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.

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2022

Point Yacht Club welcomes Sailonline to the 2022 running of the classic Vasco da Gama Ocean Race. This race is the oldest established international sailing event in South Africa and traditionally starts in the bay of Maputo, the old Portuguese colonial capital of Mozambique and finishes in Durban. Last year, and now again this year, the race was/will be from Durban to East London - circa 250nm in native Cape 31 speed machines.

Seoul to Seoul TIMED 2022
In this TIMED race designed by NZL_Scotsman, you'll start at Incheon, sail around 34nm WNW through the Korean DMZ towards the island of Yongmae-do and leave it to port, before returning to Incheon. Luckily, there is no military presence to contend with in this SOL race, though there's still plenty of islands to watch out for and not BBQ on. And once back in Incheon, you can even RE-REGISTER HERE for another attempt. Fastest round trip wins!

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.
