Participate in an event

If you will participate in a training event you need to have the app, either the full version ‘GPS Orienteering’ or the free version ‘GPS Orienteering Run’, the course in the smartphone and a paper map with the course.

The simplest way is that the person arranging the event uploads the course, so you can download it (see ‘Event/Create an event’). To download the course:

1. Get the course code (8 characters) via SMS, email or similar from the one arranging the event.

2. Select ‘Download course’ under ‘Courses’ and enter the code. The course will now be downloaded to your smartphone. It is also possible to transfer the course via Bluetooth (see ‘App functions/Bluetooth transfer) or by ordinary file transfer from a PC.

3. You are now ready to run the course. Select the downloaded course under ‘Run’. Se ‘App functions/Run a course’ for more info.

4. When you have run the course you can upload your result. Open your result and select ‘Uplaod’. You can select between uploading the complete result (leg times and route) or your punches only (leg times only).

Note! Don’t make any changes in the course when you have downloaded it, since this will change the course code and you will not be able to compare your result with others!
