Draw the course in the smartphone, run the course and evaluate the race directly using the smartphone. You can see a result table, your route on map and on Google Earth and your result profile.
The GPS will detect when you are at the controlpoint and will automatically punch. All you need is a map in JPG-format. This app uses real orienteering maps, not Google maps!
The courses can be one of three different types: standard orientering, free order orienteering and rogaining.
Share maps, courses and results with your friends by uploading and downloading them to/from a server or via Bluetooth.
The courses and the tracks are stored in GPX format.
Calibrate maps using a world file (.jgw). World files are for example created at export of maps from OCAD 10/11.
Import courses i gpx-format. OCAD can export courses in gpx-format that can be imported by the app.
Export course maps to jpg-files for printing on a colour printer.

Green: A runner may start when their course is showing a green “runner”.
Red: As a competitor starts the starter presses the course’s start button and the “runner” figure changes to a red “standing” figure. The next competitor must wait as oGo counts down to the next start.
Amber: Four seconds before the countdown ends the “standing” figure changes to an amber “get-ready” figure and a “beep-beep…” alert starts.
Green: When the countdown reaches zero the green “runner” returns and the next competitor may start immediately or any time after that.
Each course may be configured with its own name, start interval and start button colour. oGo can time starts for up to eight courses per event and store configurations for four events. oGo also keeps a count of the number of starts.
