Our Quick Guide for the Richta GPS Checkpoints Competitor app has been updated! As has the link in the Documents folder.
As a follow-up to last Friday’s rally, Signs Of Rallies Past, we’ve been talking to the Richta apps development team. Thank you to the 40% of competitors who responded to our poll or direct email inquiry. Our initial assessment was that the Broadcast Messages were only received by teams using Android devices. They have done some additional testing and confirmed our findings. The cause appears to be external – a change in the cloud service used by the Richta apps, or a change in iOS. An update to the iOS version of Competitor to regain functionality of Broadcast Messages is now in the works.
We alerted RASC to our experience with non-receipt of Broadcast Messages, so that they would not rely on them for the upcoming Norwester (underway now).
