Introducing Map My Tracks Photos

Return to latest news

Sometimes the data from your ride, or run, just does not tell the full story which is why we are thrilled to announce the launch of Map My Tracks Photos.

Along with every activity you can now upload any number of photos to help tell the full story. Photos are great way to vividly share your view down the valley, the foul weather that you experienced, or the buddies that you were out with.

Photos appear alongside activities and can be viewed in full screen mode. As you might expect they also appear on your activity map when the photo has location data. There is no limit on the amount of photos you can add to an activity. Captions can also help to tell your followers even more, and if you mention other Map My Tracks users in your captions they’ll get notified.

You can get started today by uploading photos to individual activities. It’s super simple to upload photos in bulk on any activity but it’s also just as easy to upload images by email using your Map My Tracks dropbox email address. When you email in photos as attachments they will be scanned for a time stamp and assigned to the correct activity. It’s a great way to get started and back fill your activities with photos taken in the past.

There’s more on how to get started with uploading photos in the support centre. You can check out this activity to see photos in action.

We can’t wait to see where you venture outdoors.
