    Loving the new OS version. You Rock! Thanks.
    Is there a way to resize the names of followees and the color without resizing the map? Thanks.

    • jesper says:

      In this version you cannot change the text size except by zooming the entire map.

      The colour of the text is taken from the option ‘Rider colour (other riders)’, so that you can override as you like. Just remember to uncheck ‘Use default colours’.

    • jesper says:

      Actually, you CAN overwrite the text size but you have to:

      First create a folder named zwiftmap in your Documents/Zwift folder
      Then create a file named user.css in the zwiftmap folder with the following content:

      g.rider text {
      font-size: 12000px !important;
      }

      12000px is the default size so change the number to whatever suits you.

        Thanks, I will add those lines of code. 🙂

        Do you have plans to have the software remember the user name and password?

        • jesper says:

          It should remember the user name.

          We do not want to risk overloading the Zwift API. Because you actively have to sign in it helps to make sure that there are not unnecessary many clients polling for data.

          I may add an option later to remember the password.

          Regards,
          Jesper

            thanks,

            Yes it remember the username. I see your point.
            I just have to remember to sign in in future. I was wondering this morning why I don’t see the rider names in Chat and I don’t see my friends riding (ok one friend). I checked after the ride and realized that I did not sign in.

    I was just about to ask about the text size on the Pc . 🙁

    I did the London Loop this morning with my Ghost pacing to help me set my PB. It worked better than expected. (I picked the wrong Ghost to pace).

    My ghost got tired after the lap and did not ride with me for a second lap. It would be nice if the ghost would regroup at the start/finish line for a second lap.

    This is a cool tool, Thanks for all your hard work.

    I’m having trouble getting the ghost feature to work on my PC. When I launch ZwiftMaps the “edit ghost” button doesn’t allow me to click on it. Is using the ghost feature something that I should use through my phone rather then my PC?

    Thanks for all the hard work and great features that you’re adding to the Zwift platform.

    • David says:

      Me too.
      Do you have a solution please?
      Thanks

      • jesper says:

        The ghost feature was disabled in the ‘official’ version of ZwiftMap in May because it depended on Zwift APIs which we cannot use anymore.

        The new ZwiftMap Preview version uses ZwiftGPS which lets you ride against your own Strava times. This version is currently only available for Windows.

    The new version for PC is great. I read that to move and resize, drag the bottom right corner. I am using a laptop and, I left click in the area, hold it and move the mouse but, nothing. Map remains in top right and chat in top left. What am I doing wrong. Thanks again.

    • jesper says:

      Press the key combo Alt+Windows+Z first. Then you will get a border around the map and chat log which you can grab and resize with.

      • Stuart Angowitz says:

        Thank you. Thanks again for all the functionality. Incredible additions to Zwift.

  5. Gerrie Delport says:

    Hi Jesper, I don’t know how one can ride with out this map.
    I was wondering if in event mode if you have access to the rider list. It will be nice to see all the riders in the event on the Map.

  6. Miquel Casas says:

    I have followed a few people in Zwift companion but I can’t see them on Zwiftgps. Is there lag? Do I need to wait? Am I doing something wrong?

    • jesper says:

      The reason is probably that they haven’t opted in to ZwiftGPS at my.zwift.com or in the Companion app.

      • Miquel Casas says:

        Hi Jesper, I had opted in at my.zwift.com, will that be sufficient? Or do I need to do it in the companion app to?

        • jesper says:

          Yes that is sufficient.

          • Miquel Casas says:

            I just connected to ZwiftGPS and in companion I see 6 zwifters that I follow riding right now but I only see 2 in the map. These are zwifters that I follow through companion24 hours ago. I’m wondering if it just takes some time for them to show up in ZwiftGPS and whether not all of them show up because they are participating in an event or something like it. I’m wondering if there is a way to see if I a Zwifter is an event or just doing a joy ride.

  7. Miquel Casas says:

    Hi Jesper, just for kicks, I checked the Companion apps settings (IOS) “Connections” and I see Strava, Garmin, Training Peaks, Withings, today’s Plan, MapMyFitness and fitbit, but I see not option for ZwiftGPS. However, the option is there in the my.zwift.com website. However, I’m doing the ‘follow’ to several riders using the ‘Companion app’. I’m wondering if that is the issue but I would have to see how I do the follow without the companion app and see if it works better.

    • jesper says:

      You’re right that it is not an option in Zwift Companion App. I had forgotten that. However, that has nothing to do with whether you can see your friends or not in ZwiftGPS. Remember that they have to connect their account to ZwiftGPS, too.

      • Miquel Casas says:

        Hi Jesper, that makes sense that I would not see them unless they are in ZwiftGPS. It would be nice to know who is in ZwiftGPS to follow them. I just see riders that do the routes I like and I have similar performance to mine and I was wondering why I was not seeing them and it must be because they are not in ZwiftGPS.
