It looks like macOS High Sierra (Version 10.13) has done Ascent in for me.

While it does open for me, it returns an error message:

Document Read Error
NSTimeZone cannot be decoded by non-keyed archivers

Good news:
The friend who started me with Ascent shared his file with me (and I sent mine to him to test on an older Mac.)
His opens fine on mine with High Sierra installed, so the OS is not the primary change.
Bad news:
Whatever corruption is in my file was introduced before 2016, I've tried opening my back-ups that go back t0 2016, but they all get the same error message.

So perhaps my only option is to get a full download from Garmin and import them all, which means I lose out on the ride names (Titles) and would need to start from scratch. That is one of the things I really like about Ascent, that I could search for a key word, knowing it was in the title and quickly filter to those rides.

I got the new Garmin 820 in March this year and that no longer would sync directly with Ascent, so I had to start exporting the tcx file from Garmin Connect to import here, so I had hopes that the back-up file from February this year would be a good restart point, but no...

Ascent works fine for me on High Sierra. I use tapiriik.com to automatically save Garmin Connect activities as local files (in my Dropbox).

Ascent still working fine on Mac OS High Sierra.

To copy my Garmin files into it I mostly just mount the GPS on the desktop and drag and drop the relevant file over directly. Mostly I use a Garmin 810 on the bike and that syncs directly to Strava at the end of a ride anyway, I use Ascent just as a local backup really.

Walks and sea-kayaking trips are logged with a few different devices, so export, etc, is th sensible option.

Can anyone recommend an alternative to Ascent for local use on my Mac? i really am very happy with Ascent, but surely it will stop working at some point?

BTW VeloViewer is a fantastic extra to Strava for analysis, etc. for the first time ever I can create a heat map of separate activities by date range or actual activity, etc. Very powerful in my opinion! Strava only does heat maps for certain activities, not including Kayaking :?

I am thinking of a new Garmin. Ascent is the only app I use for my workout data. I'm not really interested in anything that is online.

I should be able to manually import files from the GPS, right? I'm on Yosemite right now but will be going to Sierra when I get a spare minute. Glad to see it's still working on High Sierra!

My Garmin 810 recently died. I also use Ascent ... tried to sync and then manually import .fit files from a Garmin 520 and an 820 - would not recognize either the devices or the files. It DOES recognize a Garmin 1000 tho, auto sync and importing the .fit files. So while it may be an older device, that's what I moved to, just to be able to continue using Ascent.

With High Sierra, Ascent doesn't like to open most dialog boxes - seems to be an instant crash.

Thank you, that works like a charm!
