Komoot is a route planning smartphone application that makes it easier for users to experience authentic outdoor adventures, whether road cycling, hiking, backpacking or mountain biking. First launched in 2010 as a navigational tool for cyclists and hikers, it now incorporates a whole range of different features, including offline maps, customizable routes and community sharing.

 

Undoubtedly, the aspect of komoot that sets it apart from other navigation tools is the ability to find roads and trails based on specific requirements. For example, the built-in route selector factors in variables such as fitness level, road surface, scenic views, points of interest and even places to stop for a bite to eat. This means that users can easily plan their ideal route without being hit by surprises, like a river or steep mountain climb, along the way.

 

Another good feature is the turn-by-turn audio and visual navigation available after selecting your route. I found the ability to simply plug in my headphones and go to be a great quality as it meant I did not have to constantly look down at my phone to find out where to go. This helped save battery and meant I did not have to keep pulling over when cycling to make sure I was heading in the right direction. The ability to download maps and routes to use offline is also an effective way of not only saving battery, but also avoiding eating into your data connection.

 

One downside to the app is that most of the trails and routes are not labelled by name or number but simply by a line. Although you can save the trails to go back to, you will have to find an alternative way of finding out their names to describe to friends and family.

Pros
  • Find routes based on specific variables
  • Turn-by-turn audio and visual navigation
  • Option to download maps and routes to use offline
Cons
  • No labelling on trails
  • Extra features cost $3.99 each

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
