Hey: I just resent the email I sent yesterday. Hope to hear back.


The Pine Barrens 300 routes are perfect for this.


Thanks and Happy New Year

Jack

Re-installed G.E. to recomended version (had the newer one installed) and now it won´t start in Rally Navigator?

You need to run the old version of GE, the 6.2 Beta.

Firefox is a game changer, I was running it in Safari and it was slow as hell on my Mac.

And what about Chrome? I have IE and Chrome, don't want to add another browser. Also I don't understand how to open GE changing browser... any clue? Many thanks and Happy 2013

I've been using Chrome and Google Earth 6.2 with no real issues. I got 20fps on the performance tester posted in the invite email. It's by no means buttery smooth, but it works just fine.

No problem with Chrome, really. What I don't understand is how to use all the symbols,
roads, signs, terrain etc. I am able to add a text for each point but not those symbols,
or they are not available on this Beta test? Also would it be possible to have a "switch"
button to have KM instead of Miles first? About the symbols, a legenda would be useful
for the non experts and maybe you could add other symbols, for example I could pass
you the ones used on the Italian Motorally Championship.
A lot are similar but there are other ones missing here.

Another little problem is when you print: you don't get distance and number of waypoints
and coordinates on the very first page

Anyway, a really excellent start, many thanks

Drag and drop into the tulip box .. Im sure they will have more symbols..

one thing I would like to see is when you "hover" the pointer over a symbol it will pop up what it is.. and the ability to right click or drag and drop from my gallery ...

The tulip creation is the most consuming part for me. I converted a GPX route last night, 100 miles took me 3 hours or so.

A thought I had for tulip creation, is there a way to trace the actual corner or road detail on GE
and then drag it into the Tulip window of the RB. That would get the detail of each corner pretty spot on and possibly make things go quicker.

Now it works, before.. not.... who knows why! I think would nice to add symbols also in the right columns as well, you see them quite often in the various rally raids around the world, especially the danger signs so don't mess with proper route symbols

Coming Navigator updates...

Guys:

Stuff in the pipeline:

Dragging icons into the right side frame
Km - Mile toggle
Fix the wp and mileage in the printed header
More Custom icons
Our developer is looking at a different file type (kml rather than gpx) that may load MUCH more quickly. (this should also make the program less browser dependent)
Improved waypoint editor design with easier access to road drawing tools and drag and drop simple text descriptions (left, stay left, straight, stay right, right)

My understanding is that drawing a tulip directly on top of the google earth image is very difficult technically. It's on my wish list, but towards the bottom as we add more (easier) features.

Keep the feedback coming

Firefox for Navigator

Team:

Have any of you turned off the IPC controls in Firefox? It's HUGE improvement.

More info and directions are here:

http://www.planetinaction.com/speedtest/

Run the speedtest before and after.

Please let me know.

Our goal is to get the software more efficient where it will run fine without all of this messing around.

Thanks for the opportunity to test out your software, it's been fun so far!

Another thought.... would it be possible to use your software to create smaller format enduro style roll charts for Turkey runs or actual enduro? I know it's not your focus but thought I would ask.
