Board » General Discussion » New QtVlm version.

Viva all SOLers.

There's a new qTVlm version (routing software).
A small bug in my qT: after the routing process is finished when you export it to a CSV format file it doesn’t’ generate the “TWS” column - see also included “CSV” file.

Meanwhile I’ve noticed that qTVlm went to the Android App gallery.
Downloaded and installed it. The only issue is now to find out a NMEA working program to connect a SOL boat with the qTVlm app.
Any ideas?

See Huib / kroppyer's solution elsewhere in forum at http://sailonline.org/board/thread/12829/converting-a-qtvlm-route-to-brainaid-dcs/?page=1#post-13441
It works for me but I will need to get used to qtVlm v5 first!

Viva Go4.

The solution for this issue is not in the conversion to the brainaid DC's format.
The problem here is the CSV file that is generated and exported from qTVlm: it is incomplete.
In my case doesn't give the “TWS” column values.
It’s a qTVlm program bug.

Anyhow thank you for the info.
Sail Fair.
Viva Huib,

Thank you for your intervention.

A Big Hug!
Sail Fair.
If you update qtVlm to 5.0 -15 please note that the kroppyer conversion for SOL DCs reverts to the original version, i.e. http://sol.kroppyer.nl/qtvlm2dc/ , because the csv export file format has been corrected to 'as it was before'.
New program .... bugs.
When you edit a calculated route, select to show it and also the "Display data from roadbook at grib date" the program crashes invariably.

In some of the menus, the French language is mixed with the English when the chosen option for the language is "English".

New update for qTVlm (v. 5.0-17).
The former issue with the "Display data from roadbook at grib date" crash is solved as also the language one (French vs. English in the menus).

AWKR 2024

The Australian Women's Keelboat Regatta celebrates and promotes women's sailing in Australia. Comprising a week of intense racing on Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay, the event has grown to become Australia’s premier women’s regatta and one of the largest in the southern hemisphere, and over the past several years, Sailonline has been delighted to have been invited to offer all-comers (women and men) a virtual opportunity to race the Bay during AWKR week. This year, it’s an imaginary 80-miler in Sun Fast 3300s, which should prove a proper online challenge.

Nuuk RTI Sprint 2024

Welcome to Nuuk, capital of Greenland. It holds the title of warmest city in Greenland and is located at the end of the Nuup Kangerlua fjord on the east shore of the Labrador Sea. The fjord is clear of ice, daylight plentiful, perhaps a tiny chill in air. This is the final sprint of Q2 and we have a new course for you. It is time to race in Greenland.
