The Monav offline routing data repository has been updated!
The data in the repository, useful for offline routing with modRana, has been updated.

Also the infrastructure seems to be finally almost ready for unattended data updates, so in the near future the repository should be updated automatically every week.

BTW, the update itself takes about 30 hours - ~25 hours for planet splitting & ~5 hours for routing data generation.

Monav uses its own data repository, different from the modrana.org hosted one. But the routing data from the modRana repository should be compatible, but you will probably need to figure out where to store it so that Monav pick it up. I guess it will be somewhere in MyDocs ?

And don't forget to make a how-to in once you make it work.

The modRana website is currently down
This is a known issue - the kind people from the Masaryk University NLP lab kindly hosting the modRana website & the related Monav routing data repository had an unfortunate & nasty hardware failure and are currently working on bringing their infrastructure back online.

Due to the seriousness of the hardware failure, there is no firm estimate of how long the service restoration might take, but hopefully just a few days. In case it takes longer I will probably setup a temporary website on GitHub Pages or some other suitable project web hosting place.

The modRana website is back online!
The heroic NLP lab admins have been successful and the modRana website and the related Monav offline routing data repository are back online!

So far everything that has been there before the outage seems to be in its place as far as I can tell, but please let me know if you think something is missing, if you find broken links, etc.

One useful thing I would like to see in modRana is to "set home" in the settings.
Some way to have the map load at a preset location if there is no GPS fix.

I seem to find that modRana loads in the middle of the sea and have to zoom out move over and zoom in while offline. Many times I can query the map and plan my route without waiting for a GPS fix so this would be a helpful time saver.

Good to here your sites back up and running again.

Which platform ?

This is already kinda possible by creating a POI in the GTK GUI (available o the N900 & desktop) and then going to the POI details menu and using the "set as position" option. Not very discoverable and needlessly complicated.

Something like long pressing a place on map and selecting "set as current position" or being able to directly input coordinates should be also available.

At least on the N900 this happens as the system-wide location subsystem narrows down you position - first it finds out the country, then the region, etc. until it can reach a GPS based 3D fix. And unfortunately as it founds out the country it first zooms at the "center" of the country, resulting in the initial fix being in the middle of nowhere, until finally jumping to the actual place where you are.

I think I might already have a RFE somewhere for checking the fix quality and just discarding these spurious fixes until the correct one arrives (IIRC it can be detected from the fix metadata).

That way modRana would just show the last known position and then would jump to the actual GPS fix. Having a set "home" position might that would always be the focused when modRana starts up might also be useful. The concept of "home" coordinates could be useful also elsewhere, like "route home from where I am", etc.

This is where the modRana Monav offline routing data is stored:

http://data.modrana.org/monav/

also check out the modRana offline routing guide about how to use the routing data packs.

Well for me, N900 is the middle of the sea, Desktop is Brno the latter is possibly because there is no way to provide GPS data.

Never thought about a POI TBH, but yes I suppose a special Home POI could be useful.

Hello,

Apologies in advance if my question is answered elsewhere or this is the wrong thread for it.

I just installed modRana on my Jolla, and must say I rather like the look of it. Would very much appreciate to find out whether there is a way to:
- install offline routing,
- download map data for offline use.

Could anyone help me?
