    Does anyone know if the walking directions will work while I'm doing a running workout in the Workout app? My use case is having the taps tell me what roads to take while tracking that as a run. Curious if that'll work, I think the horsepower is there now with Series 3, anyone try this yet?

    I have written an app called WorkOutDoors that shows a fully functional vector map whilst you are exercising. It doesn't do taptic feedback (yet) but does allow you to navigate whilst also showing your workout stats. There is a separate thread for it on this forum. Or check out the website.

    I tried this out and you can use Maps and Workout at the same time! Worked perfectly.

    Glad you like it! Please let me know if you have any questions about the app, or any suggestions to improve it.
