    Tripy is now being used to write the dakar roadbooks not just for assistance vehicles routes.

    Holding my breath for a US map release but in the meantime I have started using mine a bit for my own without maps. Now to master the software to write the paper copy.

    here is a short clip of me using a Tripy with a the roadbook function enabled and done by trippy for me encoded from GPX tracks I sent them. Like I said I am holding my breath for a US release. The screen works in bright light well and has a great track function too!

    Maybe by spring I will have a few days routes done here locally.

    We are making slow steady progress on Rally Navigator and are hoping to have a sneak release for ADVRider in December.

    Here is a screenshot with the recently added Tulip drawing function:

    I have to say, our man Paul did a great job with the road drawing tool. It's really easy to create nice smooth curves, or straight lines.

    Big progress on Rally Navigator lately:

    • Roadbook Header is coming together
    • Tulip drawing is looking good.
    • Navigation Icons can Drag, Drop, Rotate and Scale.
    Above is current screen shot of our Rally Navigator Beta site:

    We are on track for a Beta release sometime in December.

    Huge thanks to Paul van Dinther and Dave (GSNorCal) for all the work bringing this project together.

    Stay tuned!

    does the software look for the actual picture of the road or does it work off of the superimposed roads displayed on GE? To clarify, will the software recognize a road hidden in the woods like all of the trails that we have in VT?

    There is no image recognition. We do have on our feature list the ability to use the Google Maps road data to snap a route to a Google road. So, if your hidden trail is in their database, then we will eventually be able to get that happening.

    We've made it super easy to import a GPX track and convert it to a route. So one option is to ride your route, then upload it and do the tulips and descriptions. Then share it.

    It is super easy to use, Dave. I think this is the best way to use it. Ride a loop, import the tracks, create a roadbook. Add details you remember.

    Thanks Duke! I think this method is the easiest for people who live near the route and also when getting it absolutely perfect isn't essential.

    Routes that we use for training or routes that HogWild develops for others to follow require a pre-running step, to record exact mileage and minute details. And he doesn't live near the routes. So, for that scenario it's best to draw the route, then go run it and take notes/corrections, then enter the corrections into the computer afterwards.

    Regardless, we designed the software to work either way.

    It is a img viewer with tripmaster, the image is a roadbook made with other programs.

    CZ translate more information

    61CS :wink: and craddle with remote possibility

    INFO: OffRoadNAVI runs on an ordinary PC with WinXP, Vista, 7
    For planning therefore do not have to install anything, just take the card from your device, insert into the PC and run the same exe OffRoadNAVI.exe and see the same map (of course on the big screen) and you can see the route (Tracks), or here to plan routes (Routes ).
