    Calculating routes takes way too long

    I'm using 5.00.70 and I really like the software overall. It just takes so long to calculate routes. Even something that is 10 miles away takes a minute or more to calculate. This makes the program useless for me.

    When I first installed it, it seemed to calculate quickly but after installing this plugin: http://forums.fluxmedia.net/plugin-d...27-2010-a.html it now takes forever! Perhaps it is just a coincidence. I only tried calculating like one route before installing the plugin. I don't see why this should slow it down though. Its not just slow in CF but is slow even when just running GMPC by itself.

    This is under XP SP3.

    Any thing I can do to fix this? I'd really like to use this software but I can't afford the 1+ minute wait.

    If the plugin modifies core GMPC files (it used to-not sure if it still does), theres a pretty good chance its the cause. Routes usually don't take anywhere near that long even on very slow hardware.

    If it were me, I'd uninstall that plugin and GMPC (possibly CF as well), then reinstall GMPC (and CF ). Likely the routes will calculate with better times, meaning the plugin was the problem. Which is usually the case when a plugin messes with the core operating files of the program.

    lol its got nothing to do with the plugin. It'd take 10 seconds to run GMPC in standalone and check that.

    What are the system specs

    Interesting. I didnt think they made computers slower than my 2003 Vaio, which calculates routes in about 4 seconds, so unless he's running it on Pentium 3, it's certainly possible its the plugin which development seems to have dwindled. So I still vote to uninstall the plugin and GMPC, then reinstall GMPC. Im almost positive this will fix it.

    Validated by this statement:

    Sorry guys. I asked this question and never followed up after you guys were kind enough to try to help me.

    This is on a Fujitsu P1610 convertible. It has a 1.2GHz Intel Core Solo and 512MB Ram. I know its a little slow but when running the Garmin software I still have 175-200mb available ram and plenty of cpu headroom. My cpu usage is well below the 50% mark when trying to calculate the route and at times virtually no cpu activity is shown. So, I really don't think this is a processing issue. I just tried installing it with a fresh install of XP Pro SP3 (tablet edition) and it still takes forever. So even on a fresh install with no Centrafuse or the plugin, its still too slow.

    I tried running it on a more powerful machine under a virtual machine and had the same issue.

    Perhaps this is an intentional limitation of the demo?

    Yeah, a 15 day trial if I remember correctly.

    It is possible that the problem lies with the maps rather than the program.

    If the maps have any corruption in them, it breaks the way the software routes, causing dead ended nodes.

    I would definitely try what others were saying....uninstall GMPC, the maps and the plugin as a minimum, then reinstall just GMPC, test that on its on (Not in CF), then install the maps you require and test again, then install the plugin, and test again.
