The free version of the dwMap watch app offers a map page showing your current active route (at 6 zoom levels) and 3 data fields pages.
Premium adds a Navigation Page.
Following your Route
When you start the app it will automatically try to guide you on your route. The Navigation page will show when you are on- or off-route. When you are on-route it will show your next turn.
When you are off-route it will show the direction and distance to the closest part of the route.
Note the directional arrow assumes you are holding your watch in front of you in a normal way to read it.
Navigating to a Waypoint
On the menu in the app, there is an option called Go To. Instead of following your current active route you can choose a destination from any waypoints that you have created on your route.
The Map page will show the chosen waypoint with a larger blue square than the other waypoints.
The Navigation page will show the direction and distance to the waypoint.
Note the directional arrow assumes you are holding your watch in front of you in a normal way to read it. You also can choose your start point as your navigation target.
See Waypoints and Geocaching for more information on creating waypoints.
Route and Activity Start and End points
You can also choose your activity start point, or the start or end point of your current active route from the Go To menu, and the Navigation page will show the direction and distance to the point selected.
