      Thanks,
      Yes we have signed a licence agreement to integrate Admiralty charts into Avalon. We are starting with UK, Croatia, Spain and Portugal.
      We have also added the mega quilted charts from the NOAA. Those are free. Their quality and precision and really great. We will use the same technology to integrate UKHO charts.

      Not yet but I can add it.
      Please note that this polar will only be available within Avalon.
      Once you have confirmed that you are an Avalon Offshore user, I will calculate and add this polar.

        Hi Phil, i’m a Avalon offshore User V3.0.1. My Premium ends at 2018/04/28. I’ll use it first time in a few days in a race.
        And how can i add more than 1 waypoint?
        Thank you! A

          Hi Andreas,

          I will calculate and add the First 47.7 tomorrow so that you have it for the race.
          Please feel free to send us a picture of your boat if you want that we illustrate our polar database with it.

          Do you need the racing option for the race ? It is free in 2017 and will help you manage the start. If yes, there is a doc on how to get access to the racing version here: http://www.avalon-routing.com/new/documents/users-guide/

          To add a second waypoint (and a third, a fourth, etc, etc), just tap on the blue line between the start and the first waypoint or the first waypoint and the arrival.
          You can create as many as you need with different parameters on each of them.

          I let you know when the 47.7 is ready.

          Good regatta,
          Phil

            And i’ll send a picture of my 47.7 to the devt mail, maybe it’s ok..

            Many Thanks!!
            Andreas

            I got the picture… very nice boat… thanks
            To validate you on the racing option, I need the id that you created when you connected to Avalon Cloud.
            Thanks,
            Phil

    Hi Phil, thank you for the 47.7 polar, looks very good….

    But the App makes trouble. If i load a saved route or use an old route, the app freezes in the computing window. And i have to delete the App and Start again!? Do you have an idea?

    Regards. Andreas

      This can happen when you use routes that have been saved with an older version of Avalon, as saved route parameters have evolved over time.
      Please make sure that you are always using the latest Avalon version (now 3.0.1) and that should ensure consistency between saved routes.
      Another suggestion is to save your routes (calculated or navigation) on our server using the Avalon Cloud facility. This can also be use to share routes between tablets or even between friends.

    Hello Phil, do you have the polar files of an RM 1200/Fora marine? I am thinking of starting with Avalon …

      Hi Christian,

      You will get much better results if you calculate the vpp by yourself using our Avalon VPP system as they will be customized to your boat setup.
      Please see the tab VPP on this site. There is also a video tutorial.

      However, il you prefer, we can calculate and add to our library a standard VPP file for the RM 1270

      Hi,
      Should we load them in the standard library or as a model in Avalon VPP ?`
      The 2 options are possible but Avalon VPP is better as you can customize them as needed.

      Which sailsets do you need ?
      Phil
