Major improvements for komoot and Garmin users

Potsdam 08.08.19, For immediate release

Komoot, the world’s leading route planning and navigation app, now brings additional value to its users who track their rides and hikes with Garmin devices. The new app is available for 40 Garmin devices including all Connect IQ supported EDGE cycling computers (520, 530, 820, 830, 1000, 1030**), all watches including Fenix 5 and newer (except Vivoactive 3), the Oregon 7 series and Gpsmap 66*.  

This major update to the komoot Garmin app provides users with the familiar komoot experience, on their Garmin devices: 

  • Tours that have been planned in komoot are easier to find on Garmin devices thanks to additional filtering (by date, location, distance, and sport)
  • Highlights that have been recommended or bookmarked on komoot are now easier to find on Garmin devices too, thanks to the same easy filtering
  • Highlights can be navigated to directly from within the Garmin device
  • Bookmarked komoot Collections can be viewed directly from within the Garmin device, and users can directly navigate tours in those Collections, or navigate directly to a highlight
  • Once the Garmin is offline, downloaded Tours and Highlights can be directly navigated

In short, this means your komoot profile content is synced across platforms: See the same details whether looking at komoot on your desktop, in the app on your phone, or on a Garmin device.
