Komoot Premium just got better: Introducing Live Tracking!

Potsdam 22nd April 2021 - Komoot’s mission is to inspire great adventures making them accessible to all. And enabling people to have better experiences and greater confidence in the outdoors is at the heart of what komoot does. Now using the new Live Tracking feature from komoot Premium, cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts can explore with an added level of confidence, and share the peace of mind they experience with family and friends. Live Tracking lets users share their location in real-time from the road or trail, as well as extra safety insights such as the route they’re following, their expected ETA and phone battery level.

“Komoot brings together people who love to spend time outdoors, people who discover their local area in a new and different way, explorers of unknown places, and those who want to go further.” Says Philipp Regnat, Product Manager at komoot. “Komoot is a reliable companion to our adventurers and enables them to explore with peace of mind. With Live Tracking from komoot Premium, users can now share the peace of mind they experience in the outdoors with their family and friends.”

Because sharing is caring 

The brand-new Live Tracking feature from komoot Premium means adventure-enthusiasts never have to go it alone: The easy-to-use safety feature lets users share their location with friends and family whilst recording a Tour.

For real peace of mind

Extra insights, such as the route being followed, the ETA and the phone’s remaining battery level, give the user’s friends and family additional feedback in real-time — so they can see where their loved one is , how they’re doing, and when they should expect them home.


To keep phone battery consumption to a minimum, Live Tracking sends high accuracy location updates only when a user's family or friends are watching —  so users can fully enjoy their Tour and not worry about anything else.

Set safety contacts 

Additionally, users can manage the people who can see their location and make close friends into safety contacts. Komoot then takes care of letting these folks know when they head outdoors and grants them automatic access to the user’s live location.
