We are releasing the long-waited routes features to the iOS version and at the same time, the Android version is being updated. Now you will have:
- Heatmaps – View the most popular roads, trails and tracks anywhere by activity type.
- Route planner – Tap or draw on a map to create the perfect run or ride beforehand.
- Route follow – Follow your previous routes or try routes that your friends has created.
- Route export, import and sharing – Export your route as a GPX file to any GPX supporting device for example to your watch (Garmin, Suunto, Polar) or import your favourite route and share it with the world.
How it works for iOS
Go to the Map screen, then tap the three squares on top right corner. Select a heatmap for an activity type. Now you can see the most used paths and might also discover some hidden gems.
Go to the Map screen. Tap on the map to set a starting point. Tap the icon that has three lines. Select a routing that you want to use. Draw your route by tapping on the map until you are satisfied with your route. Tap the Done button, give your route a name and save it. You can also select heatmaps and browse most used paths and then draw a route top of the heatmap. Save it and try your new route later!
Start a new workout and tap the Routes icon. Select a route, adjust your activity type and press GO!
Route export & import
