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)
With this feature, if I plan a tour, I could chose for example a default hiking profile or my custom hiking profile and still chose the fitness level to influence the tour time.
thanks a lot for this interesting idea!
We’ll see what we can do to implement it. Should there be any plans here, 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.

This is an excellent idea. I feel there is too big a gap between "In Good Shape" and "Athletic" for road cycling.
As the famous saying goes: "It never gets easier, you just go faster".
They thing is I just planned a 150km tour. I know I can easily do 25km/h - perhaps 26.
The problem is that the "In Good Shape" profile suggest me an 23km/h average, whilst Athletic is on nearly 29!
So, I cant't think I am on my own - where the proposed average speeds are an excellent option to start, but being able to create our own averages - or perhaps Komoot could calculate them based on our very own historical data. perhaps, you could add this as a "brownie point" : the more we use your app, the more we give positive feed back : the more features you add to us, your best advocates ;-)
