Different sports require different statistics, which is why we have added the ability for you to set your default map type and distance units for viewing tracks. Now you have the choice to set street, terrain or satellite maps as your standard view together with the option to view your tracks using imperial, metric or nautical distance units.
As before, these options can also be changed as you view a track so you can still adjust the way in which track data is presented should you decide that nautical miles don’t really apply when you have just completed a bike ride!
Understanding your performance is essential in any training regime. To help in that understanding we have today introduced split times and pace indicators on tracks.
Split time analysis and pace summaries provide some useful benchmarks for a lot of land-based sports activities like running and cycling. As with all of the distance data displayed we have made it possible to switch between kilometres, miles and nautical miles. Whatever suits your needs.
We’re keen to continue improving Map My Tracks to make sure that you have the right tools for your sport. Let us know what you like to see.
UPDATE: Split time markers have also been added along a track on a map.
