Suunto Ambit2 R allows you to save your current location or define a location as a POI. You can navigate to a saved POI anytime, for example, during your exercise.
You can store up to 100 POIs in the watch. Note that also routes take up this quota. For example, if you have a route with 60 waypoints, you can additionally store 40 POIs in the watch.
You can select a POI type (icon) and POI name from a pre-defined list, or freely name the POIs in Movescount. The pre-defined icons are listed in Icons.
To save a location as a POI:
You can create POIs in Movescount by selecting a location on a map or inserting the coordinates. POIs in your Suunto Ambit2 R and in Movescount are always synchronized when you connect the watch to Movescount.
Suunto Ambit2 R includes GPS navigation which allows you to navigate to a pre-defined destination stored as a POI.
You can also navigate when you are recording an exercise, see Navigating during exercise.
To navigate to a POI:
When stationary or moving slowly (<4 km/h), the watch shows you the direction to the POI (or waypoint if navigating a route) based on the compass bearing.
While moving (>4 km/h), the watch shows you the direction to the POI (or waypoint if navigating a route) based on GPS.
The direction to your target, or bearing, is shown with the empty triangle. Your direction of travel, or heading, is indicated by the solid lines at the top of the display. Aligning these two ensures you are moving in the correct direction.
To delete a POI:
When you delete a POI in Movescount and synchronize your Suunto Ambit2 R, the POI is deleted from the watch but only disabled in Movescount.
