Introduces: Event Information links and documents, NFC-based control punching, "Any Track" allows the use of any GPS watch, also sound options for punching.

MapRun6 enables a form of Orienteering that uses a SmartPhone App for punching and timing, avoiding the need to put out flags and punch units on the course.

This saves time and effort for organisers, courses can be left open for extended periods of time, and instant feedback is provided with track, personal result and leaderboard results in the App.

See for more details.

Warning: Continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life.

What’s New

Version 6.5.10

- Event Information - MapRun can now provide access to related information about events (via links or PDF documents eg a link to a Club website or a PDF map to print)
- NFC tag punching - simple contact-less punching using inexpensive NFC tags
- “Any Track” to allow users to run with any GPS device and upload their track from Strava to create a result in a MapRun event
- Sound options for the sound that plays when punching a control
- User profiles of multiple users in the one phone (to allow easy switching of users for shared phones or shared Garmin Watches with MapRunG)
- Improvements to Location Pins - as typically used by mappers or those checking maps/course on site - text is now not shown on the map, but appears as a popup when tapped
