Detailed Explanation of iGS630 Navigation Function

Hey, long time no see, the last article gave you an overall introduction to the experience of the iGS630 unboxing. This article mainly focuses on the core function navigation of the iGS630 and provides a detailed operation tutorial.


In daily travel, we rely on the map app. For unfamiliar places, by locating the destination, we can know the travel distance, required time , road conditions and so on.



The navigation function is like a map APP installed in the GPS cycling computer. It can provide routes from past riding records, or import other people's cycling routes into the GPS cycling computer as a reference; you can also create routes in the iGPSPORT APP and send to the computer via bluetooth. When the GPS cycling computer function is on, all you have to do is follow the instructions on the display while riding.
