Navigating Back to Start

At any point during your activity, you can return to your starting location. For example, if you are running in a new city, and you are unsure how to get back to the trail head or hotel, you can navigate back to your starting location.

NOTE: Garmin® recommends that you locate satellites and start the timer before attempting to navigate back to your starting location. If not, the device navigates you to the starting location of the last saved activity.
NOTE: Garmin recommends enabling the map screen for your activity profile in order to view your route on the map. By default, the compass screen appears to navigate you back to your starting location.
  1. Select an option:
    • If the timer is still running, select > Navigation > Back to Start.

    • If you stopped the timer and saved your activity, select > Navigation > Back to Start.

      The device navigates you to the starting location of the last saved activity. You can start the timer again to prevent the device from timing out to watch mode.

    The compass appears. The arrow points toward your starting point.

  2. Select to view the map (optional).

    A line appears on the map from your current location to your starting point.
