Would really like to be able to customise the HUD to choose what to show and what not to show and move the components around.
In a workout for example I don’t need to know who the other riders around me are, whereas for a group ride or race I do. It would be nice to be able to toggle it on or off or replace it with different information, for example a Pedal Stroke analysis graph for trainers that support it like the Tacx Neo or just free up some screen space for a better view of the world. Same for the mini map. On a workout I don’t care where on a course I am. In a race or group ride it’s much more useful.
Yes, please. I’d particularly like to be able to change/re-size/re-shape/make transparent/move the main HUD element in workout mode. This thing is like a giant billboard hanging in front of my face and blocking the view up the road.
I totally agree with you. I’m using a very expensive Plasma screen and I’m getting screen retention issues, using Zwift. I’ve resorted to using the minimal UI hack and my phone as a dashboard, but this has limitations and drawbacks and of course it’s not supported.
That massive box showing wattage etc. is smack bang in the prime viewing sport and obscures a riders view of the distance. It would make much more sense to have it bottom left of screen, and even better to given people preferences on different HUD views. This surely wouldn’t take much dev work to implement.
Would love to have this option to remove HUD. You can use companion to see stats. Recently bought dreamscreen to further enhance the zwift experience. The issue is that dreamscreen projects backlighting on wall that uses the colors of the outer edges of screen. So instead of projecting dark for rainy rides or orange for sunset rides, it always projects blue due to the HUD. Please give us the option to toggle HUD off.
For me, one of the main advantages of using Zwift is that I have interesting scenery to look at whilst cycling indoors and going nowhere. However the UI - especially when doing a workout - is positioned in a way that hides most of that scenery. In fact if you take a typical workout screen the vast majority of the screen that isn’t covered-up by “nearby riders”, “min-map”, “workout intervals” and the main numbers is just a patch of boring tarmac! I would personally prefer that the numbers are at the bottom of the screen so you can see more of the environment although I appreciate that this would be a big change. So ideally, you would introduce configuration options in the settings where you could choose:
1). Where to dock the numbers (top or bottom)
2). Whether to display the mini map
3). Whether to display nearby riders
