History ( Clock Icon )

A history of recent walks. Up to 50 walks are retained. Tapping an entry on this page brings up
the associated map. Walks will age off over time with the 50 newest walks being retained.

Map ( Earth Icon )

A map of the current walk or the most recent walk if no walk is active.
( enabled as soon as the first map coordinate is available )

Map menu supports the following views: Street, Map and Hybrid.

Map updates automatically as you walk.

The slowest 10 percent of the total distance walked is highlighted with an red/orange line. This identifies
places in the walk where pace has not been maintained.

Charts ( Chart Icon )

Charts are available as soon as you have two or more walks.

The charts will display bar graphs where each bar represents a walk.

Use the charts to check trends in pace and distance over time.

The gray line is the average pace.
