    Hi everyone,

    We believe navigation directions at your wrist are an extremely useful case for smart watches, especially for outdoor activities. That is the reason we constantly invest in developing great apps and new features for various OS combinations such as the Apple Watch and many further smart watches.

    You’ll find an overview of our current options here: http://help.komoot.de/knowledgebase/articles/613362

    For Garmin iQ we provide a first solution with notifications (please also see the link above). However, we are not yet able to provide a full app that meets our quality standards. We will of course keep you posted here.

    Thank you for your understanding

    Best regards

  2. 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.

  3. Add landscape / widescreen mode

    I desperately need that landscape feature to use the app with my handlebar mount. Without the app is useless to me. Unfortunatley, cause it is actually great.

    Hello

    thanks a lot for this interesting idea! We have not yet been able to implement it, as this will affect all part of our app, both regarding the layout as well as our map material. This therefore would be a large update, that can unfortunately not be done on the sideline, but will be a bigger project.

    In case there will be changes in the future, we will keep you updated here as always!

    Hallo zusammen

  4. Merge two recorded activities / tours

    Sometimes I need to divide the tour in multiple parts (i.e the app crashes or something like that) and it would be nice to merge these in the webinterface

  5. Add next junction / action to voiceover

    The current voice navigation tells you something like "follow this way for x meters". I would like to know what happens after x meters.
    It would be awesome if it could say something like:
    "follow this way for x meters and then turn right" So I can look out for a junction or a path. Especially if you are in the forrest and the paths are not so obvious the voice navigation sometimes is to late so it would be awesome to know the next step in advance

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Use vibration alert during navigation / instead of voice navigation

    I like the idea of navigation, but quite honestly, it talks too much and I prefer to find my way with some assistance, but without being overly pampered.

    What I would like to see, is or or two new modes

    - a mode which just vibrates when one reaches a junction point (blue circle where normally it would make a voice announcement) so I know I need to look at the map where to proceed.

    - a mode which just vibrates (or uses voice warning or beep) if I get too far away from a track (e.g. miss a junction),…

  9. Display hiking trail / cycling route signs on map.

    When plannig a trip it would be helpful if the map would show signs of the official hiking paths (ie Eiffelsteig)
    Or take for example in the saxony switzerland: most of the path are labelled by color. Those labels would be very nice to see on the map.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Altitude Profile (in route planning) - gradient colours and zoom

    The altitude profile is critical to all bike riding. Presently this is difficult to view on the route planning page.
    1. Expand or zoom would be better to view in detail
    2. Colour coding for different ranges of gradient would be extremely useful

  15. Dutch version of komoot

    Just like for Spanish, Italian and other languages.
    Why not use the help from users for translation

    Hello,

    we are as yet unable to able to offer komoot in other languages than in German and English. We are looking into further solutions at the moment and hope to be able to provide komoot in other languages in the future. We can’t make any promises yet, but we will keep you updated on our progress if you vote on this idea.

    Kind regards,

  16. 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

  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

    currently we can not provide other languages than German and English yet. At the moment we think about possible solutions and chances to offer other languages in the future. But I can’t promise anything yet. You will be updated through your vote for this idea.

  20. 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
    Daniela
