    I presume you are on windows 10. More applications or sub-processes of applications show this crash if you start a second instance before the first has finished.

    Only thing I can find on the web is "esent esediskflushconsistency" Only discussions; no remedy.

    So a little bit of patience before you click again on <Start NMEA> seems the sensible thing to do.

    If you cross the 180 from west to east and you are using autogribloader as source then the gps-position will be on the right side of the chart. And there you can not use it for routing purposes.

    If you use brainaids NMEA proxy as source then the GPS-position will be put on the left side of the chart where it can be used for routing.

    The grib delivered by AutoGribLoader neither works in BWR.
    Here I use the grib delivered by Brainaids Toolbox too.

    I do not know what you already have tried to clean that screen.
    Deleting all of qtvlm and do a clean install would surely give you that clean screen.
    Would help if you write down beforehand the configuration adaptations you made made different from the default in <QtVlm><Configuration>. Saves a lot of reinventing all the config-wheels later on.

    And you could try beforehand in
    <QtVlm><Export qtVlm data> to export whatever you chose there to Export (to qtVlmExport.zip) the data you want back when you have done a clean install.
    Do not forget to put first qtVlmExport.zip on/in a different place then the QtVlm folder you are going to delete.

    In the newly installed QtVlm you choose <QtVlm>< Import qtVlm Data> and find you exported data. And maybe the random dots are gone now.

    That's all I can think of.
    Good luck

    I do not have expedition.
    But maybe this works?
    In Expedition use the settings menu to select Instruments->Number of network connections. Then add a connection. Now in the Instruments->Serial and Network Ports you can choose TCP client and configure for ip-fill in address shown in brainaids nmea proxy port 5010

    found in http://expedition.boardhost.com/viewtopic.php?id=228

    (I tried it in unlicenced expedition version but got message that could not be done in unlicensed etc.)

    That article was written by <schakel>. At the time of writing QtVLM and BWR both used a com: port to read NMEA data.

    NavMon was used to create a virtual com port that you could connect to in BWR and QtVLM.

    Since then QtVLM has included it's own tcp/ip NMEA connection.

    Only for BWR you still need to create a virtual com port.

    In the NavMon screen I see at the left Virtual Ports A,B,C.

    C is closed. com1: and com2: are connected but show [no data]. I think the results on the dials on the right are coming from another source. Seen your QtVlm screen I think they come in NavMon over your local internet ip: port 5010 too.

    If you are using brainaids NMEA proxy you should use com3: port:5010

    In your QtVlm settings you should try to uncheck the udp: port 1 and port 2 and in TCP: check server 1;and for ip-address use what you now have in udp: port 2

    if you use autoGribLoader and have left everything unchanged use the same as above.

    Should work!

    Maybe if you want to use UDP you have to find a way in NavMon to send the nmea data to UDP port2.
    I do not know how to do that.

    would it be possible for the time being to replace the INFO link with
    with the advice to search for a part of the name of race you would like the chart.

    For example if you search for Tauranga
    you will find the link

    Even better put the this link as race info with the warning
    "Sometimes races do change their courses so be careful about relying too heavily on old information."
    you gave in the previous posting.

Aegean Rally 2018
"The International Aegean Sailing Rally is a regatta with a long history, organized every year by the HORC (Hellenic Offshore Racing Club). It is the oldest and most splendid sailing event in Greece and is characterized as a marine Marathon", thus write its organisers, The Hellenic Offshore Racing Club, and in 2015 SOL followed the IRL yachts round for all four legs. Marathon, however, lies too far off the beaten track, so, we, at SOL, much encouraged by the great success of our ouzo-fuelled sprint of January this year, have decided to use another of the 2015 legs for sprinting. This one starts in Athens, then rounds Agios Dimitrios Kythnos for Piperi, to finish at the Temple of Poseidon on the tip of the Attica peninsula.

SWR 17/18 Leg 9 - Newport to Cardiff
We are back in the northern hemisphere!
After a good rest in Newport it's time to head for Europe, more specifically Cardiff in Wales
"A smooth trip" you might think, but The Atlantic Ocean can offer many surprises. One of them could be The Azores High, which in the late spring can drift north and block your route to Cardiff.
Consider yourself warned.
