WORKING WITH THE APP.
Lets go through the main controls and indicators in the app:
- Your own location on the map.
- Your team members on the map.
- Main menu button.
- Button to add a new member.
- Speed and altitude for the currently followed team member or Yours, if no team member is being followed.
- Your current coordinates and horizontal accuracy of your location.
- List of members. Collapsed by default, drag the drawer up to see the list. Tap on a row with a team member for options to edit, re-invite member, show a line between you and member or center map on a member’s location.
- Team tracking ON/OFF switch. When team tracking is OFF your location is not sent to the server and is not shared with your team members. Team members locations are not updated for you as well. When you turn the tracking back to ON, the most recent location of every team member will be provided to you, if team members have been tracking meanwhile.
- Circular zone.
- Polygonal zone. For zones, alerts on entering and leaving can be setup for yourself and your team members.
- Customizable top-left corner section that can show yours or member location data or status/message.
- Customizable top-right corner section.
- Zoom in/out buttons.
Black line on the map is an optional course line to show your current course. Optional green “target” line can be shown between your and a team member.

LIMITATIONS FOR NON-CELLULAR IPADS.
Please note that wifi only (non-cellular) iPads don’t have a built-in GPS chip. If you use the app on such a device, your location, shared with the team, will not be exact and will correspond to the wifi triangulation accuracy (about 65 meters, 200 feet). To improve location accuracy for your wifi only iPad you can pair it with the compatible external GPS module.
