Routes can be added to Livelox in a few different ways:
Read more about each of these ways below.
The Livelox Recorder mobile app is available for both Android and iOS.
Follow the instructions below to download the app and log in.
Download the app from Google Play or App Store. Search for Livelox Recorder. The icon looks like this.
The log-in page is shown. Fill in your Livelox or Eventor username and password, and click Login. If you are unsure of your Eventor password, look at the Eventor Guide or ask your club administrator. It is also possible to create a separate Livelox account even if you are not already a member in a Swedish orienteering club.
It is simple to record a route. This is how to do it:
Click on the Start recording button at the bottom. The time starts to begin. Now you can quickly press the telephone's on/off button so the screen turns off.
To review a route you recorded, go into the Livelox start page and search for it. Read more how you do that here.
Our simple-to-use GPS trackers are available to buy or to rent. Press the start button and you are ready to go!
Automatic synchronization is the smoothest way to get routes from a GPS watch into Livelox. Read more about how to connect your Livelox account to Strava, Garmin, Polar Flow, or Suunto.
If you can't use automatic synchronization, there is an option to upload route files. If you have a GPS watch, you can usually get the route from your watch's accompanying app or webpage. The most common file format for routes and other geographic information is GPX. Another common format is TCX och FIT. Note how you create a GPX, TCX or FIT file for your type and model of GPS watch by checking on the web. Below you can see how to create a GPX file in the web service Garmin Connect.
When you have created the file with your route, upload it in Livelox. To upload it:
Select the tab My activities on the start page. Click on the button "Add a route".
Choose the person that the route belongs to, and find the route file that you just created. You can either choose a file from your computer, add a link to the file if it on the web, or get the file from your Strava account.
When the file is uploaded, information on the routes time and distance are shown. If the route overlaps an event in Livelox you have the option to add your route in that event. In that case, choose the event and class it belongs to. If there is the possibility to connect from Eventor, you can even connect your route with a result so that you can crop your route based on the start time and finish time. The best matching result is normally set to default.
Normally a GPS watch is set based on the GPS satellites's clock. However, if the time for a route should need to be changed, you can click on the link Change start time. This can be useful for example, if you have run a course at another time point than the time period of the Livelox event you want to add your route to. Update the start time to a time within the time interval for the event and then connect the route to the event.
If you have not recorded your route with a phone or GPS watch you can still load it into Livelox. You draw your route with the help of the mouse. Make sure that you are logged in and go to viewing mode for the class you want to add the route to. To the right of the heading Event there is a menu icon: . Click on it and choose Add a route. Choose a person to draw the route for and click on Draw in route by hand.
