Go to ‘Results & Tracking’, ‘My Favourites’ and tap ‘View on map’. Now your selected favorites are ready to challenge each other or the elite in live mode.
You can edit your favourites anytime after the race.
Online and offline usage
The live features require internet access. However, if you open the info pages and navigate in the online map while online, your phone will store the data so that these features can also be used offline.
Intensive use of the app’s live features will increase your battery consumption. To ensure that your battery lasts all day, there are a few things you can do:
- Keep a lower brightness on your screen
- Do not use location services (tracking of your own position) more than necessary
- Make sure the mobile is fully charged before you go on the route to follow the race
- Add your favourites from home
