From earlier in the thread i remember reading about tomtom vs garmin accounts and uploading to strava:
They (tomtom) have a proprietary file format called ttbin and you can't upload files manually to the site only off your device which you can't write to. There is a ttbin reader/converter on the net but that wouldn't gain you anything you couldn't do by download and editing off TomTom.

I have the same TomTom watch as RY does and did some digging around a bit under the hood when I first got it. It appears to be quite hard to interfere with compared with a Garmin before it hits the TomTom mysports site - you can't access the watch storage like a Garmin and you can't do manual uploads of files to the site either. There is an option to make TT sessions viewable to the public. So big fan of Strava though I am, it is arguably a safer bet to try to persuade him to just provide viewable public links to the TT site. I would place more confidence in what we see. Once it has been downloaded into a gpx/fit file it is easily fiddled with before reappearing on Strava. Unless someone stands over them to make sure it goes straight from one to the other.
So at this point, anything appearing on strava is suspect. We need direct links to his tomtom account. Won't happen.
