Basic usage of Control is free. However, in order to get everything out of Control, you can purchase a subscription called Total Control with added features and functionalities. You can choose between a yearly or monthly-billed continuous subscription from both App Store and Google Play Store.
A free 14-day trial period is also offered so you can try it out and cancel if you notice that it is not for you.
Garmin, Suunto & Polar ❤️ Total Control
With Total Control subscription you will get a possibility to link your Garmin Connect, Suunto and Polar accounts with Control. This enables you to download your activities directly from all these services. You can import lap markers as control points into the app.
You just login with your service credentials, authorize the service to connect with Control and then you are ready. Activities will be displayed in a list and you can select which one to download.
You will only need to connect once and after that all the future activities will also be displayed in the activity list.
Sometimes the route line does not really tell the story of what happened. Sometimes you need the time aspect, where did your pace drop and where did you speed up.
With Total Control you can use Replay to replay your track in real time or faster. Re-live your performance. Jump to any time anywhere on the track or just start it from the beginning and watch how it all happened.
You can choose speed from real-time to 100x.
You can set tags to a course either from the grid view menu or then inside the course by tapping the top menu and selecting “Set tags”.
Tags have a name and a colour. Tags can include: Sprint, forest, rainy, different map sizes, what ever you come up with. By default you have Training, Race, 1:5000, 1:10000, 1:15000.
You can add new tags, edit any existing tag, remove them (including also the default tags) and substitute them with your own ones. Also you can pick any color to a tag.
Tags are visible as colour bars in the courses grid item.
DOMA – Digital Orienteering Map Archive
With Total Control subscription you get the possibility to publish your maps & routes in DOMA. The digital orienteering map archive helps you display your and your friends’ orienteering maps and route choices on the web.
To be able to share to DOMA you need to provide the URL to your DOMA server and your username and password.
DOMA is a quite convenient tool for sharing your route choices to other orienteers and across the orienteering community. We are happy to support this tool from our part.
What If? – Analyse route options and mistakes
Have you ever wondered what would your time been like if you’d have taken that other route option? Would be weird if not: all orienteers have wondered that!
With What If, you don’t need to wonder or guess anymore, you can actually know. You can draw the alternate route to the map and measure its distance and time and actually see how much time you lost/saved. Measuring calculates the time based on your average pace for the whole track.
This feature is not yet available on Android.
Livelox – Compare your tracks with other runners
With Total Control Subscription users can easily upload their GPS track to Livelox directly from the app. In Livelox users can then compare their runs against with friends, family and other fellow runners.
You just need to login with your Livelox or Eventor credentials and give Control authority to send GPS tracks to your account and then you are ready. After uploading the route Control displays you a direct link to the Livelox replay.
You will only need to connect once and after that you can simply send courses by tapping the share icon.
Split the track
One small feature that Total Control users have also is the ability to split the track into 2 separate tracks.
For instance, if you had a race where you needed to flip the map in the middle, you will have one record in your sports watch but two maps. Then you will just split the track and import the other map image for the other track!
Second use case could be a training where you pause in the middle. You can import the track, calibrate the map image, split the track and then you have 2 courses with separate data.
Other notable features currently in Total Control:
- Ability to import FIT files
- Ability to import workouts from Apple Health app
We are constantly developing Total Control subscription package. Currently all new features will be introduced to Total Control subscribers so we encourage you to subscribe to be on top of the latest development.
