ZwiftGPS updated with Strava live and world chooser

The ZwiftGPS app has been updated with two important new features accessible from the menu at the top-left.

Connect to Strava

Once connected, it will display your PR from Strava as you attempt a segment, including live updates showing how far ahead or behind your PR you are. This is based on the actual effort stream from Strava (not just the overall time), so it’s pretty accurate – to within a second or two in our tests.

By default it includes all the “Zwift Insider verified” segments. You can also star segments in Strava to include them.

You should see a box drop down from the top of the screen when you enter a segment, showing the segment name and how far ahead/behind you are. You’ll also get an orange highlight of the PR’s progress, and for non-loop segments the route is highlighted as well.

Note: this feature struggles a bit with segments that double back on themselves (e.g. the sprint area of the London map) but we’re working on it.

Change World

This lets you manually select which world to display (Watopia / London / Richmond). Great when you and your friends are using the world tag hack to ride “off-schedule.”

Hello, this is fabulous! I’ve been looking for something in Zwift to replicate starred segments and the real time feedback I get outdoors when riding a segment with my Garmin 820 (which imports starred segments from Strava and shows how much ahead/behind a past performance or the next closest rider on the leaderboard.) I tried this on my MacBook though and it didn’t seem to work. I’ve made the security settings changes including sudo the network devs, and also linked to my Strava and ZwiftGPS accounts. Is this feature still working? Thanks for your efforts to make Zwift more fun… Read more »
