As a suggestion, would it be possible in the futur to buy a upgrade license that would give you full access to all the option that the program has per roadbook that you make?
I find that the free version does not have enough info on it.

For example, I plan on making 1 maybe 2 roadbooks next summer. I would really like to use the full program, but I am not sure I will use it enough to warrant the 50$ upgrade.
I would not mind paying a little extra to get the full version per roadbook though.

Thanks

Rally Navigator - Sample Route, GPX, PDF files and Premium Feature update! ;)

Inmates:

I spent some time putting together an email for all of our Trial Users that has links to sample files and lists most of the new features we have added in the recent past.

I thought you guys might enjoy playing with the sample files for GPX Route Import, GPX Overlay, Completed Route pdf files and links to completed routes in Navigator

Have a look around and let me know if it all works/makes sense.

Thanks for the continued feedback.

Mike

Great improvement :)

One important improvement would be the ability to write a distance in the central column, like in this pic:

Need help with sample GPS files from different units and manufactures

Team:

Currently Rally Navigator will import a GPX track to create a route - We are working on a feature that will also allow a rider to manually drop waypoints in your GPS as you ride along a route. When importing both the captured Tracks and Waypoints to Navigator in a GPX file, these dropped waypoints will become Navigational waypoints in the road book. For example, riding along and marking a ditch, turn, landmark, etc.

We have this feature working well when using my Garmin GPSMap60cxs.

GPX file types have quite a bit of variation between gps units, desktop software etc.

I need a few more sample gps files for our developer to analyze so we can support more units and GPX oddities.

Can a few of you guys go ride a (or drive in your car) a 10-15 mile route and drop 10-20 waypoints along the way and send me the GPX and Garmin (or whatever brand you are using) files?


Please send the files to mike@rallynavigator.com and include details of what gps unit and desktop software you used.

Thanks a lot!

Distance icons - good idea.

Luis:

Thanks for the good idea - we are working on it

These will be pre made icons 10-25-50-100-200m with arrows at each end.

Icons will rotate and scale to fit your needs


Shouldn't take too long

Thanks again,

Penalties

Hi
I like the feature that can overlay the GPX of the actual route I rode, and compare it with the route planned in Rally Navigator.
Would it be possible to do a rule check, and generate a score?
Penalties for missing a waypoint by more than some limit, and speeding by more than some limit, could be given, and a total penalty calculated.
Possible?

Just an idea. It is already a great program

Creating a detailed route with GPX Track and Waypoint Import

Inmates:

We have made good progress on this new feature, it's up on Rally Navigator now and ready to use.

Previously, we could just import a capture GPX Track without any Waypoints into Navigator, a user had to create ALL Waypoints along the track on the Navigator software.

Rally Navigator: New and IMPROVED!

Track and Waypoint Import: To create a roadbook using this feature, simply ride along the route and manually create Waypoints in your Garmin GPSMap60 GPS unit at each Navigation Waypoint. Save this file as a GPX using Mapsource or Basecamp. In Navigator, click 'Create a Route" then use the "Import GPX" Premium feature.

Navigator will create the Route and Waypoints in the Roadbook. You will probably need to clean it up a bit. All of the route info is easily edited using Navigator: Move, Delete or Create more Waypoints and Tracks, Drag track handles to fine tune CAP headings and verify proper placement of Waypoints etc.

Currently this feature has been developed and tested using a Garmin GPSMap60cxs. GPX formats vary greatly between GPS units, other units may not work. If so, only a track will be imported.

Take it for a spin at www.rallynavigator.com

Please let me know if you are able to successfully use this feature with any other GPS units, I'm curious to know.

Thanks for your feedback.

Good idea - It's on the list.

Steve:

Interesting idea. I added it to the long list of development features.

We have lots of other stuff in the works so don't hold your breath...but it is very interesting!

Thanks for the feedback!

Taut is free

there are a lot of GPX files at www.transaustraliatrail.com.au

The ones i did are in the victorian section . South West adventure trail. Basecamp and Garmin.Gpsmap62s

That looks like a high powered program. best wishes in developing it.

Re: Where did the yellow dots go?

I havn't used Rally navigator for a while. The yellow dots that used to be at each "point" have disappeared, which is a bit disconcerting. I see that I can still add points by clicking, and now make then snap to roads with Ctrl-click. Attempts to adding with text (Ctrl-Alt-click) causes Firefox to hang.
Also how do I drag a point that I have created? Or change a point from one without a associated text to one with? Or delete a point that does not have associated text?
