Routes onto watch

  • hi… spent enough hours trying, hopefully someone can help. Urgent as i need the route on watch by friday for a race.

    Trying to get a route/gpx over to my S9 watch… I have tried several gpx routes. Opened up in Suunto App and saved with the ‘add to watch’ . Sync the App to watch and no routes are moved?
    Tried a soft reset and a ton of other things and all i seem to be doing is wasting my time (i have successfully done this before as i have 6 routes on my watch that i now cannot delete!!).

    Any ideas, thanks. Andy.

    Have you tried to un-toggle / toggle the route again from the list ?
    Sometimes the route is not sent to watch if you “toggle” it while creating it

    android or Ios ?
    app version ?

  • hi… yep have tried it and tried again just now and sync’d. Still nothing uploaded to watch…
    Android (samsung)
    App is V 4.2.4

    I did mange to load some routes on last month which is why i am confused. The only thing i noticed was that the original gpx was 10MB file. But that never loaded into the App routes folder and i have closed everything down and on again since. Current gpx file is 59KB.

    Furthermore, you don’t need to sync to send the routes.
    It’s automatically done when toggling it

    thanks… so become a tester on the suunto app? doesnt sound like it will fix my issue by friday which is my problem.

    thanks… i did think it did it automatically but was looking to see if i saw a number when syncing… routes is blank but i see number for my activities…

  • thanks guys…i have solved it… i tried one last thing and that was to uninstall Suunto App and re install i also did a soft reboot on watch…
    The app then reloaded some old routes and i reloaded the gpx file onto Suunto app and toggled the Add to watch and now i have it on my S9 watch. Happy days.
    Not ideal to have to uninstall but at least i have the route on my watch for the race (the reason for buying the watch in the first place).

    All the best

    Usually you don’t need to 😄
    Maybe something was stuck from some unknown reason and maybe (I don’t remember well) there was a bug on routes management on that version.

    It could be an App cache issue too, so it could be enough to wipe the cache data instead of uninstall/install
