Ride with GPS Links
How to Use the OKHT Ride with GPS
Once you have joined an event using your Ride with GPS account, you can navigate the event courses using the mobile app. Your event and routes will already be synced to your account.
To navigate a route:
You can download your Ride with GPS event routes for use offline to save your phone battery and/or avoid using data while riding. To download maps for use offline, tap the Save button on the bottom row of the route preview screen, then tap Download for Offline. It may take a few minutes to download. This works best when connected to a wifi network. Once your download is complete, you will have full access to that route and map even when you are not connected to a cellular network or wifi.
While viewing an event page in the app, you can download all the routes associated with the event with one tap rather than having select each route individually.
When you sign up for an event that uses Ride with GPS maps and navigation, the event organizer will provide you with an auto-approval link you can use to RSVP to the event, syncing the event with your account and unlocking free navigation features for your event routes.
Once you click the link, you will be asked to sign up if you are new to Ride with GPS or sign in if you already have a Ride with GPS account. The event will automatically be synced to your account and available both on the mobile app and online.
Once you have clicked the auto-approval link and signed in to your Ride with GPS account, you will see confirmation that you have been added to the event.
When accessing the Ride with GPS website, you’ll find your event listed under the Events section of your dashboard.
You can create and print PDF files of your event route maps and cue sheets. Click the name of any event route to view it. You will see a link to print PDF maps and cue sheets in the right side panel.
From your event page, select the route you’d like to export from the route list, then click Go to Route.
When viewing your event routes, click More on the left panel, then Export as File. Choose your desired file type and click Download File. Learn more about exporting routes to your Garmin.
When viewing your event routes, click the PIN button on the left panel. This will pin the route to your account and allow you to sync the route to your device. Learn more about syncing your routes to your Wahoo device.
