Navigating a route

You can navigate a route you have downloaded to your Suunto Ambit3 Peak from Movescount (see Routes) or recorded from an exercise (see Recording tracks).

TIP:

You can also navigate with sport modes (see Navigating during exercise).

To navigate a route:

  1. Press Start Stop to enter the start menu.
  2. Scroll to Navigation with Start Stop and enter with Next.
  3. Scroll to Routes with Start Stop and enter with Next. The watch displays the number of saved routes and after that a list of all your routes.
  4. Scroll to the route you want to navigate with Start Stop or Light Lock. Select with Next.
  5. Press Next and select Navigate.
    Alternatively, you can select View to first preview a route and the altitude profile of the route.
  6. The watch displays all the waypoints on the selected route. Scroll to the waypoint you want to use as the starting point with Start Stop or Light Lock. Accept with Next.
  7. If you selected a waypoint in the middle of the route, Suunto Ambit3 Peak prompts you to select the direction of the navigation. Press Start Stop to select Forwards or Light Lock to select Backwards. If you selected the first waypoint as the starting point, Suunto Ambit3 Peak navigates the route forward (from the first to the last waypoint). If you selected the last waypoint as the starting point, Suunto Ambit3 Peak navigates the route backwards (from the last to the first waypoint).
  8. If you are using the compass for the first time, you need to calibrate it (see Calibrating compass). After activating the compass, the watch starts searching for a GPS signal and displays GPS found after acquiring the signal.
  9. Start navigating to the first waypoint on the route. The watch informs you when you are approaching the waypoint and automatically starts navigating to the next waypoint on the route.
  10. Before the last waypoint on the route the watch informs you that you have arrived at your destination.
