  2. Skip describing and uploading of picture until after tour

    I'd like to be able to take pictures from the app but skip the description and uploading part.

    I guess this is related to
    http://help.komoot.de/forums/213895-ideas/suggestions/4289901-upload-tours-pictures-only-with-wifi-connection

    Though the saving of network traffic is one reason for this, I'm more annoyed by the time aspect. I usually go road biking in a group and am glad when I'm able to even take a picture. Then I might want to take a second picture but can't until I've uploaded the first.
    I can avoid this by using my own camera app, but when I'm recording on komoot, this app is already open and…

  3. 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.

  4. Collections for everybody!

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

  5. 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

  6. Having the map of tours on the tours page

    Hi again :)
    I would love to have the same map from the dashboard page on the tours page.
    Why?
    On the dashboard map, I see all my planed and completed tours.
    On the tours page a map on the right could show only the tours using the same filter as the selection for the list (all tours, planned or completed tours as well as sport type). It would be easier to find some tours that we did or planned without having to try randomly to click on them on the dashboard.

  7. Vector-based Maps

    It would be great if komoot could at some point in the future switch to vector-based maps to allow for faster download of offline my material and a better viewing experience when zooming in close and rotating the map, e.g. no upside-down labels when south is up.

  8. Add ability to translate user content

    Komoot has great user generated content but it comes in various languages.
    By adding in-app translation button it will become accessible to all users.

  9. Add voice commands/beeps to Apple Watch navigation

    Sometimes the vibrations alerting you about the change of direction are very subtle on the hand. Is it possible to get also beeps or voice commands, which are available on the phone? Normally I have the iPhone in the bag, off of my eyes, riding just with watches on my left hand.

  10. 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...

  11. 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)

  12. Garmin connect GPX files werden in komoot inkorrekt importiert.

    Garmin connect GPX files werden in komoot inkorrekt importiert. GPSies kann es und ist derzeit die einzige Möglichkeit, etwas - viel zu kompliziert - nach komoot zu übertragen. Warum ist diese Umweg Garmin connect GPX files werden in komoot inkorrekt importiert.
    Bitte fixed das. GPSies kann es, dann könnt ihr es auch.

    Gruß Ralf

    Das komoot Voting finde ich nicht wirklich zielführend.

  13. Display SAC difficulty in colors

    It would be great to visualise the SAC difficulty of planned tours by colour. This allows for quick assessment of the overall SAC difficulty, e.g. red for SAC 6 and green for SAC 1

  14. Find / Search User Tours in "Discover" area

    I've seen the button "private/public", but when I upload a tour and make it public, it can not be found amongst the tours in the "discover" area on your website. It would be great to be able to share tours with all users in the komoot community (like wikiloc does for example)

    Hello Dieter

    in the discover area (https://www.komoot.de/discover), you can currently only find the tours we’ve created based on our users’ recordings and Highlight suggestions. The reason for that is that we want to make sure the content is verified, and indeed recommendable. Our system only creates these tours when the tracks have indeed used by several users already.

    Not all users might also want to find their tours in our search – that’s why at the moment there is no direct user-tour search on komoot. Should there be any changes, we’ll keep you posted!

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  20. 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
