Not sure if this is any real problem, but the qtVlm map for the 'Return from Lindisfarne' race is only showing Finish A and Finish B and not showing Göteborg! The SOL race map is showing Göteborg!
The easy solution is to insert a new mark called Göteborg in the desired location which I have done in my qtVlm. But why was it not there to start with is my question.
Probably NMEA does not like "ö" and similar strange characters
Probably NMEA does not like "ö" and similar strange characters
Correct. NMEA standard only allows the standard ASCII set. The extended character set is not supported. This has been raised before with the SOL race constructors not to use the extended character set in waypoint names, as they are not supported.
Sorry for possibly stuoid question

How do I get a Brainaid DC eatable format out of QTVLM Rout Export ? Tried several times....


TKS 2 ALL
I've released a new version of AGL (3.2.1) that remaps the extended ASCII set to the standard ASCII set. This version will fix the problem permanently.
find kroppyer sailonline tools.

On the left side you find
QtVLM route converter
Click on it and see what you can do with that.

Alternatively find a good text-editor into which you load your .csv file.

Delete all the columns you do not need.
first column will be date (dd/mm/yyyy or mm/dd/yyyy format). The values here you have to change to brainaids format (yyyy/mm/dd)
Some pasting together date and course is the next step

If in the editor you can make a little program/macro, that would be quit helpfull to accomplish this whole transformation.

And to be precise:
In QTVLM you go to
Routes>Edit route->
choose routing# you want to edit.
click on <Route logbook> and wait till the "Route logbook" is on screen.
Now click on <Eport (CSV format)>

Hi there. Trying to do the whole routing thing only on an ipad. I'm almost there but it's so long since I've done this I've forgotten one thing. Can someone fill me in please...is Andrew's (kipper's) programme the only place to source the race marks file (gpx file)? Thanks.
I have an enhancement request. Can we please add current time to the current position (through the Position tab on the boat information). I using qt for an IRL ocean race on the weekend and we had to report time and position several times during the race, and also record out finish time. It would be great to have this all in the same place. Thanks in advance.
Hello all,
this may be a bit special: I'm actually participating the race to Rio, using qtvlm as routing software, with brainaids fine nmea-tool (on a mac mini, with catalina running). So far so good. What if I want to attend next the next race (Dondra to Sanya) with the race to Rio still running? May I use a second installation of qtvlm (simple copy)? An what about nmea? There seems no way to assign an different IP…

The Odyssey 2020 - Leg 3
Leaving a blinded cyclops behind, Odysseus is immediately blown off course again, now to Pantelleria where Aeolus gifts him a bag of wind for later. Sailing on, he next reaches Telepylos, which could be back on the African coast or present-day Favignana off north west Sicily. Our Leg 3 opts for Favignana, which turns out to be inhabited by Laestryonians who start to eat the crew. To get away, the wind bag is opened too soon and they carene on north to the land of the sorceress Circe, who turns the remaining crew into pigs for a year. But once more they get away, finally in the right direction, passing the Sirens on the coast of present-day Amalfi, to end up in The Underworld, the island Vulcano. 550 exhausting miles of mayhem!
