In summer 2015 Garmin introduced Live Strava Segments and since then both Mio and Wahoo Fitness have also introduced the feature to their recent devices (full list of supported devices). Currently the Garmin devices are limited to bringing in just 100 of your starred Strava segments. This resulted in a number of VeloViewer users asking for a quicker way to manage their starred segments when planning trips away as they were going beyond that 100 segment limit. Strava kindly opened up their API for starring segments so I’ve added in the ability to star and unstar segments in every possible location in VeloViewer to make life a bit easier for you.
Wherever you see the star next to a segment you can now press it to toggle its starred state. These locations are:
I’ve also added a count of your currently starred segments to your Summary page in the header of the “Segment Stats” section which links to your segment list passing the filter to show just the starred segments.
This looks to be the prime location for starring new segments for your travels. Just set up some Strava routes for your planned rides and then view the routes in VeloViewer (from your Routes List) and check out the segments on offer and star the ones you fancy challenging yourself on.
The segment list shows you all of the segments you have completed and when filtering to just show your starred segments should provide a good spot to quickly unstar your segments as required. Filter by the Starred field and then perhaps using the map area to remove the ones you no longer need (check the “Filter” box below the map):
But there is a chance that you didn’t tick off all of the segments you starred so some of them won’t be appearing in the list. Fear not, at the base of the list you will see a new “View [n] other starred segments” which when pressed provides a list of your other starred segments with links and the option to unstar:
