These waypoints are not displayed in qtVlm when these NMEA sentences are sent through.

$GPWPL,5950.057,N,01909.176,E,Villösan*F4
$GPWPL,6011.224,N,01926.018,E,Töllingarna*92
$GPWPL,5948.833,N,01947.200,E,Flötjan*87
$GPWPL,5952.224,N,01905.144,E,Simpnäs Pir*FD

It appears to be related to the extended character set being used. Remove the ö from the name and it works fine.
Good point Kipper,
In the Nordic we use 3 caracters not found international, and we translate them as follows:

æ/ä = ae
ø/ö = oe
å/å = aa

Would be fine if SRC avoid theese caracters in the future.

To reproduce, do the following.
1. Set grib time to now.
2. Edit route and check route logbook. AWA and AWS are fine. Close editor.
3. Select a route waypoint and set grib date, or step forward (I was using 5 min increments)
3. Edit the route and check route logbook. All AWA's and AWS's are zero

See screenshots below.

The zero's then flow into the export.

Hi Andrew, unless I'm not following your instructions correctly, that doesn't seem to happen to me.
Hi all.

Andrew, if memory doesn't fail, the related problem came on the qT 5.8.2 version, hence the main reason for stop upgrading qT since 5.8.1 (there are other reasons).

No such problem here, what version are you using on which platform?

@João/psail what other problems ?

Qt Version 5.8-4
Windows 10

It is transient and I think it is related to an NMEA update which appears to fix the logbook. I think it also needs more than one route to reproduce. It will reproduce though by repeating the steps
1. Set grib date
2. View route logbook.

I can get it to reproduce about 50% of the time if NMEA is turned on. It does not reproduce if NMEA is turned off.

Hope this helps.

It's really weird. The instance I'm using has two routes in it. I set a grib date based on a route waypoint. The first route was fine, and the other wasn't, then they switched (did not change the date). Then they both fine, now switched back again (after about 2 minutes) and then switches again.
Hi,
Thanks for the detailed information. I was able to reproduce that and it's a race condition that can occur randomly if NMEA is on. I fixed that and it's in beta4: https://www.virtual-winds.org/maitai/qtvlm_setup_5.8.6-beta4

Please test this and tell us if it's OK now. If you or someone else needs this beta for another platform than Windows just tell me.

Philippe.

It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
