    Hello,

    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.

  2. 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.

  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. 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

    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

  6. 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…

  7. Hands-free cycling mode on Gear S2

    I want to be able to see a rotating summary of trip info at a glance on my smart watch whilst I am still cycling so that I don't have to stop or use my free hand to press any buttons which is dangerous.

    Hello Kimchioo,

    thank you very much for your idea! We will try to take it into consideration for further updates of the gear app.

    I cannot at the moment give you a precise date as to when that will be the case, but we will keep you posted via email here.

  8. 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.

  10. 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

  12. 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

  13. 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...

  14. 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) …

  15. Show waypoints on elevation profile

    On the Tour page the elevation is shown which is great but it would be nice to also have the ability to see the waypoints on this graph/chart making it easier to see the elevation at various key spots.

    Having more data on this graph would add clutter so perhaps something like a zoom link that shows the elevation on a new page with the waypoints added. Would be nice to see the elevation on the waypoints as well to make it clearer rather than looking at the elevation lines.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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

  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. 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),…
