    You can just omit the timestamp parameter from the get command to receive the boat info only.

    I suppose it could be done. Excel 2013 has two new functions called webservice and filterxml which you could probably use to pull boat.xml into Excel and display what you want.

    So, that's what they were doing.
    Who knew.

    What you see as the AIS function of the NMEA proxy is really nothing more than one more way of receiving some of the very same information that the server sends to the race client over an unencrypted TCP connection. The NMEA proxy just delivers that information in a different format, namely in NMEA sentences.

    Not everybody has to rely on the proxy to get to that data. So, as was intended, the NMEA proxy levels the playing field, more than anything, because now that information is available to all, and not just to those who know where to look.

    You misunderstand the option in the NMEA proxy; it is not intended to cutoff your boat to the outside world, but rather to control how much information the proxy receives. You have to realize that the NMEA proxy is only a nice wrapper around data that is available to anyone with basic TCP networking knowledge.

    Can't comment on the fonts issue as I am not using Chrome. As for the circles, they only appear if you have wind barbs selected in the Options.

    <del>One more thing I just remembered: in QtVlm, under File -> Configuration, there's a GPS tab. On it is a COM port entry field and an 'Activate' checkbox. This tab is intended for output of GPS data, not for receiving GPS data. Not sure if it makes any difference, but just make sure the Activate checkbox is unchecked. Just might be creating a feedback loop.</del>

    Never mind, doesn't seem to be doing anything.

    Not sure what you mean with 'quircer'? Does that mean BWR is working? If it is, you have to use a different COM port for QtVlm. Both can't be using the same COM port.
  • Re: Converting a QtVLM route to brainaid DCs

    In NavMonPc, on the "Virtual Ports A,B,C" tab, for each port there's a Monitor button just below the Connect/Disconnect buttons. Click on the Monitor button of your COM port to check and see if thge NMEA data is being output.

    Also, as I recall, NavMonPc's AIS proximity alert tends to wreck havoc on QtVlm. The alert usually gets activated just after start up. Click on AIS in the menubar and if there's an alert active, there'll will be a bunch of yellow boxes near the page bottom. Click on Ignore Target to cancel the alarm.

    Not much else I can think of, I'm afraid.

    Good luck,
    Philip

    Hi Bimmer,
    could you possibly document the procedure for establishing contact between qtvlm and SOL via Brainaid (or with BWR), if that's the way to describe the issue:-)

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. In his memory, Tyger created a superb series of races around the island of Australia - the A3 (Agage's Around Australia) Series. 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.

Silverrudder 2020
Sailonline welcomes you to the fifth "buddy-up" with "Silverrudder - Challenge of the Sea" in the 2020 edition race around the Danish Island of Funen.
With shallow waters and a strong current this close inshore race is truly a challenge. One of three regattas around Funen each year, this race is the only one (and the biggest worldwide) for single handed racing. Will our Seascape (First) 27 be a match for the real fleet's 17 Seascape 27?
Time will tell!

It is imperative that you read AND understand these special Starting Conditions for Silverrudder 2020

Foveaux Strait TIMED Race 2020
Welcome to southern New Zealand, and welcome to this TIMED race through the South Island’s Foveaux Strait. According to a Maori legend, the strait was created by Kewa the obedient whale when traditional Maori ancestor Kiwa summoned the whale to create a waterway. It is a rough and often treacherous stretch of water. Our 98nm quadrangular course goes around some small islands in the strait. To zoom around these islands in style, we will pull our Seacart 30s out of the shed and let them fly. Enjoy!
