  1. to upload gpx files from mobile app as well (not just from Desktop)

    It would be so useful to have an opportunity to upload gpx files as planned tours from my komoot mobile app as well, not just from Desktop.

    Hi everyone

    that features is already available in the Android app. Start a tour, tap on the sound icon, then you can choose the feature to wake up the screen before intersection.

    Realizing this mode for the iOS app is a bit more more complex (we cannot entirely turn off the screen there). Should there be any changes, we’ll keep you posted here!

    best regards
    Daniela

  4. Plan tour in a loop

    When you try to make a hike or bike ride that is a loop, the route keeps trying to cross back over itself. You should have a command that tells Komoot "Don't cross over, keep the route an un-interrupted loop"
    Google maps has the same problem.
    I don't want to retrace my steps I want a LOOP!

    Hello everyone,

    the mode back/forth during planning your Tour is specifically targeted to give you the direct way back to your starting point, as the best and fastet option.

    We understand your wish to receive a circular route here, but it is unfortunately not realizable in the way you are thinking. Why? We want to be able to suggest you a truly good Tour, and not just draw a random circle on the map.

    That’s why we developed our “Smart Tours” that are based on Highlights as well as Tours actually recorded in that region – meaning we only take paths that several users have used and enjoyed before. These Tours are planned as circular round trips – you can either save them as they are, or keep editing them.

    To find our suggestions, you either click on a Highlight on our website or the iOS app (coming also on…

  5. include an option to draw the map relative to direction of travel.

    The compass of my device is often flaky and therefore not a good alternative.

    Hello everyone

    with the latest App update we have worked out a solid solution to this problem that will give you the best possible orientation based on your sports type.

    When you open the map view, your current direction will now be indicated by a small triangle if you turn the map (iOS: Tap the direction arrow to activate that mode; will be used automatically with the release after).

    If you are on the road with more than 7 km/h, the position marker will turn into an arrow that shows your direction of travel. In addition to this, your map will then be adjusted according to your current driving/running direction based on the GPS signal. If you are getting below the above-mentioned speed, we’ll switch back to compass mode, for best possible orientation.

    Thus, you can be sure you always know which direction you’re heading to!

    Enjoy!

    Best regards
    Daniela

  6. Round Trip

    Would be good if the planned route could be a round trip back to where you started, as a suggested route.

    Hi,

    on our website you can activate “Round-Trip” right under your starting point and destination. This will automatically plan the way back to your start. By adding a third point waypoint (or even more) with a right click you can plan beautiful round trips.

    Best regards,

  7. Support for the new garmin fenix 5 plus

    Hi,
    I see that the komodo garmin app does not work (yet) with the new fenix 5 plus.
    I am sure that it is temporary, but would like to be sure that it will be supported in the future.
    It seems to me this is the same platform as the fenix 5 (already supported), so I hope the support for fenix 5 plus will be added very soon.
    Thx

    Hello

    thanks a lot for your idea!

    Since we managed to successfully test our app works well on the devices listed further below, we are now supporting them with our latest App release in the Garmin IQ Connect Store.

    The newly added devices are:

    - Forerunner 645
    - Forerunner 645 Music
    - Descent MK1
    - Edge 520 plus
    - Fenix 5 plus
    - Fenix 5X plus
    - Fenix 5S plus
    - Edge Explore
    - Rino 7

    The full list of our currently supported devices are listed on our App Store Page (https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/d918ae1e-9e7b-4fdf-b336-46141a0ccd6a).

    Unfortunately, some Garmin devices still don’t fulfill the technical requirements needed to download komoot routes to the device (e.g.: Vivoactive 3/HR, Fenix 3). If this should change, we will let you know!

    In the meantime, you can of course download your komoot Tours as GPX files via our website and transfer them to your device that…

  8. Import GPX and plan exactly the same route without mapping to Komoot's database

    I have a lot of interesting routes from websites, but every time I import and plan this route (via GPX) Komoot is always trying to map it against his own database. This creates a lot of overhead by rerouting all deviations to the original GPX route.

    Dear komoot fans,

    As promised before, you can now import GPS files (GPX, FIT, TCX) directly into the planner (and as before via our website). Once your upload is in, you’ll be given the choice to adjust the route to komoot’s database of known ways, or to keep it exactly as it is in the file (by plotting off-grid waypoints).

    Whichever you choose, komoot’s turn-by-turn voice navigation and offline maps will still work to navigate you around your imported route.

    For more information, check out our blog post here: https://blog.komoot.com/how-to-navigate-any-route-on-komoot/11475

    You can find a guide here: http://help.komoot.de/knowledgebase/articles/1854559-what-are-off-grid-routes-segments

    We truly hope you enjoy this feature! And if you’ve got any feedback, please let us know—we’d love to know what you think.

