I finally understand: "best performance" and "best accuracy" refer to calculation accuracy of the route, not to speed performance of the boat ...
Carlo Alberto
Sorry, I still don't understand the difference between "performance" and "accuracy".
Thanks for any assistance.
Hi Zoe,
I realized that with "best performance" the software calculates the route in a faster way, but less precise, with "best accuracy" calculates your route more slowly but the result is more accurate.

Hi Scarabocchio,

Yes, I get that, but the difference in calculation time between the two is measured in seconds!. In my computer, using "Best accuracy" usually means extra seconds, (less than 1 minute), or so of "waiting", even on long legs routings.

To me, I don't see the reason in using "Best performance" ever.

on my Mac, best performance calculated in seconds and optimizes in a minute, calculates best accuracy in a few minutes and optimizes it for a long time (depends on how many hours do you calculate the forecast).
(I use "best accuracy" only when I want to sleep well ...)

I must have a fast computer them. I haven't seen any (routing) calculation that takes more than a minute.
I am running on a Dell Inspiron Laptop with Intel i7 at 2.30GHz and 16 GB of RAM. Windows 10. (One year old.)

Yes, sleep at night is important.
To me that is the appeal of using Qt, so I can sleep 8 hours at night. I always skip one weather update, usually the one at 2 AM, and that is fine with me. :)

Mine is a MacBookPro Retina 15" - 2,2 GHz Intel Core i7 - 16 GB RAM.
The computation time I said is related to the "automatic settings", if you change parameters the time is greatly reduced.
Best Accuracy uses more resources (memory and CPU) and takes more time. On a decent PC that should not be a problem and that should be your preferred setting.
But remember that qtVlm also runs on Android and iOS, so when running on a small phone it might be needed to reduce accuracy in order to save time (and battery). Some trials are needed in order to find the correct setting depending on your device and needs.

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.

Prepare yourselves for an epic 30-day journey, navigating through the unpredictable waters of the South Seas.
