How can I export my network of tracks

Problem: your network of tracks may have gotten very huge or contains some corrupted items you can't identify. Therefore you may want to start anew or make some kind of backup.
Solution: in network tracks mode, select a range of objects and Edit > Copy these. The clipboard now contains GPX fragments of these items. You can paste that into a second TrailRunner document or into any text file.
Tip: you can also use this technique to give parts of your network of tracks to a friend for that he/she can import these segments.

Supported Fitness Devices, GPS receivers and file formats

TrailRunner directly and indirectly supports several workout recording devices. As it’s very time consuming to directly support fitness devices, I decided to interface with dedicated helper applications that do a much better job than I could do on my own. Go to TrailRunner > Preferences > Synchronize > Helper Applications to set the desired interface as described below.

Apple Nike+ iPod Sport Kit, Nike+ SportBand, Nike+GPS for iPhone.
Direct import of workout data when you attach your iPod as a volume, set the mount as volume option in iTunes. For the Nike+ SportBand and Nike+GPS iPhone app, in preferences set synchronization to, then in the main window click on Apple+Nike toolbar icon. Follow the screen instructions in TrailRunner to import your workouts from your account.

iPhone GPS Recording Apps
Most iPhone GPS recording apps are capable of sending a recorded session to your mac via email. If the file format is anything like GPX, KML or TCX then you can directly import the recording via drag and drop of the file onto the TrailRunner application Icon.
Some Applications like Trails, RaceBunny or iTrail use the TrailRunner native communication interface via wifi.

If you own a Polar S625x with Irda the only known way is to use a PC emulation with Polar Personal Trainer and then export a HRM file. Please let me know if you find any better solution. (Forum: MAC with polar watches)

Upload you data to, export as an Polar HRM XML file and import that into TrailRunner
