Huge TrackNav update in the wings...

Iīm almost done a huge update to the TrackNav system in place here on The enhanced version includes loads of new features that should make it more detailed, faster, and with smaller images...

Some of the upgrades include:

  • Anti-Aliased images
  • Switch from PNG to JPG and cut the image size down by a factor of 10
  • Auto best-map selection - use the most detailed Chart from the onces currently loaded on the site
  • User Route Management for route owners
  • Use memcaching (better performance)

Thatīs some of the major ones anyway. I need to re-plot most of the existing images because of the format change from PNG to JPG and that is going to tax the server a bit so Iīll be waiting for a late night maintenance window to make the change - but you should see the new version on-line in the next few days.
