We’ve made our elevation profiles even more useful on web

So you can better plan Tours and review the ones you’ve already been on, we’ve made some huge improvements to our elevation profiles. 

  • Improved loading times and responsiveness: We reduced the loading time when planning a Tour by 90% (from around 1 second to around 0.1 seconds), giving you quicker access to the info you need. 
  • Tooltips for a clearer understanding of what you’ll encounter en route: Whereas previously you’d only see an icon denoting a potential obstacle along your route, you’ll now see a description of what the obstacle is when you hover over the icon with your mouse. 
  • Intelligent color gradings: So you can better identify how steep a particular segment might be, we’ve made the color changes more vivid. On cycling routes, for example, a segment will start to turn red when the incline is 10% or more. For hikes, this color change will begin at around 15%. This applies to both up and downhill segments — an addition that’s especially helpful when traversing challenging mtb trails or descending a mountain on foot.

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. 

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.
