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.

We’ve improved the route matching for GPX tracks

When you import a GPX file into komoot, we match the data to our route network and work to deliver the best navigation experience possible. After a series of crucial fixes based on feedback from the community, we’ve vastly improved this part of our product. Now, you’ll encounter fewer errors when importing a GPX file, and your uploaded route will more closely match the original GPX source. 

Introducing Collections and better Tour filtering on Samsung Galaxy Watches

Use a Samsung Galaxy Watch? If so, you’re now able to find and read all your personal and bookmarked Collections on your Samsung Galaxy Watch. Any Tours that those Collections contain can then be instantly navigated — all from your Samsung Galaxy Watch. 

Additionally, to make it easier for you to find your favorite planned tours, we’ve also included new filtering options, such as sport, date or proximity.

New range of privacy settings let you control how you share on komoot

To give you more control of your profile and Tour visibility, we’ve added new privacy settings so you can decide how you share your outdoor life, and with whom. 

Set your privacy zones

Setting privacy zones around places like your home, work or family member’s house makes these locations private. All start and end points within the zone stay hidden.

Create your privacy zones

Manage your followers

Just like you can choose your friends in real life, komoot enables you to manage your followers by creating a close friends list of the people you know and like best. Share with them and they’ll be the only ones able to see and interact with your Tours and Collections. Plus you can now block followers too. 

Manage your account privacy 

If you want maximum privacy for your komoot profile, you can make your whole account private. Only approved followers will see your profile, Tours and Collections, and be able to comment on your activities. 

Review your account visibility

Control who sees your content 

Want to keep your ride, hike or run to yourself, or only share it with your close friends? Now you can adjust the visibility of each Tour you plan or complete, or Collection you create. 

Adjust your default settings

Invite people to private Tours

Now you can keep your Tour private from your followers and invite your bestie to it. As part of the privacy overhaul, you can do both!

Use komoot turn-by-turn navigation on your Samsung Galaxy Watch

Use a Samsung Galaxy Watch to record your Tours? Well, we’ve added a brand-new ‘companion mode’ for your device, which allows you to better use your watch in sync with the komoot mobile app. With this new release, your watch will display komoot’s turn by turn navigation instructions after starting navigation on your phone. This allows you to see where you need to go at a glance while saving both your watch and phone battery. Need more info? Due to the two devices now working in sync, you can quickly take a look at your phone to benefit from the bigger map and the richer detail.  Standalone mode, which allows you to navigate and track Tours without being connected to your phone, is still available on your watch.

To set up companion mode, simply enable Bluetooth on both your smartphone and your Galaxy Watch and connect in the komoot app under Settings > Bluetooth Connect > Samsung Galaxy Watch.
