Strava POIs – Live Now

If you check the web version of Strava or update your smartphone version (> v233.0) then you should find that POIs are up and running. Not a subscriber? No problems, it still works for you when viewing maps, although route creation is a subscriber-only tool.

Where Can I find it?

The POI tool is a part of the maps toolset and you can access it on the MAPS tab of your STRAVA smartphone app or in the ROUTES section of Strava.com

 

How Useful is it?

I’ve not yet used this new feature much other than a quick play today. Strava says that have used the Open Street Map (OSM) database to pull together POIs that are suited for the sport you are undertaking in scenarios like these

But

Take Out

A useful start from Strava. It will help non-subscribers only when viewing maps and following routes that others have created.

I suppose a cliched one-liner is “could be nice when it’s finished” but that’s perhaps a little unfair so I won’t say it.
