In order to connect you will first require a Suunto account. This is also needed to transfer shared plans and routes to your devices.
On the website
Go to the settings via the cogwheel symbol on "My Page". Under 'Connections' (on the left of the page) you will find the option to connect to your Suunto account simply by clicking on "Connect". You will then be redirected to Suunto and asked for your Suunto credentials. After successfully logging in you will be redirected back to the settings. You also have the option under 'Connections' to completely disconnect from Suunto.
Once connected, any tracks you record with Suunto are automatically imported into Outdooractive. You will find these tracks in your Outdooractive 'Library' or profile under 'Tracks'.
Transfering your own routes
After connecting, any routes you create in Outdooractive are automatically exported to your Suunto account. These can then be found in your Suunto library under 'Routes'. To sync routes with Suunto that you had already created before connecting your account, simply change the title or description slightly (e.g. add a space between two words) and then save your changes. Note: Spaces at the end of the title will not work!
Transfer routes from others
It is only possible on the web to transfer routes from other users that were found using the Route Finder. To do this, select the "Send to Connected Accounts" option on the route details page (in the 3-dot menu). You will also find the option in the settings to completely disconnect from Suunto.
In the app
First, open the setting via the hamburger menu. Under "Connections" you will find the option to connect to your Suunto account. All further steps correspond to those on the web (see above).
Important to know:
Imported tracks can count towards any Outdooractive Challenges you participate in. If you link several partner accounts with Outdooractive, it can happen that shared content synchronizes and displays multiple times in Outdooractive and/or in your partner account. To prevent this, please use the correct configuration when connecting in Outdooractive. For example, disable importing recorded tracks from a partner app if it is also linked to Suunto, and importing recorded tracks from Suunto is enabled.
The activity type is either carried over when syncing or will be set to "Hiking Route" by default. The activity can be changed afterward.
