Updating satellite orbit data suunto

With the 2.4.1 software update that was just released (at the beginning of December 2016), the Suunto Ambit3 Peak gains the route altitude profile that was introduced on the (Ambit3) Vertical and later came to the Traverse.Read More After so much time with Suunto watches, it was high time to try out the major competition among sports and outdoor devices, those made by Garmin.In particular, that applies to the battle royale of the Garmin fenix 3 versus the Suunto Ambit3, the perhaps most-discussed two devices in the area of devices with GPS meant for outdoors use and sports training, the devices the merits of which keep being weighed.The usual way the question goes, it’s all about which of the two is better, the fenix 3 or the Ambit3. I finally had a chance, spring to summer of 2015, to try out the fenix 3 parallel to the Ambit3, and I feel that my testing had the result that was to be expected: Both aren’t bad.Earlier today Suunto released their 2.0 firmware for their Ambit watch, which has previously been targeted primarily at the hiking and ultra running crowd.Though this update will move it a long way towards bringing in other segments as well, primarily the non-ultra running crowd.

The official release notes lists the following functionality ads: Ambit 2.0 related features and improvements: – ANT support – Foot POD support – Interval timer – Suunto Apps support – Tighter speed fusion filter giving more stable running pace – Exercise summary to show the number of manual laps (in previous version the number of laps included manual, auto and pause laps combined) – Pausing no longer interferes with lap count in the Ambit – Improvement of log memory capacity when using GPSAmbit 2.0 related Movescount improvements & bug fixes: – Faster updating of satellite orbit data during Moveslink synchronization – Individual selection of all PODs in custom exercise modes in Movescount – Fixed minimum/maximum value bug in Movescount – Lap notes to differentiate autolaps and pause laps in Movescount – Ambit release notes available from GEAR page in Movescount – Sorting option added for POIs & routes in Movescount – Fixed a bug of Movescount not using avg cadence calculated by the Ambit Despite the laundry list of new functionality, I’m going to focus on two core areas in this post:1) ANT support 2) Suunto Apps (and the ability to make your own)These are the areas which I think are most significant, as well as most requested and most relevant.Everything else falls into the ‘nice to have’ category, but generally weren’t deal breakers.It should be noted that the 2.0 update is a free update that’s available today. In adding ANT support they’ve left behind the previous Suunto ANT.You can grab it by opening up the Moveslink agent installed on your computer and following the text in the updater. This was a proprietary variant of ANT that required you purchase separate Suunto branded accessories that only worked with Suunto devices.

Now the Ambit works with any ANT device within the device classes I’ll talk about in a second.

Of course they’ll still pair with your older Suunto-only accessories as well.

    Did anyone notice "Update Satellite Orbit Data" when they synched their Ambit. The Suunto servers are downloading to the watch a little file called "sgee" that the CSR SIRFIV chip uses to speed up GPS lock time. It stands for 'Server Generated Extended Ephemeris" which is GPS-speak for the uber.…
