Rally Navigator - How it Works
Click the Map & Create Your First Waypoint
- Enter Route Name and Description in top of Header
- Single Click along route to create Track Handles
- Click Track handle again to create all Waypoints along Route to Finish
- Be careful about direction of path leaving Waypoint, it's used to automatically capture CAP heading and draw simple Tulip
Waypoint Editor and Details
- Complete Tulip Drawings: Activate Waypoint editor by double clicking first Waypoint and clicking "Edit" box in upper right of the Waypoint.. The view will rotate and zoom so path entering navigation point is at bottom of screen (where the dot will be in the Tulip Drawing). Use drawing tools by dragging a desired road segment into Waypoint editor and then dragging the orientation of the road to create tulip, so curves in road and angles of roads at intersection exactly match.
- Navigation Icons and Signs: Drag and drop proper Navigation icons and signs into Waypoint. Rally Navigator utilizes full library of FIM Navigational Icons.
- Text Descriptions: Add Text Descriptions with turn info and navigational hints to each Waypoint.
- Continue along Route till you have fine tuned Track and created details for each Waypoint.

Pre-Running and Route Checking
- Physically pre-run and check the Route and make any corrections prior to investing time drawing detailed Tulips.
- Capture a GPX Track of the Pre-Run to help with final Route editing
- While pre-running, check mileage, headings, etc. at every Waypoint. Mark all Landmark and Terrain details. This can be done with a voice recorder or note pad.
Finalizing the Route After the Pre-Run
- Overlay GPX File of the Pre-Run
- Review the Overlay GPX Track and your route notes to make any necessary changes/corrections to Route.
- Add final detailed tulips, Icons and Waypoint Descriptions.
