  1. Make all sports selectable when planning a route / Add more sports for routing

    The current setup only allows me to choose hiking, biking (various types), and climbing as activities when I'm planning a route (see attachment). Could this be changed to include all sport options, such as running (all types)?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Hello everyone,

    We have now added “Jogging” as new routable sport to all our latest app versions and the website, so you can now plan your Jogging tours with komoot and share your favorite jogging tracks with other komoot users as Highlights.

    Regarding other sports: we only add new sports as routable sports when they can reliably used with our routing and followed with our voice navigation. That’s why we cannot easily make all sport types you can currently use to save your Tour as plannable sports.

    We are planning on adding further icons for requested sports here, such as water sports or riding, and will keep you updated when that is the case. When that is the case, you’ll be able to save your recorded Tour as a riding Tour for instance.

    Making water sports routable is an entirely different topic, and one we can at the moment not…

  2. Searching Tours / Tour search / Tour filter

    Tour search / filter in "Discover" interface and my own Tours

    Hello everyone

    thanks a lot for this interesting idea!

    On our website, you can now filter your Tour lists by entering a search term (the feature is found on the right hand side when you have opened your Tour menu). If you do that, only the Tours that include that term will be found.

    We’ll see what we can do to implement this also in the app versions. Should there be any news, we’ll post a respective update.

    Please mind that we are unable to give you exact dates here. If you have entered the idea or voted vor it, you’ll be informed via mail as soon as we have updated the status here.

    Best regards
    Daniela

  3. Intuitive Highlights / Add Highlight during a Tour

    This feature already exists in the app, but I think it can be improved and made more intuitive.

    I think it makes more sense for users to create highlights while on a tour (the same way they add a photo of something they like) and not after the 'wow!' experience has passed.

    After the tour is a moment most suited to edit and polish the highlights.

    Hello everyone,

    thank you very much for the interesting idea!

    With our latest Androud app version (6.9). we have updated the process of saving Tours, including that of saving Highlights created on them and using the photos you took during your Tour for that.

    We’ll see whether it is possible to further update that system with future updates of our app, and will keep you posted here.

    Best regards

    Hello David,

    in most regions, that is already possible (all of Europe except for Iceland, the USA and New Zealand for instance).

    We have some countries in which we are currently not able to offer regions, which is why we enable you to download planned Tours in that case.

    Best regards

  5. Show map layer with user photos

    When I am planning a trip I like to look at photos of an area on Google earth. Is there a way you could have a layer which includes photos from either Google earth or photos posted from other Komoot users?

    If we could upload photos, it might help to show interesting areas or technical sections or even difficult to find places. Photos need to be rated at least yearly to stay on Komoot so that useless photos do not clutter the screen. Only useful photos about the area remain.

    A photo can really help plan a trip. You can…

    Hi Nailsnglue,

    the feature you are asking for is already in part available with our highlights. As a komoot-user, you can mark specific highlights on a tour you made and add photos and tips to them. These highlights are then suggested to all users, who are planning tours in that area, and they can mark them as favorites and add them to their own tours. Using these highlights, you can now on the web-version of komoot make use of our “smart tours”: you choose a highlight, and our system suggests tours including that highlight.

    Got more questions about photos and highlights? Send us a mailt to help@komoot.de.

    Best regards

    Daniela

    Hi Nikoloz

    we are continuously making more countries available for offline tour planning, and will be adding your regions in the long run as well.

    We’ll update this idea when we are done. When that is the case, you will be able to plan tours and download them to your phone in the app for offline usage.

    Best regards
    Daniela
