Feedback for the Route Builder

Love the new Route Builder feature in Strava Premium. I have only had a quick play on an iPad so far but have a couple of comments. To define a starting location it appears you need to type in an address. It would be great if there was a "use current location" option that drops the pin where you are standing. Keep up the good work guys! Tim

    re :"I can't seem to plot a route along certain roads I have had no trouble with plotting before"

    They've broken it. Probably something to do with Openstreetmap which it's now using. I was having exactly the same problem with it refusing to plot two points 100 yards apart without going on a 2 mile detour!  I've given up and gone back to RideWithGPS

  • Mouse wheel zoom does not work at the moment. I really hope it's just temporary as it's a pain to use the buttons.

  • I can't seem to plot a route along certain roads I have had no trouble with plotting before. Even if I drag the plot line to the road I wish to ride it loops back on itself creating a much longer route, sometimes quite a large detour. Why is this when I had no problem with the same routing before?

  • Also if you have route that back tracks over existing route it doesn't work

  • I created a dummy route to play with the new feature and I can't delete it, I can't believe Strava hasn't developed a Delete Route option.... please add it, I don't want rubbish routes cluttering up !

  • I find the Route Builder very poor after using ridewithgps which is excellent! This beta is virtually unusable 

    I am a roads only cyclist - but it won't accurately follow roads! I can't move a track it has plotted inaccurately onto the road. Changing an existing route fails: you can't add waypoints without the route doubling back, or delete waypoints either. I can't move the start point. The map view is just Google - but we need Open Street Map too: Strava need to support this excellent project (as ridewithgps do) - for example it shows tracks differentiated from roads - which Google maps fails to do properly. I need to be able to edit cues (like you can in ridewithgps) to correct errors and produce my own custom ones in the right places (you can with ridewithgps).

    Basically - when producing this Beta didn't you look at the competition? Surely you studied ridewithgps to make yours at least as good?

    This Route Builder has no visible version number - how will we know when/if it is updated?

    Finally - and crucially - I am interested to see if any of Strava's developers look at this forum and respond!

  • The new Route Builder looks like it will be a great tool. A few observations on the negative side, but know that most of the experience was on the positive side:

    - It seemed like when I was looking at segments, I couldn't click on the map to draw my route. When I minimized the Settings (left side), I was able to build my route.

    - It seemed like when I clicked on a marker on the cue sheet, it wouldn't take me to that location on the map, and correspondingly it seemed like I couldn't edit it. This is a huge need; I use this all the time with RWGPS. 

    - I love the idea of being able to leverage Strava segments and/or what Strava users have uploaded, so I can get a sense of popular routes. I was picturing a heat map or color-coded overlay or something, but I didn't see what the popular segments was going. Maybe behind the scenes it was picking the most likely route I'd want to take. I'd like to explicitly see popular routes. Similarly on the segments when I'm building a route, it would be helpful to see "Ridden X times by Y people"

    Thanks!

  • I have a feeling that once Strava gets this right, it'll be better than other tools out there. However, I think it needs some serious work before going out of beta. I tried creating a second route today, and made some additional notes (in addition to what's above), and at this point it shows huge promise but can't really be used.

    - Google Street View is essential but not available in Route Builder.

    - The printed cue sheet is not customizable (e.g., can't show miles to next turn)

    - I don't seem to be able to add to the cue sheet (e.g., food here, bathrooms here)

    - I don't seem to be able to edit text in the cue sheet (e.g., CAUTION, easy to miss, unsigned, etc. - other directions that are more helpful than the automated text)

    - I don't seem to be able to click along a road to show the Route Builder where I want the route to go, without creating a waypoint... by which I really mean without creating a cue sheet entry. I end up with a mess of a cue sheet with instructions to "proceed onto" the street that you're already on. If you delete the waypoint, the route gets messed up.

    - Finally, I had built about 50 miles of a route, then I guess maybe I clicked somewhere and... it lost everything after mile 16. Multiple undo/redo attempts did not resolve this.

    Hopefully this thread will be updated when there is a newer, better build, but until then I'll stick with non-Strava tools for this.

  • Is there going to be an option to save a ride you just completed as a route?  I try to ride new roads all the time to keep things fresh, and would love to be able to save my favorites as a route, instead of going back into the original ride.  This way you can also print out queue sheets for others who want to check out the ride.

  • 1) If I wanted to share my newly created routes I'd click the share button, I DON"T want them to be shared in the feed by default & not be able to stop it happening. If you want to promote your routes feature, do it another way that doesn't infringe on everybody's privacy!

    2) It would also be nice if you could duplicate an existing route. It would come in very handy when your new route contains a large section of an old route, a quick edit & your done.

    3) Sort #1 out ASAP!

  • Please don't share routes by default. If we want to share them then give us an option to do this. Good job I didn't name my route "Calling in with the mistress on my way home from work"! :)

  • I've just realised that routes get shared by default. Some of mine start from my house. Thus worringly affecting my privacy/security. Please make sharing an option.

