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.

  • 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'm glad I found this thread. Having become a bit lost in France this week on a long ride, for me, I initially couldn't figure out exactly where I was until I realised that the map was upside down. I resorted to Google maps to put me right.

    Now, here I am having been considering the upgrade to Summit today but this map issue has put me right off.

    I will probably simply run Strava in the background from now on. Shame on the developers!!!

  • The lack of this, and the recent withdrawal of support for Relive, have made me and a number of my fellow peddalers turn to other solutions for a biking app.

    Sorry Strava, you were great but you’ve lost it.
    If you snooze, you lose.

  • Hello Strava Team,

    I am a summit Member, I left the Runtastic app to come to Strava and I am very sad about this functionality is not in Strava app.

    I think it is a nice system when you don't know the area where you ride. I am sure you will have more users with those functions, many persons hesitate to ride without a guiding.

    I don't know what is the tech is being in this function but could you study and give to us some road map?

  • Oke while waiting for Strava to get the basics right, can anyone recommend a good app to use while riding for navigation? I will still use Strava in the background but navigating with it is horrible, because of this very small feature. Please bump this up in your backlog, thanks :)

  • Hi Wouter, I was using RideWithGPS on my phone for couple of years. The navigation feature is not for free, but you won't find a better app out there. Now I am using a Garmin Edge device, but I am still with RideWithGPS to create routes with CUEs

  • Bonjour à tous,

    dans ma région, l'Hérault en France, il y a des traces dans tous les sens sur de courtes distances.

    les single se croisent tout le temps sur de petites surfaces.

    c'est presque impossible de suivre une trace car on n'est jamais sur d'être dans le sens du nord ou du sud.

    Tourner à gauche pour la droite suivant l'orientation...bref prise de tête!!!!

    l'assistance STRAVA m'a répondu qu'ils travaillaient dessus, sans trop s'investir.

    Bizarre, car la plupart des logiciels d'orientation par un téléphone ont cette possibilité

    Dommage, car de nos jours un téléphone pour s'orienter peut suffire, et ajoute en plus la possibilité d'ajouter des photos géo référencées et la sécurité en communiquant en temps réel de notre position.

    j'utilise STRAVA en club avec un groupe  d'abonnés fermés. C'est un peu pour nous le Facebook du sportif.

    on y met nos traces, nos photos et nos commentaires de la sortie ou résultats compétitions.

    En attente (impatiente) de cette évolution d'un logiciel qui nous convient.

    AL Vlm

  • I'm. Summit member at the moment, on the free trial. It doesn't work for me either. I'm really surprised by this because it sort of makes Strava a social media app. Maybe Strava is trying to be the Facebook of training, but that's not what I want. I want an app that's useful for training and tracking, so now I'm looking into whether Garmin or anyone else offers a better package. I susoe t I'll find that they do.

  • let’s face it - from all the comments i’ve read and for all the years it’s been requested there is only one conclusion.
    Strava don’t care have never cared and will NEVER be implementing turn by turn navigation.
    Frustrating i know because it’s a feature on just about everything else out there and given it’s Strava a hugely well known app beggars belief.
    it stops me from going premium and anybody who pays for it is helping to fund a group of people who given their zero response to this must just be sitting there laughing as yet another post about it appears.
    so stop asking for it! - ITS NEVER COMING

  • I don't think they know how to do it. We'll have to wait for someone from Google to defect to Strava. In the meantime, I'm discontinuing premium.

  • The fact they haven't done it when so many users have been asking for it for so long, and it sounds like a relatively easy feature to implement, makes me think there is some kind of commercial anti-compete tie-up with Garmin or something that is preventing them from doing it.  If this is the case they need to be transparent about it, particularly when the founders are making comments about putting the subscribers at the core of the business, clearly these are empty words.

  • Yes I think this feature is necessary for routes. I will also stop my subscription if its not added. But I don’t want to...really hope its not a Garmin - Strava agreement not to add this..

  • Please sort this Strava. It’s a great shame that it isn’t on the subscription level that I just paid for. Strava is so good otherwise.

  • 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
