Google’s pushpins (the balloon icons) are nice and so but we got a bit tired of them. So they’ve been replaced with something better: the map is now featuring icons indicating the type of activity and a colored circle (green, blue or red) that tells you whether the trip is public, yours or pivate. Some examples:
a mountain bike trip created by you
a private (i.e. not readable by the public) run
Now when you’re not zoomed in very much and you’re in area that has a lot of trips, things are starting to look very busy and messy (this was of course also true with the old pushpins) – we’re aware that this is a problem and that this will get worse so we’re working on a method to groups trips together when they’re in close proximity at a given zoom level on the map.
You may also notice another tab on this blog: ‘Known issues’ – here we’d like to keep you up to date with some known bugs or issues we’re aware of and/or are currently working on.
