Bring Back Route Function
As per a recent correspondence w/ TPeaks Help Center, I understand the Routes function will not be available in the new product.
I'm all for upgrades & improving the product. With that, don't 'upgrade' by removing a function that I (& presumably, many others), have actively used for over a decade. PLEASE bring this back!
I'm a runner who has been with TP for 3 years. The removal of routes from the upgrade is a deal-breaker for me. Makes me wonder how many of the people making the decision about which features to migrate are runners as opposed to cyclists. The routes feature and part of your business model -- selling training plans to runners -- went hand-in-hand. When I bought training plans, I mapped out a bunch of courses for correlation to what the training plan called for (distance, hills, etc.). The library gave me the ability to efficiently adjust the courses based on what the plan was calling for that week (e.g., I could play around with an established long run route to see how I could add two miles). This was super convenient when I was traveling and had to map out a new route, and just generally great to have a bank of routes to draw from when I needed variety. Yes, I use a Garmin but routes allowed me to plan in advance and from a single platform. I'm perplexed that you market TP to runners who I would think would really love this feature, and yet your stats seem to show that low usage does not justify its inclusion on the upgrade. Nearly every serious runner that I know uses some type of online mapping resource. You've chopped it, so my feedback is pointless (except for venting). As for me -- I'm taking a "different route" with my online training and won't be recommending TP anymore to my work out and running buddies.
I absolutely love the routes feature. I use it to plan out sessions so I don't need to have my watch or Garmin with me.
Routes is not a feature that used by very many of our coaches or athletes, so it is on the chopping block. I am curious though to hear about how you use it and the value you see it.
