The original Dash and the Dash L10 record data into the .rde (Stages Ride File) file format, which allows it to log more data than other bike computers. Since this format is designed to be used with Stages Link and may not work with all other third party sites, files can be converted by downloading the file from Stages Link under the Download (FIT) link. This feature is available on both free and premium Stages Link accounts, and will appear beside .rde files exclusively; other file formats will only have an option to download in their existing format.
The Stages Dash L10 is also able to export files by converting them on the device. To automatically convert activity files on your Dash L10, go to Main Menu > Settings > .Fit Export > Enabled. Note that this will result in a delay in saving your files while they are converted to the new format. Converted files will remain in the fit directory of the device's file system.
REMINDER: Stages Link provides data brokering services, which allows the automatic uploading of rides to supported 3rd party sites. By setting up a connection in your Stages Link account, you can bypass the need to convert your files.
