  1. Support Windows with a Universal App

    I would like to be able to replace my current planning tool with Komoot but there is a huge problem with this and that is Windows support is missing across the board other than the web browser.

    Could you please create a universal touch based app that works across Windows PCs, tablets and phones? This also means devices like the Xbox and the new HoloLens could be supported .

    Garmin's BaseCamp is an old dog but still usable and Komoot has the opportunity to corner this market.

    Hello everyone

    unfortunately it’s not as easy as it seems to develop an app that works universally and reliably on all systems.

    In contrast to magazine or cookbook apps that only make use surface system features, we need to rely and tap into the optimized access of system-specific interfaces (GPS, compass, RAM, background processes, language). To offer you the best possible product, we are therefore currently optimizing our app specifically for the respective systems, at the moment Android and iOS. Only in doing so, we can ensure you are safely guided even without internet connection if you are out in the outdoors.

    Only when we are able to meet these standards for another system, in this case Windows, we’ll start developing our app for that one as well. Unfortunately that’s not the case right now, and that’s why we haven’t yet planned a new version optimized for…

  2. Rename way points

    It would be great to rename waypoints so when looking at the map and waypoint list you can see meaningful waypoint names.

    eg instead of "waypoint #1" you could have "1 - Berlin Bahnhof".

    Hello everyone,

    that’s a very interesting idea. Realizing it however would be a highly complex process, which is why we cannot consider it at the moment,

    If you use POIs and Highlights for planning, these will however retain their names which is also shown on the map view of the app, when you tap on the waypoints (in your example you could use Berlin central station as a POI to plan your Tour).

    Thank you very much for your understanding!

    Best regards
    Daniela

  3. Share current location while on a ride

    This helps primarily with safety in case you are hurt and cannot move. It also helps communicate with friends who cannot start the ride with you but can catch up at the current location you are.

  4. add tools for multi-day trips

    komoot invests a lot in proposing multi-day tours, such as for crossing the alps.

    I just did a 40+ multi-day trip from the Baltic to the Mediterranean and would like to be able to add all the days together easily to see the total stats, such as distance, elevation etc. for the whole journey.
    Also just visualizing the whole journey on one map would be so beautiful and useful for myself and other users.

    Hi everyone

    thanks a lot for the feedback!

    Completed recordings are a little different from planned Tours, and thus making them editable is not as easy as it might seem. At the moment, we’re not planning any changes here however.

    What you can do is replan one of the Tours via “Plan similar”, download it as a GPX file (“Download to GPX device” on the website) and upload it again as a recorded Tour (“Import” on our website) to see the entire track you made.

    Best regards
    Daniela

  5. Undo / redo in plan mode.

    Hello,
    I often add/remove/move waypoints when I create a new running plan. Having undo/redo for every changes in plan mode will help a lot test and adjust my plans.
    Thanks,
    Gilles.

    Hello everyone,

    the back button of your browser enables you to undo each action you carried out while planning a Tour. That way you can undo every step at any time, and then keep planning as you like.

  6. Include waypoints when exporting as GPX

    Background - I use and love to use Komoot to plan my runs and hikes (tramps in New Zealand) but I then export to my devices (GPS, Watch etc) when I use that info.

    If I create a tour with a number of waypoints and export the tour as a GPX file, the track breadcrumbs are exported but not the Waypoints. This of course is very annoying as I get to use an awesome planning tool but can't use the data. Currently I need to export from Komoot then import into another tool (Sunnto MovesCount, Garmin BaseCamp) to add the…

    Hello kiwiant,

    thank you again for the interesting idea!

    We still have it on our list, but at the moment there are no plans to make any changes to the GPX features. Should this be the case at a later stage, we’ll give you an update here of course!

  7. Intergrate the search facility with Warmshowers network

    Have the ability to search for a Warmshowers hosts directly from the map search function.
    Perhaps there could be a setting in the menu that allows you to sign in to your Warmshowers account, then this enables the search function to include Warmshowers hosts.

  8. I want to be able to choose the language of the audio navigation

    As I am English, I like everything in English but the american you are using as the navigation audio is absolutely useless at pronunciation of street names and places with anything in Germany/Austria/BeNeLux/France. I think it should be possible to select the language you wish to have for the audio on the navigation. I can do that on my car navigation without much more than a touch of a button. Being able to select German for Germany, maybe Dutch for Holland and so forth, would be amazing as I may be able to actually understand the street names instead of…

    Hi everyone,

    that’s an interesting idea. However, to enable such a feature, we would have to switch the language depending on the country you are in to the language spoken in that country – only for the street names, to ensure the rest of the navigation advice remains understandable.

