    Unfortunately, all that is currently exported is sports activity data for most sites. Since the standard data formats (fit, tcx, etc.) do not incorporate activity tracking data, any connectivity between a device and a site or app would have to be a custom upload between the device and the app, which is a large investment of time and resources. It also would require there to be enough user need to justify it (i.e. a material overlap of users along with the desire for those users to even want the functionality). They have added the ability to sync with Google Fit (set up through the app) and from there you may be able to sync with other platforms.

    I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.

    Is that a question? If so, the answer is no.

    For file exports it will save the files in a dated folder under TomTom Sports on your machine along with the ttbin. To get exported files you need to use the PC sync, the app sync will not export files, it will only upload. Note that for non-GPS activities you will not get KML or GPX files as these formats require GPS points. Please also note this only sets up the upload for future activities, it will not go back and reupload old ones. In addition, it will only upload sports activities, not daily activity tracking like steps.
