    Id like to be able to see my top speed after ive logged a route.
    Sometimes im flying down a hill and would just be fun to know what i was doing

    I don't have a bike computer and tend to rely on tiny paper segments from online mapping sites. The only tip I would give is to try and have a look at really complicated junctions in urban areas on Streetview before you go. It jogs your memory when you get there. I once viewed all the 60 miles from the Hook to Amsterdam in advance on my computer screen. It turned out to be quite handy. Yes, yes, I know it's pretty sad.....

    Apologies, my mistake - I thought Komoot gave you maximum speed info, but it doesn't show you on the app or website. It does include the data when you export the GPX and upload to Strava or similar.

    Cyclemeter app definitely shows the data on the app.

    Go on the Komoot.com website (on laptop, tablet or phone using browser and without opening app)
    Click on your profile name
    Select Completed rides
    Select your completed ride title
    Select Export to GPS Device
    Save GPX

    Well I tried a few different ones though found one called plotaroute which has various features on it like inclines how long up hill sections plus gradients are and down hill too but in the end I use RWGPS and load straight into the garmin

    With komoot, say i upload a route to it but the start point isnt where i want it to be, but the route passes where i want to start, would it recognise that and still direct me?
    Does that make sence?
    Im having trouble just moving the start point

    Thanks sorted it now

    How comes strava is so much more popular than the other options? At least it is with people i know

    Does it offer something the others dont that im missing?

    I keep playing with it because i know people on there but just keep going back to komoot, it just seems so much better!
