We’ve made our elevation profiles even more useful on web

So you can better plan Tours and review the ones you’ve already been on, we’ve made some huge improvements to our elevation profiles. 

  • Improved loading times and responsiveness: We reduced the loading time when planning a Tour by 90% (from around 1 second to around 0.1 seconds), giving you quicker access to the info you need. 
  • Tooltips for a clearer understanding of what you’ll encounter en route: Whereas previously you’d only see an icon denoting a potential obstacle along your route, you’ll now see a description of what the obstacle is when you hover over the icon with your mouse. 
  • Intelligent color gradings: So you can better identify how steep a particular segment might be, we’ve made the color changes more vivid. On cycling routes, for example, a segment will start to turn red when the incline is 10% or more. For hikes, this color change will begin at around 15%. This applies to both up and downhill segments — an addition that’s especially helpful when traversing challenging mtb trails or descending a mountain on foot.

We’ve improved how komoot works on Samsung Watches

In order to make your experience of the komoot app on your Samsung Watch better, we’ve made a couple of subtle yet important changes. Firstly, your Tours will now be automatically synced as soon as your watch detects an internet connection. This all happens automatically in the background, so you don’t need to reopen the app at any point to upload. Additionally, we’ve also resolved the connectivity issues some users faced when connecting with phones. Now, all you need to do is tap on ‘Connect Phone’ in the app’s main menu and follow the instructions to get started. You’ll then see the turn-by-turn navigation instructions displayed on your watch when navigating a Tour. 

Share private Tours with your friends with brand-new secret links

In an effort to help you keep your private Tours private, we’ve introduced a subtle yet important change. So that you no longer need to make Tours visible to anyone to share them with people not on komoot, we’ve made it possible to share direct links to private Tours. Just tap to share your Tour and enable ‘Visible to anyone with link’. We’ll then generate a unique URL to your Tour that you can copy and share with your friends. Anyone who clicks on this link can then see your Tour, whether they have a komoot account or not. 

You can now export GPX files directly from the iOS app

A feature that’s long been available on Android and web, we’ve made it possible to export your planned Tours as GPX files — all in one tap. Just go to the Tour you want to export and open the menu in the top right-hand corner to get started. Once downloaded, you can import your route into any GPS device or share it with your friends.   

Introducing Tour recommendations at your fingertips

You can now search thousands of Tours across the UK in your Discover feed. Komoot’s smart technology finds routes and Highlights near you to create hiking, riding and running route suggestions based on what the community has been up to. You’ll find the Tour search at the top of your Discover feed, then choose your sport and filter it by duration or difficulty level. Adjust the route to your needs and away you go on an adventure inspired by the community.

You can now select multiple photos from your camera roll on iOS

Want to add numerous photos to completed Tours on iOS? Thanks to our latest fix, this has become much easier. Whereas you could previously only select photos one by one from your camera roll, you can now select an unlimited number of photos to upload. Just edit your completed Tour, tap on ‘Add Photos’ and select the photos you want to add to your Tour.
