1. Hey everyone, We’re going to start a weekly email to surface interesting threads in the forums. No worries, you can easily unsubscribe if you don’t find it interesting. If you’re like me, it’s nice to have someone willing to poke around a big community like ours and find the most interesting stuff. Saves time and I hate missing something great. It worked really well when we had someone discovering the best photos for the home page rotation back in the day. And if you have something fascinating to post, maybe this email does everyone some good by getting it noticed. Let us know what you think when you get it. Your feedback will make it better as we go (thread). Thanks! Baldy & rudy1220

    We are ready for Rally Navigator Beta testing to get feedback.

    Rally Navigator is a new, simple way to create Rally routes and print roadbooks.

    Using the power of Google Earth and your GPS, you can create, print, and share a Dakar-style roadbook.


    As usual we were hoping for more progress, but have run out of time as Dave (GSNorCal) is headed off to Peru for the Dakar Rally tomorrow (Wish I was going with him!!!). That said, it looks pretty good!

    I would like to get 5-10 new users testing the program, get some feedback, make updates and then let another additional group of users take a test drive.

    If you want full access to create and print roadbooks, please email me mike@rallynavigator.com (No PM's I need your email to send an invite)

    I would appreciate all constructive feedback as we continue to develop this project.

    Sorry for the cross post - If I violated the ADVRider code of ethics - Feel free to NUKE.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Have been using it in chrome, wondering at the (lack of) speed, will try in Firefox. The ui is amazingly awesome!

    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

    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:freaky
