Time in motion on komoot
There are two different time measurements for Tours recorded on the komoot app. One of these is the total time on the Tour. This is calculated based on when you start the Tour and when you stop it. The second measurement is the “time in motion.” This takes into consideration any breaks you take while recording a Tour, in which your GPS location didn’t change. By default, the time in motion is the measurement that is displayed in your Tour list.
Switching between time in motion and total time
You can switch between the time in motion and the total time by opening the completed Tour and tapping on the time. You can also view the total time in the elevation profile.
Currently, it is not possible to switch and view the total time on the iOS app. Please open your Tour on our website instead.
You can switch between the time in motion and the total time by opening the completed Tour and clicking on the time.
Calculation of time in movement
Komoot recognizes when you take a break during a Tour. If you stop for a few seconds, the recording will be paused automatically. It will continue when the app recognizes via the GPS signal that you are moving again.
If you have a steep ascent, it’s also possible that the app considers this a pause. In this case the GPS signal cannot determine when you make progress because there is little or no movement on a horizontal level. The time in motion, the duration and the average speed of your Tour might not be completely accurate. This will also happen if you lose GPS signal during your Tour.
Time in movement in imported Tours
This value is available for Tours that are recorded with the komoot app on your phone. If you import a Tour that was recorded via another device or as a GPX file, the value shown will usually be the total time.
