I’ve just completed a ZA group ride and wanted to provide some feedback on the new patch, specifically the minimap.
First of all I have to say it worked well to keep the group together.
However there are definitely improvements to be made. The gradient graphics need enlarging, possibly moving to the left side of the screen with other metrics. On that note the metrics on the left hand side should be customizable fields much like you have with head units (do the same for the ZML).
Secondly the minimap has the potential to provide much more useful information. The sections that sprints (and KOMs) are timed in should be clearly marked (as in the start point added) or better yet shade the whole section of road in a different colour (i.e. green section for sprints and white/red for climbs).
For group rides (and races) it seemed like once another rider got beyond a certain distance from you they disappeared, this distance should be increased greatly. If you drop back for any reason you just can’t see the group on the minimap.
Another feature you could add to the minimap would be ghosts, you currently don’t have a way of measuring yourself against yourself (or others) during a lap to compete for orange jerseys or gain lap PBs.
