    • Now there is the possibility of uploading files and seeing that they only have Waypoints
    • We clarify that in relation to Waypoints we still have a lot to do, for example being able to add a Waypoint from Sicami at a point that is not part of the route.


    • The Activities section becomes the home page of Sicami. Content that was previously on the home page can be viewed in the main menu "About Sicami"
    • The upload of KMZ and KML files is allowed, due to the wide variety of possible formats in the KMZ and KML files, please notify us of any incident.

    • Other minor changes.


    • The automatic download time of Strava activities is uploaded to a check every 30 minutes.
    • Usernames cannot match the names of other users.
    • Some improvement on the 3D map.


    • As of this morning, every 10 minutes, information on the city, province, etc., where the start of said route is located, is added to the routes that did not already have it.
    • This information from the previous point is valid to search for routes with the search engine, now the search is done by two criteria: the routes that are within a 50KM radius of the coordinates that the geolocation service that we use gives to the name of the zone written in the "Zone..." box, in addition to that, all the routes will be searched in which the written text coincides with any of the cities, provinces, etc. assigned as indicated in the previous point. This is done in both cases when you write something in the "Zone (50km Radius)" box.



    • The 3D view is now also available in Plans and in Activities that do not have a timestamp. The reproduction time is susceptible to improvement, which on some routes of not much distance may be excessive.
    • The option in the 3D view to stop the execution of the playback and go to the beginning has been added.
    • A new button has been added to show possible playback options for the route, for now there is only the option to stop the automatic 360º rotation.
    • We reactivate the automatic import from Strava, we remind you that you have a box in Modify My Data



    • The request limits imposed by Strava for the import of tracks mean that for now we are forced to deactivate the "Auto-import tracks from Strava" option. We have verified that the limitation of requests that a priori should be for each user, when requests are made in an automatic process from Sicami add up and the limit is reached too soon, harming even those who do not activate this option and want to import from Strava manually .



    • Added the option to download Strava activities automatically. This option is activated from the user options "Modify my data", there we will have a new box called "Auto-import Strava tracls". When doing this, all the routes that each user has in Strava will be downloaded, be aware that they will have the same privacy that they have in Strava (private, friends or public).
      The process is slow because Strava limits the number of requests every X time, so we make download requests every 10 minutes, this means that for someone who has a lot of activities on Strava it could take even more than a day.
      On the other hand, we may later have to deactivate that option if we have any complaints from Strava, in the event that they consider us their competition.
    • By default, when a route is seen by its owner, it is shown completely, but when it is seen by someone who is not the owner, the first 400m and the final 400m are hidden.
      This has always been the case, now we add the possibility that each user can specify the number of initial and final meters to hide. Later on we will also give the possibility that these initial and final meters can be specified for each route.
    • The hidden parts of the previous point when the route is seen by its owner are shown in gray.
    • In the Map in Real Time we add a new box to the right of each "friend" to show or not the route that person has followed. The position and route followed will be shown only from the last 6 hours.
    • The possibility has been added from the search for activities and plans to search for routes that are within a 50km radius of the written area (towns for example).
