• A new way of presenting and sharing routes ...

    In this blog post I tell you how you can add photos to a route point in the new WayPoint menu of MyRoute-app and create an animation of your route. A new refreshing way to present routes to your friends, club members or clients. At the same time, I explain that it is no longer necessary to email route files. Sharing routes can now be much easier, faster and more fun!

  • Waypoint menu is back up

    Hi guys,

    The waypoint menu is back up! See the official thread here:
    https://forum.myrouteapp.com/topic/1675/launch-upgrade-waypoint-menu/42

    all issues regarding routes not loading and/or favorites being gone should be fixed.

    kind regards,

    Timo

  • RE: LAUNCH: upgrade waypoint menu

    Attention Community,

    We have resumed the upgrade and it's going live as we speak. Thank you everyone for your time and patience. For purposes of transperancy I'm keeping this thread and the comments open. I'm also posting the log of updates when we were restoring functionality here.

    Kind regards,

    Timo

    Update Tuesday 13:35 PM:
    Deployment of the improved version has started. I've changed the post description back to it's original and posted this log of changes as a reply in this thread.

    Update Tuesday 12:11 PM:
    We have resolved the problems and are preparing to deploy the update somewhere between 1 and 2 PM today. Thank you everyone for your attention and time.**

    Update Tuesday 10:20 AM:
    We believe to have found a solution and have implemented it in our testing environment. If you experienced this problem and would like to help us and see if it is now resolved, please leave a reply on this thread. I'll mail you an access key to the testing environment.

    Update Monday 9 PM:
    Originally this thread was dedicated to celebrating the release of the new Waypoint menu and the fact that we finally managed to meet a deadline. Sadly, it appears that the waypoint menu was causing some unacceptable issues for some members. After developer Corjan spent all day working on fixing these bugs; we finally decided that at 9PM tonight (without any dinner) that pulling the update back until tomorrow morning would be for the best. We're all going to get some shut-eye here and see if we can resolve this in the morning and then quickly wipe any mention of it under the rug.

    Our working technical theory is that it isn't the waypoint menu update itself that is causing these issues. Neither is it the add-photos feature or any of the bugfixings we tied onto the update. It's everything together, that is apparently highlighting a more underlying technical flaw that's to do with resource management of your device/system. Put bluntly: older, slower, systems suffer while newer, faster, systems do not. This is also the prime reason why this didn't happen on any system of MRA staff. The problem also didn't show up during the testing phase of this fix, which is strange as well.

    The milestone project for tomorrow will be to fix and resolve this underlying problem and trying to get a testing system that qualifies as "old and slow" to verify our fix. As the day progresses, I'll keep you personally updated through this thread.

    Thanks for your time and understanding. If you see Murphy, please do give him a kick on my behalf.

    Yours sincerely,

    Timo Martosatiman
    Chief Operating Officer

  • RE: All Favourites gone and existing routes won't load - Grrrrrrr!

    Hi Colin,

    We've put all the old stuff back because we weren't able to resolve the issue in time. As @Reinhard-32 pointed out, this thread contains an explanation of what happened and where we're headed now to fix everything.

    Still, I'm sorry you've been negatively surprised before we could resolve the issue.

    Kind regards,

    Timo

    Hello everyone,

    After working on this throughout the day we haven't been able to resolve it. Sadly, this meant pulling everything offline until tomorrow. I've adjusted the topic to reflect that sentiment.

    Your routes should be working again with the "old" waypointmenu.

    Kind regards,

    Timo

    @Jack-van-Tilburg

    Tested your route both on MS Edge and Google Chrome, both load the routeplanner correctly and show the route. On chrome the loading took a little longer (a little strange, but nothing otherworldly) but the route loaded. How long have you waited? Do you see the blue web-loading bar on the top of your browser move at all?

    @Reinhard-32 thank you very much for this info. While I can't reproduce this myself this will help our developers in the search for a solution.

    Kind regards,

    Timo
