How to tell where Google has Street View

iFit interfaceWe understand. It's no fun working out on iFit without street view. But how do you know if they area you're mapping has street view or not. There are several ways for you to check, but we'll just be showing you how to check through iFit.

Login to iFit.com from your laptop or desktop. When you create a map you'll go to:

  1. Create > Map Based Workout
  2. Give it a name, select run or cycle
  3. On the next screen enter the location or city name you want to map
  4. Switch the "Street View Availability" button to ON. All the blue lines are where Google has captured Street View.

Now zoom in or out and draw along the blue lines shown on the map. These blue lines are where Google has captured street view.

What is iRunMaps?

search-featureWe are a community based website that is run by an iFit user like you! We've loved creating unique and off-the-beaten-path maps for since 2011. Years ago, we saw the need for an quick and easy way to locate maps based on distance, location and incline. Our site is a search engine format that allows you to select numerous parameters and search for the exact map you want to workout to! You can even search for the exact distance!

These maps work with all equipment that is iFit® enabled. Bikes, treadmills, incline trainers Tour de France and ellipticals can all use these maps.

Besides our dynamic search feature, we also have the following:

  • Workout of the Week
  • Location Map Search
  • Location Listing Search
  • Collections of Maps (le Tour de France, 7 Wonders of the World, Castles, Grand Canyon, Color Run, Rock N Roll Marathon, and many more!)
  • Ability to email us if you have any map requests! If it has street view, we'll most likely map it for you
  • New maps weekly
  • Informational blogs on how to use your iFit machine and get the most out of it's features

How to see Street View on iFit

Google has NOT captured street view in all areas. To check if the area you are running has street view, click here. (be sure to bookmark it). If your workout has been drawn in an area that hasn't had street view captured, it will say something like "No Imagery Here" or "No Street View available here".

These are BASIC instructions for how to view street view on your iFit Compatible (built in screen) equipment.

  1. Turn on your machine and login
  2. Click on the Maps button
  3. Click on the Map Workout you would like to do from your list and begin your route.
  4. Your equipment has the options of showing Map, Street and Satellite views. It will automatically display Map view, then Street view, then Satellite view unless you touch the screen and button you want it to lock on. (IE: push the Street button on your touch screen and it will stay on Street View. You can also click the Lock/Unlock button to the right of Satellite to have it lock on whatever view it is currently displaying.
