hmm, that's there in 10.3.3 at least on my unit.
I don't remember seeing this in iOS10 and it was just added (back????) to iOS11 in the previous build. Please post a screenshot of this? Are others with iOS10 seeing a satellite view (toggle switch top right)?

I'm currently on 10.3.3 and I only have the default map, no sat view. I've owned an Apple Watch since November of last year, and I've never seen the satellite view in the Activity app since that time. Here's a screenshot of my latest workout.

Yes here is the switch button that was added. Waiting to hear back from tivoboy but assuming they didn't understand or know what it is.

Nah understood just fine. Didn’t have the time to take a screen shot and post st the time. And by now I’m up on 11/7
Agin this is a NEW feature that was just added in the previous build of iOS11 (15A5354b). It is not available in iOS10 nor was it even in the first 5 builds of iOS11. See klymr post as proof on iOS10. So you could not have seen this (or taken a screenshoot) in iOS10 since it isn't available.

Hmm, don't think you understood at all. iOS 10 does not have the satellite view.

Just to add for everyone you can go back and look at older (iOS10, iOS9, etc) Outdoor Workouts and see in satellite view too.

Does anyone know what the color variations for the route represent? They vary thru a range of green, yellow with various points of red in different spots. Are those colors representing my heart rate?

Thanks

Those represent how quickly you were moving along various portions of your route. Red is where you were moving the slowest, green is where you were fastest. The other colors represent speeds in-between those. The closer to red the color is, the slower you were. Sliding closer to green is faster.

Just a correction. You can only go back into iOS10 since that is when Apple started (standard) rout mapping. Here is an iOS10 bike ride from Oct 16 with the new satellite view. also I think the Start and End flags are new with a running man on the start flag. A little strange since this was a bike ride.

EDIT: Yes they were/are Pins (green/red) in iOS10 and have been changed (or will be when everyone updates) to Flags.

A couple of other differences. The date is missing in iOS11 (just says Back) and the Workouts and Achievements icons are filled.

I have never seen an app called activity from Apple... so again, is this inside the health app or something?
