How To Use Your PM4

Viewing a Verification Code

The PM3, PM4 and PM5 monitors generate a verification code for each piece. This is a 16-digit code that is based on workout date, distance and duration. If you are entering a piece for the Online Ranking you may want to edit your online logbook entry using the pencil icon and enter this code: doing so will mark your piece as IND_V in the Ranking and make it eligible for recognition as a world record (note, there is no need to enter a verification code if you are using the Concept2 Utility to upload your pieces, as these pieces are considered verified automatically). To get the verification code for a piece:

  1. Ensure your PM is running the latest firmware.
  2. Ensure the date and time on your PM is accurate.
  3. Row or ski your piece, taking care to set up your workout correctly.
  4. After you have completed your piece, select (View Detail) for the piece.
    • If you are using a LogCard or USB flash drive, go to LogCard Menu or USB Logbook > List By Date and select the magnifying glass icon for the workout you want to view.
    • If you are not using a LogCard, go to Main Menu > More Options > Memory and select the magnifying glass icon for the workout you want to view.
  5. On the View Detail screen, the fourth gray button on the right has no action associated with it. Press this button twice. The 16-digit verification code will be displayed in the upper right hand corner of the monitor.
