Combine TCX or GPX files into one with Merge Activities

If you need to combine 2 or more activities from your GPS device into one, follow this guide.

It may happen that your Garmin or any other GPS tracking device looses signal, bugs or needs to restart during a run or a ride. You end with 2 or more workouts for this single activity, and you would want to be able to combine them into a single activity.
