I wrote about this to StephenB and he asked me to post it on the forum to see who else wants this feature, so…here’s hoping :)

Add trip mapping integration like on MapMyRun. This would be very useful for runners and walkers, if they (we) run in a park and don’t know the distance in advance.

For example, I don’t have a pedometer because I don’t like to carry stuff with me when I run, so being able to map out my run and have it consider the area elevations as well as the distance I ran would be absolutely awesome! I think that every single walker and runner will be grateful for this feature.

It takes into account your weight, area elevations, time spent, distance, and extra weights if you use any, so it makes calories burnt a lot more accurate.

This is obviously something that’ll take a lot of time and resources to build, so there has to be a substantial amount of requests. So, if you want this, make yourself heard!

Thanks for posting it here! I hope some other people give their feedback.

Just for the record, I think this would be a really great feature on Gyminee.

This was an old thread – but the mapping ability is a feature I absolutely would love to see integrated into DailyBurn. There are a few things from the other fitness sites which I really appreciated, and would be a very nice feature if they could be incorporated into this site as well. However – the BIG one for me was the ability to MAP your workout using Google Maps which provided total distance and ability to edit route description – ie. hard run on pavement with hills; or great mountain bike trail; or excellent canoe portage route! It also allows you to have several saved favourite routes mapped out – made it easy to keep track and record comparison times versus distance. If you are into running, hiking, even kayaking – this is an extremely handy feature to have … and remember that the sport of running, particularly cross country running, is an increasing demographic and has a rapid growth forecast over the next ten years. An excellent alternative is the Nike+ iPod feature integration or something similar…
