Recommended iPad iOS version
It is recommended that you ensure your iPad is updated to the latest available iOS version.
At a minimum, we recommend that your iPad is updated to iOS 16 to ensure the latest Vector Live version is able to be downloaded and installed from the App store.
What is High Capacity Mode?
The number of athletes supported by each iPad version is dependent on whether the Vector devices are in high capacity mode. High Capacity Mode switches the frequency at which the devices send live data to the iPad via the receiver, from 10hz to 5hz.
IMPORTANT: All of your data output will be exactly the same both live and post download whichever mode is selected. The device will continue to collect at 10hz it is just sent to the receiver at 5hz and all data is backfilled.
If you do not plan to use the OpenField Console (laptop) live it is highly recommended that you run your devices in high capacity mode to reduce the load on the iPad, saving battery and improving performance. The only reason not to run devices in high capacity mode is if you would like to view the raw traces live on OpenField Console.
Please contact support if you want to enable high capacity mode for your devices.
