It would be nice to have a way to see a map showing all of your stumbles only, to assist in determining future routes.

I've been wanting this on my android to keep from from going around in circles.

on the web maps, click [x] first discovered by me. i use this all the time for planning my rides.

First Discovered By Me assumes that, for each path one takes, one discovers new networks. I'd like to also see (in another color) observed networks, in case one's predecessors were thorough.

I agree. The First Discovered is okay, but a selection for Observed would be the way to go. This would ensure you're able to identify new areas to cover, which you haven't been before.

we'll put it on the "to consider" list.
it isn't as straightforward as it sounds, in this case.

While not optimal, I've found if I use JiGLE, I can get a close approximation of what you are looking for. Select only found by you, then enable a date filter that covers a recent arbitrary date range, I try for a view that has a road I knew when I last drove it. When it appears/disappears, I've reached the right time. Then I toggle only by me and only by others and see what else appears on the map showing what has been driven since that date, besides by me. It would be darn difficult to do that if you are limited to the webmaps.

Also you need to be realistic, unless you work as a city plow/street sweeper you are not going to be revisiting roads except in the densest of areas or your common travel routes more than every few years. Bang for Buck your best bet is driving a road that is older than 5 years only if it has a heavy concentration of AP's, and then only if you can't drive an area that doesn't have any AP's on the map. Scanning an area with a heavy concentration of transient population which moves every year is an option, though more than likely you will be moving points around rather than finding as many new points.

I just realized that I was not paying attention when the JiGLE Application Update occured. So my above comments apply to 0.7.7 I have not yet tried it with 8.0.
