Can we download and use the app ahead of time?
Yes. You can now download the Cyburban app from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store and try out the interface. We have a couple of free and open modules that you can tinker with just to get the feel of the game. You can even get an opportunity to play and fully experience it when you join a different event that uses Cyburban.
Despite having registered just 1 phone for your team, all 3 members can use their smartphone together since they are working as 1 team.

Can we track our status in the race?
Trust us - it's much more exhilarating if you are on race mode during your run. Moreover, your location can be a clue to your competitors. Only the people at the finish line can track your progress at the leader board.

 
What constitutes cheating?
We encourage you to be creative with your solutions and strategies, so we're very loose with rules - you can Google, use a GPS, go beyond the budget, etc. As long as you stick to the mechanics, follow instructions on each checkpoint/task, & commute during race, everything else is allowed.
There may be marshals in some areas of the race whom you can ask for clarifications. If there are no visible marshals around, then you are free to solve the tasks your way.
