How do I use maps when training with Suunto 7?

Suunto Wear app has free outdoor maps and 15 sport-specific heatmaps to explore – even when you are offline. Optimized for the outdoors, Suunto maps highlight altitude differences with accurate contour lines and show popular cycling and skiing tracks in addition to basic trails. Heatmaps visualize where others have trained so that you can follow the most popular routes. 



You have easy access to an outdoor map and heatmaps when you’re exercising outdoors. You can see your track on the map, use heatmaps to explore new routes or follow your track to find your way back to where you started. To use Suunto maps, you need to be connected to the Internet or have offline maps downloaded on your watch.
