Bring the map to life with Trail View photos

Trail View brings the lines on the map to life with user-sourced photos of the trail curated by an advanced image-detection algorithm. Showing up as green dots on the new Trail View map layer on komoot.com, these images give hikers, gravel cyclists and mtb riders a visual on what that trail actually looks like, allowing you to plan more accurately for your adventures. Now you’ll be able to make better-informed decisions about whether a specific trail is suitable for your sport and/or experience level. Plus you and your friends on komoot will have an extra reason to get excited as you visualize what awaits you on your adventure. 

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.
