Thank you for adding the Map Mode. I find it very useful to train for the elevation profile for some hilly marathons, such as Boston and Big Sur.
I have a couple of questions and suggestions:
1. Questions: How can I make a GPS track I upload public, so that it can be used by others? Do I need to check any legal fine print of races, such as the Boston Marathon, before I can make the track public? Some marathons have an issue with the use of video recordings for commercial purposes, so I want to be sure there is no such issue with the GPS track.
a. Would be great if you can allow for a run or ride to start from a particular point on the track, say Km 19.3. This would allow for one to train for specific parts of the course, or to cover the entire course over a number of training sessions.
b. The display and the font sizes are well designed. You are displaying the current section, indicating the gradient and the remaining distance, which is very useful. It will be great if you can also add the gradient (or incline/resistance) for the next section also, so that one can be prepared for the change.
I have found the Map Mode most useful in my training program. I have various tracks I have prepared that I would like to ride, plus their are some upcoming organized events that I need to train on ahead of time. However I have also found some surprises that need to be ironed out that would enhance the Map Mode's usefulness.
I have brought this experience to Kinomap's attention and am waiting for their response.
Why isn't there a filter for rowing?
