Ok, it is a mac issue. I fixed it but I am waiting for someone to tell me if the patched windows version still has the problems reported by JB

Viva Philippe, Huib and all.

Good morning.

I've just installed the qtvlm_setup_5.4.2-patch.

The issue with the “exit crash” is solved.
The other issue, the GPS status blank windows remains - pls see attached pic.

Thank you Philippe.
Sail Fair.

I tested with a SOL boat connected to brainaid nmea interface. No problem to see satellites status here, so it's either filtered somehow for you or this race does not have this information, I don' know.

I tested on race 992.

I will post the other platforms now. That includes the fix for the date column display problem on macos.

I’ve just tried the OpenTopoMaps and my first impression … I like it, in spite of:

1 - Some delay on the GPS activation once you choose this map offline option;
2 - Some GRIB ”washing” - pls see attached pic.
Sail Fair.
Philippe, same race here for the test: 992 and using the:

1 - SOL boat;
2 - "autoGribLoader 2 5 0.jar", namely, for connections.

Let me have a test with the brainaid NMEA connection.
Sail Fair.
Not much I can do about it, I cannot make the sea transparent in opentopomap (too many colors used). So I can only display the grib on to of it with some transparency (that you can tune yourself).

Some people also do not draw any colored background for the grib in that case and keep only winds arrows.

A matter of taste...
Nope Phillipe, it dosen't depend on the connection (brainaid or autoGribLoader).

The GPS status remains....dead blank, something that in previous qT versions didn't happened as soon as you establish that connection.
Sail Fair.

I've managed to turn good the GPS status window.

Problema solved.

Now I've to find out what was happening here.

Thank you for your feed.

P.S.: The "maps" is really a matter of taste.
Sail Fair.
FYI: I got an Segmentation fault when I changed from 5.4.1 to 5.4.2 on my linux system.

Deleting the .qtVlm directory in my homefolder solved the problem.
Yes I know the case (I think). I am waiting a bit to push patch1 on linux due to anotherlinux-specific small issue I am trying to fix as well.

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.
