Route warnings at a glance


This warning is shown on your route when you’ll need to take a ferry to cross a body of water. If you see this symbol, check ahead to find out when they’re running and how much your ticket will cost. You don’t want to be stranded or left waiting overnight for the next available trip!


This warning is shown on all routes that include an off-grid segment. These are sections of route that don’t adhere to komoot’s known network of roads, streets or paths. During off-grid sections, you won’t be given any turn-by-turn voice navigation instructions, so be sure to check the map.
