When viewing a trip in the Automatic Pro app, it shows the standard map view. It would be nice to toggle into Satellite view on some trips to view more detail.

Derek, looks like you've been busy. :-)  I'm going to make a bunch of IFTTT and GAS-related suggestions to your comments.  It may get old, but even if they're not helpful to you someone else may find them helpful.

For this one, if you have IFTTT write the trip data somewhere, you can take the "TripPathImageMapURL" value and just replace the word "roadmap" with "satellite" all the way at the end of the URL.

Like I said, that's only helpful *after* the trip, but options are good. :-)

I've been an Automatic customer since 2013 pre-order days :) Love the 3rd gen (Pro), but missing some older features. Been writing local note reminders for awhile on wish list items, finally got around to posting them online. Gotta keep Amy busy over the holidays ;)

Hi chillumguy - satellite view isn't in the app for Pro and isn't currently on the product roadmap but I've shared your enthusiasm for this request with the product team. :)

Hi Just Installed Pro on all of my work trucks, Works great! Would be even greater if i could view the map with a satalite view. Road and street names do not show up on the map
