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.

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.

Current Races:

Round Britain and Ireland 2022
We invite you to participate in the 1780 nm race according to the clockwise movement around Ireland, Scotland, Shetland Islands and England. We will have four waters: the North Atlantic Ocean, the Celtic Sea, the North Sea, La Manche Channel. Each of them has its own specific navigation conditions but we will not exchange them here. Watch out for cyclones forming in the vicinity of Iceland and wandering in the south - east. The wind speed at this time of year can reach up to 40 kts and even more. Let's hope that sailing experience and our Sunfast3600 will safely lead us to the finish line.

Tour Down Under 2022
It will be 694nm of killing racing on an amazing route created by SOL'er AGage. In the chat of the first edition of this race, Tyger wrote "Only an Aussie (and a crazy one) with intimate knowledge of these waters could have come up with such a racecourse". Well maybe AGage was a bit crazy, but he was also a genius when he made it, inspired by the great cycling race "Tour Down Under". Instead of bikes we will use fast 60ft Trimarans. So rest well and prepare large amounts of coffee. You will have at least two days without sleep. 😊
