We’ve improved how you add, remove and manage Tour photos on iOS

So you can better share your favorite moments with your friends and followers, we’ve drastically improved the Tour photo management flow on iOS. Now, you can more easily take photos whilst on a Tour and manage which of these gets added to your Tour/Highlight once you’re done. Additionally, following some privacy changes implemented by Apple, we’ve also included helpful hints that better describe why you might not be able to find the photos you want to add and what you can do to fix these issues.

Cropping planned Tours just got a whole lot easier

So you can better customize planned Tours and imported GPX files, it’s now possible to crop Tours at the click of a button at komoot.com. Taking our inspiration from video editing suites, all you need to do is define the portion of the route in the elevation profile you want to keep and then click on the crop icon to crop the rest. Easy, right? Try it out at komoot.com now.

Say hello to Google Street View: Now available at komoot.com!

So you can better see where you’ll be exploring, we’ve added Google Street View to the komoot map. Visible at the click of a button, it lets you see real-life pictures of the roads comprising your route, long before you get there yourself. This way, you’ll always know just how good the views are from that spot you’re thinking of stopping at for lunch and you can check long in advance how safe the cycling lanes look. 

Ready to give it a go? Plan your next adventure at komoot.com/plan now and simply tap on the Street View icon to zoom in. 

Introducing Live Tracking, komoot Premium’s newest feature!

Because sharing is caring, we’ve added a brand-new feature to komoot Premium: Live Tracking. Now, you can share your live location with others while you record a Tour, and give them access to extra safety insights like the route you’re following, your phone’s battery level and your expected finish time. For complete control, you can also set safety contacts: People who will have automatic access to your live location when you start recording a Tour (and Live Tracking is enabled), or you can choose to share a link to your location manually in the app. 

If you’re already on Premium, head to the Premium tab to give it a go. Or head to www.komoot.com/premium/live to find out more. 

Share your Tours directly to Instagram

It’s now possible to share completed Tours directly to Instagram, all at the tap of a button. Choose what you want to share — be that a map of your adventure, your favorite photo, the all-important stats of your Tour or all of the above — and komoot will create a beautiful Instagram-ready template that you can share as a post or Story. Select a Tour from your completed Tour list now to try it out. 

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 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!
