Komoot collaborates with Garmin® to launch brand new app

Enabling route syncing, tracking and re-planning on-the-go with Garmin devices

Potsdam, 08.11.2017 - Komoot, Europe’s most popular cycling and hiking route planning app, releases its highly-anticipated app for Garmin. This development enables outdoor enthusiasts to seamlessly sync routes planned with their favorite route-planner to 15 different Garmin devices.

Once users download the free komoot app from the Garmin Connect  IQTM store and sign in to their account, all planned routes are immediately visible on their Garmin devices ready to be downloaded and tracked. Users can then use the komoot app for iOS and Android to reroute or replan their tours on the go, with every change being reflected immediately on their Garmin.

According to Nicolas Kral, Senior Product Manager at Garmin, “This partnership enables Garmin users all over the world to take advantage of komoot’s flexible, sport-specific route planner and will improve how millions of people experience the outdoors.
