Ever been out on a ride and decided to change plans and head somewhere else? Or get a call to meet your sweetie somewhere for a snack? Now, you can get to them with the most direct route thanks to Wahoo ELEMNT’s new trick – anytime updates.
Through the companion smartphone app, you can enter a new destination and update the ELEMNT in real time, then let it provide turn by turn directions. Or, if you’re just hungry or thirsty, you can search for a restaurant, convenience store or other point of interest. Additionally, routes created with RideWithGPS or Komoot can be uploaded to the device via Bluetooth, letting you add a route without having to be connected to WiFi.
Lastly, should you be utterly and hopelessly lost, you can select the Follow Your Tracks option and have it bring you home. This one’s available without even connecting to the app, providing a breadcrumb trail to take you back to your starting point. Everything here’s available with a free over the air update either through the app (and the app, too, has an update available) or via WiFi on the ELEMNT itself.
