# Distance remaining in a city

I have noticed the feature “distance covered in a city” which works good but it is not exactly my usecase.

My understanding is that the “distance covered in a city” feature calculates all km covered in the city i.e. If a street is 1km long, and I run a 0.8km stretch of this city for 10 times, then the feature would calculate that 0.8x10=8km.

What would be of use to me is the idea of remaining kilometers. Continuing with the example above, I would want to see 0.2km as distance remaing.

Thank you,
Joseph.

My reply is largely a copy & paste from Number of miles covered in a city - #5 by JamesChevalier where the idea was first introduced. It was a good decision to add this to the Ideas category - thanks!

The easy path for me would be to sum up the distance of all incomplete streets. This would be slightly inaccurate, if you’ve partially completed some of them.

I’ll need to look into if/how I can calculate that partially completed distance, to subtract it from the sum.

Your 0.8km example wouldn’t equal out to 0.2km remaining in any scenario, though. In my ‘easy path’ scenario, it would indicate 10km remaining & in my other scenario (if I can math out partial distances) it would indicate 9.2km remaining.
