About this app

The new version of the app serves a brand new dashboard. Currently, the dashboard only works on a computer or laptop as you need a wide screen to look at the maps and create courses. This allows you to design courses visually.

In addition to normal 'checkpoints,' we have now added 'breakpoints' which pause the clock during an event. These allow safety breaks, say to allow an untimed road crossing, but they can be used in other ways such as for a break for a food stop or a kit check.

Warnings can be turned on or off. The warnings give users feedback if they go to a checkpoint out of order for example. Great for beginners and helping users, but not wanted in proper competitions.

Results can be uploaded to the website more reliably and can be viewed more easily on the phone or on the website.

Sub-accounts can be created and linked to the main account. We only need basic info for a subaccount so they are great for schools, families or groups where one person manages the users.

Courses can be copied- Create a large, private event with all your checkpoints on, then copy this multiple times to create individual courses from this master course- delete the controls you will not need and sort the remainder into the correct order.

The app still works well offline - you don't need any mobile signal at the event centre for the app to work, but more features are available in areas with good mobile coverage.

On a course with 13 controls, the app worked fine until control 12. For some reason it reset, and offered only to start a new course. The course I was on was there in the Results tab, showing as "Incomplete". My biggest frustration is that there is no way to restart that course, to complete it. I wish the app hadn't stopped, but I understand apps can hit unexpected errors. But what is really necessary is that there be a way to restart the app and restart the course you were in the midst of.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry for the problem. We released and really big update last week but the Android version is delayed so you will be using the old version 1.9. may I ask you to give us a week or two to get back on track then try out the new app and revise your review? The new app is far more reliable and robust.

Accuracy spot on. Easy to use. Reliable when on a course. The audio indication on reaching a checkpoint is excellent and really helpful

Using it for MTBO courses in the covid restricted world. Good website for designing courses, and good app functionality. GPS issues are unavoidable in the world of phones, so use the QR codes for competition, but nice to have the option of the 2 different approaches to control placement.
