Thank you for using Autodesk® Vehicle Tracking 2018 Update 1.
This readme contains important information about Autodesk® Vehicle Tracking 2018 Update 1 that may not be included in the Help. For reference, save or print this document. It is strongly recommended that you read this entire document before you install.
File Format Change
Vehicle Tracking Update 1 changes the File Format of the drawings. If you have previous versions of Vehicle Tracking or Hotfix 1, you need to upgrade to edit Vehicle Tracking objects and Civil 3D Roundabouts. If you do not have the upgrade, the newer format Vehicle Tracking commands will be disabled and the Vehicle Tracking entities will be proxy objects.
AutoCAD Map 2018 Hotfix 1
AutoCAD Map 2018 Hotfix 1 should be installed to avoid the issue of grip editing in Vehicle Tracking sometimes produce unpredictable results. Here is a link to more information about the issue and the hotfix download: AutoCAD Map 2018 Hotfix 1.
Confusing Entry/Exit prefix for some design check warnings on roundabouts were removed where the value being checked applied to both sides of the approach.
Deflection Min and Max Values
Fixed an issue where the deflection min and max values in the Properties dialog are not the values defined in the Standards dialog.
Dialog Box Resizing
Vehicle library, parking and junction explorers now have minimum sizes applied when resizing.
Drawing Unit Settings from Civil 3D
Drawing units settings are disabled when you have opted to get the values from the active Civil 3D drawing.
Get Units and Driving Side of the Road Settings
The option to get units and driving side of road from the drawing has been added to the start up dialog box and the Settings Wizard.
Grip Size and Tooltip Options
Removed confusing grip size and tooltip options from System Settings.
Lane Separator Road Markings
Lane separator road markings have been added to slip lanes.
Make Default Button
Removed the need to use the Make Default button when changing options that only take effect at start up.

Parking Tools Enhancement
Parking tools have improved messages when selecting an unsuitable entity (like a circle) to create a parallel row of bays from.

Improved the roundabout corridor and update performance in Civil 3D.
Crossfall at Blend Point
Roundabout approach roads can now have their crossfall at the blend point taken into account when calculating curb line elevations.

Removed the confusing Exit/Entry label on the design checks for roundabouts that applied to the adjusted alignment of the arm.
Explode to 2D Polylines
Exploding roundabouts now creates optimized 2D polylines.
Improved the odd geometry of Roundabouts when dragging the blend and deviation point. The issue was caused by cut down calculation to increase speed and usability when dragging.
