Just to say thanks to whoever mentioned the MapMyRun little nifty trick of speaking to you every 0.5k to tell you how you’re doing. This really helped me keep going this morning, so thanks for the tip!

Excellent. I too have MapMyRun speaking to me every 0.5km as opposed to every 1km. Much more satisfying for me to know I’ve done 0.5kms instead of waiting for what feels like ages to hear about the 1km split times.

Any idea where /how I find it?

I’ve just been in App and think I’ve looked everywhere but can’t seem to find option - could only find a choice of miles or km

Thanks

I have the voice turned off in MapMyRun at the moment. Can you have that voice and MJ at the same time? Thought that might not work as also have music playing

You can have MapMyRun, MJ and your music all going at the same time!! MapMyRun and MJ both talk over the music 🎧
