I would like to inquire if you can improve the color on the dashboard because its really hard to see the trip data on the screen.

Also how do I attachment to show you what I mean.

Thanks, Przemek. I think I know what you mean -- the fact that it uses a lot of grey scale color so there's not much contrast? Thanks for the feedback. You're not the first to mention this.
Great, now s there enough reaction to update the dashboard with more contrast colours that are easier to read the data on the dashboard.

I hope we can make this adjustment at some point. It's a matter of prioritizing limited resources but I'll remind the product team about this issue.

The dashboard looks like everything is grayed out. Fonts with 20% gray on white are hard to read... Please create a few more options, perhaps create some "Themes" that callout a different CSS file for colors. Like black text on a white background with blue highlight color. instead of White Gray and dark gray.

Any progress?  I just installed my first Pro yesterday and the dashboard -- especially the map -- seems to the most significant disappointment.  It would be really nice to be able to toggle between line and image maps.  Otherwise this seems like the perfect product to help me cope with my 16 year old daughter's new drivers license!

Thanks for clarifying, Jack. Our Classic app (which accompanies our Gen 1 & 2 adapters) does have the ability to switch between the line map and the satellite view but we haven't included that option in the new app. Interestingly, I don't think many folks have noticed that or asked about it. It's possible the product team determined the satellite view wasn't used much. 

But I think you're requesting that the Web Dashboard map have these options? Noted. The Web Dashboard is due for a complete redesign one of these days so it's good to have these requests captured!

And retired cartographer! Very cool. I believe you're the first cartographer I've met. :)

Hi Amy, not to over analyze but for me the readability issue is with the Dashboard map. I'd personally like to be able to toggle the satellite view in both the web and mobile interfaces.  

Those small nits aside this is a pretty cool product!

Thanks again!

You're welcome and thanks! Glad you're enjoying it overall! We just released an app update today which also made some improvements to the map.

I just came across this older "Idea" post, Jack, where one of our long-time users did make the suggestion of the satellite view option. Thought you might like to vote & chime in on it. :)
