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.

  • My guess is because Strava and Garmin have a business relationship, Strava is not going to fix the map orientation in their navigation. I've accepted this and am still a happy Strava customer because of the multitude of other great app and website features. My Garmin Edge does far more than the Strava app on my phone can do anyway and with better battery life.

  • Can we get an update on this new feature reuest and where it is in the backlog please?  I have the paid for the premium package because of the beacon which works fairly well but I'm regretting the purchase now looking at how long this simple request has been outstanding.

  • Ridiculous that this feature still doesn’t exist! Another feature that people actual want put to the bottom of the pile. Stop developing pointless social features and development the functionality.

  • Fairly new Strava user. On my MTB drive today in the wood I used a route that i added earlier today. I was surprised while driving that the map wasn't oriented in driving direction and though : oh well, probably just a setting, I'll check it tonight. When checking I found this forum and I'm even more surprised now. This really should be a day-1 feature...

  • Dear Jess - this post and request must have been created about 4 years ago. It has been repeatedly requested by all on this thread. You can see how many responses there have been and when it was first proposed. Don't tell us now to go and put it into another bucket. Strava have been ignoring this for years. As a result, your customers are going elsewhere and using an App that can do trackup orientation and move with the user.

  • @Jess, could you please at least give us the actual reason for not developing that feature?

  • Gyus, it's a waste of time. I might be wrong, but I am pretty sure that it's because they made a deal with Garmin. Strava does not implement rotating maps which makes it impossible (even dangerous) to use it for navigation, but guess who has navigation devices for cyclists? Right, it's Garmin.

    Ever wondered why STRAVA Live Segments provide better functionality on Garmin devices comparing to other GPS devices e.g. Lezyne, Polar etc. including the own STRAVA app?!? Well, just think about it.

    They could implement rotating maps tomorrow as it is a basic map functionality, they just need to enable it. The only reason, I can imagine, preventing this is a legally binding agreement with an other party - Garmin.

    @Jess, can you please confirm or correct me if I am wrong?

    Have a safe ride all!

  • I hope they will do it soon. I use numerous maps before and all had this as standard future. I was so surprised that Strava did not offer this option.

  • It’s a feature that isn’t difficult to implement. I think that’s Strava option not to, for some reason that I don’t understand.

    Please consider this request. Or you aren’t capable of?

    Thanks

  • I wanted this in 2016. It is still not there, so I will need to use Trailforks for the map, and run Strava in the background to capture my heart rate data and wheel sensor, as TrailForks doesn't do those things. Sad I have to run two apps.

  • Anyone see the new feature?? Now you can sort your feed by "chronological" order. Like... Uh... How was it sorted before? And if I 'miss a friend's activity' because of having tooI many events come through the feed, well, that's the busy world we live in isn't it? I think everyone still following this thread should start a new feature request with this same title and link back to this one to gain a bunch of visibility.

    Has anyone confirmed that the orientation feature works in paid app usage, or is it a flaw in both modes?

  • Tried Summit free trial with routes . Great feature but without map rotating to direction of travel it is too dangerous to use for navigation. Have cancelled subscription but may well return if and when implemented.

  • Please switch to point to driving direction. Its so dangerous when riding and having to keep looking down and figuring out where the next turn is going to be with traffic passing by. Also how to I enable audio so that it tells me when the next turn is etc...

  • OK - now that you have made the promise that a subscription will fund improvements this has to be a test case to show your willingness to deliver on what the community is asking for. Please make this happen - it will really improve the rides and show us that you do care for your customer base and not just for revenue.

  • Ok so it's 2020 and I'm reading all these comments from YEARS ago asking for this feature. So glad STRAVA gave me the first two months free. As soon as I found out that the map will not orientate to the direction of travel I cancelled my premium membership. MapMyRide works great.

  • Yea but now we get local legends. Let's focus on the most important features guys and girls. Think of all the non subscribers who don't even get leaderboards 😂

  • 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.

  • This is needed. I turned the wrong direction because of this (my fault I guess)...

  • It's apparent that Strava don't actually care about what a large number of their customers would like, looks like an excellent & time-tested way of losing them. I'm heading off too, gonna stick with the Garmin.

  • This is also a function in my humble opinion that an app like this should not be without. I find it basically impossible to follow direction when riding on a pre-planned route. Please Strava add this to make this a truly "complete" app.

  • This is such a shame. I have used various applications for capturing fitness workout and was starting to fix on using Strava (getting ready to pay for Premium). But having a basic feature like heads up display not available, and ignoring the community of users - leads me to think that they do not value their customers / community / supporters. 

    Like others, I find it confusing when cycling to mentally transpose left and right when following a route the wrong way on my phone.

    Will be looking to go back to another app.

  • It's crazy that you expect people cycling in traffic to have to stare at the screen trying to work out if the next turn is a left or right..

  • [UP]

    How is this taking 4 years to be done?

    I developed iOS apps before and changing the map to be oriented with the heading is probably 5 lines of code.

  • Hey,

    as far as I know it does not work with premium on STRAVA. I moved to RideWithGPS for navigation and using STRAVA as a community page only to connect with friends.

    Really disappointing.