  9. Open GPX from ios share

    I wanted to check if Komoot doesn't screw up a gpx when imported through the Komoot iPhone app.

    So I opened WhatsApp and looked up the GPX file shared in one of my cycling groups, this was a file for a group ride (The same file I tried to import via the website but that ended up FUBAR).

    After I found it, I downloaded it to my device and I pressed the share button.

    To my surprise I didn't see Komoot between the sharing options, I did see Wahoo Elemnt, but I had hoped it was possible to import a…

    Dear komoot fans,

    As promised last week, this feature is now live and ready! Now, you can import any GPS file (GPX, TCX, FIT) directly into the iOS app from your phone’s file, via Garmin Connect, from your Wahoo account—as well as via the share extension native to all iOS and Android devices.

    We truly hope you enjoy this feature! And if you’ve got any feedback, please let us know—we’d love to know what you think.

  10. Create ipad app

    Hi there, I have a desktop Mac but I mainly use my iPad and iPhone as I'm often not at home- any works in the pipeline for an iPad app? I really like the iPhone one but basically one that was the same but could be used both landscape and portrait on iPads would be great for planning routes as of course there's more screen space.

    Cheers!

  11. Garmin Fenix Support planned?

    Hi,

    I regulary use komoot for biking trips. But using the smartphone wasn't always the nicest way.
    Garmin now has an interesting watch, the Garmin Fenix
    https://buy.garmin.com/de-DE/DE/p/560327

    Is komoot planing to support Garmin Watches in some way?

    Thank you so much,
    best

  12. Do not confuse movable bridge and ferry crossing

    Hi, this short tour leads across a movable bicycle bridge: https://www.komoot.com/tour/15911324?ref=wtd
    But Komoot incorrectly marks it as containing a ferry crossing.
    The OSM tagging is correct.
    Could you correct this?

    Hi Alberto

    let komoot set the pause automatically – in this case we are able to deduct the paused time from the time in motion via GPS. So don’t pause manually, and komoot will pause itself if you don’t move for longer periods of time.

    Best wishes

  15. Problems with bridges in Copenhagen

    When planning tours in Copenhagen, some bridges are impossible to cross. Examples are Inderhavnsbroen (1401 København K) and Bryggebroen (1561 København V).
    The routing algorithm goes to the middle of the bridge, and then continues on the ferry route passing under it! (Quite funny, but not very useful.)
    It would be good if you could do a QA on your data base regarding these points.

  16. Include ferries in routes

    When planning routes that include ferries (as marked on the map), the ferry should be included as part of the route.

    What is happening right now is the route is calculated by road only, so there is a lot of back tracking to be done within the plan.

    Hi everyone

    in general, we are using ferries on komoot.

    Among others, we are using the data of Openstreetmap, a type of wikipedia for trails. Everyone can help and add missing paths to that data base, which makes the amount of entered paths and POIs increase bit by bit.

    The data will be incorporated into our map on a regular basis and can ultimately also be used for planning tours (at the moment it takes about 1 weeks until the new data is available for route planning).

    If the paths displayed on the komoot map cannot be used on our routing or in this case the ferry, it is possible they have either not been correctly connected to the adjoining streets, or you are not allowed to use them via the chosen sport.

    To find out more about the project Openstreetmap or participate yourself, go here: http://www.openstreetmap.org. You can…

    Hi Veeni

    you can also do that – just open the app in the planning mode and you will see your current location. Tap on the map to make the planning panel disappear (Android) and see the full map.

  20. allow to turn off route guidance but continue track recording

    When I have to change the destination while following a planned tour I want to be able to stop turn-by-turn directions without at the same time stopping the tour recording. Currently if you stop guidance it also forces to stop and save or delete the recording.
    This must work while offline and online without having auto-rerouting on.
    Use case: e.g. you have a bike accident and use GoogleMaps to guide you to the nearest hospital you want to stop hearing conflicting voice commands from 2 apps, so you want to stop komoot guidance without having to stop tour recording.

    Hello everyone

    you can do that in the Android as well as in the iOS app.

    Android: Pause a Tour via the STOP Button (pull up). You will see the title of your Tour at the top, and on the right an X. Tap on it, and you’ll be asked if you wish to quit the navigation. The recording will be continued.

    iOS: Tap on the three dots on the bottom right, then choose “Pause Tour”. Now you’ll see a blue bar at the top, and above it a brief info on your tour (first/last way point), as well as an X to the right. Tap on it, and choose the function to continue the recording. The navigation will be stopped, but the recording will commence.

    Best regards
    Daniela
