Route planning and navigation app komoot has launched a new subscription-based, premium product, “tailored to its community members who wish to take their adventuring one or even two steps further”.
The new addition to the komoot range provides “the most specific tools needed to confidently enjoy a detailed, rich experience in the great outdoors, whether on foot or by bike”.
komoot Premium packages a range of new, specific features and costs €59,99 a year, while komoot ‘as you know it’ gets a new name: Komoot maps. Explorers can still purchase offline maps of individual regions for €3.99, bundles of maps for €8.99, and the global offline map package for €29.99. Existing purchases remain unchanged and komoot Map users will be offered €30 discount on Komoot premium in the first year.
Komoot Premium consists of five core features. Expect features to evolve and additional ones to be added as komoot continuously seeks to improve and respond to the requests of its community.
‘Dynamic weather forecasting covers every inch of planned tours, providing information about when the most optimal time frame for the upcoming adventure would be. A built-in wind indicator lets cyclists determine the most optimal direction for their outing, while a UV index and sunrise and sundown warnings advise whether sunglasses, extra clothing and lights would be a good idea.’
‘Tours and highlights, both completed or planned, can now be bundled into collections, making it easier for komoot users to sort and organize their favourite outdoor experiences. Showing the complete story behind the most epic adventures has never been more fun, and the ability to create a beautiful overview of upcoming adventures, has never been easier.’
‘Whether hiking, cycling or mountain biking is the chosen activity, komoot Premium sports-specific maps display detail relevant to that activity and remove the clutter. Official cycling and hiking routes and mountain bike singletracks together with their difficulty ratings, are highlighted on the map, making them easier to include them in tour planning.’
Plan longer adventures in one session, including accommodation – be it a bike-packing overnighter, hut-to-hut hike or full-blown ride across the Alps. The komoot Premium multi-day planner is a smart tour planner that removes the heavy lifting in planning tours that span multiple days, by breaking the distance into digestible stages based on total daily moving time. It provides a comparative overview of any tour changes made, and adjusts the route to and from the doorstep of your accommodation.
