Zwift activities as GPX files (rather than FIT files), Fetch doesn’t have a way of spotting that they’re ‘virtual’ rides.

Got something to say?
