  • Hi,

    Garmin Connect supports naming of waypoints which is really useful to show for example coffee stops on a route. In strava we can add waypoints but cannot name them and they don't use the "wpt" tag in the file. Can we please enhance the recently added points of interest feature, allowing them to be referenced as named waypoints in the route file?

    Thanks

  • Hi, I am testing subscription benefits, mainly i wanted to try route builder.

    Shouldn't route builder snap to heatmap and segments?

    From my testing it behaves like any other free online route builder that uses osm maps and graphhopper route calculation.

    I think in the past there was some presentation of snapping to heatmap.

    Thanks.

    Igor.

  • Igor Martić thanks for reaching out. The route builder won't necessarily snap to the heatmap or segments, but they can be toggled to be visible while creating one. 

    If you are unable to route on a road or trail automatically, you have a couple of different ways to help resolve the issue:

    1. Try using manual mode
    Enable Manual mode to add a waypoint anywhere on the map. There are a few things to be aware of when using this mode:

    • Manual mode will no longer ensure your route's path follows roads or trails.
    • Popularity and elevation selectors will be disabled.
    • Distance and elevation can only be roughly estimated for manual edits.


    2. Help Improve Strava's Maps
    Strava utilizes OpenStreetMap, an open-source project of geographical data for the entire world, alongside our own heat/popularity and other unique data, to help inform routing decisions. If you are experiencing a routing error, you can help the Strava community by contributing the edit to OpenStreetMap.
    Feel free to visit our KB article for instructions for more information.

  • Doesn't creating a route on the website creator give you the option to choose "Follow most popular" or "Follow most direct"?  Wouldn't most popular be based on heat maps?  I don't see this option in the iOS app though.

  • How can I show a route that I have created in Strava's route creator in full screen mode after I have saved it and then opened it up on my PC

  • I would like to second the other posts asking for exporting of turn cues/turn-by-turn data when exporting routes as a GPX file.  This would allow me to A) stop printing cue sheets (bad for the environment), B) to ride without accessing my phone or requiring the Strava app to be open, C) to stop using third party competitor applications to import GPX files just for the sake of adding turn cues to them before re-exporting and syncing to my device.

    Since the data already seems to exist, this would be a major win for those of us that use devices that can provide turn-by-turn directions.  For me personally, my rides are generally longer than the the battery on my phone, whereas my Coros Apex will last for many days without a charge.

  • Another vote for turn-by-turn directions. Audio directions would be the most useful starting feature (since we do already have a route map, even if it doesn't give turn-based navigational assistance), and then visual directions could be useful for cycling.

    Why would I ever use Strava to make routes if I can't follow them with Strava? Right now I make and navigate my cycling routes using Komoot, and just use Strava to record because Strava is where my friends are. Would happily ditch Komoot and pay for Strava if navigation was included as a (premium) feature.

  • Brendan, I've been asking for just this for at least 5 years! I do exactly what you do: create route in Strava, export to Komoot, go ride. It's a real pain and my only real gripe about Strava.

  • Tony I’m actually doing the opposite, creating the route in Komoot, using it for navigation while riding, and just using Strava for recording the ride. I’m not going to pay a subscription to create routes in Strava when I’d just export them to another app for navigation. The Komoot route creator is good enough so I use that.

     But yeah, crazy that Strava hasn’t had what feels like a core feature for such a long time.

  • Can't edit/move a waypoint??

    OK, trying to move a waypoint to a different road. Well, not a waypoint per se, it's just a route, there are waypoints but not at this point. Anyway, i click and drag on the route, it updates to what I wanted/did, but then as soon as I release, it jumps back to what it was ... though now with a new waypoint where I grabbed it.

    Any ideas what's going on? This is on Safari/Mac, but is the same through other browsers.

  • All, there has to have been a route map update recently with a bug.  I try to build routes now and the builder almost 100% refuses to use a road instead of a sidewalk or greenway.  And this is supremely annoying.  I drag the waypoint back to the road and it just snaps right back over.  I make the distance between waypoints shorter, and when passing by an intersection on a road with a greenway the route builder forces the route onto the greenway.  This is with "shortest" enabled or "most popular", both have the issue.  This needs looked into now as this is the primary reason I pay for premium, route building capabilities.

  • For a while, I haven't been able to reliable add waypoints in an existing route by just clicking and dragging the route to another road.

    This doesn't seem to work in either mobile or the web.

    Am I missing something, is there a magic key combination I have to use when I want to drag an existing route?

    This used to work pretty good.

    My current workaround is to delete the complete route and then carefully add the waypoints one after the others with the knowledge that I won't be able to add more later.

  • More and more the route builder has been increasingly frustrating to use, now with the bug that prevents you from dragging a waypoint to the desired location/route.

    There's already a good list of unresolved issues that affect me day-to-day and more issues seem to get added regularly rather than seeing the list shorten.

    Strava, as a long time user and early adopter, I'm getting really fed up!