    Not all languages are currently supported via text-to-speech on both Android and iOS devices, and the feature itself is a highly complex one. We are therefore at the moment not able to realize it, I am afraid.

    Best regards

  9. Metric units should be default also for English

    I know most English speaking countries use imperial units, but since your app only offers a choice between English and German, the English profile should account for everybody that doesn't speak (or doesn't prefer) German. And then the majority of "English" users prefer metric over imperial. Therefore the English default should be metric, not imperial.

    Hello everyone

    we can only offer offline maps for the komoot map, and optimize our own maps for the app likewise. Adding further map layers is therefore currently not planned in the app.

  11. Archive old routes

    My tours list shoes a whole bunch of routes that I created for a trip. Now that that trip is over I don't want them showing on my main list.

    It would be great to be able to flag these as archived so I can access them later if needed. Another option could be the star the ones I want to see regularly as favourites.

    Thanks

    Hello kiwiant,

    thanks a lot for the idea! If you don’t want the Tours showing at all anymore you can always download the GPX files, and then delete them from your list of planned Tours. In case you need them again, you can upload them anytime you like.

    For an easier overview, you can now filter all Tours on our website via the search field on the right-hand side.

    Should we be planning other sorting features here, we’ll update and change the idea and keep you posted.

    Best regards
    Daniela

  12. To have the option to use real satellite maps

    Like in endomodo. The option to switch between regular map and a satellite one.
    Thanks.

    Hello everyone

    due to different, such as copyrights, we currently can only offer the Satellite view on our website, not inside the app. On our website, you can however switch to Google Satellite via the map layers button on the right-hand side of the screen.

  13. Triathlon Feature

    The possibility to set current sport during a recording, the same way that a user can add a photo without stopping the recording.

    This would be useful for users who do multiple sports/exercises in one same outing: ride and run for example.

    Hello Fernando

    thanks a lot for this interesting idea!

    As the types of Tours are differentiated based on the sports you use, this idea is not easy to realize and therefore not planned at the moment,

    What you can do at the moment is save the Tour as “Other” when you have completed it, and mark the types of sport you used in the comments.

    Should we be able to realize it in the future, we’ll give you a respective update here however.

  14. Printing suggestions (web)

    Ok so printing is old school but sometimes its needed especially for a reference for something like a trail run or quick reference.

    The current print feature is nice and simple. I love how it but I Have a few suggestions which would make it better (for my use at least):
    1. Remove all the borders and white space from the printed output (for more for map)
    2. Option to remove the headings (Komoot, link, name of route)
    3. Option to remove the planned by you
    4. Option to change orientation (some maps just work better in landscape)
    5. Show…

  15. region

    Offline Region Download browser.
    As it is now in the App, I have to find a town or village with the search feature, then i get the region in what this town is. It would be much more convenient if I could select a Continent, then the country, and then I get all regions it has as a list.
    eg.:
    Europe -> Switzerland -> Zürich
    Nordschweiz
    Bern
    Suisse Romand
    etc. …

    I was just having quite a bit of pain, making switzerland, and all its neighbouring regions all available offline on my iPhone.

    Hello everyone

    there are no further plans at the moment to further adjust the regions area.

    When you are in a region, we’ll always show you the suggested maps for download in the regions area, based on your current location.

    When planning tours, you can directly download them to your device, so you are all set for your next adventure, for instance, when going on vacation.

    Enter a town name into the region search on the app por our website, and we’ll show you which regions are available here.

  17. Tracking without Turn by Turn Navigation for Offline Tours (iOS)

    I uploaded a tour (GPX file) from another site and set it to offine on Komoot. I wanted to record the ride exactly based on the route but not necessarily run the turn by turn navigation for the sake of battery life. I could not find a way to record the offline route without switching off the turn by turn navigation. So, I started a separate recording. The only way to look at the offline route was to pause the recording and look at it the offline route via the profile menu.This meant I had to click a lot to…

  18. 3D view

    a 3D map development is unfortunately very complex and thus yet not realizable for us. We keep developing our Outdoor map however, and include every more details and will look into improving the rotation into direction of travel in the future.
