Anyone who loves the outdoors will love Komoot, the perfect app for finding routes suited to your preferences and needs. With the ability to adapt to your level and the goals you set for each location, this app can show you possible routes with real-time navigation to help you achieve your aims. Komoot works best for hiking and biking on roads or trails. The app includes topographic maps so you can see what kind of terrain you'll be facing at all times. It also has voice navigation to help you focus on what's in front of you instead of having to look down at the screen. To begin any route, select whether you're on foot or biking. Then mark your point of departure and arrival and click on the 'start' button. Next you'll see photos of the landscape and relevant information such as the terrain, difficulty, distance, and elevation of the route. As long as you keep Komoot open, it will register your progress so you can plan other routes depending on your results. Once completed, you can share your experience with other users with photos and reviews so other people can make the same trek.
