You can create a route in Movescount, or import a route created with another service.
To add a route:
- Go to www.movescount.com and log in.
- Sync your Suunto Ambit3 Vertical with Movescount using Suuntolink and the supplied USB cable.
Routes could also be deleted through Movescount.
Navigating a route
You can navigate a route you have transferred to your Suunto Ambit3 Vertical from Suunto Movescount or a track saved in your logbook.
If you are using the compass for the first time, you need to calibrate it (see Calibrating compass). After activating the compass, the watch will begin searching for a GPS signal. After the watch acquires a GPS signal, you can begin to navigate a route.
To navigate a route:
- Press Start to enter the start menu.
- Scroll to NAVIGATION with Start Stop and press Next.
- Press Next to enter Routes.
- Scroll to the route you want to navigate with Start Stop or Light Lock and press Next.
- Press NEXT to select Navigate.
All navigating is recorded. If you watch has more than one sport mode, you are prompted to select one.
- Select Forwards or Backwards to chose the direction you want to navigate (from the first waypoint or the last).
- Start navigating. The watch informs you when you are approaching the beginning of the route.
- The watch informs you when you have arrived at your destination.
While navigating, press View to scroll the following views:
- Full track view showing the whole route
- Zoomed-in view of the route; by default, the zoomed-in view scale is 100 m (0.06 mi), but this may be larger if you are far away from the route.
You can change the map orientation of the zoomed-in view in the watch settings under GENERAL » Map. The options are:
- Heading up: Displays the track with your heading pointing up.
- North up: Displays the track with north pointing up.
- Ascent profile view
