File import

Team:

Improving File import and route saving is the number one issue we are working on right now.

What works fine on our computers isn't working at all on some of software and hardware set ups our Beta testers are using.

In the future, we need to get Rally Navigator less sensitive to these variations.

For now, we are updating our Getting Started content and Welcome email to get new users started:

Optimize Your System for Rally Navigator
Firefox and Google Earth 6.2

Get the New Firefox with IPC Control turned OFF

Speed Test your computer here:

Google Earth plugin API speed test and more info
Modern computer with IPC off should be 40-60 Frames per second

This speed test issues a number of Google Earth plugin API calls for every frame drawn. The number of frames per second is a measure on how fast this is done.

Rally Navigator may make thousands of calls per second to the Google Earth plugin. This is called "Inter Process Communication" IPC for short. If each of those calls takes a tiny amount longer you immediately suffer massive performance penalties. These can be in the order of 5 - 10 times slower that they should be.





Turn off IPC Control to the Google Earth Plug In

Type "about:config" into your address bar, you'll get to a page with a lot of settings. Find the line for "dom.ipc.plugins.enabled =true" and toggle it to "false". Restart your browser and Firefox will run 3-5 times faster!

Get Google Earth 6.2 here

Rally Navigator works best using Google Earth Plugin 6.2
Not the latest GE 7.0 betas.



Get Google Earth Keyboard Shortcuts HERE


LOTS of work left to do.

Thanks for the feedback,
Mike

Did you do anything to improve loading time? I just loaded a track I started last week and it seemed much quicker than before.

Keep up the good work! I've started planting the idea to my local group to buy 6" roadbook holders.

So far, this is the best deal I've found for a manual holder: $45 USD + shipping

GPX Import Update - Like relationships, its complicated.

Inmates:

Here is some info regarding GPX import from our developer, Paul van Dinther at Planet in Action

Hi Mike, I had a close look at the various GPX files. Some indeed won't import properly. This is due to the fact that the "trk" (track) section is missing in the file.

It appears that some GPX exporters choose to describe the track using the "route" section in the GPX file and some of the files you gave me contain many routes.

It is clear different applications write GPX data in different ways. They are all compliant to GPX but it is such an elaborate scheme that the same information can be described in many different ways. I found three different formats of route data in the sample GPX files.

Right now, only "trk" is implemented.

Rally Navigator will currently only import GPX files that were saved with route data in the "trk" (Track) section of the file, not with route data in the "Route" fields

It is possible to convert Route GPX files to "Track" oriented using GPSBabel

Here is a screen shot of the GPSBabel track converter with the proper windows open to set the conversion from "routes" to "tracks"

I would appreciate if a few of our testers will try this and report back.



Obviously this could be more user friendly, but does give us an immediate answer to the failed loading some of you were experiencing.

We are exploring the capability to import GPX files that are also in "Route" format.

For those of you with extra time and brain cells, here is more info regarding GPX file types and conversion:
GPSBabel - FREE file conversion program

GPSBabel - GPX file type info

GPX: the GPS Exchange Format
Thanks,
Mike

Sweet

This is exactly what I have been looking for to put together the routes for our annual Selkirks Rally. Let me know if you need more testers!

Thanks

Another tester?

Hey Mike! If you can accept another tester, I've sent you a email!

RB Editor is just not doing it for me anymore, and the only apple I have, I'm eating now!

i'm in the middle of creating a roadbook and reported already several issues. Most important "Km" vs "Miles" or even "Meter" option for non US regions would be great for global use.

But the project is great and love how it works. Also did reating roadbooks in MS-Word, later in MS-Visio (with VBA code on the backend) still wasn't satisfied turned occasionally to TT Roadbook Editor.

But now with RallyNavigator finally a piece of work that can stand my heat...

I wouldn't mind testing it you need another. I am not 100% sure my home computer will run it but worth a shot.

Email sent.

Running it on my non home PC right now which is an HP Z400 workstation with 4 processors and 4 gigs of ram running windows XP and it is a 64 bit system. Running GE 6.2 and Google Chrome browser and so far my 700 point GPX file loaded nicely into the application and I am off and editing without issue.
