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.

New: Report spam profiles at the tap of a button

In order to give you an even safer experience on komoot, we’ve added the option to report other users and spam profiles at the click of a button. To do so, just open the profile of the person you want to report on the web or in the komoot mobile apps and select ‘block or report’. We'll investigate all reports logged by komoot users and take necessary action depending on the account. This includes account deletion.  

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. 

You can now see other users’ personal Collections in your feed

As we believe you follow people on komoot for a reason, we thought it would make sense to start showing you the personal Collections of people you follow in your feed. So we did: The next time you visit your news feed in the komoot apps or on komoot.com, you’ll see the best personal Collections from your community — perfect for starting the next big conversation or for finding even more inspiration for your own adventure.

No longer see routes buried under a sea of waypoints when planning on Android, iOS and at komoot.com

So you can better see where your route goes, we’ve implemented a small design change which prevents your route from being drowned under a sea of waypoint markers when planning on Android, iOS and at komoot.com. With this new design, waypoints markers take up less space on the map, allowing you to better see the route underneath them. But don’t worry; they’re still instantly noticeable when you want to find them again: Just zoom in on your route to see them pop up on the map. 

Planning longer Tours just got much faster

Planning a long hike or an extended bikepacking trip? Well, we’ve got good news: We’ve increased the reaction time of the planner by a factor of 15, meaning on-screen loading times are drastically reduced when adding multiple waypoints/editing longer Tours. To try it out, head to the route planner at komoot.com or in our Android and iOS app now — and plan your next big adventure faster than ever before.

Do you use a Garmin for navigation? Then this one’s for you.

We’ve made a host of improvements to the komoot for Garmin app to improve your experience of the app on bike computers, watches and handhelds:

  • Got a big adventure planned? We’ve made it possible to download and navigate longer Tours. Whereas previously you may have been asked to divide these into multiple stages, we now optimize your route based on the capability of your device, so every type of Tour can be downloaded to your Garmin.
  • Additionally, we’ve also made it easier for you to understand what to do when things go wrong: Now, instead of short (and, frankly, unhelpful) error messages, we’ve added links to in-depth support articles that’ll open on your phone, so you can understand precisely what you need to do to get your Garmin back on track.
  • To enhance the experience on low-memory devices, such as the Fenix 5, we’ve also polished some code to prevent crashes when browsing Collections and Highlights on your device.
  • Finally, we’ve squashed numerous bugs to give you an all-around smoother and crash-free experience when using the komoot for Garmin app.
