Version History (Sure-Path Rover)
  • "Event Sub ID" setting added for scoring purposes. This allows multiple lakes at the same site to be used simultaneously and scored correctly.
  • Updated some displays in survey mode:
    • Added axial widths for gate and ski buoys for use in doing pre-tournament checks.
    • Added axial width for end-course camera position. Removed angle display for same.
  • Deviations now shown in Boat Lane Jump mode.
  • Summary screen now shown at end of Jump pass.
  • Audible warnings now given at user defineable width.
  • Some internal changes to support a desktop database.
  • New Rule 8.15 implemented. This comes into effect 02 Feb 2021. If used for tournament before that date, please see Confederation guidance first. Please also download and install the latest version of the Judging application.
  • Driver selection can now be done in the app as well as from the scoring software if linked.
  • Bug in Jump 3rd segment time now fixed.
  • Separated out Sure-Path and NTRIP Mountpoints and Passwords. This means that to switch between using a Sure-Path base and a public base, just the "RTK Error Source" setting needs to be toggled.
  • When using a public NTRIP corrections source and setting the NTRIP Mountpoint, the app now automatically retrieves a list of available Mountpoints to choose from.
  • You can no longer use ECs for mapping a jump course since often these are not positioned particularly accurately. See FAQs for more information on which buoys are used for mapping.
  • Replay speeds can now be set to 50%, 100%, 150%, 200% and 300%.
  • Bug when switching to "Course B" fixed.
  • Some display items tweaked:
    • In Boat Lane Mode, the header shows the course selected plus the driver name.
    • In Survey Mode, gate buoy axial widths are displayed as a check against the homologation survey.
  • Many other minor tweaks and bug fixes.
  • Bug in Jump Video UDP export fixed.
  • Some improvements to the Slalom boat lane display.
  • Added ability to revert to previously installed version (useful if there is an unexpected bug in the latest  version).
  • Some internal re-organisation and minor bug fixes.
  • Introduced a "Buoy Locator" function (accessed from the Survey Mode menu). In this mode, distance and direction to whichever buoy is selected in Survey Mode is displayed. This allows the user to "find" a course after the winter or just to check whether any particular buoy has moved since last homologated.
  • Introduced a "Scatter" diagram (accessed from the main screen menu). This allows you to get a good measure of the accuracy of the system's GPS readings. If the overall spread of readings over say a 1 minute interval is within a 1cm radius, this indicates that any individual reading is within a centimetre accuracy. Ensure the antenna stays stationary whilst taking readings.

    Unfortunately this feature is only available on receivers shipped after 1st September 2020 (or factory reconfigured).
  • More scoring integration.
  • Bug fixes.
  • Slalom Survey Mode: Added display of course length when entrance and exit gates have been mapped.
  • Jump Survey Mode: Added video measurement buoys.
  • Internal restructuring to avoid the apparent inexplicable loss of survey data.
  • Experimental: Introduced the concept of a "Pylon Antenna Offset". This allows the boat antenna to be mounted off centre (and more out of the way from flying handles and/or people) and the offset compensated for within the software. See Boat Lane Settings.
  • More scoring integration.
  • More scoring integration
  • Bug fixes
  • More scoring integration
  • Minor bug fix in scoring integration
  • Added some scoring integration
  • Minor bug fixes and improvements
  • Jump Survey Mode:
    • Ramp angle now shown (fields R1 & R2)
    • Distance offsets shown for field R
  • Minor bug fixes and improvements
  • Simplified loading of boat lane courses. In Boat Lane mode, removed "Load File..." followed by "Set As Boat Lane A/B" and replaced with just "Select Course A/B".
  • Added option to have one or two courses available as a toggle (simplifies single lake sites).
  • Removed automatic loading of previously used homologation file. Instead, user is prompted the first time Survey Mode is selected.
  • Added ability to transfer homologation files from rover to rover phones.
  • Removed user setting "Boat Track Smoothing Factor". Now fixed internally.
  • Removed "Show Full Stats" boat lane menu item. Now fixed at "Off"
  • Relabelled "Course 1" and "Course 2" to "Course A" and "Course B".
  • Bug Fix: Course bearing displayed wrong when in Survey Jump Mode.
  • The "Hobe Lake" bug fixed (see 1.3.3)
  • Bug Fix: Jump homologation giving wrong "offsets from ideal" for MTs, ETs and ECs.
  • GPS status indicator added to End of Pass summary panel.
  • GPS status indicators now colour coded:
    • Red: GPS only - no error data from Base available
    • Yellow: DGPS or Float - error data from Base available but Rover not yet reached full RTK Fix.
    • Green: Full RTK Fix mode enabling course mapping and boat lane tracking.
  • Previous "fix" undone (it introduced another problem).
  • App icon updated
  • Fixed bug which only showed when mapped course is almost exactly north/south (thank you Hobe Lake Club).
  • Corrected a misinterpretation of the deviation rules. Optional re-rides now NOT indicated in circumstances where deviation is greater than 20cm for periods when the boat is outside of the -10m to +10m range on each ski buoy.
  • Minor bug fixes and improvements.
  • Added "version history" screen.
  • Boat Lane Tracking
    • New - two modes for showing deviations introduced. "Tournament" mode show deviations and cumulatives as normal as per the Rules. "Training" mode show deviations at or within 0.1s of the boat being at the guide buoys. Indications of whether a pass would be OK in tournament and training modes MAY NOT MATCH.
    • When not in "Tournament" mode, only the actual two readings used for deviation at each buoy are coloured blue.
    • Re-instated "Offset" reading on End of Pass panel.
  • Minor bug fixes and improvements.
  • Boat Lane Tracking
    • Individual deviation readings that may contribute to deviation measurements "at the buoy" are coloured blue (the highest two readings towards the skier within the 20 metre area are averaged).
  • Boat Lane Tracking
    • Added markers to show 10 metres before and 10 metres after each ski buoy to indicate over what area deviations are being measured.
    • Enlarged size of End-of-Pass summary screen and increased font sizes
    • Added option to only show a "pylon" position indicator instead of an image of a tournament boat.
  • Minor bug fixes and improvements
