The closest POI can be "behind", no? Or maybe you have made a U-Turn and finally the closest one is in front of you but it is a past one...

I can think of let's say an "autopilot" where you configure at which time you want qtVlm to go toward which POI (like in VLM mode but locally to the machine). That way we know that POIs belonging to the route and between the boat and the target POI can be safely removed. That autopilot could eventually be filled automatically by the route, like in VLM mode.

This needs a bit mode thoughts, so it won't be in the 5.4.0 (due to be delivered today, btw).

Viva Philippe and Huib.

99,9 % of my SOL routings are made on “transit”, i.e., with the boat moving and the GPS connected.
In those conditions and with a fast moving boat it’s almost certain for a long routing that you will get “past” calculated waypoints.

Time and patience lost in cleaning those useless waypoints and, normally prone to give bad results.
Hence my suggestion for you, Philippe.

Thank you.
Sail Fair.
Last I used QtVLM, there was an option for your boat to be "detached" from the route when you convert a routing to a route. This way the route stays the same, exactly as intended when you did the routing, no matter where you move next. That might solve your problem, João.
Viva Huib,

Thank you.

Ummm, let me have a look on that option.

Viva all.

Just got working the new qT version, the 5.4.2.

Two observations:

1 - The GPS status doesn’t work or, if it is working doesn’t show - pls. see attached “GPS Status, blank.jpg” file;

2 - If you have the GPS “on” and exit qT, it crashes if you don’t disconnect it previously - pls. see attached “qT Crash Stop.jpg” file.

I cannot reproduce these problems.

The gps status is working here

I don't have a crash if I exit with gps on, can you explain exactly what sequence you follow?

Still I found another issue, so I will post a patched version.
Viva Philippe.

Thank you for your reply.

In fact when I look to the GPS status it only shows an empty window.
In previous versions we had a graphic with green vertical bars. Now, I don’t have it.

In relation to the “exit crash” is simple.
I make a route with the GPS “on”.
I finalize it and, if I shut down first the GPS and exit qT after, qT doesn’t crash.
If I have the GPS still connected, qT crashes on exit, giving the message I’ve posted before.

A Big Hug.
Sail Fair.
Concerning gps status, are you sure the server is still sending these NMEA sentences?
I have committed a patched version, for windows only so far.
Can you tell me if you still have the problem?
Should this not been fixed yet: apparently there's a display error on mac. See the first post here for details and a screenshot.

Susac X2
Welcome to the beautiful calm waters of the Adriatic Sea for the virtual running of the Susac X2 race which is a real-life race organized by the JK Mornar Sailing Club based in Split, Croatia. Although we, unfortunately, aren’t running this magnificent race with the real fleet this year, we hope to make this possible in the coming editions. This amazing race is a total of 91 nautical miles which consists of rounding the beautiful island of Sušac. Our SOLers will be racing around these amazing waters in none other than our great Seascape 18s. Be sure to bring your binoculars for this one as with such beautiful surroundings you will definitely need them!

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
