  1. GPX tracks viewing on smart watch (Gear S3)

    Can you please create functionality for smart watch (Samsung Gear S3) that will allow me to see imported .gpx track on map together with my position so I can use it to follow the track without the need to pull out my phone every now and then? It doesn't have to be stand alone feature as I have my phone all the time with me anyway.

  2. Enable upload of completed tours / activities to Strava.

    Komoot has amazing tour planning and navigation features. But all my past activities are stored in Strava. Strava has a great activy community and is awesome in activity sharing, comparing and analysing of completed activities.

    The combination of Strava and Komoot kills every competitor.

    Downloading GPX files and uploading them again in Strava is off course possible, but what kind of user expierence is that?

    Not up to Komoot's standards, I would argue...

  3. Add live tracking option / Find currently active users

    Our cycle club is building a web page to track the positions of our riders every few minutes, so anyone with the right permission, on the ride or not, can see where all riders are.

    Our Android users will broadcast their location continuously with the Android Osmand app, but the iPhone version does not do it, and anyway Komoot is better.

    Osmand is open-source, so the live tracking is an open standard. Adding this code to just the Komoot client would allow Komoot to drive these webpages just like Osmand, and let users choose the best client app.

  4. Collections for everybody!

    Could be great group several tours in one collection. At the moment only komoot staff can do it.

  5. Distinguish paved vs. unpaved roads

    As a road cyclist I am mostly concerned about the road surface, in particular whether the surface is paved or unpaved.
    Komoot doesn't distinguish this very well on smaller road.

    I typically have to resort to openstreetmap to get a detailed view on where I want to cycle in the planning phase. However, the map is rendered nowhere as nice as on komoot.

    Since komoot focuses mainly on non motorized traffice I think this distinction should be an important part of the map.

  6. Share tours only with followers / Additional privacy mode

    When sharing a planned tour with a friend I'm setting this tour as public which I don't like.

    Like in garmin connect it would be useful to have couple of basic privacy settings like:

    -private
    -shared with my followers (all)
    -shared with followerX,Y,Z (selected)
    -public

    hope it makes sense,
    thx

  7. Report track / mistakes directly to OpenStreetMap

    During my trips I always find paths that are not drawn on the map, I suggest you to create a kind of editor with which you can draw new paths or roads. It is possible to make this or only in personal acconts like a personal note or in a public mode like an indication for everybody.

    And More, when I go for a MTB tour I planned, I often find parts of paths or whole paths or singletracks those are rather uncycleable.
    I suggest you to add a way to vote any part of a tour or write a…

    Hi Sebastiano

    thanks a lot for the interesting feedback!

    I have changed the idea’s title around a little. Currently you can change and add tracks on OpenStreetMap, where we receive our data from: http://www.openstreetmap.org/

    But it’s not possible to pass this on directly via komoot while you are on a Tour. Should there be any changes in the future, we will keep you posted here.

    if you want to edit the komoot map, you can make changes on OSM; we’ll use them in our routing from there (it takes 1-3 weeks max at th moment for routing changes to be applied; the changed tracks are visible in the map sooner; usually a day after being entered)

    Best regards

  8. Display all place names in Latin characters in addition to Cyrillic or Chinese

    Not all users can read Greek, Russian, Chinese, Thai, Korean, Japanese etc characters. So Komoot is almost useless if biking through those countries. Your database already contains many of these placenames in English, as I can e.g. search for Athens/Greece. But on the map the name is not recognizable

  9. Planned tour time calculated on my historical data

    What I really miss in a tour planner is something that can give me an accurate expected time. I see that there is a fitness level slider to chose from “couch potato” to “pro” and this is a good solution.
    What about adding a custom profile based on my historical data to increase the accuracy? This could be done using the completed tours or importing and tagging with a sport, then this tours could be processed to create some customized routing profiles: one for each sport processed (I played a bit with graphhopper https://github.com/graphhopper/graphhopper/blob/0.6/docs/core/create-new-flagencoder.md to create my custom hiking profile) …

  11. Improve elevation profile while following tour / Scalable elevation profile

    When you are following a tour on your device you have the option to show an elevation profile. This shows the elevation profile of the tour from beginning to end. If the tour is long say 100km, the profile is so compressed as to be of little use. My suggestions are: 1. Start the profile chart from your actual position so that space isn't wasted on the part you have already covered. 2. Only show the next 5-10km (perhaps depending on the type of tour) from your current position.

  12. Show speed profile / graph in completed Tours (App)

    After recording and saving the track, Komoot displays the altitude graph. Please, also show the speed graph, just like you do on the web version on the desktop.

    There are those tracks you want to bypass the browser version altogether to evaluate the track.

    Keep up the good work

  13. Mark / highlight roads in different colors

    I have a very specific idea, which I haven't seen in any cycling app I know: Coloring roads. For example, I have a forest nearby in which some trails are great, some are terrible - I'd like to mark the former in green on the map, the latter in red, so that I know which roads & trails to avoid when planning my next route. Is there any chance of something like this happening?

    An alternative would be to simply add notes, but other than an old topic (link below) I haven't found anything on this.

  14. Add "home" highlight / Save personal addresses

    There should be a way to save custom points like "home" for example, and maybe others.

    Right now, I plan routes starting from my home to various places in the area and I have to type my address every time to set the start point. If I had my custom points in "Saved highlights", this would save time and make the app more usable.

  15. Make POIs / Highlights available offline

    When you download your route, It would be nice to also be able to search an area around the route for things like camp sites, attractions etc whilst off-line.

    In particular I think that using this feature for finding accommodation would be most useful.

    Perhaps the area that is downloaded could be an adjustable area, say a range from 1 to 20 miles surrounding the planned route. Also including the option to select where that info is downloaded to (internal or external storage on smart device)

  16. Bulk import of GPX files

    I would like to be able to drag and drop a whole bunch of older GPX files onto a web page so they can all be imported into Komoot.

    Obviously the names of the routes should use the name from inside the XML file and the filename is that's not available.

  18. Add sticky notes / comments to waypoints

    Each waypoint when you click on it needs to have an area for writing a sticky note. eg. accommodation notes, things yet do do.

  19. Order Tours by difficulty / stamina

    It would be great to have in the app and in the site the option to classify each tour by inputing difficulty, stamina, panorama, and others marks and link all of them outputing automatically one of the 3 category by difficulty (blu, red or black). 

    It would be also good to order my tours in the app by different catagory (date, duration, etc.) like it happens in the site and have at least one small icon (or if the picture is not available the map of the track) as a tag/cover for each line of the result to help identify…

  20. Heart Rate Monitoring with zones

    This app is outstanding. To put it over the top include heart rate zone monitoring through bluetooth strap with zone alarms. This can also be expanded to cadence for biking like runtastic or garmin with the appropriate sensor at the crank.
