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. 

Planning routes on Android just got easier — thanks to a more intuitive toolbar

We’ve added a handy toolbar to the planning screen in the komoot Android app to make your route planning experience on smaller screens easier and more intuitive than ever before. This brand-new toolbar, which is visible along the right-hand side of the planner, lets you seamlessly access and control all planning functions, be it setting a roundtrip, changing the map layer, or scrapping your route entirely. For additional control, we’ve also added undo/redo buttons, so you can revert your Tour to an earlier state if you ever change your mind. So you can better see the map while you plan, we’ve also added the option to temporarily hide your route, giving you easier access to terrain details, street names and singletrack/hiking trail ratings. 

Not on Android? Other platforms will follow soon.

Embed Highlights on your website or blog

So you can better share your favorite Highlights with your readers, visitors or customers, we’ve made it possible for you to embed Highlights on your own website. Previously only available for Tours or Collections, just click on ‘Share’ on the Highlight you want to embed and select ‘Embed’. You’ll then see the code you need to add to your website’s backend (e.g. WordPress), as well as a bunch of options that will let you define how it should look. Click here for more information.
