Option to view DISTANCE REMAINING instead or as well as distance cycled.
A non-brainer!

So there you have it … to get a feature done takes 5 years and everyone has to have completely forgotten about it and the request archived . :rofl:

Looks like were getting this in the next update!

It’s been around for atleast 2/3 years and there are weekly rides with no HUD… having the choice each ride is a good step but it’s not a new feature and let’s not pretend it is.

It’s a low hanging fruit they could have picked off years ago…

The link doesn’t work any more, but I asked for it in 2015. :smiley:

Maybe they will only be rolling it out to the same select users who get all the other extra features we dont.

I had no idea the bar at the bottom of the ZC window was called the “Action Bar”. In most cases this is a complete misnomer. It should be “Inaction Bar” with the limited functionality of most of the buttons…

Now, there there. No need to dig into history for sour memories. After all, what’s 4 years between subscriber and supplier? :man_shrugging: :sweat_smile:

Another example of a 3rd party having to step in where Zwift falls short of providing pretty basic stuff… ZAM looks cool, I’ll probably give it a try!

When would that ever not be the case . All the most successful products support user created content . The best people to improve a product are the consumers of it . I think the message to Zwift should not be "why didnt you do it " it should be Why are you not making your product more open to much more third party developers to build capabilty …

I just want to make certain components bigger because I can’t see the metrics properly on mobile. This is a very simple feature that any app has…

Customizable HUD would be nice. For example I’d like to see the gears on the HUD.

I would love to see HUD customisation, especially so you could turn on and off the values you like to see. Like I ride with a heart rate monitor to get the results officially in races or to analyse them after a race or workout, but I don’t like to see my heart rate during the ride. Now I’ve made a paper template to hang in front of my screen, but that is not the nicest option (and besides: in a workout you can’t turn off the graph at the bottom). :slight_smile:

Too bad it’s still not possible. The window is full of cr*p that riders doesn’t need. When I’m cycling I’m only interested in the watts and maybe the heart rate, the rest is irrelevant.

When I train, I want to see watts/pulse in the center of the window, but not everything else.

Etc. why is this still not possible today? What use are new maps if those who use the software as a training tool are dependent on third-party software?

I mean with a decent HUD, more players will automatically come back to zwift. that’s potential money somewhere. every GPS device nowadays can change the data field. PEOPLE make the hud optional…

hopefully there will be a hud overhaul in the near future… it’s been YEARS again.

Hi - as much as I sometimes like riding without the HUD, what I would much prefer is to have certain elements visible, and some hidden. I don’t want to see Zwifters Nearby or the Live Results, but would still like to see my power/speed data, and most importantly the elevation map. Instead of the button being a toggle on/off, it could be a cycle-through implementation like the camera views: Full HUD, Minimal HUD, no HUD. Mock-ups attached. Thanks!!

The funny part is your Minimal overlay Top right is about the same as original Zwift.

Well… my 2nd example (which would be my preference) only displays the elevation, and even though that part of the overlay is there, it still removes visual “clutter”. If the way the HUD is organized that each section is an individual module, then removing the Riders Nearby and the Live Results would be a compromise. Removing those 2 overlays opens up a lot of screen space.

I would actually prefer that in my 2nd example overlays be smaller (good for TV, not good for smaller screens), but I am not going to presume to ask them to redesign the entire UI.
