Route Guidance

The route guidance feature guides you along routes that you have recorded in previous sessions or routes that other Flow web service users have recorded and shared. You can choose to go to the route start point, route end point or nearest point on the route (mid-route). First your watch will guide you to your chosen start point on the route. Once on the route, your watch will guide you all the way through and keep you on track. Just follow the guidance on the display. At the bottom of the display you’ll see how much distance you still have left.

Adding a route to your watch

To add a route to your watch you must save it as a favorite in the Flow web service Explore view or in the analysis view of your training session, and sync it to your watch. For more information see Favorites
