GPS Strip Requirement


Mike Wilson (Event Partner)
7-Nov-2022

Hello in Appendix B it states "In Programming Skills Matches, the VEX GPS code strip must be installed on the field.", if no teams are going to be using the GPS sensor for their skills runs is it still required to install the GPS Strip on the old fields?

Answered by committee

As stated in Appendix B and quoted in your question, the VEX GPS strip must be installed on the field for all Programming Skills Matches. Even if the Event Partner believes it will not be utilized by any Teams, the GPS strip is required. Teams must always have the option to use GPS in Programming Skills Matches at Qualifying Events.

Event Partners may choose to install the code strip on the field for other types of Matches, but they are not required to do so.
