Android: TTLiveTrack24 App Setup - 2018-06-15 14:16

TTLiveTrack24 Setup 

The options that I have found to be most effective are shown below:

Step 1: Ensure you have the latest version off TTLivetrack24 installed on your Android device

Step 2: Open the app and click on settings (3 dots on top right of screen). Ensure you have the Livetrack24 option enabled. Configure your Livetrack24 username and password (the account you used to register for the Barberton open)

Step 3: Tracking Interval and Send to Server
Make sure the tracking interval is set to 1 second. This is the breadcrumb that is used to create your IGC file (i.e. your tracklog that is used for scoring). Note - this file is also stored on the phone in case of no signal etc. Send to server interval. This dictates how often your phone sends the breadcrumbs to the server. If you struggle with battery life, set this to 60 seconds. It is a bit of a party pooper for people watching but it is better than the phone dying halfway through the task.

Step 4: Go into settings , select profile settings. Select Paraglider

 Set min speed to 15kmh and uncheck auto stop. This ensures that the log doesnt stop before you even takeoff which happens sometimes. Please stop the task 'manually when you land!

General Note
Please make sure that your phone is fully charged and has a battery pack if its battery power is poor. Some phones will automatically kill TTLiveTrack24 if they get to "low battery" mode which is at around 15% of power.

Final note:
PLEASE remember to turn the tracking app on and to make sure that you have the paraglider mode selected. Ja Nee
