Better route and loop overview


(lasse karsholt) #1

So failry new to Zwift done a few rides now, and 2 things that could really improve  experience (especially for new people).

The 2 route views in top right are not always that much of an overview, i would love to see a small kinda “minimap”, so i would know which way to go on a given course (Wattopia) to for example get to the big mountain. 

 

Second: Laps! There is an achivement to do a lap. I have now figured out where a lap starts, but i’m not sure if i can start a lap CCW and Clock wise? Also yesterday i apparently started the Hilly course. But i was not sure which way to go on the route. Maybe list the lap you are curretnly doing above the “turn signs” when you get to an intersection? 
Also i dont understand why it does not always show how much more you need of a lap, up the hill on london course i can follow the progression all the way from 4,2km to 0 while on other courses it does not pop up untill 500 meters to go.

I love the minimap idea. And to further this idea it should show where your friends are on the minimap.

With the amount of detail and size of these maps I don’t think you would be able to see anything. 

There is very nice maps online that you can download, print and stick them to your wall. Or get a second monitor and display them there.

you would totally be able to see things on the map, every single racing video game has a minimap on some part of the screen which shows a portion or all of the track. Zwift already shows an elevation profile of the track you are riding which shows up to 9km (in some cases)

IMHO, a course overview has more value than the elevation mapping being displayed.

Agree a mini map a great idea to see where you are on the route

For now You can try https://zwifthacks.com/zwiftmap-macos-and-windows/ to show a map overlay or a map on you second monitor.

Zwift is working on there own Map…constantly improving. see Tyler’s post above.

Hi!

 

While an in game map is not possible, it’s coming!

Additionally, if select a course, you don’t need to select any turns. It will take you the entire route without you having to change anything.
