|In the last few years the quality of standard GPS devices have improved a lot.
For that reason GP3S has decided to accept Non-Verified Devices for the so called fun-rankings and day-to-day use. Altough results are often close to session posted with verified devices it is not always possible to verify the actual speeds that have been recorded. For that reason we do not allow non-verified devices sessions in our record rankings.
