Live routes now plotted in Blue rather than Red

Since Version 4.21.0 of the iPhone app was released on 18 July 2016, when a cycling route is loaded to the record screen, the route appears in pale blue. Before this update, the route appeared in red (with the part of the route already completed in dark blue).

I feel the app developers have made a mistake, because the blue colour is the same as rivers and UK motorways. For those of us who use the Strava iPhone app as a live navigational tool, this is very confusing and can lead to wrong or missed turnings.

I would like Strava to change this back to the original red route colour as soon as possible.

  • I would like Strava developers to kindly fix this issue please even if I am the only one to bother flagging it. It remains a problem.

  • I like the red, it previously was confusing with the Segments that were highlighted in red. And you're much less likely to accidentally turn into a river.

  • Don't suppose Strava have done anything to make the route colour optional urt by any chance anyone? The pale blue is really confusing alongside waterways and UK motorways as everyone has said but the previous red was a bad conflict with segments too, really not well designed but surely an easy thing to allow users to set.

  • Agree - why no replies from Strava - red works.  Blue does not.

  • The Strava developers have had over 3 years to work on a fix to this problem. How are they getting on with it?

  • I agree 100% with these observations. All the blue roads merge with the route and leads to confusion. Could users be given the option to choose their own route colour? Richard

  • I have just followed a route in Belgium. The blue route matched the canals. I also found that in bright sunlight you could not see the white roads. The combination made it very difficult to follow. I would like to have the ability to change route and road colour or possibly a double tap to temporarily zoom in

  • I would have thought this is a simple change the Strava developers can make just to change the routes back to red in the next update to the app.
