The RaceOwl tracker app provides position tracking support for RaceOwl.com - Your home for Canoe and Kayak race tracking!
Simply download/install the app, set your boat number, select your race and the RaceOwl tracker does the rest. So long as you have phone service, your boat's position is posted every 5 minutes to the RaceOwl.com site. You and your friends may use the RaceOwl site to track your position relative to other races and view your track on the interactive map. The phone screen does not need to remain on for the app to work; racers may just start the app, turn off the screen and put the phone away.
In addition to tracking, the RaceOwl tracker app also provides: - Speed (maximum, current, and average) - Elapsed time - Total miles - Latitude and Longitude
1) improve performance with spotty network availability
