    This is a really great addition to Zwift, one comment though, it’d be good if you could change the type size in the chat window, it’s just too small to read from the bike on my screen. J

    Thanks, this is a very nice and needed addition to Zwift. I was wondering if you can add an option to use a custom background for each route. I use this app on my second monitor and if I can change the background of the map I can make Q sheets and additional information as a picture to display with the map.

      I spend a load of time last night making a cool background for my London loop and it start to look super cool. Thanks again.

      I hate to ask, but here it goes. You gave us access to change the color of the line and the marker. do you have a hack to change the width and/or make it transparent.

        You can try the following in your user.css file:

        g.roads .roadline {
          /* the width of the road (default is 2800) */
          stroke-width: 6000px !important;
          /* colour (here set to transparent) */
          stroke: transparent !important;
        g.roads .roadsegment { 
          /* width of individual segment drawn on top of roadline (default 2000) */
          stroke-width: 3000px ! important;
          /* colour */
          stroke: blue !important;

    Suggestion: You could highlight some strava segments on the map (i would suggest the “…(zwiftblog verified)” segments.

    How do you “stay” signed in to Zwift from the ZwiftMap – configuration screen? Using Mac OS X version, I am able to sign in just fine. But as soon as I click the red X to close the ZwiftMap – Configuration window it appears to sign me out… should I just minimize the configuration window during each session??

    Why do I not see this overlay on Zwift? Doing something wrong…

    • jesper says:

      I assume that you have installed ZwiftMap from the download and theb launched both Zwift and ZwiftMap but cannot see the ZwiftMap overlay.

      Make sure that you run Zwift in window mode and not fullscreen mode.

      You may also try to start Zwift first and then ZwiftMap but it really shouldn’t matter.

    I’m not sure how others use the chat overlay but for me the more important parts are the time and chat message. It would be good if the order of the columns were changed from Time-Zwift ID-Chat text to Zwift ID-Time-Chat text so that i can push the Zwift ID off the left side of my screen to only see the time and chat text. Love your work!

    • Andrew Ballas says:

      oh hang on, disregard that, i just remembered that when i log in the zwift id changes to the persons name, Facepalm lol
