Important app settings for iOS users

  • Make sure that the viRACE app has access to your location.
    Settings > viRACE > Location > “Always Allow” or “When in use”https://youtu.be/Qh6mKwwaxDM
  • Make sure that the battery of your phone is well charged. A low battery level can prevent background activity of apps (even if the battery level is not yet at 0%).
  • Make sure that mobile data is activated and that you choose a route where you are unable to connect to the Internet. Do not start the run until you are outside and disable the WIFI function for safety.
  • The microphone function (phone, voice control, camera) of the phone can permanently interrupt the audio accompaniment. So enjoy the run in peace and undisturbed.

Important app settings for Android users
