Personal Heatmaps on the app + our latest Stat Map

We’re always excited when not one, but two features come out at once. Today’s one of those days.

Personal Heatmaps have been around on the web for a while now, but we’ve just added them to the app! Head to the Maps tab and tap on the Map Layers icon to see yours. You can toggle back and forth between that one and the Global Heatmap for a quick look at where you might not have ventured out yet. There’s nothing like watching that heat grow as you traverse new ground – and the Strava community can always help you find your next spot.

Second, tap into your most recent activity and try changing your map type. You’ll notice a brand new Personalized Stat Map that visually breaks down the terrain you cover – so now you (and your followers) can easily see what parts of your activity were paved vs. dirt (and harder vs. easier). This should help paint a fuller picture of your multi-surface activities, and bring your followers along at a quick glance.

Both of these new features are only available to subscribers, so if you haven’t subscribed yet, here’s your cue. To learn more about other recent updates, take a look at our ‘What’s New?’ page:
