Suunto Ambit owners will find a wealth of new enhanced navigation features and friendly improvements in the software update 1.5. It will further strengthen especially the navigation and GPS functionalities. The new update includes: Route creation and navigation based on waypoints, Logbook, Find Back, enhanced Views and GPS chip software improvements.
Route creation and navigation based on waypoints:
You can create a route based on individual waypoints in Movescount.com. Download the route to your Ambit and navigate through it waypoint by waypoint. Ambit notifies you when you have reached a waypoint and guides you to the next. Release 1.5 also enhances navigation by showing the name of the waypoint you are heading towards.
Points of Interest (POIs):
In addition to route navigation you can still create individual Points Of Interest and navigate to them. In Release 1.5 POIs can be added manually independent of your location. Stored POIs are categorized according to type, making it easier to search POIs in a list.
You can now view and examine all your previous sessions stored in the watch.
With the new Find Back feature, you can always navigate right back to where you started.
Compass and Navigation views are now accessible also in exercising mode.
GPS chip software improvements:
Thanks to smart software optimization, the GPS fix time is even faster and Movescount performance is improved.
