This thread will be the main thread for the post concerning qtVlm.

Please post here any topic and we will push here also any new release or other info about qtVlm

MapQuest has changed yesterday its policy for tile/map diffusion.

As a consequence qtVlm can't access anymore to their map atm. We are working on a solution.

In order to have a map displayed if you used to have mapQuest:
- go to qtVlm / Configuration / Map
- select either:
* offline maps (VLM) = gshhs
* online VLM maps (gshhs + elevation) to which you can add openSeaMap info

This has no impact on mbTiles or kap config
Christophe - Can you give an ETA for the next update?
Hello,

As maitai will be back from vacations I guess that we will provide a new release next week
Good morning all.

The new qT version displays the boat Polar wrongly.
Please compare the two images got from the SOL client and from qT (with the GPS connected).
Sail Fair.

Yep JB The QT speed polar is 90 degress off.
I've posted this in QT-forum. So let's see what they read first :-)

There was a typo in this function and as a result qtVlm is using twa instead of twd to rotate the polar (only when receiving it through nmea data).

This is fixed and will be in the next release.
I want to be able to run 2 (or more) QtVlm's on the same computer, simultaneously. Anyone knows how to? Maybe a small setup tutorial!

Viva Finn.

Good morning.

Install the second qT in a different directory, ex.:"c:/Program Files/qTVlm2".
Sail Fair.
I did install qtvlm in d:\qt\. works nice.
So you could install in \race1
\race2
\race3 etc.
If you are short in drive/disk space maybe this is not a good option. About 500 MB needed for every installation.

If you want to route more races at the same time then you have to consider how much your cpu/processor can take. If your computer gets terribly slow or qtvlm crashes then you know you excecuted one task too much...
alternatives?:
- In the same instance of qtvlm you could change the polar of your boat if you would start routing for a new race.... then stop the nmea-proxy for the old race and start the new one.. deleting "old" routes help to avoid confusion around which route is going to where.

- In the qtvlm folder are only 4 files that change with every routing.
You could try to put these files in a race1 folder/map.
You should make a map for every race you want to route.

If after six hours you return to race1 just copy the files from race1 to their original places and you should be ready to go.
files to copy
boatAccReal.dat
poiReal.dat
qtVlm.ini
traceSave.comp

I did not try this alternative till now.
But will give it a go when/if I do more races at th same time.

hmm's Delivery 2019
When, back in 2014, SOLer hmm went to Kiel in Germany and bought himself a very fine First 36.7, it came complete with the challenge of how to get her home to Helsinki, Finland. With summer fast approaching and press-ganging progressing slowly, SOL decided to help out with moral support and in the end nearly 200 SOLers accompanied him and his crew on the 588nm trip. A big success! Today hmm still sails his yacht all summer long on his home waters of the Gulf of Finland. So, five years on, let's re-enact his passage and get over there to join him as fast as we can, in our very quick Ker 40s on this occasion.

Aden to Goa 2019
Europeans are mainly familiar with the history of how spices arrived in that continent from far away places, but the trade in spices from Goa to Aden predates the modern era as is detailed here. Sailonline is reversing this route and making it an eastbound yacht race of about 1700nm across the Arabian Sea for our 21st century Sunfast yachts! Fair winds and may the aroma of spices bring you safely to your destination!
