Offline maps

With Suunto Race you can have offline maps downloaded on your watch, and leave your phone behind and find your way just by using your watch.

Before you can use offline maps in your watch you need to setup a wireless network connection in Suunto app and download the selected map area to your watch. You will get a notification on your watch when the map download is complete.

A more detailed instruction on how to setup a wireless network and download offline maps in Suunto app is available here.
