GPS REQUIREMENT AND USE
A GPS is required it is not to be used for navigation, only for latitude and longitude coordinates in case of a medical emergency, so a rider can notify 911, and/or the organizer where they are located.
Each riders GPS will be presented at Tech Inspection and sealed in a tamper proof bag and then given back to the rider.
If GPS is used it will be presented at the next bivouac area by the rider, it will be resealed in a new bag if they are continuing in the event. If the bag is opened or tampered with there will be a time penalty of 3 hours for navigation, no penalties if using it for emergencies. Personal cell phones shall be packed in field box and cannot be used for navigation. There is little cell service along the route, thus the requirement for satellite phones.
All GPS units will be presented in the tamper proof bags at each start and after crossing the finish on last day.
