The use of GPS is obligatory. The GPS used by the participant must support the loading of “tracks”. The route provided by the organization is in “GPX” format. It is recommended that the GPS used the maps of the countries included in the route. The tracks of the stages will be sent by email to all participants a few days before the start of the expedition.
