  1. 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.

  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 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.

  4. Link completed tour to planned tour

    As an example, some weeks ago I made a walk (https://www.komoot.de/tour/7359443) based on a tour that I planned a previously (https://www.komoot.de/tour/7336583). I would like to somehow associate both of them, so that I could mention that the planned tour was indeed completed and not having two completed different entries for the same path. I think that something like a tag, a flag system, or a relational field providing the link between both database entries would do the trick.
    I can imagine that the fact that only planned tours are supported for navigation can be an issue.…

  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. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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

  10. 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. Turn maps by 360 degrees

    It would be great to make the maps turnable 360 degrees in order to see a tour from different or more familiar perspective.

  12. 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…

  13. Discover: Filter tours by distance / elevation

    I'd like to filter tours on path length and altitude difference in the discover tab, e.g. "get all hiking tours > 25km and < 35km with at least 1200Hm

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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

  17. Connection with Facebook and Google+

    Connect the Komoot user with the Facebook and Google+ users, in order to be alerted when a new post from Komoot is related to a user tour.

    For example: when this https://plus.google.com/+komoot/posts/MhYPu416RKd from Komoot has been posted, I would like to be notified via Google+.

    Having this type of connection could be useful in order to spread better the tour via social networks.

    Thanks,
    Andrea

  18. Compass

    Hello dear Komoot staff,
    is it possible to have a compass into the map? Sorry if I was not able to find it if you have already put that.
    Thanks for your wonderful app, the best research and itinerary selection for a trekking app. Top!

  19. Show pace on plan page and list of tours

    On the Plan page there is the Fitness slider to help set the speed over the terrain. It would be great if the pace was shown as often I know what sort of pace I can do over certain terrain.

    An option to set the pace manually might also be good.

    Can you pls add marked trails to the map from OSM (from OSM route relations) best using cosmic:symbol, colour, etc)? There could be also option to prefer marked trails (but only as option) and selection of the type like bike, hiking trail, etc.

    What he have changed with updates already (that’s not what is requested here, but might be interesting to you regardless): single trails are now marked on the map according to their difficulty, (such as S1, S2), and you can see this on the map in the app and on the website. We are also now displaying fences and barriers directly on the map.
