    @DaveRMS should know the size of all of the waypoint bubbles. I think it is definable in the OpenRally format he has been working on.

    Open Rally doesn't actually specify any defaults, but it does allow overriding. Defaults generally come from the rule set an event is following, such as FIM or FIA, for example.

    Is it possible to use the app in landscape mode and still get the road book, or can you only use trip computer?
    I want my phone mounted in landscape mode due to smaller footprint on the bars. Would be nice if i could use a android phone, but the way it looks, only iphone rb apps support landscape?

    Hi there!

    I want to modify a segment of an existing RoadBook. I see I can move waypoints but it doesn't snap to roads even when doing "cmd click" ? Thank you for advices.

    Hello. Snap to roads only works at the end of a route. Not in the middle of a route to readjust points.

    Hi, we've seen some changes as Mike adopted the new notes. All nice but as we are on the doorstep of our event with all roadbooks triple checked it would be cool to be able to roll back to the classic French style. Also I'd hate to do away with the fantastic 'TDSPP' note that kept me going through the desert for so many years ;-)

    NEW 2020 FIM/FIA Specification Color Icons are HERE!

    Rally Navigator now offers 2020 Color Icons - Old format Icons are automatically updated to new format when roadbook is loaded.

    English abbreviations replace French - French icons that are no longer specified in new format will remain in roadbooks, but cannot be added to new roadbooks

    Team!

    Roadbook Auto Highlighting Stuff:

    Blue WP.png

    • Working on PINK Highlight Arrow and Segment Box fill for 400m > Waypoints
    • This WAS the Blue Vertical Lines previously

    Question regarding RED BORDER Highlighting of Dangers in Roadbooks:


    Keep Current Rally Navigator Format
    Red Border Boxes around !,!!,!!! Dangers

    Live Color Sample.png


    OR Update to 2020 FIM Format
    RED BORDER Box around !!! Dangers only

    Let's hear what the ADV Racing Forum has to say about this semi-trivial issue!

    Hi,

    It would be nice to have a 'test setup' for rallynavigator. I'm quite conservative with systems that run in production, with the most recent changes being the second surprise for our roadbook right before we go to print. As it is 'the printed version of our event' I like to be in control of all aspects I show our competitors.

    All cheers for developing the program, it works really well. But I have become a bit scared with all the sudden changes (and no roll back!)

    All the best,

    I have a narrow Moose Offroad roll chart holder. I purchased 2.25 " adding machine paper. Using Rally Nav, can I print a route on the paper roll using my Canon ink jet printer? I'm sure I can make a holder for it above the printer so it will feed in without issues.

    We use a thermal receipt printer to print the narrow charts for the Desert 100 Adventure / Dual Sport Poker Run route. It works great but was a little difficult to get set up originally. Not so sure about your setup.
