The Dash locates climbs within your courses and displays additional information to help guide you through each climb. To enable the Climb feature, go to Settings > Dash settings > Maps and courses > Climb and choose from:

  • All climbs: Display climb notifications and the climb page for climbs of all sizes (minimum ascent: 15 m or 50 ft).
  • Medium and above: Display climb notifications for medium and large climbs (minimum ascent: 35 m or 115 ft).
