My whole workout history going back years and my map routes were on a site that became no longer available. Before access was gone, I transferred all my data to RunningAHEAD.com I've been using this site for years and I think it's user-friendly. It is a free website.

I am really mad they took this feature awa! I was unable to walk due to the Carr Fire until today! I am disabled and don't have a fit bit or smartphone or anything like that--when I went to track my route in my Fitness tracker, I found out the feature was gone!

PLEASE Bring it BACK!

I'm really hoping they bring it back or at the very least my saved maps.

Yes. And we could also find a different site for tracking food & weight loss while we're at it.

Not happy to find this feature has vanished, but I haven't used it in a couple of years. I wish I could at least look at my saved maps! I guess I'll go and figure out how to use Google maps for this.

Why oh why are sparks taking away items that motivate you to do more exercise. I've been trying to get a best time on a certain walk and now have no way of measuring it.

I too had several routes inbuilt.

Really bummed it's gone too. I had many routes I used on that. :( Hope SP can come up with something more useful for folks to use. What a bummer.

Very disappointing. Tech "team" should be expanding, there are now several issues you are falling behind on.

Not everybody has a smart phone, nor the ability to use apps like that, and the functionality of them leaves a lot to be desired.

It's so disappointing. Several years of saved maps, walks & notes just gone.

Hard to believe that coding couldn't be changed to work with the updates. Maybe the emphasis is on Facebook now.

What is a good free substitute now that Map My Walk is gone?

I had so many routes saved with that feature. I liked how it would track the miles you walked throughout the day/week.

I'm so sad about this. Even though the map has been showing errors for a while, it still worked with my 30 + saved routes. I'm really going to miss those. One of my favorite things on SparkPeople!

Thanks, that's too bad! ;) I used it all the time. I have tried the free apps. I'll try those again I guess. I used to use the Spark tracker but they stopped those too. :(

Sorry, that feature has been removed for now. Google made some changes
such that it no longer works with our platform. I am not sure if it
might come back some time in the future; but, there is no timeline set
for that.

To map out your walks at this time, you could go directly to Google Maps and create a route there. Or if you walk with a smart phone, you might check out the MapMyWalk or MapMyRun app. They have free versions that work pretty well.

Sorry I don't have a better answer for you.

What happened to the "Map My Walk" feature? I use that all the time and it's now gone. ;(