  • I would have to join the choir here, its a nice app once you get used to the bugs, but would really like to be able to set my routes to private. when I'm planning future routes and working out pros and cons of what I want from my travels I don't want my plans broadcast to everyone I know  :(  Also to open a route, modify then save as a new name should create a new route not overwrite the old route and change the name

  • Sharing created routes by default is not cool. 

    A lot of times I want to play around and plan routes for a TT league but now everyone knows what I'm planning.

    seriously considering cancelling Premium and going to mapmyride.

  • As above from last couple of posters. Sharing as an option please. If planning routes I don't want everyone to see them before the day. May have to plan elsewhere if this can't be implemented....

  • I think it would be helpful to have the option to show distance markers when viewing a route map. Currently, the only way I've been able to view distance markers on a map of a route has been in Route Builder when I am editing a route.

  • Hello.

    I have been using the route builder for a while and I am an Open Street Map contributor. Whenever the Strava route builder does not route over my trail, I to go OSM and create it. The following day, I can already see my change at the Strava Terrain OSM, like shown in the attached picture "Terrain OSM.png", but when I enter the route builder and select the OSM layer view, the new trails are still not there. You have the capture "Builder OSM.png" at the same point as the previous capture. A complete month has passed and, because the OSM updates are not in the route builder layer, I still cannot plan routes over these trails.

    I think I have read somewhere that the route builder map layers update is once every three months. Don't you think it is too long? If we can reduce it to one day, then many people will update OSM just to make the route builder usable for themselves, as I am doing, and these maps will get improved very fast.

    What do you think about this?

    Best regards.

  • Route builder is driving me crazy! Recently it has become ridiculously buggy and it is not allowing me to edit existing routes or edit routes created from activities.

    The issue is that if you want to drag or reposition a waypoint it just doesnt respond. Sometimes it places a waypoint in the middle of nowhere and doesnt adjust the route to meet the waypoint. It is now often not even allowing you to delete a waypoint on routes and effectively the editing just crashes.

    Real pity as would love to have my routes all in one place but Strava you need to properly support this app and get it out of Beta or just give up.

  • It would be a great help to have distance markers on the Activity Maps.Thanks,

  • A couple people have mentioned this already, but for the love of God, why on earth are there not mile (or km) markers on the map once a route is created? This basically makes routes completely useless for sharing. My running club has gone back to using MapMyRun and Gmaps Pedometer for posting the routes for our group runs. (To any other frustrated Strava users out there - Gmaps Pedometer is my all time favorite and is amazing. It's approximately 1,000 times more intuitive to use than Strava Route Builder.)

  • Hi Michael, I am having the same issue, but for me if I use the search field (top left just above the now grey empty box where the map should be) then that solves it. You need to fill in something else though than what is there by default, give it a try.

  • At the moment i find 'est moving time' slightly unhelpful. It would be much better if you could control the speed at which you are planning to run the route you've planned, this way you could work out how long it would take to run a route if you hit your splits? 

    Do you think this would be possible?

  • It seems that any recent updates are no longer working for the Manual Mode.  I try to build a route and the line does not go all the way to where I want it to go.  When I try to add the needed distance I get an error message asking to replot, which I continually do.

    Why was the program changed?

  • Click and it will drop the start waypoint where you click. The beta in my area is only putting the waypoints on roads. I have tried three local trails I ride and the waypoints keeps jumping to a road close by so looks like the beta in it's current form is not suitable in my area for mountain biking/running unless you are doing it on the road. Even a stopbank road along one of our local rivers is not recognized and will not allow waypoints dropped on it, it shifts it to another road close by. Hope they allow a feature so the waypoints can be dropped anywhere to create your route for us mountain bikers

  • Derek, I know you can click and drop, but that kinda assumes you know where you are, if you are visiting an area, it would be nice to just be able to drop it at current position. When I open a new route, the map just shows half of our state. Just a nice to have feature in user friendliness.

  • If you a visiting an area you can type in the road/street and town.  When I open Route Builder it shows my town, mouse wheel easily zooms in or out the view. I type in street number, street, town click search and the route builder map will go to that position. i can then click anywhere on the street for the 1st waypoint to start planning my route. I can then type in the destination street address, even a different town, click search and the map will go to that position, I click for and get the 2nd waypoint, Route Builder then creates a route to the waypoint 2. Works on known roads and cycle/running paths but not on the trails and some unpaved roads I ride.

  • The Route builder uses the location on you profile setting as does Strava Explore (segment explore, segment search, Activity search, Club). to change to your current position you can change the location on your profile settings

  • I saw Tim's question above, but no answer. How to delete a route that you have created? I just created a test one, works fine so far. But I dont see a delete option anywhere.

  • Just tried building a route on a cycle/walking path that is recognized by Route Builder and showing on the route builder map as a green line. Little River 20km Rail Trail, Canterbury, New Zealand, I am able to get around half the route mapped until the path is right next to a road then no matter what I try the route keeps jumping the waypoint over to the road, the builder then back tracks the route back down the trail around 2km  jumps over to the road, along the road to the waypoint it has just moved to the road. Would be good if a feature was added to follow/unfollow roads when adding waypoints. This would allow a fix for this and also allow creating routes of trails/paths and unpaved roads not recognized by the Route Builder
