Maps

From version 1.2 onwards, the V650 accompanies your ride with offline maps based on OpenStreetMap data. The V650 draws your route on a map as you ride allowing you to see where you are on the map in real time.

You can turn the map view on or off in Settings > Sport profiles. Choose the sport profile you want to edit, and then choose Training views. In Training views, scroll down to the last menu item (MAP VIEW), and tick/untick the box to turn the map view on or off.

In addition, you can choose a Map item to one of your training views (View 1, View 2, View 3, View 4, View 5 or View 6). This way you can use the map views in different zoom levels: one showing the roads in detail, and another showing more of the road ahead. For instructions on editing the training views, see Sport Profile Settings.

The map view is on by default in the following sport profiles: Road cycling, Mountain biking and Other.

Map Settings

To view or modify map settings, go to Settings > General settings > Maps. You'll find the following settings:

OFFLINE MAP AREA: Define the center point for the offline map area (450 km x 450 km).

  • You can browse the map by swiping, and zoom in with a double tap and zoom out with a two-finger tap.
  • Once you have defined the area, tap DOWNLOAD.
  • Delete old maps? is displayed. A new offline map area selection will delete the previous maps. Choose CONTINUE to confirm the area selection. V650 returns to MAP SETTINGS.
  • Synchronization required is displayed under OFFLINE MAP AREA. New offline map will be downloaded the next time you synchronize your V650 with the Flow web service via the FlowSync software.

MAP LAYERS: Choose Topographic, Bike routes and/or Favorite routes.

In Browse offline map, you can preview the downloaded map before starting a training session. To move the map to your current location, tap the compass needle in the upper right hand corner of the screen. When you browse away from your current location, the compass needle turns from red to white.

During Training

When you tap the map a hand icon will appear on the upper left-hand corner of the screen. You can enter the browse and zoom mode by tapping the hand icon or tapping the upper left-hand corner of the map. The red bar at the bottom and top of the screen together with the hand-icon indicate that the browse and zoom mode is active. You can zoom in with a double-tap or pinch-out and zoom out with a two-finger tap or pinch-in. Browsing the map is possible by swiping it. Center the map by tapping the map type indicator. You will leave the browse and zoom mode automatically if you don’t touch the screen for a couple of seconds or by tapping the hand icon. When you leave the browse and zoom mode your location on the map is centered automatically.

You can also change the map direction (HEADING UP or NORTH UP) by tapping the map type indicator in the upper right-hand corner of the screen

HEADING UP: The location pointer remains pointed towards the top of the screen regardless of the direction you're heading. When you turn, the map view rotates accordingly, so that the location pointer remains pointed towards the top of the screen. The HEADING UP map type indicator in the upper right hand corner of the screen points north.

NORTH UP: The location pointer is centered. The orientation of the location pointer changes as you turn, and points towards the top of the screen only when you're heading north.
