Canal Planner

Believe it or not, I have searched the "Help" section before writing here.

Can anyone tell me what time allowance is made for transiting a lock.  The planner has me passing through the Wigan lock at speed of light, or at least considerably faster than I could manage.

Re: Canal Planner

which lock at Wigan?

On the Preferences page you can set various speeds and timings:

Planning a route through the main flght shows that Canalplan thinks it's about 4 hours..... which is what you'd expect given that the default is 10 minutes per lock in a broad flight.

Re: Canal Planner

Thanks Stephen,  I am just starting out and take considerably longer than 10 mins.
Another question if  may, I struggle to find this forum, could you put a menu option on the Home page.  I go via Bugs & Ideas at present
Thanks

Re: Canal Planner

That's the only place you can select it from, but I'm sure that Stephen and Nick will look at it.

Re: Canal Planner

The forum is tucked away down here because we're not running the forum as a Canal forum - its just here for posting things that aren't really bug issues and it also gives us a place to discuss things that become too long for the discussion block on a page.

So really it is part of the "Changes, bugs and ideas"

Re: Canal Planner

Not sure if this is the correct place to piggy back, however, here goes.  Is this Canal Planner available to download to a mobile phone ??  I can't seem to find it when I search for this planner from my phone.  Thanks in advance.

Re: Canal Planner

No Chris it's not  and its something we've been asked to do several times but have decided not to.

There is some work being done on Open Canal Map for Android to allow it to import exported routes from Canalaplan but that's still in a work in progress.

We have looked at providing a set of APIs which third party apps can access to do route planning but its pretty much low in priority ... below fixing bugs and getting things working properly on the website.

Re: Canal Planner

You can export PDFs or you can export various data formats for loading into other applications.

And as I said Open Canalmaps will able to take a canalplan export file (with timings) and be able to use that to tell you how you are progressing.

Re: Canal Planner

Hi, I was looking to export my plan as a PDF
I saw the option on one page but have lost it.
Can you point me in the right direction?
