Celebrating 20 years of transforming lives

Once again, Belron employees, friends, family and business partners are joining forces to form a virtual global community for the Spirit of Belron Round the World Challenge.

This year will mark a special moment as we celebrate 20 years of getting together to support our global charity partner, Afrika Tikkun.

To take part, we are asking for a small donation, which will go directly to help the communities in South Africa.

The Spirit of Belron Round the World Challenge is also about raising vital funds for our global charity partner, Afrika Tikkun.

Belron employees have been swimming, cycling and running for Afrika Tikkun for 20 years and in that time have raised just over €12.5m.

In 2020, we raised €1.7 million for Afrika Tikkun.

Operating in 40 countries across 6 continents, and home to around 27,000 employees, who served 14.9 million customers in 2020, Belron is the world leader in vehicle glass repair, replacement and recalibration.

Belron has a deep and longstanding commitment to its purpose ‘to make a difference with real care’ to its customers, its people, its shareholders and to society.

This purpose is shared right across our business and is the driving force behind all our decisions.

Giving back to the communities around us is really important to everyone at Belron. Whatever your skills, there’s a way for everyone to be involved.

Every year, the people of Belron come together in a global sporting challenge, to raise money for our global charity partner Afrika Tikkun.

Who can participate?

Everyone is invited to join the challenge. The more the merrier. Please share with your friends, family, colleagues and business partners.

How can I post a photo on the feed?

After submitting your activity on the GO screen, click on the share button. You will be able to either take a photo or choose one from your library. You can also add a comment and share your picture on other social media channels outside of atlasGO. As soon as you have shared your photo it will appear on the feed.

Why does the app not allow me to import my steps from Fitbit or another app?

We don't allow importing steps as the challenge promotes conscious workouts such as runs. Importing daily steps that also include all the steps you take at home is therefore not enabled.

Why does the app tell me that I can't add more kilometres?

For all activities, the application puts an upper cap to make sure our users don't put an unrealistic number by mistake, as an example 200 kilometres biked instead of 20 kilometres biked. The cap is set for a period of 24 hours and if you think you weren't able to add all your activities because of a cap, you can always reach out to support@atlasgo.org and ask them to add your additional activity.

How can I talk to my teammates?

Click on the bottom navigation bar on the ‘team’ button. It is the icon that looks like a heart. That’s your team chat. You can write in there to communicate with your teammates. If you would like to disable notifications for the team chat you can edit by clicking on the three little dots next to the team icon.

How can I find and follow a friend?

The easiest way to find and follow a friend is to use the search function on top of the feed. You can also click on their profile on the feed above each post or while visiting the leaderboard, to follow your friend. On the leaderboards, check out the “Following” leaderboard to see how you are doing compared to your peers.

How can I see my activities and previous shares?

On the bottom of the navigation bar, click on your profile (button on the right). To make any edits to your profile name or add to a photo click on the three little dots at the top right of your screen. You will also find your stats, activities and shares on the profile page.

atlasGO has an option to track distance-based activities by GPS tracking but it does not seem to work properly. What is wrong?

Depending on many external factors, tracking can be inaccurate sometimes. Here are a couple of ways you can improve accuracy:

Make sure you are outside. We cannot track your activity indoors. It is difficult to catch the right satellite signal indoors. For the optimal accuracy please add your activity manually if you are running on a treadmill or if you are walking in a building. You can do this by clicking on the “+” sign on the GO screen.

Make sure you activate localisation. We cannot track your activity if tracking is not activated. Please allow tracking by going to your settings.

Fully charge your battery. When your phone is on low battery or if you use the battery saving option tracking services will be less accurate.

Please update the app. We continuously work on improving accuracy. You might be on an old app version. A full refresh is the best way to avoid issues. Delete atlasGO and download again.

For best results with GPS tracking iOS:

1. Be sure you have installed the latest version of the atlasGO App.

2. Toggle Location Services “On” for atlasGO in iPhone settings (Settings->Privacy->Location Services) and make sure location services are turned on specifically for atlasGO.

3. Turn Airplane mode ‘Off’ and WiFi ‘On’ in iPhone settings

4. Open the app, making sure you have a direct line to the sky. Then click ‘go’ and watch the kilometres increase as you’re enjoying your activity.

5. If it is cloudy, or there are trees or tall buildings around, you may experience GPS disruptions. Many GPS issues occur in certain locations that may not have a strong signal.

6. If you continue to have issues with GPS tracking please contact support@atlasgo.org so we can help you.

For best results with GPS tracking Android:

1. Be sure you have installed the latest version of the atlasGO App.

2. Reset network and location warnings in settings, and reboot device.

3. Make sure your phone’s battery saving mode is turned off as that can affect GPS.

4. If none of the above work, please delete & reinstall the app to see if this helps.

5. If you continue to have issues with GPS tracking please contact support@atlasgo.org so we can help you.

IF ALL OF THESE TIPS AND TRICKS DON’T HELP YOU HAVE THE POSSIBILITY TO LOG YOUR ACTIVITIES AND DISTANCE MANUALLY

Can I use the App abroad?

Yes, you can but please be aware that our GPS tracking requires you to have an internet connection at the end of a fitness session so consider potential roaming costs whilst tracking your activity.

Which software does the app require?

Please update the app to the latest iOS or Android version to make sure it runs smoothly.

Whom can I contact if I have difficulties downloading or using the app?

If this FAQ section does not answer your question or technical issue contact us on support@atlasgo.org and we will try to help you as soon as possible!
