I have an Nvidia Quadro K620 and if I turn on any of the OpenGL acceleration options in the EnRoute preferences it seems to degrade, rather than accelerate, 3D Performance.  Is there a list of OpenGL cards that are compatible with Enroute 5?

Jesse, 
We don't have a specific list of supported devices, but I have found that some PC's that just use the onboard graphics chipset sometimes run a little better. Its hard to tell why you might be getting those errors. Make sure you have the latest drivers for you card. 
Also what version of Enroute are you using? If you go to the help menu and click about then look at the file version. If you have Enroute 5.1.0.27 you might want to try upgrading to the latest version on our website 5.1.0.70. 

Best regards,
Aaron

5.1.70  I upgraded from .27 hoping it would fix it, it did not.  Latest driver is installed, I was also unclear on what the different levels of Open GL Compatibility in the options was tied to.

Jesse, 
The different levels of OpenGL are there to help you configure what your computer setup can handle or is compatible with. Here is some info about the different levels of the OpenGL and what they do. Hopefully this helps. I would try using some of these different options and then stay with the one that works best. 

OpenGL Level 3
This is the most advanced option. It uses the graphics card on your computer to perform OpenGL rendering in the perspective view. This mode is new in EnRoute 5.
OpenGL Level 2
This is the option that was the default method in EnRoute 4. Some users may continue to find this to be the preferable rendering method for their computer configuration.
OpenGL Level 1
This option has proven to work best on computers that do not include a dedicated graphics card for rendering, instead relying on a graphics chipset on the computer motherboard.
Windows Graphics
If your computer does not have OpenGL rendering capabilities, this method of rendering will still provide good results but will not be quite as fast.
