Getting Started with MapMy Apps (iOS)

Thanks for using MapMyFitness, MapMyRun, MapMyRide, MapMyWalk, or MapMyHike! To get started using the app, select the app icon from your home screen. If you haven't registered with us, you can create an account by tapping "Join Now." If you have registered in the past, tap "Log In" to enter your email or username and password. 

The first time you open the app, you will be greeted with a request to allow your MapMy app to use your GPS/Location Services even when not in use. This needs to be enabled in order to accurately track your workouts.

After allowing Location Services, a tutorial will appear to walk you through the app's basic functionality. The Location Services and tutorial prompts can be restored by deleting and reinstalling the app. 

Track Workout

The app's home page is the "Track Workout" screen. If you find yourself needing to return to this page but don't know how, tap the stopwatch icon in the middle of the navigation menu along the bottom of the screen.

To customize your workout settings, including activity type and voice feedback preferences, tap the Settings icon, next to the music icon. This will open the Workout Setup page, which allows you to change activity type, select gear for your workout, enable voice feedback and more. If you don't see the activity type you want, tap "See More Activities," and then tap "All" to search for the activity type.

Once your workout settings are correct, tap "Done" to return to the Track Workout screen. Then tap the green "Start Workout" button to begin recording a workout. 

After you start recording a workout, the app will track your route and display your workout statistics, including: distance, duration, pace, calorie burn, and heart rate (if selected), as well as additional customizable stats.

To pause your workout, tap the "Pause Workout" button. Once paused, you can either resume your workout or end your workout. To end your workout, hold down the "HOLD TO FINISH" Button. After finishing a workout, a workout cannot be resumed.

After finishing a workout, you will be able to customize your workout post. You can choose which stats you'd like displayed, add a note or photo to your workout, and select your preferred privacy setting for your workout. 


If you took photos during your workout, the first one you took will be featured on your workout post. You can change which photo is featured by tapping on any of the pictures below at the bottom of your screen. The featured photo is highlighted in green with a star. Up to five photos may be added to your workout.


You can now customize which stats are featured in your workout post by tapping on the center of your screen where it says "Tap image to edit." By default, three stats will be auto-filled; however, you can change these stats by tapping once on the stat you'd like to replace, and then once on the stat below that you'd like to have featured.


Important note: if you do not have a photo associated with your workout, you cannot customize the stats that are featured on your workout post. 

In order to sync your workout to our servers, tap "Save" in the upper right.

Log a Workout

Logging a workout is best reserved for indoor/stationary workouts that do not use GPS to measure distance, or for workouts you have already completed.

To log a workout on our mobile app, open the menu by tapping the "More" icon in the bottom right of the Track Workout screen.  From the "Log Workout" page, you can enter the workout's date, activity type, route (if applicable), distance, duration, caloric burn, and more by tapping the "Additional Stats" header. Be sure to select your desired privacy setting and tap "Done" when finished in the upper right corner.

Activity Feed

Your Activity Feed is where all content generated by you, your friends, and the community is shared. As long as the privacy setting is set to "friends" or "public," all workouts or posts created by your friends can be viewed here, much like the Newsfeed in Facebook. 

To view you and your friends' workouts and posts, tap the Feed icon in the navigation menu. You can toggle between Community, Friends, and Me views.
