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.

  • 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'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..

    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.

  • Just a shame that such a wonderfull app is not able to create a route map which will orientate the map in the direction you're moving. It is too dangerous when cycling while navigating using this map function of Strava...

    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 helpfull.

    Ps. don’t bother buying premium, still doesn’t work there...

    I have to export my gpx files to a different app (bikeGPX works wonderfull btw). Just to make use of such a simple feature.

    Shame on you Strava. Because this has been requested for many many years (first request was from 2014🙁). You should monitor your own forums and listen to your OWN users. If you don’t listen to them, why even bother keeping up a forum...

    Hope you bother reading this.

  • If I‘d had known about this problem beforehand I wouldn’t have bought the premium version, Runtastic has it in all of its App‘s Komoot has it, TomTom, Garmin etc. all have it as Standard and yet Strava can’t even be bothered to answer a question on the issue in its own support forum? You should be ashamed! I for one will not be renewing if this problem is not solved!

  • This map rotation function is necessary when driving in unfamiliar terrain while using the route saved in the Strava. Please Strava make it possible!!

  • Hi Jess,

    Thanks for this official Strava comment: “Our forums are just one component of our decision-making process. While a ton of ideas are genuinely valuable, we need to be selective and balance our priorities. Thanks for understanding!“

    What you probably mean: while a ton of ideas are genuinely valuable we only implement those ideas which our users are probably going to pay extra for. This way we can make even more money out of this app. Thanks for paying for all these useless “social” features.

  • Just got this from Jess at Strava: Our New Feature Ideas thread in the Community Forums is a place for athlete suggestions to improve Strava. We love big and small ideas. If you like someone else’s recommendation, vote on it or provide a comment of your own.

    One thing to remember: just because something's popular doesn't mean it'll be implemented. Our forums are just one component of our decision-making process. While a ton of ideas are genuinely valuable, we need to be selective and balance our priorities.

    Thanks for understanding!

    I do not understand! A feature that every other App that is similar to Strava has, even in free versions! A feature that is also safety orientated, a feature that Users want and need, a feature that was asked sbout over 2 years ago and didn’t even rate an answer, that above is no answer it’s just a regurgitated standard answer that comes with the company’s computer.

    Because they need to be selectieve and balance their priorities, what a joke.

    I use this app for navigation: BikeGPX. Easy to upload gpx files and simple to use. Because they probably do care about a good user experience...

  • @Jess
    Please understand that we are not asking you to implement everything. We are asking you to prioritise a simple but important safety feature available in almost every other competitor app requested over 4 years ago as you can see via this thread.

    Please listen to your user base and not the £££ related to useless social media functionality...

  • I'm pretty sure, that Strava don't care about basics - this tread started 5 years ago. They care more about summits because it is a money.

  • 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.

  • 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.
