Adding a route
You can create a route in Movescount, or import a route created with another watch from your computer to Movescount. You can also record a route with your Suunto Ambit2 and upload it to Movescount, see Recording tracks.
To add a route:
- Go to www.movescount.com. Follow the instructions on how to import or create a route.
- Activate SuuntoLink and connect your Suunto Ambit2 to your computer with the Suunto USB cable. The route is transferred automatically to the watch.
Make sure that the route you want to transfer to your Suunto Ambit2 has been selected in Movescount.
Navigating a route
You can navigate a route you have downloaded to your Suunto Ambit2 from Movescount, see Adding a route.
To navigate a route:
- Press Start Stop to enter the start menu.
- Scroll to Navigation with Start Stop and enter with Next.
- 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.
- Scroll to the route you want to navigate with Start Stop or Light Lock. Select with Next.
- 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.
- Press Next to select Navigate.
- If you selected a waypoint in the middle of the route, Suunto Ambit2 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 Ambit2 navigates the route forward (from the first to the last waypoint). If you selected the last waypoint as the starting point, Suunto Ambit2 navigates the route backwards (from the last to the first waypoint).
- If you are using the compass for the first time, you need to calibrate it. For more information, see Calibrating compass. After activating the compass, the watch starts searching for a GPS signal and displays GPS found after acquiring the signal.
- 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.
- Before the last waypoint on the route the watch informs you that you have arrived at your destination.
To skip a waypoint on a route:
- While you are navigating a route, keep Next pressed to access the options menu.
- Press Next to select Navigation.
- Scroll to Skip waypoint with Start Stop and select with Next. The watch skips the waypoint and starts navigating directly to the next waypoint on the route.
During navigation, press View to scroll the following views:
- the full track view showing the whole route
- zoomed-in view of the route. By default, the zoomed-in view is scaled to a 200 m/0.125 mi scale, or larger if you are far away from the route. You can change the map orientation in the watch settings under General / Map.
