Heatmap feature announcement

Was planning my route for tomorrow’s run and noticed that Garmin had made some improvements to their website. One is a heatmap feature. It combines all other users activities to give you a visual of where the hot spots for running or cycling activities are in an area.

Its only been released in a few popular cities so far, but will be expanded. Nice feature if you are new or visiting an area and looking for what the popular places may be to check out.

They have also added OpenStreetMap (What iOS uses) to your choices of maps. So you now have Google, Bing and OpenStreetMap mapping options.
