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.

  • 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...

  • My Premium renewal is coming up and I'm not going to renew until this is fixed. I can't believe it is still unresolved.

  • 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!

  • I'm just going to have to pile on here. I live and ride around Washington, DC where some good route planning and navigation are really helpful. However, if the map does not orient to the direction of travel then it is not helpful. In fact, it is a little dangerous because your mind is trying to interpret the map and this results in distracted riding.

    Essentially, Strava has until my Premium account expires to fix this issue or I'm either going back to basic user or I'll be someone else's premium user.

    Also, it's been over two years that users have been asking for this. Can we get a little transparency on what the hold up is?

  • This would be a truly useful enhancement.  Most if not all other nav products have this functionality, and this would increase Strava's appeal.

  • So, what's happening? It's been weeks, months and years. The navigation is useless without the map navigates the direction you are facing. Are you seriously not seeing this? 

    Your product is awesome. But resting on this moment now will make you lose. So do something, especially things that customers need/demand.

  • Guys, this should be simple, at least it is obvious! We from premium strava need that!

  • I've spend hours looking how to enable this feature in the ios app. I could not even imagine is does not exist !

    Everybody needs this.

    What are you waiting for, Strava ?

  • Only just started cycling and used strava for a route to a friends house. Great took to set the route up. I've used mapmyrun before for routes and expected it to work the same. Nope. Because I couldn't move the map while riding I lost my way and ended up going 5 miles out of my way. Needs orientation, centre of screen. Currently not as good as map my run- I will probably swap back

  • Couldn't agree more - absolutely needed feature. Route planning and importing of GPX data is THE thing. But why there is no auto map orientation is to be questioned. It's a major thing that is lacking here. I do not want to use komoot all the time for trail navigation with Strava running invisibly in the background. That is not how it was meant to be and certainly a reason for questioning why I should continue using Strava premium live tracking it if I do not see it on a ride because I have to have another app opened while cycling

  • 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!!

  • Google My Maps does not provide navigation for imported tracks.
    You can follow the route on the map if you have an internet connection during your ride but there would not be navigation guidance.
    You may want to search for a dedicated app that may have that functionality.

  • Odd how strava are quick to shut down the multiple threads on this topic but not so quick in actually providing any sort of update..... 

     

    Simple feature, really should be part of base map function - any idea when this will be added or should we all simply go else where...

  • Please add this feature.  It's the one thing that forces me onto other apps.

  • Just speculating, but I wonder if the lack of urgency is related to the Strava-Garmin relationship. Seeing how smartphones really put a damper on car GPS device sales, the same thing is a threat to bike GPS devices. If the Strava app had decent navigation, I probably wouldn't have been in a hurry to get a Garmin Edge unit. So, I'd bet Garmin is happy to keep Strava compatible, but not comparable.

  • Guys, I am following this thread since exactly 1 year and still waiting for this feature to be implemented. In fact, this is the only reason I am not paying for premium as I have to pay for "Ride with GPS" to have this feature.

    I suggest, we bomb this thread to the top by posting follow-ups. Ask your friends to do the same.

    Cheers

  • I am also using Strava for 1 week now and was confused there was no option to navigate properly.

    Currently I am free premium but can not imagine signing in afterwards without this feature.

    Best

  • Hi Strava - what's the update on this lack of feature. Navigation on the mobile would be so useful in unfamiliar places. Heads up view, real time tracking and turn instructions. Google can do it - why can't you? thanks David.

  • Been using Strava for just over a month, without this feature I just can't see that I'd continue to use or recommend it. Its just such a basic feature that other navigation apps do. Such a simple fix letting done on what it otherwise a good app. Basics first guys then your features can shine....

  • 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.
