If you're planning your next adventure in an area with weak internet reception or want to save mobile data, you can either make your planned Tour available offline or, if you want to make an unplanned Tour, simply download the entire region. This way komoot can navigate you on your Tour or show your position on the map without an internet connection.

Note: To download a Tour or region, the corresponding region must be unlocked through a purchase or voucher.

Tip: For planned Tours, you only need to download the corresponding Tour data and not the entire region.

Save Tour data offline

Every Tour that is saved in your profile under Planned can be downloaded for offline use. For this to work, the region in which the Tour starts must be unlocked. If the region is not unlocked, you will automatically be shown which region is needed. Komoot will download the required map- and tour data and you can use them with the voice navigation offline. Therefore, follow these steps:

  1. Click on your Profile () in the app
  2. Tap on Planned
  3. Open the desired Tour
  4. Slide the Store for offline use toggle to the right

As soon as the toggle is green, the Tour is successfully downloaded. You can also recognize this in the Tour overview (Profile () > Planned), by the pin symbol (), which appears next to each downloaded Tour in the right corner.

Tip: If you want to use a completed Tour offline, save the completed Tour as a planned Tour first. To do this, open the completed Tour and use the option Replan This Tour in the web version and More () > Plan Similar Tour in the app.

Save map data for a recording offline

If you want to record a Tour – without navigation and without planning – you can store the map data for all on komoot available regions offline and thus have access to the required map material even without an internet connection. For this to work, the corresponding region(s) must be unlocked. This is how you download a region: 

  1. Click on More () in the app
  2. Tap Unlocked Packages or Manage your regions (depending on whether you have unlocked individual regions or the World Pack).
  3. Select one of the unlocked regions or search for a location using the magnifying glass icon ()
  4. Slide the Store for offline use toggle to the right

Note: If the region you want to download is not shown, find a workaround here: Region not available

Komoot Premium Click on Premium () > Offline maps > Select a suggested region or search for a location using the input field or magnifying glass icon () > Slide the Store for offline use toggle to the right.

Once the region is downloaded, you will see it under My offline regions (Premium () > Offline maps).

The offline maps will be automatically used during a recording in that area. You will be able to view the map data, as well as your location, progress and Tour data in the downloaded region without an internet connection.

Note: If the corresponding region is not downloaded when starting a recording, the map data is obtained via the internet. Depending on your internet connection, maps may not be displayed at all or not completely.

Tip: Do not start too many downloads at the same time, they can slow each other down. Make sure that the screen is active during the download. 

Attention: Logging out of the iOS app will remove all offline stored data. You can close the app at any time, but you should not log out. Reinstalling the Android as well as iOS app will also clear the downloaded map data.  

Where do I find my downloaded maps?

You can find an overview of your downloaded regions here:

  1. Click in the app More ()
  2. Tap Unlocked Packages or Manage your regions (depending on whether you have unlocked individual regions or the World Pack).

Troubleshooting

You didn't log out of the app, but still can't access your downloaded regions? Then it could be a problem with your SD card. This article explains more about it: SD card cannot be read
