Routegadget 2

Latest news

Version 1.5 was released on 28th July 2018 and is installed on all routegadget.co.uk sites.

This includes a refactored back end which should be totally transparent to users, but means we can start thinking seriously about a new and improved front end. There are two changes that might be useful:

  • GPS adjustment has been significantly improved, so it is now possible to make sensible adjustments between two locked points.

  • Manager dialogs should now be aligned correctly if you are running Firefox on LINUX.

What is RouteGadget?

Routegadget is a Web application for drawing and comparing orienteering routes. The original version was developed by Jarkko Ryyppö, and it is now used by orienteering clubs around the world.

Why Routegadget 2?

The original Routegadget makes extensive use of Java, and this has caused increasing difficulties. Routegadget 2 allows you to view existing Routegadget information in any modern (HTML5-compliant) browser without the need for Java. It also adds a modern user interface as well as updated functionality for analysis.
