When placing controls in the forest for a "conventional" orienteering event, it is important to place controls accurately.
This feature of MapRun allows you to publish a confidential copy of your map, then use the 6-digit code provided, to access the map.
You will be able to see your present position on the map as you check control sites.
The CheckSites option, allows you setup your own personal "Event" based on:
A map file (in KMZ format) ... but you can skip needing a map if you don't have one
A course file (in KML format) ... this is just a set of location pins exported from Google Earth/Google Maps or similar.... but if you just want to see your location on your map, upload a map file, but you don't need a course file as well.
In summary, to use this feature, you need to upload at least a Map or a Course file (and optionally both). You can also use MapRunF without either a Map or Course file. To do this tap "Select Event" > "Access Local Events" > "Use NO Event & Default Settings". This clears aways the previous Event you have used and then if you tap "Goto Start" you will see your position on a Satellite Image (without a map or course).
Upload your file(s) at the MapRunners CheckSites page and take note of the 6-digit code you will be given
In MapRunF, enter this 6-digit code on the CheckSites page, and your map/course will be available on your phone.
See the MapRunF Events page for more details on managing Events in the App.
