Which files?

Page is suitable for A4 or Letter size for printing paper maps.

Poster creates a higher resolution image which you might print out for the stable manager's office or VIP tent.

Select None if you only want the course and fence details, distances etc.

You will now see the different map squares flash as they are converted. If a map square is missing from the map image, re-run the course generation. Contact us if the problem persists

Sending by Email

The map image and text files are inserted into an email for you to send to an iPhone, iPad, Mac or PC. On receiving the email simply click on the files to open them as you would any attachment.

The easiest way is to Email the files to your Mac, PC or iPad. If you generate the course files on an iPad you must email them to yourself to access them. It sounds strange but this is an iPad limitation.

Sharing on Social Media

If you are running IOS6 you can also share the map image on Facebook or Twitter.

No Internet? Saving to iTunes

If you do not have access to email and the internet, you can "Save as File" and transfer the files via iTunes by connecting your iPhone or iPad to a Mac or PC.

Storing extra information

We have been asked by Technical Delegates about storing fence information such as dimensions and frangible pins. If you insert this as comments it will appear in the markers.csv file. Riders, coaches and spectators are also interested in this information so it has a dual value when you publish the courses

Productivity Tip

You can email a course you have recorded on your iPhone to your iPad, your course builder or other officials. It is easier to add in fence names and comments with the iPad keyboard.

Can we improve?
