The accuracy of the route recording via GPS is influenced by many factors, including: phone model, operating system, cellular network, current weather conditions, case / cover, starting point and availability of GPS satellites. You should also remember that the application has permission to run in the background.
In view of the above, we suggest mirroring the GPS tracking with the application you use on a daily basis for training or with a GPS watch. This applies in particular to the half-marathon and marathon distances.
The application should have permission to work in the background (SETTINGS – APPLICATIONS – Poznań Virtual Race – BATTERY – you should allow the application to work in the background. The option of energy optimization should also be disabled.
The application should have permission to refresh in the background (SETTINGS – Poznań Virtual Race – BACKGROUND REFRESHING enabled).
During the first launch, the application will ask for permission for GPS tracking / location and access to the camera. You must agree to both functions for the application to work properly.
How do I save the time if I choose to start with my own tracker app or GPS watch?
If you choose to start with your own tracking application or a GPS watch, you must:
- upload at least one, maximum 3 graphic files (file extension .jpg or .png, file size, max 2mb)
- enter the registration e-mail (provided during registration)

- enter the time
The option to upload the result will be available on October 17 and 18, both in the application via „Upload your result), and also via the website using the ADD RESULT option.
