Enjoy a truly Rally Raid experience, with precise navigation and all the features that the pro riders use. Ready to ride?

Digital Roadbooks

Roadbooks are the Rally Raid pilot’s best friend. It’s simply the purest form of cross-country navigation. But in order to use one, expensive equipment is often needed. With the Rally Roadbooks app, a Tablet (or smartphone) is all need. Optionally, also a bluetooth remote controller. Easy. The app includes all the instruments used in the main events of the sport – so you can ride like a pro, in your own backyard.

A navigation app that simply works. Easy to use, fully featured and customizable to the rider’s preferences.


Keep track of your roadbook with smooth and flawlessly intelligent scroll. Adjust the odometer at speed without loosing any precision – it keeps counting while showing you the adjustment (just like the best hardware odometers).


Complete the Rally Raid experience with Waypoints. The app is waypoint aware. Meaning that you’ll be able to open and validate waypoints. It supports all the waypoints type (visible, hidden, safety, navigation, etc) and works just like the best hardware used by the pros.


With speed zones awareness, you’ll know when a speed zone (SZ/FZ) is coming in. Also, if you go above the zone speed limit the app will let you know.

Configurable Cockpit

Whenever you sign up for a Rally Raid that uses our RDS platform, you’ll get the event’s roadbook appear at race day. No passwords, pins or smoke-signals. It just works. But also, the app ships with a library of free roadbooks, made by our partners, so you can get some training whenever you feel like it. They are categorized, so you can choose one that suits your style. And you can always get our own roadbooks, in beautiful Portugal.


With terrain, navigation and fitness levels, it’s easy to choose the right roadbook for your skills. From novice to pro, we’ve got you covered.


Kilometers for all types of stamina. The roadbooks varies from less than 100 kms to 300+ kms, and even some are multi-stage – for extended trips.


Circular tracks for convenience, or cross-country, point to point routes, that often can be combined.

initiation roadbooks

Because not everybody was born in the desert of Morocco, on a rally bike, we have some roadbooks for the inexperienced riders. Just look for the ones classified as EASY in the navigation category. They have less lexicon, and the instructions are simpler, to boost your confidence while learning.

If you need something more specific, send us an email – we’ll be glad to help.


Device Compatibility

The app is compatible with devices running Android 5.1 (or newer) with GPS, WiFi and Google Play.

The WiFi (or 3G/4G) is only needed for the initial load of the Roadbooks, and it's not required to navigate the Roadbook.

We recommend using a rugged tablet for better visibility and durability, such as:

Some Huawei devices are NOT compatible, because they don't have Google Play services.

The device MUST have a GPS chip. For example, the Xiaomi Pad 5 (Nabu) doesn't have GPS.

PS: Devices with an unlocked bootloader, rooted or running an unofficial rom not certified by Google are NOT compatible - simply because they not meet Google's security standards.

Please feel free to email us at for any doubts or questions.

Editing the Odometer

For editing the odometer distance you have 3 options:

  1. Use the adjustment buttons (+ and -) on the remote. Each click adjusts 10 m (0.01 km). You can keep the button pressed to faster adjustment, if the remote allows it). You can do this while riding, the app will still track the distance on background, and after you  finish adjusting, it will add that distance to the one you adjusted to.
  2. Tap and hold for about 3 seconds the Odometer. A window pops up and lets you edit the total distance with a keypad.
  3. Tap and hold for about 3 seconds the distance on the note you want to adjust to. The Odo will automatically adjusts to that exact distance.

The odometer only counts to 99.99, and then reverts to 0.00 - this is to save space on the screen, and have bigger digits.

The partial odometer can't be adjusted, only the main one can.

Check out the video tutorial here.

Using the partial Odometer

The partial odometer can be reset by a click in the third button. It's always active, and each click makes it reset to zero.

It has more precision than the main odo, so you'll see 0.000 - measured in kilometers.

Using the Chronometer

The chronometer will start automatically whenever you enter a Special Stage. It starts as soon as you validate the corresponding waypoint.

It will stop automatically when you finish that stage by validating the corresponding waypoint.

The time shown in the Chronometer it's only for the rider's feedback. It's not the official time used for classifications.

Ignoring a Waypoint

To ignore an open waypoint tap on the arrow for about 3 seconds. The waypoint won't open again until the RB is reset.

Dismissing a Speed zone Alert

To dismiss a speed zone alert tap on the speedometer for about 3 seconds. The alert disappears and the current speed zone will be ignored until the next pass.

Using Go-to-note

If the roadbook contains any "GPS" box on the lower right corner of the notes section, then it allows the rider to navigate to that note's coordinates using any navigation app present on the rider's device.

To use this feature, tap for about 3 seconds on the "GPS" box, and choose the app you wish to use. It has been tested with Osmand (with offline maps) and Google Maps (online).

See the video tutorial here.

It's the roadbook creator who chooses which notes, if any, will have this feature active.


Roadbooks usually have several waypoints along the track. Some are hidden and some are visible.

When the rider is inside the open radius of a visible waypoint (close enough to it), the app displays an arrow pointing to it. It also informs about the distance to the waypoint and the waypoint number. If the rider goes inside the validation radius (smaller than the open radius), the waypoint is considered validated - the waypoint number flashes, the arrow disappears and the validated waypoint count goes up.

If the rider exits the open radius without validating the waypoint, it will become closed. The arrow disappears. If the rider enters again the open radius, it will open again.

Hidden waypoints are validated when the rider goes inside the validation radius.

Some waypoints will open immediately after the previous one was validated, such as the Eclipse Waypoint (WPE), End of Speed Zone (FZ) or Checkpoints.

Once a waypoint is validated it won't open or validate again.

Each waypoint may have different open and validation radius, regardless of their type.

Check out the video tutorial here.

Hide Hundreds

The app allows you to hide the hundreds digits from the Roadbook. So instead of viewing "120,99", you'll only see "0,99".

You can use this feature to enhance the readability of the Roadbook, as the numbers stay bigger, and they also match exactly what you see in the Odometer.

NOTE: The Odometer has 4 fixed digits, and it goes from 0,00 to 99,99 - and it restarts on 0,00 after that. This is so that the digits remain as large as possible, to enhance readability.

See the video tutorial here.

Locking the screen

The screen lock is useful when it starts to rain, or when you want to clean the screen of your device. It disables all touch features.

To activate it, long press on the third button.

On the ARN Remote, it's a double click on the third (yellow) button.

The Carpe Remote has a dedicated button for this feature.

To release the screen lock, repeat the same procedure, or use the "back" button of your android device.

See the video tutorial here.

Adding Roadbooks

To add a new Roadbook you must use the Roadbook Delivery System.

The Rally Roadbooks app doesn't allow for direct loading of roadbook files.

Registering for an event

When registering for an event you must use your device's account email to register.

If you register with a different email, you won't receive the roadbook on your device.

Auto-adjust Odo

This feature allows the main odometer to be automatically adjusted to the correct distance every time you validate a waypoint.

The main odometer is adjusted to the exact distance of the Note minus your distance to it's exact point. This is because the waypoint validates when you are "close enough" to it.
