Hey,

So honest I am not going mad, but a couple of weeks back my bolt in map view had the profile graph at the bottom, I really liked it, but now its gone and I do not know how to get it back.

Anyone?

    I just found out the answer. Can you believe the feature I liked was a bug and fixed in the latest firmware update:-

    BOLT WB15-4036 - 9 July, 2019
    FIXED: Climbing profile incorrectly displaying on map page

    Oh man.

    You have to laugh, I noticed this too, and the subsequent removal in recent update. Sounds like they should be lobbied to put it back as a selectable option on the map page.

    For sure, I was going bonkers to find that setting. I loved that profile on the map. I already sent them an email, so the more people that ask the more chance.
  • I wouldn't hold your breath. They're completely useless at listening to customers/ users requests. I've contacted them several times to ask why they can't provide lap-by-location functionality. My old Garmin Edge 500 had this very basic yet very useful function which allowed you to trigger an auto lap eg every time you passed the finish line in a road circuit race.

    Elevation profile on the map page is a feature on the ROAM. It might be filtered down to older devices once the ROAM has gone through any teething problems. I'm sure my ELEMNT does lap by location and I've never had a problem with communication with Wahoo. Maybe its the way you ask? :D

    They did say they would forward my request. And the fact they have already done it and removed means it's obviously possible and the code is already there.

    Latest firmware update on Bolt doesn't yield lap by location, and no, it's nothing to do with the way I've asked.

    Can you create a custom page to include the gradient view using the app?

    I don't think you can. AFAIK you only get it on the "climbing" page.

    By chance I discovered Stages do a GPS computer that shows the elevation profile, while browsing PBK earlier.

    I suspect this was an accidental push of a future feature, as mentioned above regarding the ROAM.
    Cube Reaction GTC Pro 29 for the lumpy stuff
    Cannondale Synapse alloy with 'guards for the winter roads

    Mentioned by Shane Miller in his YT video at about 4:50.

    Basically you toggle the option on the Elmnt & Roam but not on the Bolt.

    Not available on the Bolt cos of the smaller screen I guess but it does seem to be getting left behind with updates.

    Also says Wahoo will be supporting Varia Radar & ANT+ on all devices "soon". Personally I can't wait for this.

    This.
    It is on the roam and elemnt but the bolt screen is too small to display it according to Shane Miller

  • From what I can see on my Elemnt its not possible to add the Elevation profile at the bottom of the map. Not on the latest update anyway.

    It is on the ELEMNT but not the Bolt. My ELEMNT is doing it without issue.
