For mobile Routes, Orient the map in the direction you're moving

The new routes feature is great now that it is view able from the iphone, but it would be really nice if the map rotated to the direction you are facing. I don't care about turn by turn directions, but using a directional, centered map sections of roads where you need to make a lot of turns would be very helpful. This would be great it I could open it occasionally while its mounted to my stem.

  • +1 from me. Such a basic function to have on an app like this. I'm shocked how long this post has been unresolved for.

  • Totally agree with this.  I think the only way we'll get Strava to listen is to review the app on App Store - suggest we all do this

  • So, Strava guys, what's the deal - 5 years of requests (read: pleadings) to orient the map route in the direction of travel and no response? It would be nice to have a Strava reply to all of us in this string. What say you?

  • Come on guys, nearly 6 years since the initial request and still no automatic map rotation.

    I won't renew my summit until this has been added, this is so basic for an app that's supposed to track activities.

  • What is happening with this request? I will have to use another app that can actually do this. Any suggestions?

  • Perhaps switch to CycleWe....

    CycleWE Cycling Community - Plan Rides, Meet Cyclists & Track GPS by CycleWE B.V.

    https://appsto.re/gb/Dqu95.i

    I saw this mentioned last month in Bike Etc and Cyclist Magazine, created by an ex pro rider. Might be worth a look if Strava don't pull their thumbs out of the asses!

    I agree too, it's the same behaviour you can find in any automotive navigation system!

  • I'm new to Strava and was quite shocked to find the map will only orientate "North Up". Even more so to see how many years users have been requesting this fairly obvious feature for with no progress. Not really feeling the urge to upgrade to premium if the map facility is so basic.

  • One of the last features needed to make strava perfect. PLEASE help with this one.

  • Your backlog? how long is your backlog? it would seem from these posts that it was first requested in 2014....i have been on strava since then and can't see that you have done 2 years work on making strava better without this issue finally getting to the top of your list??? Used the route today and got fed up having to stop at junctions to get my head around which way the map was telling me to go. You are letting us use the route but have providing us with a product that is dangerous to use whilst cycling. A reply would be great but reading the posts below i don't think that will be anytime soon!!! Shame as generally its a great product

  • It's quite embarrassing when you lead a group of riders off course just because you were not able to interpret which way to turn from the north only oriented map. I was thinking of going premium but would hold off and perhaps look for alternative solutions till this gets implemented.

  • Why is the map routing always based on north as top? What normal person uses it this way when following visual directions. Please change to direction of travel like every other map when actively routing.

  • Just had another comment to Strava come through on my email and wonder if STRAVA actually read these comments as STARVA don't appear to have ever replied?

    Great App.

    A little tweak needed on the maps - which is standard around the world for following a map..

    STRAVA support.....clearly never turn up for work or just can't be arsed...

  • As someone already wrote: most obviously never comes... Garmin sells gear that implements just this AND Strava segments. They won't jeopardize this tasty joint venture with a supreme bike/sports gear vendor just for a bunch of people complaining and threatening to cease premium membership (which in itself is a joke looking at the need for that to get live (!) speed display). Too much money to be made with all the other users still happy as it is.
    Workaround already mentioned: export GPX and use that with offline capable biking/navigation apps. I use Komoot for this. Sad that I cannot have Strava segments displayed will riding but having navigation and live speed displayed at least

  • North up is great for planning. Track up is a necessity for navigation. Not having a track up option is a dealbreaker for me.

  • I’ve just signed up to a free trial of Summit, but this has really put me off, it’s simply to much of a distraction when riding... Such a shame 😔

  • Hello 
     regarding the route orientation, Cyclometer does it perfectly... I don't think it takes 10 years of R&D to do it in an app, more half a day for an average dev guy... so, it must be a strategy, but which one ?  so disappointing...

  • From the mail we received, the strategy is clear: $$$

    If the map would orient in the direction of travel I might put up the cash, for now, too bad I don't care about segment leaderboards and the people on  top of it.

  • I find it strange that whatever fault on any subject you find with strava. All the support forums like this have complaints going back years all asking for improvements on the given subject, but nothing ever improves, your comments are requests are falling on deaf eyes. They simply aren't interested in anything we comment about. its simply  put up and shut up mentality. I have tried contacting them through customer support and I am sure the emails are not even read by a person, judging by the stock replies I get on any subject. They basically read Piss off we are not interested in what you have to say, in a corporate response. I have stopped my re newel to summit due to this lack of customer care. 

    Now with the new launch of updates they had the golden opportunity to improve and implement are improvements and recommendations, but surprise surprise we get crap that hardly anyone whats but you have to pay for it now.  Its all about money and nothing to do with the subscribers.

  • Thanks everyone - we are discussing this request and it is currently under review. That means it's been added to our backlog of projects to tackle, but I don't currently have any further updates or a timeline.

  • Yikes, going to throw my hat into the ring and say I'm pretty annoyed that I spent ages making a route each way for my commute then come to it and it doesn't really work for navigation. This is a top priority for me in an app like this, for all the fancy features it lacks the basics… Will be going back to google maps until it's updated!

  • OK guys Strava have no interest in providing turn by turn navigation and a proper map within the app. suspect their core demographic are hard core cyclists running Garmin devices so they have no reason to fix the iPhone app. So with this in mind I have a solution!!!

    1. in strava website EXPORT the route as a GPX file.

    2. in google maps website click the top left burger and click 'your places'

    3. click on 'maps' in the tabs along the top then select CREATE MAP

    now you will be in the create map screen and on this screen is a big fat IMPORT button

    4. import your GPX file, give the map a name and save it

    5. use google maps on your iOS or Droid device and your imported route will be there to use!!

  • Guys, while waiting for Strava to wake-up on this...I just figured out that Runtastic / Roadbike apps have this feature. You probably need to buy the PRO app, but no monthly fee is needed to use Routes with rotating map. BTW, the Runtastic PRO app is free for iOS now. (not the Road Bike app), but works the same.

  • This is the only feature Strava NEEDS to improve. When will it be done?

  • I'm seeing a general trend that Strava doesn't seem to care about improving basic features. Either that or they are way over their head and can't. Not looking good for them. I'm cancelling my Strava premium this app is becoming an outdated dinosaur.
