I'm not sure how you normally sync your Fitbit or what has changed for that not to happen automatically anymore, but once you get that working, it should all work fine again.

I don't know what changed either but you were absolutely correct.

My device was keeping track of my steps, my app was not. Turns out I had to force that to sync with my device. All is good now.

It's good to have someone knowledgeable of all this electronic wizardry point me in the right direction when something goes awry.

Thanks!

Not a big deal, I just found it curious that when my miles went over, W4F put me on the John Muir Trail.
Was it next in line of some other trail choosing algorithm?

This has happened to me a couple of times too. I just change the trail to the one I desired. But the steps for that day are logged on to the trail that had miles logged on to it previously that day.

At least all our steps keep getting counted.

If steps get added to a trail I didn't want I go back and change the steps total to 0. I then select the trail I want and re-enter those steps on that day. That usually works for me. Also if I complete a trail and have a lot more steps than trail has I subtract the extras from that day and add it to the following day on the new trail. It might look like I walked a long way but at least the steps are going where I want them.

More or less. This only happens if you add steps when you've already completed a trail. W4F looks at it and thinks, "Well, she's already finished a trail but she's still adding steps. Where should they go? She hasn't told me! Arrgh! Hmm... I'll just put them on this other trail until I hear otherwise."
