Hockey Science & Technology manages and maintains the HockeyGPS system that has over 6,000 hockey related locations around the world. Hockey stick pin-drops are usually placed at the driveway entrance using longitude and latitude co-ordinates. The use of address information in other apps may not provide accurate results. The first year of access to the system is included with your purchase. One-year, two-year or lifetime system subscription renewal options are available through In-App purchase. Payment will be charged to your iTunes account.
HockeyGPS Pro offers the ability to create an optional user account on the HockeyGPS system. By choosing to do so, HockeyGPS Pro can be used on all of your devices associated with the same iTunes account.
If your local arena is not located in the HockeyGPS system, then use the built in form to upload and add your local hockey resource. New location contributions will be reviewed for approval within 24 hours.

In-app navigation can still be performed by tapping a hockey stick icon and then the yellow directional icon that appears to the left of the summary details. In the default map, change "Current Location" to "My Location" to get other details.
