No Touch Orienteering = Smartphones only

Orienteering, as a sport, has permanently changed. The two drivers of this change are the widespread availability of GPS receivers and magnetic compasses in smart phones and smart watches, and social norms regarding personal interaction and contact. Several Orienteering clubs are attempting to maintain schedules with “no-touch” events, but these events have no mechanism to safely make money, and require the use of a compass, which many people do not own.
