Audio coach

(ex “training manager”)


Limited use in Locus Map Free - only one training possible

Audio coach comments your performance during a workout or a trip with voice notifications of your actual or average speed, distance, pace, elevation, heart rate and many other parameters.

It works with training schemes that are defined by the user and triggered together with track recording. If you have a Locus Pro version, you can define training schemes for any type of your sports activity.

How to set up a new training

  • go to Settings > Track recording > Audio coach
  • tap and insert name of the training scheme. Change the icon if necessary.
  • your training appears in the training list. Tap its menu and select Setup events
  • tap again and select distance or time notification
  • define the distance or time interval of notifications and add variables - distance, track time, pace, average speed, elevation, heart rate, cadence (if proper sensor is connected), battery % and energy consumption. All variables are available also in interval (lap) versions. You can combine both types of intervals - distance and time and assign different variables to them and tailor the training scheme to your personal needs.
