Your Suunto Ambit just got better: The Ambit 1.8. Update is now available

The Ambit 1.8. software update is available for download in as of today.

The Ambit 1.8. software update, that will take the much admired GPS watch to a new level of functionality, is available for download in as of today.

The update will include:

  • On screen route navigation
  • Online routes to download
  • Location displays in 5 global and 9 local grid references (includes US, UK and key European countries)
  • Plus chrono, GPS time keeping, a constant backlight and five new languages (Italian, Portugese, Dutch, Finnish and Swedish)

With this update, users will be able to download routes online or input their own waypoints from the comfort of their computer. Then out on the trails, whether hiking or biking, they'll be able to see their route in real time, including their start point, position and more importantly, the route ahead.

Providing location displays in local grid references is another eagerly anticipated update for users who want to pinpoint where they are on their map.

The next software update, planned for November, will offer users new training features such as interval timer and compatibility for both the Suunto Foot POD and ANT+ as well as the ability to download community-created features for even greater customization.

These upgrades are classic Suunto. For over 75 years the Finnish company has been pioneering sports watches and instruments and encouraging its users to push their own boundaries and explore what is possible. It's a philosophy the company is proud to live by.
