    Fantastic app. I just completed my first ride following the app. I picked a random highlight, set it to "mountain bike" and off I went. I didn't realise how beautiful my local area is. Planning my next outing. Really impressed. Totally considering the premium version. Not because I need it, but because the developer deserves my money! ;)

    I would give it a 3,5. It is a great app, not perfect but really good, and plans way better routes than ie Strava. But it is not free. Sadly, you have to pay 9 bucks per region (a region is about 50 km in diameter) and 30 for the whole world. And when you just start out, you don't want to pay so much to test out, and realise you don't want the app. My advice would be, to find a voucher somewhere and sign up with that link to get a free region to start with. It is not free though, keep in mind.

  • Perfect for bike touring Apr 5, 2018

    Pros: it works well. The reason I downloaded is for its voice navigation along a user defined route ... the only app I’ve found that does so without an annual subscription. Most can only navigate a route it calculates. The mapping tool online works well and is easy to use. Save a created route and it automatically becomes available in the mobile app. Routes created elsewhere can be imported and edited. Cons: when importing a gpx route, it can get altered by Komoot if the route goes someplace not on Open Street Maps, which Komoot uses. The good news is you can edit Open Street maps yourself to correct the map. Nitpicking: voice navigation below a mile is given in feet instead of tenths of a mile. Example: 3900 feet instead of .8 miles.

    It is a very good app to show footpath for hiking which you normally would not be able to see in Google maps. However we used it to plan a hiking path in the lake district but realized that many shown footpath are actually not really able to be achieved unless you are "professional climbers". This is not very convenient for normal people as the trip ended up much longer than we thought.

  • Poor UI design May 4, 2018

    By Chuckji
    I find it very hard to mark out easy routes. When I set a start point on the map it takes me back one page to click on the destination input box, which takes me to yet another page before finally going back to the map. When returning to the map, my start point is not displayed and it appears to have forgotten it. It hasn’t but it feels that way. The biggest text is “Plan New Route” which reinforces the feeling that I’ve lost my starting point. At the top of the page in smaller print is the text “Tap the map to add a point”. I guess this structure is useful if you have no idea where you are going, only know places of interest, etc. When I want to follow a specific route with the goal of creating a route for my bike computer, the app often redraws the route to a shorter path which is not what I wasn’t. Maybe this isn’t the right app for what I want, I get that. But it shouldn’t be so difficult to do something easy.

  • Unsafe routing for bikes Jul 18, 2019

    By Jr314159
    Usually I use ride with gps for offline bike route planning, but I'll be going on a long tour and won't have access to a computer so I thought I'd try Komoot for bike route planning on the go. So far I've found it does not choose bike friendly roads, in fact it routed me on a busy road with two lanes of traffic in each direction, no shoulder, and not even any sidewalks. Their help suggested I could improve routing by editing osm map data, which I did for this street, but I found even after my changes, Komoot continues to route on this unsafe road. I contacted support since even Google maps provides better bike-safe routing for this particular route and asked for an explanation, since as an app specializing in bike routing I would expect they'd do better. Their response: "Hi, our system is always looking for the fastest connection between your waypoints, allowed for the chosen sport. You can then customize this suggestion. On your PC you can display the Open Cycle Map to plan with cycle paths.
" So, no apology for risking my life on a dangerous road or recognition that the fastest route between two points may not be desirable for a bike. Very disappointing, especially since I already paid for their maps.

    Since the above review I have tried this app again, and again I am disappointed . I want to plan a route with a bicycle having already tried the route. I set way points along the route that I want to plan, but Komoot keeps jumping around the map and will not accept my request for fixing a waypoint. What is the use of having a planning tool if it is not going to work??

    I thought this would be more useful than Garmin for planning gravel routes. I tried creating a gravel route from my house to a coffee shop just off a bike path. Taking the canal trails is actually shorter than city streets but the app chose to map a course that was 100% busy city roads. Then I tried making a route that started and ended at the canal trail entrances so it should have mapped completely on the trail. Nope! About halfway through it jumps off the trail and onto high traffic city roads with no shoulder. LOL! The map detail seemed better than Google maps so I thought that might make the app salvageable but I couldn’t find a way to manually plot your own course. This app was a waste of time. Now I’m sure I’ll be getting their junk emails for the rest of my life because I signed up for an account. Yay.

