Points of interest

Points of interest

A point of interest, or POI, is a special location, such as camping spot or vista along a trail, you can save and navigate to later. You can create POIs in Suunto Movescount or in your watch by saving your current location.

Each POI is defined by:

  • POI name
  • POI type
  • Date and time created
  • Latitude
  • Longitude
  • Elevation

You can store up to 250 POIs in your watch.

Adding and deleting POIs

You can add a POI to your watch either with Suunto Movescount or by saving your current location in the watch.

To add a POI with Suunto Movescount:

  1. Go to your watch settings on the Suunto Movescount website.
  2. Expand the Navigation section and then POIs (Points of Interest).
  3. Click Create new point of interest and fill in your POI details. Use the map to enter latitude and longitude.
  4. Save the POI and then add it to your watch by selecting Use in watch.
  5. Sync your watch with Movescount using SuuntoLink (USB cable) or Suunto Movescount App (Bluetooth).

If you are outside with your watch and come across a spot you want to save as a POI, you can add the location directly in your watch. The POI is added to your list of POIs in the watch and will be added to your POI list in Movescount the next time you sync.

To add a POI with your watch:

  1. Press the upper right button to open the launcher.
  2. Scroll to Navigation and tap on the icon or press the middle button.
  3. Press the lower right button to scroll down to Your location and press the middle button.
  4. Wait for the watch to activate GPS and find your location.
  5. When the watch displays your latitude and longitude, press the upper right button to save your location as a POI and select the POI type.
  6. By default the POI name is the same as the POI type (with a running number after it). You can edit the name later in Movescount.

Deleting POIs

You can remove a POI from you watch either by deactivating the Use in watch setting for the POI in Movescount or by deleting the POI from the POI list in the watch.

To delete a POI in your watch:

  1. Press the upper right button to open the launcher.
  2. Scroll to Navigation and press the middle button.
  3. Press the lower right button to scroll down to POIs and press the middle button.
  4. Scroll to the POI you want to remove from the watch and press the middle button.
  5. Scroll to the end of the details and select Delete.

When you delete a POI from your watch, the POI is not permanently deleted. The next time you sync your watch with Movescount, the POI you deleted is deactivated.

To permanently delete a POI, you need to delete the POI in Movescount.

To permanently delete a POI:

  1. Go to your watch settings in Movescount.
  2. Expand the Navigation section and then POIs (Points of Interest).
  3. Scroll to the POI you want to delete and click on the trash bin icon.
  4. Sync your watch with Movescount using SuuntoLink (USB cable) or Suunto Movescount App (Bluetooth) to also remove the POI from your watch POI list.

Navigating to a POI

You can navigate to any POI that is in your watch POI list.

NOTE:

When navigating to a POI, your watch uses full power GPS.

To navigate to a POI:

  1. Press the upper right button to open the launcher.
  2. Scroll to Navigation and press the middle button.
  3. Scroll to POIs and press the middle button to open your list of POIs.
  4. Scroll to the POI you want to navigate to and press the middle button.
  5. Press the upper button to start navigating.

To stop navigating, press the upper button again at any time.

While you are moving, the POI navigation has two views:

  • POI view with direction indicator and distance to the POI

    POI detail view Trainer

  • map view showing your current location relative to the POI and your breadcrumb trail (the track you have traveled)

    POI map view Trainer

Press the middle button to switch between views. If you stop moving, the watch cannot determine which direction you are going based on GPS.

TIP:

While in the POI view, press the upper left button to check battery level, time of day and altitude difference (between current position and POI).

In the map view, other POIs nearby are shown in gray. Press the upper left button to switch between the overview map and a more detailed view. In the detailed view, you adjust the zoom level by pressing the middle button and then zooming in and out with the upper and lower buttons.

While navigating, press the lower right button to open a list of shortcuts. The shortcuts give you quick access to navigation actions such as saving your current location or selecting another POI to navigate to.
