Really bummed it's gone too. I had many routes I used on that. :( Hope SP can come up with something more useful for folks to use. What a bummer.

Very disappointing. Tech "team" should be expanding, there are now several issues you are falling behind on.

Not everybody has a smart phone, nor the ability to use apps like that, and the functionality of them leaves a lot to be desired.

It's so disappointing. Several years of saved maps, walks & notes just gone.

Hard to believe that coding couldn't be changed to work with the updates. Maybe the emphasis is on Facebook now.

What is a good free substitute now that Map My Walk is gone?

I had so many routes saved with that feature. I liked how it would track the miles you walked throughout the day/week.

I'm so sad about this. Even though the map has been showing errors for a while, it still worked with my 30 + saved routes. I'm really going to miss those. One of my favorite things on SparkPeople!

Thanks, that's too bad! ;) I used it all the time. I have tried the free apps. I'll try those again I guess. I used to use the Spark tracker but they stopped those too. :(

Sorry, that feature has been removed for now. Google made some changes
such that it no longer works with our platform. I am not sure if it
might come back some time in the future; but, there is no timeline set
for that.

To map out your walks at this time, you could go directly to Google Maps and create a route there. Or if you walk with a smart phone, you might check out the MapMyWalk or MapMyRun app. They have free versions that work pretty well.

Sorry I don't have a better answer for you.

What happened to the "Map My Walk" feature? I use that all the time and it's now gone. ;(
