Yes, you can create road book from any electronic data you have. Roadbook is a set of pages and one page is one image file (gif, jpg, png, ...)
You will find more info here:
http://www.offroadnavi.com/en/maps-and-manuals/roadbook

RB and RallyNavigator - today you can simply export/print the rb into Pdf and than just convert it to image.
But we are discusing with Mike Shirley (from rally-navigator.com) direct export format which can have more futures than paper - for example auto-roll based on the distance, flashing exclamation marks, auto-colored direction mark (green/red), next 3 upcomming small icons or what ever we can imagine...

Hi Pihrt, I have reviewed your site and I followed the steps to create a roadbook, it is not very difficult, I created a "digital" roadbook with PDF rallynavigator files, now every page of the roadbook is an image, it seems easier, I usually participate in amateur races and put all the pages of paper sometimes is very hard ..
I have also seen in his video as moving forward-back, perfect.


I have now downloaded your FREE program and I am testing on the PC but I have to put maps ... I'll read the instructions calmly, then keep asking questions ...

Just a query, I see that you can put, "two maps" these maps have to be on the same map file?

Hello Pihrt, in these days I have tested your program with the car's gps system , i like how it works, this equipment is perfect for me, I can use for adventure travel and also for racing with road maps.

I have the RACE TRACER program (TRIPY ) to create roadbooks and i have discovered that I can create roadbooks directly from the program to offroadnavi, i put an image






I want to buy a unit and we continued talking, i'll send a mail

I am really excited about the X710 ! I just stumbled over it yesterday when I was doing some internet research for a Tripmaster.

This is exactly what I was looking for so many years....

Is it possible to use OpenStreetMaps ? If yes , how ?
It seems to have a MicroReflective Display. Can you post some screens/videos showing the readability under direct sunlight ?
Does it have a routing engine for vector maps ?

Thanks
Roland

I contacted the vendor. He responded very quick by email.

Turn by turn navigation is possible with the included Navigator Free (based on OpenStreetMaps)

http://navigatorfree.mapfactor.com/en/

I guess any other WinCE6 compatible Software would work also.
No BT Support though. This would make file transfer to/from device easier than WiFi and BT consumes less battery power.

For Offroad Maps you need to use MOBAC and use the TrekkBuddy format which then needs to be transferred to the SD Card. The SD Card can have a max. 16GB.

More questions/comments...

It's a pitty it is not running on Android. There is lots more Navi Apps there for Android than for WinCE.

Anyhow my main purpose for the X710 would be road book navigation which is nicely implemented I must say. In the Video explaining the roadbook there is an adjustable Odometer at the Top and a clock right next to it. Can the clock be replaced with CAP Heading ?

Can the SD Card be easily removed for file copying purpose ?
What about warranty ?

MOBAC is a nice tool for map creation but it can be time consuming depending on the scale of the area and the zoom levels you need. It would be helpful if the X710 is able to read the widely available Garmin compatible OpenStreetMaps directly without the use of MOBAC. I am on a 100Mb/s download link, so this is not the bottleneck. CPU is an Intel I7 Quad Core 3.1Ghz and 8GB of RAM on Win8 64-bit.






The corresponding Atlas file is around 135MB which is quite small in respect to the area selected and the zoom level.

Is the Remote control sold separately?

The X710 is using a UBLOX 6 GPS Receiver which has a top notch horizontal position accuracy of 2.5m and is Galileo ready.

It works also with 32GB SD card - tested. When transfering maps or data to navi use WiFi and FTP server function... you can connect it also directly with smartphone using "create WiFi Hotspot"

Yes it is possible. But this is not only "buttons on wire" - there is small electronics with chip inside - the remote is connected only by 3 wires and comunication is made over Serial protocol (TTL is standard, extra could be RS232).

For what purpose/device do you want to use it?

Galaxy S4 (Android).

I use it as a secondary GPS, but the touchscreen doesn't do well to gloves or vibrations.
