    You can just omit the timestamp parameter from the get command to receive the boat info only.

    I suppose it could be done. Excel 2013 has two new functions called webservice and filterxml which you could probably use to pull boat.xml into Excel and display what you want.

    So, that's what they were doing.
    Who knew.

    What you see as the AIS function of the NMEA proxy is really nothing more than one more way of receiving some of the very same information that the server sends to the race client over an unencrypted TCP connection. The NMEA proxy just delivers that information in a different format, namely in NMEA sentences.

    Not everybody has to rely on the proxy to get to that data. So, as was intended, the NMEA proxy levels the playing field, more than anything, because now that information is available to all, and not just to those who know where to look.

    You misunderstand the option in the NMEA proxy; it is not intended to cutoff your boat to the outside world, but rather to control how much information the proxy receives. You have to realize that the NMEA proxy is only a nice wrapper around data that is available to anyone with basic TCP networking knowledge.

    Can't comment on the fonts issue as I am not using Chrome. As for the circles, they only appear if you have wind barbs selected in the Options.

    <del>One more thing I just remembered: in QtVlm, under File -> Configuration, there's a GPS tab. On it is a COM port entry field and an 'Activate' checkbox. This tab is intended for output of GPS data, not for receiving GPS data. Not sure if it makes any difference, but just make sure the Activate checkbox is unchecked. Just might be creating a feedback loop.</del>

    Never mind, doesn't seem to be doing anything.

    Not sure what you mean with 'quircer'? Does that mean BWR is working? If it is, you have to use a different COM port for QtVlm. Both can't be using the same COM port.

    In NavMonPc, on the "Virtual Ports A,B,C" tab, for each port there's a Monitor button just below the Connect/Disconnect buttons. Click on the Monitor button of your COM port to check and see if thge NMEA data is being output.

    Also, as I recall, NavMonPc's AIS proximity alert tends to wreck havoc on QtVlm. The alert usually gets activated just after start up. Click on AIS in the menubar and if there's an alert active, there'll will be a bunch of yellow boxes near the page bottom. Click on Ignore Target to cancel the alarm.

    Not much else I can think of, I'm afraid.

    Good luck,
    Philip

    Hi Bimmer,
    could you possibly document the procedure for establishing contact between qtvlm and SOL via Brainaid (or with BWR), if that's the way to describe the issue:-)

Current Races:

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.

Stockholm to St Petersburg 2022
Are you ready to race this course of about 431nm across the Baltic and into the Gulf of Finland, from one great historic city Stockholm to another St Petersburg?
The Gulf of Finland is still ice‑free, so board your J‑122s and prepare. Take care and keep a weather eye. The odd stray submarine or ice‑breaker may need to be avoided.

SOL around Vancouver Island 2022
Designed by SOLer fastpassage39, we will round Vancover Island, tackling tight channels and open water which our Dufour 40s will love. With some luck, we should be able to complete this delightful 525nm course in around a week, just in time for opening day at the nearby world-famous Whistler Blackcomb ski resort!
