Thanks for reporting, it's fixed and will be in next release
I've just notice a new issue in where the $GPWPL sentences, if they are the first sentences, are ignored and not longer printed in the Raw NMEA window. I decided to send them through multiple (4) times to make sure it is not a timing issue, and whilst they make the Raw NMEA window, the waypoints are not loaded or stored. Attached is a copy from the Raw NMEA window where the sentences have arrived but none of the waypoints have been loaded. Has just started in 5.4-9. The same waypoints are in the gpx file which loads fine (my workaround for now).

Cheers

5.4 - 9 needs you to tick a box. "qtVlm/configuration/NMEA connections/ at bottom of that page tick the box 'Treat RMB messages (WP)' " and then your waypoints & finish line appear. Solution from Bimmer!
The introduction of pathways is great. In 5.4-8, you could convert a Route into a Pathway and visa versa. Seems to have been disabled in this version which makes constructing pathways a fair bit of work. Could you consider adding the import function to Pathways as well, using the same gpx format route file. Sample file attached.

I run multiple qtVlm installs ( up to four at any one time), each with a different boat polar. The ability to store all boat polars in one location where each instance of qt can read the polar information, rather than storing all the polars in each qt install would be useful. Providing a polar library location under Configurations would work.

Thanks
I believe Windows supports something similar to symlinks now. You should be able to replace all but the original folder of polars by a symlink to the original folder of polars. At least that's how I've done it on linux for years.

Maybe this will get you started.
I ran a routing which ran out of grib. In converting to a route, the last waypoint created waqs reported as could not be reached, and as a consequence, Simplification would not work - error reported that route was frozen. Deleting the last waypoint (which then showed an end time) allowed simplification to work. Probably an issue in that the last waypoint should not have been created.

Cheers
Maybe this will get you started.

Thanks Kroppyer, worked perfectly. Used this.

Maitai Hello, thanks for qtvlm, is wonderful.
I've to ask a question: can you explain the difference between "best performance" and "best accutacy"?
"Best performance" setting is "best speed"?
Thank you
Carlo Alberto.
I have a another enhancement request. The ability to tag waypoints as "leave to port" or "leave to starboard" that when encountered in creating a routing from the Pathway, the routing only pass through that waypoint if the waypoint will end up on the wrong side of the route as specified by the waypoint type. This means that the waypoint is effectively ignored and only comes into play if a routing ends up on the wrong side of the waypoint. For example, if the routing passes the port side of a "leave to starboard", the routing is dragged back to pass to starboard of the point. If the routing passes any distance to starboard, no adjustment is made.

Thanks

Abel T Appreciation 2020
In December 1642 after a particularly difficult and rough voyage, the Dutch seafarer and explorer, Abel Tasman, made landfall at a spot he named Staten Landt, believing he had arrived on the coast of Argentina. In fact, he had arrived in modern-day New Zealand. Once again out of love and respect for this brilliant seaman, Sailonline is retracing his route from Tasmania to New Zealand.

The Odyssey 2020 - Leg 1
According to Homer, after the Greeks sacked Troy, one of their heroes, Odysseus, had a particularly fateful journey home. Sailonline now invites you to relive his epic tale, journeying in a virtual ancient trireme, modelled on the Hellenic Navy's real live replica Olympia. The legend tells Odysseus was immediately blown off course, north to the land of the Cicones, perhaps making landfall near Cape Maroneais. When the winds abated and after pillaging the people, he made good progress south, undoubtedly rowing some of the way, to exit the Aegean at Cape Maleas, where this virtual first leg ends. Take your seats for 360nm of tragedy!

San Francisco Bay 2020
Many a Sailonline race has started or finished at San Francisco's Golden Gate, but never have we raced inside The Bridge on The Bay. This 27nm sprint corrects that oversight with a fine sight-seeing tour past Alcatraz, Yerba Buena, Brooks and East Marin Island. Our rarely raced Fox 9.50 is your boat of choice. She's a nippy little thing. Enjoy!

A3 2020 Leg 8 - Darwin to Perth
In 2012 Sailonline lost one of its more remarkable racers, Aaron Gage, the creator of the Flash client and all-round awesome human being.

This race is Leg 8 of the series - a race of 1860nm in Orange 125ft Catamarans from the laid back north to the booming mining capital and yachting centre of Perth in the south of the state of Western Australia.
