Strava has added 3D maps to its Android and iOS apps with its latest update, released over the course of yesterday (Thursday).

The update offers a 3D terrain view designed to make it easier for athletes to visualise elevation changes and topography of a route, segment or activity. This benefits riders seeking both challenging climbing routes and more comfortable journeys. It is available to Strava premium members only, providing "added value" to those who pay for the subscription.
