Strava Adds 3D Maps to Its Mobile App

Strava has announced the latest addition to its mobile app, giving subscribers access to three-dimensional maps for both iOS and Android platforms. 

Combined with Strava’s recent ‘Points of Interest’ feature announcement, athletes will now be able to visualise topography more easily to establish their location and plan their routes and breaks.

“This update will allow our athletes to confidently plan adventures and hit trails with ease, visualize the difficulty of different journeys, and make informed decisions on the go,” says Strava

With the maps showing topography and elevation to scale, athletes can seek out challenging inclines or a more relaxed route home.

Though seen as being useful for all athletes, performance athletes can seek out elevation challenges and tailor outdoor training programmes to suit their goals (e.g. climb training and VO2 Max efforts).

Additionally, the company also points out how its latest product signifies the next step in making Strava an ideal workout partner for trail sports athletes, who can hit unfamiliar trails knowing what they’re in for and how they get home.

For subscribers, the feature can be found on the mobile app by going to the Routes or Record tab, or by clicking into any activity map.

  • Web + mobile (iOS + Android)
  • App version #233 or higher
  • For subscribers
  • Accessing feature: Mobile > Maps tab (standard layer – on the route recommendations tab, ‘long press’ (tap and hold) on a start point, adjust the recommendations to start/end at that point.)
