Hey, I'd like to see how long I've traveled on a specific road instead of where my car starts and stops. Is there any way to do this?

Hi Omar,

That's not currently possible since the adapter and Web Dashboard both only show the completed trips. I wish I had better news!

Hi Omar, a partial solution is possible, but would be some work for you.

You can download the Google Encoded Polyline format string of your trips' paths by exporting them from the web dashboard to a CSV. Then, you can take the Encoded Polyline string and use Google's utility to decode it into a path string. From there, you could measure the length of sub segements within google maps.

Here's the decoder: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/utilities/polylineutility