  • Free app ok, but don't pay for routes Nov 6, 2019

    By CyclistMonkeyReader
    After test-mapping a long trip route, I signed up for Komoot's lifetime full access to all maps, then plotted two long trips and saved them in my account. The trip routes were in my account for a couple weeks, then suddenly Komoot deleted my account entirely the day before I was leaving on one of the trips. Thinking it was just a bug, I re-signed up, but my routes and subscription were still gone. I wrote support, and got no response. Weeks later, Komoot responded that they never deleted the account, have no record of my payment, nor of me having created or saved any routes, and they refuse to provide a refund. Since they are not in USA, there is no way to compel them to fix the issue or refund my payment, and they seem to know that.

    Disappointed with the planning aspect of Komoot. I've planned routes with it and it has real difficulty in sticking with my suggested edits. One example was a route that required a major reroute change but Komoot said no. It insisted that I had to cycle up a steep and dangerous gradient. Strava on the other hand - flawless and permitted me to create the safest route I wanted with no fuss. Sticking with Strava from now on - Komoot really need to revisit the user editing functionality.

  • Love the app! Jun 23, 2019

    By citrussqueeze
    Pros- the app makes it very easy to plan rides. I like that I can see the miles and elevation gains before I leave my house. It’s nice knowing what I’m getting into for the trip. I also like that I can download the maps after I plan the ride. You can still use the gps directions even when you don’t have service. Cons- it can be tricky out figuring out how to plan your trips. There are a lot of options so it can be a bit cumbersome finding what you need. Easy to navigate once you figure it out though. Also they do charge you per area after your first download. But it’s worth the it!

  • Very good Mountainbike navigation app! Highly recommended!!! Jun 9, 2019

    By doc2b88
    I ´ve tried many apps for creating individual Mountainbike routes at home and use the navigation system offline because of the lack of connection in the Austrian Mountains and mostly got disappointed . But this app fulfills all my criterias for guidet Mountainbike fun. Even if I take a wrong turn in the woods ,it finds an alternative track to guide me safely to my chosen destination! I am glad i found this app! It is soo much more fun to ride the mountains without having fear to get possibly lost or head all the way back uphill if you took the wrong turn. Thank you Komoot !!!

  • Great app May 22, 2020

    By Rentin34
    The ongoing pandemic has changed so much of our lives, from going to the supermarket to a stroll around the block - with this app I have discovered you don’t have to go far from home to get that outdoor, open feeling again. Some amazing hikes just a short drive or train ride. The app works well with the Apple Watch too - instead of looking at your phone all it takes is an occasional glance at your watch to ensure you are on track. A further map integration on the watch will be an added plus - hopefully coming soon!

    Installed this after disappointment with a different tracker app. This is good. Quite intuitive and best of all, it doesn't drop out halfway through a ride. I haven't delved into it too deeply yet and am unsure whether to look at the paid for version. But this is good. It does everything I currently need. I'm only just getting back into cycling and this app is certainly helping me keep track of my progress and improvements. But it absolutely hammers the power. You need a fully charged battery.

    This app is great, it's a fantastic planning tool & love that you can adjust walking speed (I'm a quick walker & this is the only app that lets me accurately predict how long a route will take me). Would echo what I've read on other reviews - the discover function could be amazing but I can't see a way to search for others' routes or see ones that actually relevant to where I live so it feels like a missed opportunity.

    Pros : I use this app a lot for short and long distance bike rides. It's easy to load gpx files and edit them directly on the phone. No need to go on a website, which is a time saver and great when traveling. Cons : It drains the batteries of course... It's best to set the phone on airplane mode with only the GPS signal on. Also, I cannot stand that it takes 5 clicks to save a tour. All these useless questions are asked before saving, very annoying. Please disable this, pretty please! Merci :)

