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.

Fremantle to Bali 2022
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.
