    Hi Elijah! We appreciate your feedback about our upcoming changes to the website. The Gear Tracker will now only be accessible in the mobile app. We will review and consider user feedback as we continue to build and improve our apps and sites.

    Please reconsider keeping Gear Tracker on the website.  It's very helpful and useful when going through my activities.

    I agree, Gear Tracker is essentially the only thing keeping me using Map My Run.  Without that, I will likely switch completely to Strava.

    I am another that is asking that you reconsider removing gear tracker from the website.  For starters, for some of us it is easier to use a website than our phones/apps.  In fact, I can't even figure out how to add which shoes I wore on my runs on the app.
    I'll be honest, the two features that keep me on here are and not in any order, The challenges and gear tracker.  To be honest, without the gear tracker, I would probably stop using the site/ap.

    I am adding my voice to the request for keeping the gear tracker on the website. Not all of us use the app for our workouts but choose to log manually via website.

    I too use the web version of gear tracker. The mobile app version is useless. I want to keep track of the miles on the various shoes I wear for road and trail running and walking and hiking. The gear tracker is a very useful tool.  Please do not remove it.

    Keep Gear tracker! Why would you remove it? I will switch to Strava if it's gone.

    If gear tracker is removed from the website, I will be another customer you lose to Strava. Gear tracker is the main reason I have stayed with MapMyRun for all these years.

    Hard to believe that Gear Tracker is so difficult to maintain on the website, when the data is readily available in the mobile app.

    Keep it available in the website as well, please!

    If the gear tracker is removed I am done using mapmyfitness.   This feature was the primary reason I started using this site the first place.  I was using Microsoft Band (already a few years back) and Microsoft did not have any built-in gear tracking.  I have since switched to Garmin which does have its own gear tracking but continued to use mymyfitness to bridge the gap for gear tracking that was already in progress.   But if mapmyfitness no longer has gear tracking on the main site, I am not sure what it offers me compared to just switching and entirely using Garmin connect for all my fitness tracking needs.

    Please keep the website's Gear Tracker functionality. After each run, I edit the workout via website to add the shoes that were used. When editing a workout via Android app, I have never found any option to add the shoes that were used. Also the Gear Tracker section of the Android app doesn't even show my current shoes.

    Geartracker is the ONLY reason I use MapMyFitness instead of Strava. I use my Apple Watch to track, so I have to edit my workout on the website to add my gear. If you stop allowing this, I will be heading to Strava.

    Please do not remove gear tracker. I use the website exclusively. Without Gear Tracker, I'll wind up having to keep a record of how many miles are on my shoes on a piece of paper. Please don't do this.

    I have been a paid member of MapMyRun for many years. I would be willing to continue my paid version if you keep Geartracker. I understand that maintaining both website and mobile app are two different things, but Geartracker is essential. It's part of what makes MapMyRun so useful. Please reconsider.

    I have to add my opinion also, I use the gear tracker for all my shoes and like to manually enter my data on the website and rarely use my app on the phone.

    Please keep Gear Tracker available on the website!  I cannot use it on the app, it doesn't work and it's very frustrating to struggle with it.  I love being able to go back and change gear used on a workout, after the fact, on the website.

    I discovered Gear Tracking a couple of years ago and have found it to be absolutely invaluable as a runner who is finally taking it seriously enough to need to have some way to easily track shoes.  The best way for me is to have it as part of my overall workout tracking.  If you get rid of it, then I guess I will have to leave MapMyFitness altogether and find another product that works for me.

    I have been with you for almost 20 years, and I would hate to lose this relationship.

    What is the intent behind removing gear tracker on the website? I am a MVP Member (since 2008) and losing the gear tracker function could be the deal breaker in my renewal decision. I love a lot of MapMyRun features (I.e. editing maps, create routes, etc.), but losing the gear tracker would be devastating.

    Gear Tracker isn't user friendly on the app. Please don't remove it from the website as well. I will be another customer leaving for a different running app if you remove it. Literally only use MapMyRuns for the gear tracker and history of my runs to keep me motivated. Having multiple shoes to track makes the gear tracker a much desired part of the app/website.

    Please do not drop Gear Tracker. It is very useful to know about when to retire my shows. As others have stated, this would be a deal-breaker for me on renewal. It would be good to add shoes to the set list as it apparently only lists shoes that are available on line thru Zapatos or something. It also should remove retired shoes from the list that we select from when recording a run. Please DO NOT remove this very useful feature.
