Post annotated by kroppyer-admin :
This post was moved from the category Technical Discussion so the QtVLM guys have an easier job following all QtVLM related posts.
I'd thought I'd report these that I found doing some NMEA testing.
1. Closing an NMEA TCP connection server port (closing the port or shutting down the programme providing the NMEA feed) while GPS is connected, causes Qt to crash.
2.If NMEA sentence $GPWPL is received for a waypoint that already exists, that waypoint jumps to the top left corner until a screen refresh is invoced. Each time the following sentance is received, the waypoint "Cadiz Offshore" will jump to the top left of the screen from it's proper location $GPWPL,3636.000,N,00629.000,W,Cadiz Offshore*0D
3. The Display Raw NMEA Data window, when activated, will obscure some of the other popup windows, and lock up Qt completely.To reproduce do the following.
i. Enable Display Raw NMEA data and start GPS
ii. Click on boat icon to bring up Position, Speed and Heading etc
iii. Click on Position, if not already displayed.
iv. Click on ? Qt will now be locked. The is now no way to move the NMEA Raw Data window and get to the popup behind it.
Thanks for reporting. Too late for 5.3.11 but I take notes for next one
Viva all.

With the new version the previous defined barriers exist (in the "barriers" menu) but they all lost their previous association with my boat.

Also, it's not possible to create a new "barrier" and associate with any boat!?

Bug or misconfiguration?
Sail Fair.
In the new version (5.3.11) it's not possible to define the Waypoint for VMC calculations purpose.
Sail Fair.
Ok, I'll fix that too
QtVlm-user's: If you're having problems with the waypoints grouped in the top-left corner of the QtVlm map, reload the Class 40 Polar from brainaid: Class 40

There is a real bug concerning WP update through nmea that is now fixed, I dont think you can do much about it apart waiting for the next release ;)

Speaking about the next release, I have heard that some of you are using SOL coast lines instead of qtVlm coast lines in qtVlm. We are ok to implement that "officially" in qtVlm but for that we need a link to these coasts files... Can someone provide a link?

It is strange. I'm on 3.5.11 and I dont have that problem!
Our official coastlines are sent to the client in tiles (larger tiles of low resolution are used when zoomed out). If you want the official sailonline coastlines, you'll need to implement that part of the API.

But since we don't really use other maps that GSHHS these days, the best option is probably to bypass the API completely and use the GSHHS maps directly. Sol uses the "h" and "i" resolution, depending on how large the race area is.

Thanks for the link.

qtVlm can displays tiles (or mbtiles), but in that case we want to have exact coastlines as polygons, to be able to route based on it.

Uruguay to New Zealand 2022
After a 6 year hiatus, we return to race the tricky route from Punta del Este in Uruguay to Auckland, New Zealand. Our former winner "longreacher" covered this route taking 16 days 10 hours 10 minutes and 44 seconds and he used the same boat. Let's see if we can bite into his record.

South China Sea Race 2022
For our second Seven Seas of Asia race, we invite you to Taiwan, where a charter fleet of Cape31's await you for a circa 2100nm race around a triangular course through the politically and probably meteorologically-also tricky waters of the South China Sea. Beware of lurking submarines and battleships and keep clear of firing ranges!

Shetland Winter Race 2022
A-OI!!! The cry should soon be ringing out in the streets of Lerwick as the Guizer Jarl and his crew, along with the other teams in the Up Helly Aa parade complete their preparations for the biggest fire festival in Europe. While Shetland continues to manage #COVID19 well, Up Helly Aa has been cancelled but this won't stop SOLers racing their Elan 410s this 383nm course from Aberdeen to be sociable in Lerwick Harbour. SAILING NOTE: Gruney may be approached from any direction but must be passed for rounding purposes as indicated on the chart.
