Maps that make your adventures better

It’s makeover time at komoot, but instead of trying out a new bob or shaving the winter beard off, we’ve given the komoot map a new look. Because when enough people like you suggest improvements for the look and feel of it, the enthusiasm rubs off on us. 

We’ve updated a bunch of things behind the scenes, some more obvious than others.

Changes you’ll notice

See national parks at a glance thanks to sharper colors that make them stand out

Avoid private, forbidden, or closed roads and paths which are now marked with warning signs

Cycling paths are easier to spot – even when you’re zoomed out

Plan routes on smaller roads more easily with new road color-coding

Easy-to-spot railway lines make it simple to broaden your adventure horizons by identifying places with train stations

For adventures further afield, place names are now displayed in multiple languages.

How these changes support your adventures

The refined 2021 version of the komoot map puts the emphasis on adventure. Sharper colors and new color-coding mean the places that make for good adventures are visually clearer, so you can make a beeline for them when planning your Tours.

Try it out for yourself. Check out the new map in the route planner.

P.S. For those who want to go further, komoot Premium’s Sport-specific maps feature also gets a boost from the updated Maps. 

Updates include clearly visible international cycling and mountain bike routes, local cycling networks, IMBA trail ratings in the US, and official trail markers displayed on the map itself. Check out Sport-specific maps here.

    Will Komoot look at integrating with the garmin radar (rtl515 is what I have) with Varia built in. Would be nice if this overlapped you navigation screen.

    Die verbesserten Karten finde ich prima, erleichtern die Planung und Orientierung vor Ort.
    Leider findet das Programm nicht immer die “fahrradfreundlichste” Strecke, die natürlich sehr individuell geprägt sein kann. Für mich heißt das: Radwege, Natur, Steigungen beachten. Für bekannte Umgebungen kann ich das gut bearbeiten, für unbekannte hatte ich mich zu sehr auf individuelle Tipps verlassen – dabei bin ich an der zu trägen / ungenauen Navigation vor Ort gescheitert.
    Trotzdem – super Programm

    Zeer onder den indruk van Komoot en ook zeer blij. Mijn vrouw en ik kunnen nu nog meer genieten van onze wandelingen. Ik ben fotograaf in bijberoep en vind het zalig dat je de routes kunt highlighten met foto’s, jullie slaan voor mij 2 vliegen in één klap. knap werk, blijf ons verbazen Komoot 🙂

    Just started with Komoot – amazing software, really impressive. Even more impressive is the tech support – I messed up buying premium and they sorted it out really fast and really well. Top class!!

    Überhaupt nicht prima! Unter windows 10 funktioniert es bei mir nämlich nicht mehr. Ich habe seit dem update nur noch eine graue Fläche als Komoot-Karte, auf der zwar Sehenswürdigkeiten markiert sind, aber keine Wege, Straßen oder ähnliches. Da kann man nichts mehr planen.
    Miserables update!

  8. I have useing komoot on my cycling trip for over the last 3 years, sometimes also on the unsupported bicycle races that I hold, my response is that komoot are the best route planning application available today, thanks komoot.
