I can get the missing menu problem to repeat quite consistently. Any time I open and OpenGL renderer in Java, the menus disappear. I then have to restart qtVlm to get them back. I'm running on Windows 10 with the jogl java libraries. Hope this helps.

PS. I have not upgraded to 5.7.0 yet.
Hi Andrew,
That is an interesting finding....
5.7.0 uses latest qt libraries so there is some hope it is fixed. Can you upgrade and report if the problem persists?
Sorry to insist but I need an answer before the next one.
Do you still have the menu problem with latest version 5.7.0?
The problem is solved om my 5.7.0
Solved on my computers too.

I have a request. I really like the feature where the loaded grib is displayed on the QtVlm window header. It's a great easy check to make sure you are routing with the correct grib.

I wonder if it is possible to also include up here the boat polar which is loaded? This would mean that is very easy to double check both current grib and polar before routing.

Perhaps though the real estate in the header is too limited if a number of gribs are loaded at once?

The reason I ask is because a number of us old-timers have been known to route with the wrong polar if we are sailing a couple of races at the same time. ;)

I understand your need :) but as you say there is no much place here (some people are using qtVlm on very small screens).
And normally in real mode one does not change polar so often. Sailonline usage is the exception for that.
Cheers, understood! :)
the boat polars are visible in the main board.

Hi Team
I have qtVlm setup, the NMEA proxy running but I can't get the NMEA settings right in qtVlm. I have attached/uploaded the relevant screen shots. Please can you offer some advice. Cheers Dave

Iceland TIMED Race 2023
Welcome to Iceland, where the weather is chilly but there are plenty of volcanoes and beaches to admire along Iceland's beautiful south coast. In fact, our first TIMED race of this year will take us on a 150nm eastbound trip in quick Orange Cats from the Vestmannaeyjaber archipalego to the Stokksnes peninsula. Just mind to enjoy the view from a distance and avoid the temptation to BBQ on the pristine beaches!

Sinbad Surveys Arabia 2023
Sinbad Al-SOL’er invites you to race him on seven epic voyages (5 to count), not entirely in line with those of his illustrious ancestor Al-Sail’or described in the 1001 Nights, and totally out of line with those voiced over by Brad Pitt in Sinbad - The Seven Seas, commencing with a survey of Arabia, from the island kingdom of Bahrain all the way to Aqaba, there where, in 1917, after a desperate forced march, TE Lawrence, Sherif Nasir and Auda abu Tayi routed the Ottomans. Instead of camels through the sand, though, we’ll voyage the c 3000nm across the sea on IMOCA 60’s.
