They are on the top level of priority for getting to work on a tablet, but there is a fundamental issue with the supplier of the mapping data..."..." in that they have made it difficult for developers, like RTA, from resizing their data forms into sizes that can accommodate smaller tablets. At this exact moment, I am testing some issues on a LG G Pad 7.0 tablet (that is similar, I think to a Kindle HD 7) not going well.Originally Posted by Coman
Ultimately what we are planning on doing is creating an app that will run on mobile devices.
Now, I am able to create routes and add RAs using my smart phone -- an Android Turbo -- but the image of the map does not display. We actually have high hopes that we'll be able to get the maps to display on mobile devices. The scheduled turnaround for trials on this could be as soon as tomorrow. So, check back here.
But, now as I re-read your comment -- you should be able to log-in just fine with the Kindle 7 -- I will have to do some more testing.
Thanks for the heads-up!
Oh, and if you are reading this for the first time and you are just starting the journey using these RTA Custom Mapping tools -- here is an explanation about how to use the Map Center tools to make detailed maps of your route!
