  • brainaid NMEA proxy on different ports
    Board » General Discussion
    Hi ya all,
    I’d like to have two NMEA connections (over TCP/IP) for two races, but brainaids nice toolbox delivers always the same port 5020 for different races. Changing the port manually (e.g. 5022) doesn’t work. Is there a trick or workaraound?
    I’m sailing on a mac mini, macos 10.15, btw.

    DANG! That works! The "trick" with different ports in the NMEA Proxy was the thing I needed. THX a lot!
  • Re: qtVlm thread

    For the NMEA feed, change the port number in each of you brainaid instances. I use 5011 for qt1, 5012, for qt2 and so on.



    @Kipper: This seems to be THE hint. Will try that soon – thanks a lot!
    And fair winds for all time!
  • Routing two races simultaneously?
    Board » Technical Support
    Hello all,
    this may be a bit special: I'm actually participating the race to Rio, using qtvlm as routing software, with brainaids fine nmea-tool (on a mac mini, with catalina running). So far so good. What if I want to attend next the next race (Dondra to Sanya) with the race to Rio still running? May I use a second installation of qtvlm (simple copy)? An what about nmea? There seems no way to assign an different IP…

  • Re: qtVLM v5.4 Logbook Display
    Board » Technical Discussion
    Got it working now. Depends on what columns you have on (or off). For me it works with Icon(sail/engine), TWD, TWA, STW, CTW, SOG, AWS, AWA CS, CD columns on, rest off.

    Board » Technical Discussion
    One advantage I take of your very informative explanation is: Don’t tack (gybe) too short for rounding a waypoint/buoy. To set a tack command in advance may have the effect to round too early. Seems to be better to wait for the visible pass by of the waypoint – then tack or gybe or set new course.
    (Apologies for bad english).

    Yup. Here they are.

    Hello,

    qtVlm's Route logbook doesn’t show the complete "date and time" (left column)– at least on a mac – , which is annoying when you try to put some DC into brainaids dc toolbox or the SOL DC setter. >screenshot

    Also kroppyers qtVlm DC Converter doesn't seem to work properly: He gives me constantly a date/tim line like this: 1970/01/01 01:00:00

    Does anybody has some helping advice!

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.
