Avm Marker mode is not creating map. It only works after computer restart. What could be wrong?

You should use arrow keys for robot control in "Marker mode" (it is important for route recording).

See here for more details:

It would be good if you could shoot video that will provide more details regarding your situation.

* Connect your robot to AVM Navigator

Just use the variables that described below for connection of your robot
to AVM Navigator:

Use variable NV_TURRET_BALANCE for camera turning:

NV_TURRET_BALANCE - indicates the turn degree amount.
This value range from -100 to 100 with forward being zero.

Use for motor control NV_L_MOTOR and NV_R_MOTOR variables that have range
from -100 to 100 for motion control ("-100 " - full power backwards,
"100" - full power forwards, "0" - motor off).

You also can used alternative control variables
(motors range from 0 to 255 with 128 being neutral):

NV_L_MOTOR_128, NV_R_MOTOR_128 - motors control
NV_TURRET_128 - control of camera turning
NV_TURRET_INV_128 - inversed control of camera turning

* How to get start

1. Open RoboRealm dialog window.

2. Make sure that "Camera" button is pressed in RoboRealm dialog window
   and also you should check out the camera resolution (it must be 320x240 pixels).
3. Call the dialog window of AVM Navigator (click on it at video-processing pipeline)
   and then switch to "Nova gate mode". Now you can control your robot by arrow keys
   and also you can turn robot camera by "Delete" and "Page Down" keys ("End" key will
   set the camera in front position). If camera was turned you have to press "End"
   for alignment before continuing of robot moving.

Also you can try to train with "AVM Quake 3 mod" for acquaintance with "Marker mode"
and "Navigation by map" modes: http://www.roborealm.com/help/AVM_Navigator/Setup_avm_q3mod.exe

Also I have some pretty videos from user aka 96rus that made testing of AVM Navigator on his robot with router DIR-320 that was used as the gate for connection of the web-camera and virtual COM port channel (for servo/motor controller) to desktop computer by Wi-Fi connection:

And it works fine :)
