    This isn't a planned feature for us at this time, but please continue leaving your support and we'll consider the project as soon as we are able.

  • Hi Hans,

    It looks like some functionality remains with maps if your mobile device is offline when using the Strava app, but please keep in mind that we have not optimized the Strava App for offline use! It won't work perfectly in this state, but feel free to give it a try. Obviously, actions like trying to record an activity or refresh the activity feed won't work.

  • The is a very very useful feature if it can be added. Today, for example, both my friend and I were using Strava in a very popular cycling area in Northern California and we lost our cell phone connections...and we thus couldn't use Strava very effectively. I urge you guys to add this. It seems like a very common feature for people using your product, as running/cycling often take one outside regular cell phone coverage areas. Thanks!

  • Fully agree to say wo a very good network connection (specially when in mountains area) unfortunately strava app is useless.

  • I would love to see strava sync up with previously downloaded offline google maps better.  I tried making a route and using strava exclusively to navigate it this weekend - only to have it leave me in the dust.  The GPS route was there, but I couldn't get the map to download at a fine enough resolution to show street names.    Would also recommend making the route you are running work without mobile data turned on - any area with poor reception makes the program useless.

  • Elle,  That isn't an answer!  Please consider enabling a download for offline use or something that syncs with previously downloaded maps.

  • For now I use AllTrails.com for maps and offline navigation. Would be great to have one solution, not two.

  • Firstly....I'm loving Strava, great product and very socially motivating.

    If a 'download route map offline' feature existed in Strava I would go premium. I now have to subscribe for 'Ride with GPS' in order to navigate on my bike as there is very limited signal where i live. I need LIVE navigation because i don't have the ability to just absorb maps like some and i do get lost very easily!

    Feature should work like Ride with GPS does. Plot the route on website, sync to phone and click 'download' (over WiFi) and it will download the route map tiles and the tiles surrounding them (in case i still get lost or distracted!), i can then turn my mobile data off and also 3G/4G off (saving a lot of battery power!).

    Happy to volunteer for beta testing! :-)

  • I would also like this feature.  As it happens I can navigate quite well with just the GPS route and guess my turns but to see the proper map detail beneath would be useful.  I often cannot use mobile data (especially toward the end of the month) due to reaching the limit of my network's mobile data package.  Also there are many areas where signal is poor.

    As a interim solution for other users; it is possible to download off line maps in Google Maps and then have both apps running and switch between the two.  Saves paying for extra apps/subscriptions.

  • Agreed, being able to cache maps would be very, very useful - especially OpenCycle maps.  Most of my activities are in locations where reception is spotty or nonexistent.  Since Strava can't do this, I've been using Strava less and less and MotionX GPS more and more.  Records the same info such as max speed, altitude gained/lost, average speed, etc. and can share via FB, email, etc.  Doesn't track heart rate, but I don't need it to.  The other plus with MotionX:  when I'm finished with a ride and don't have service, I can see my stats immediately and don't have to wait to sync the feed.

  • Any update on this ?

    I would also think of going premium if Strava had this functionality.  I would like to create a route and be able to download the surrounding map and then follow off-line.

  • I have made this work last year.  

    1. Plan your routes using Strava.  Route planner

    2. Import them into Google Maps

    3. Before you ride (when you have WiFi access) bring up the route in Google Maps. 

    4. Ride.

    It not ideal but it works. Problems occur if you get out of Google Maps and come back in - it wants data access. 

    Strava already stores your routes offline - all they have to do is cache the map. So easy to fix this.

  • "Obviously, actions like trying to record an activity ... won't work"

    Oh, this wasn't obvious to me. I installed Strava on my iPad (because it won't install on my iPhone 4's iOS7).

    I expected to be able to record the route I cycled because, even though the iPad doesn't have cellular, it does have GPS.

    What more do you need to record? Just upload the recorded route when the iPad is back within wifi.

  • To see how the iPhone's assisted GPS works without the assistance, I switched to flight mode. No idea where the map came from but Googlemaps is the only downloaded map I've got, unless Apple maps does this automatically.
    It seemed to work perfectly, and also to use rather less power.

  • Dear Strava,
    Any news or feedback regarding the possibility to use the app with offline maps, as a premium member I think that we could have the possibility to do so. With the possibility to create routes on the the app we be a real good feature, and would avoid the use of different GPS /maps app when cell phone network is poor.
    Thanks
    Best
    Nicolas

  • So is this going to happen then or not?

     

    As already stated if using a phone (or GPS equipped device) you don't need to be online ( have a mobile signal) to record where you have travelled (plenty of other apps record your route and then upload the data once you have a connection to the internet) so why is it taking you so long to allow users to do this on strava?

  • Just pitching in to add that I'd be in favour of offline support too. I live out in the sticks in an area with no mobile signal; I downloaded strava to track my runs but as soon as I get halfway down the road I lose wifi signal and my run stops being tracked. The other day I ran 53 minutes and it only recorded a 0.1km run!!

    I've had to uninstall Strava for now, as without offline support it's completely useless for me.

  • I was really surprised to be in an area with no cellular coverage and no previously accessed data/feed appears in the app! (iOS). Isn't the feed and map data stored on the phone? What's the over 300MB of "Documents & Data" taking up space for if I can't access it when there's no internet connection?We really should be able to have access to everything even if we're offline. Please add this!!!

  • This morning I'm lost my progress again due cellular network issue. Previously. I'm have stopped using Strava about 6 month because this similar problem. Now I'm miss a bit and would try to recording again, but this problem still not resolved.

    Surprisingly, Google Fit App record my track and progress albeit my phone still offline, but Strava isn't. 

    That's happened when I'm in perfect fit and try to break my own record, but not record anything just show 0 km...that's very good.

    TLDR : just recording have same behavior like Google Fit App? It's run automatically without pressing anything on phone, record without hassle, just give permission to location access and ready to go.

  • So over here in New Zealand cell coverage is non existent on any extended bike ride.  The ability to download a basic map offline (similar to the offline maps option with google maps) before going for a new ride would be HUGE.  Then I could see where I am tracking on a route previously created, including elevation.  

    Since this isn't currently available, i'm reluctant to bother using my Strava for the ride, or spend time creating routes using Strava, what's the point?

  • Thank you to Tony Rosati for suggesting to import into Google Maps while we wait for Strava to catch up to 2018. I am doing some long distance, really specific cycling routes in Tuscany next week, and I need to make sure I don't get lost, and I need to have access to the routes I have planned. I am hoping Google Maps will save the day for my hubby and I.
