Automatic optimum time calculation

If you do not enter an optimum time, the Toolkit calculates it for you, based on measured distance and speed. Upgrade to a Toolkit subscription for extra time calculations "on the go". The Toolkit Stats also give you time at each fence based on the same calculations. We will be adding in calculations for Speed Faults which are used in the USA

Minimum Time and Speed Faults
