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).

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.

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.

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.

Melbourne to Osaka Prelude 2024

Welcome once again to what these days is Sailonline’s almost annual virtual Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race. In real life, this double-handed 5500 nm race between these two sister cities, one deep in the southern hemisphere, the other high in the northern hemisphere, is run every four to five years, and is planned to be held again in 2025, so this race is a Prelude in partnership with the Melbourne Osaka Cup 2025 organising committee collaborating with the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), and the Sandringham (SYC) and Osaka Hokko (OHYC) yacht clubs. On this occasion, we’ll be racing the well-known First 40, a popular size of boat for a long-distance double-handed race. With the doldrums unavoidably lying across the track, you can expect to be at virtual sea for at least a month!

St Nazaire Chasse TIMED Race 2024

Welcome to a "chasse" (hunt) from St. Nazaire to La Baule on the west coast of France! This race was designed by SOLer FR_flouflou in 2010. The KER 40 was introduced to SOL in 2016 by SOLer psail, and the Sol-KER was a welcome addition to SOL’s fleet of 40- footers, as it was to the IRL Ker fleet of eponymous - like KERonimo, KukuKERchu and Ice BreaKER. This is a TIMEDrace, so you may RE-REGISTER HERE to try again, after finishing a run. You will have 13 days and 11 hours to show your skill and decision making after the race opens.

The Beagle in the Straits of Magellan 2024

Both before and after visiting the Falkland Islands, the Beagle extensively explored the south eastern coast of South America, hither and thither, from north of the Rio Plate to the tip of Tierra del Fuego, but it was not till the end of June 1834 that the ship made it into the Pacific Ocean, transiting via the Straits of Magellan. Online in 2024, the choice is yours - passage the strait or round the cape; 400nm or more in your Class B Tall Ship.

Welcome to the second leg of this Round The World series 2024. It's also the April edition of this year's ocean race championship. The course is the same as the one sailed in 2023, but this year we sail the iconic Swan 65, as suggested in the concluding RTW race last year.
Prepare yourselves for an epic 30-day journey, navigating through the unpredictable waters of the South Seas. It's essential to take care of provisioning to ensure a smooth and enjoyable race experience. With the longer duration, we anticipate plenty of opportunities for camaraderie, competition, and unforgettable memories.
