Perms by GPS - Rider Instructions
Not all Perms can be validated using proof of passage by GPS. It is up to the organiser to choose whether or not to offer this, and AUK asks them to do a little preparation beforehand.
How can I tell if I can use GPS proof of passage for the Perm I want to ride?
Category 1 - Advisory Route Permanent Events
If the ride description includes this text, then you can use GPS proof of passage:
"You can use GPS proof of passage. Please select the correct option when entering"
For these events you will see two or three different entry buttons - choose the one marked "Enter Online by GPS"
Category 2 Advisory route Permanent Events (Validation by GPS track or E-Brevet as proof of passage only)
If the ride description includes this text, then you must use GPS or E-Brevet as proof of passage.
"You must use electronic proof of passage (GPS or E-Brevet) for this event."
For these events you will see two entry buttons - Choose either "Enter Online by GPS" or “Enter Online by E-Brevet”
Category 3 Mandatory route Permanent Events (Validation by GPS track as proof of passage only)
If the ride description includes this text, then you must use GPS as proof of passage.
"This event has a mandatory route - you must use a GPS track for proof of passage."
For these events you will see only one entry button - "Enter Online by GPS"
After the event go to the "Upcoming and Pending Events" section on your dashboard (the screen you see when you first login) and look for your ride. Expand the arrow to find the upload link for your track.
You can upload the following file types:
- fit (which will be converted to tcx before processing)
- zip (multiple gpx or tcx files)
The uploader link is specific to a particular entry - you can't use it for any other event, or for a second entry on the same event.
There is a file size limit of 1Mb.
Wahoo fit file are not accepted, because Wahoo have recently moved to a new fit2 format.
Zipped fit files may also cause problems even if they seem to have uploaded correctly.
For more on file size limits, and other upload problems see this page.
Once the file has been successfully uploaded, you and the organiser will get a confirmation email, and the organiser will be able to validate your ride. Be patient, they may be away, or busy, so it may not happen for a few days.