  • Impossible to Plot your Own Route Jun 16, 2020

    By AJP III
    Neither the One Way not the Round Trip will allow me to plot the exact course I want to ride. When I get close to, or go back over an area where I have already mapped part of the route, it ignores all the intervening waypoints and replots a new course. That may be the most efficient path to ride to include all the waypoints, but that is not the route I want to take! The app needs a 3rd option which just follows whatever waypoints a person enters, no matter how inefficient it appears to the route finding algorithm! Let me know when you add that option, and I will revisit the app! Thanks! Update - I received a prompt reply from the developer, which was nice. There IS a way to have it plot your route, rather than “it’s” route. It is a bit cumbersome, but each time you enter the next waypoint, if you hit “Set as new end point”, it will make them sequential. However, as you are laying out the route, it will jump around, making apparent route changes. Ignore those and persevere. When you are finished, it will have plotted out your route. I have only upgraded to 3 stars, because I haven’t had a chance to use the app on the road and further assess it.

    Good app for route planning, and the routes sync well with my garmin watch. 2 problems for me with the app: why can't I search for routes others have completed on the map, as I can on the website? Secondly, the 'discover' tab. It's great for finding places to go, but why can't I search for a specific region? It seems like the regions are algorithm-suggested, and sometimes you don't find the one you're after.

  • Plan tour feature very clumsy Apr 7, 2018

    By pittsburgh's own little bleeding heart
    I have mixed feelings about this app. I love that it shows smaller trails that Google maps doesn't feature (dirt bike trails and such), but when I try to making a long circuitous route using them in order to pack in the miles, the route recalculates in the most nonsensical way. It renumbers the points I've added so that the second point becomes point seven (or similar); it reroutes me to take a long winding detour through a playground at the park entrance that runs near a straight sidewalk; its display of map with the route waypoints isn't functional for editing; and the whole thing is so frustrating that I never use the app except as a reference for those smaller trails I mentioned. Bit of a waste of potential, really.

    Best outdoor app ever, but not perfect. Navigation for hiking and road biking on point. Nailed it :) Improvement ideas: In navigation mode and in the menu there is this top bar menu which you can flick through. Would be good when I'm on the last menu point, I can go to the first with flicking left once more. For road biking it would be good to show the height profile somewhat bigger, maybe own menu point that takes half of the screen or possibility to show a zoom view of it. The UX of the app is not good and inconsistent. 1) I couldn't import a GPX file on the app on my phone but it worked with the website. On the phone the GPX file was greyed out, so I couldn't choose it. Phone is Samsung Galaxy A70. 2) The information is all over the place and not compact and consistent in places where they belong. You need to introduce a proper start screen that shows options to proceed to. - Plan a route, in route planner there needs to be the option to import GPS data. Currently you need to choose "planned" or "done" menu points for data import which is just illogical. - Bottom bar menu point with three dots is just redundant. The information of that menu needs to be implemented into the profile, even more if you already bought the world pack. There's more. If you want me to help you improve, you can contact me any time, please see schleifenbaum.ch.

    I'm really struggling with this app. The route planning looks so simple to start with but it often can't find popular locations by name. When planning a loop by clicking segments, the fun begins! Closer you get to the end of the loop, it suddenly alters the entire route thinking you want to to begin where you want to end on, It's frustrating. The last route I tried to plan showed an 'as the crow flies' line across segments including the sea. Planning takes longer than riding!

  • Weird and worthless Sep 27, 2018

    By ursadog
    This app has a peculiar european vibe that makes it strange in my opinion. I am still trying to figure out what an "explorer" is and why I should care what Uwe is doing in the Bavarian Alps (probably a sport I am not interested in). I paid in-app to get access to cycling routes in my region, a major west coast city home to thousands of cyclists and many beautiful routes. Yet in Tours, I had to set the filter to 30 miles from my location to find...1 tour. Ridiculous. The only thing I like (and use occasionally) is the route elevation information which is not shown by my other reliable but simple ride tracking app.

    I downloaded and installed it, happy to have notifies on my Apple Watch. After the first road trip, I uninstalled it. I would be riding down a bike path with no turns possible for over a mile and the watch would contain us to say “turn in 30 feet.” I switched to looking at my phone as often as possible, which is better because of the moving map, but it would often go from “turn in 300 feet” to “turn around now” with no intersection in between. Part way through the trip I switched back to Google Maps (with no watch app) and I am much happier now.
