The ultimate outdoor tool
Living up to the expectations of its predecessors, the Suunto X10 features a GPS tracking system that is faster and more accurate, with more robust performance in harsh conditions. It also has a longer battery life and is USB chargeable, making it the ideal companion for adventurers.
Before the trip
For added preparation, use the Suunto Trek Manager software before your journey to create routes and plan your journey. You can also use one of several commercial PC software products that are compatible with Suunto X10 and allow planning and viewing of your hiking and trekking trips on a PC using digital outdoor maps.
During the trip
During your hike, the Suunto X10 continuously checks the barometric pressure, so you can always stay one step ahead of the weather. In addition to the altimeter, compass, and barometer use the GPS to better navigate to up to 500 waypoints throughout your journey. You can set the Suunto X10 to Activity Mode to record your speed, distance, and altitude information, and any memory points you define along the way. With the improved, faster GPS fixes - even under heavy foliage - and longer lasting battery power, you can navigate confidently and conveniently, while keeping your hands free. Once you reach your destination, set your Suunto X10 on Track Back mode to be guided back the way you came.
After the trip
After your trek, connect your Suunto X10 to your PC and use Suunto Trek Manager to review your journey and visualize its altitude profiles. Use Suunto Track Exporter software to upload your journey to Google Earth where you can plot and show your progress and share it with family and fellow outdoor enthusiasts.
When everyone knows where you've been and how you got there, the pressure is on to find new places. With the Suunto X10, the earth is your playground.
View tracks on Google Earth
The Suunto Track Exporter software allows you to export tracks from your Suunto X10 to Google Earth, where you can view your adventures anywhere on the globe with real satellite imagery. Once exported to Google Earth, you can relive your adventures, zooming from outer space to distances as close as 200 feet with detailed resolution. You can also show progressions of your trips with three-dimensional flyovers from start to finish, and share the excitement of the adventures with anyone who uses Google Earth by emailing the tracks or posting them on a website.
