Re: Free Routing Software

At the begining you have to select real boat for real navigation.

Re: Free Routing Software

Last version is now 3.2.7 (windows, mac or linux), and contains some new features in routing (inversed isochrons, possibility to set-up barriers, etc). A 64bits version for windows is also available, much faster.

Re: Free Routing Software

A new version (3.2.8) has been released.

It contains various improvements and fixes, plus the possibility to tune the polar efficiency. You can also calculate routings and routes using a mixed of engine and sails.

Re: Free Routing Software

You need to login/register only if you choose to use qtVLM in virtual navigation mode (connected to VLM servers, in which case you must have a VLM account).

If you choose real-boat as a profile type then there is no need to register or whatever.

Re: Free Routing Software

I have re-installed your prog 3 times but I donīt get past the first entry point with the password request. I have made the selection of boat as you suggested but nothing happens when I press OK.

The green loading line stops at 92% and never finishes.

I am on Win7

Re: Free Routing Software

Probably you need to have a polar for your boat. I have added some samples in the distribution, so you can redownload and reapply patch1 to get them all. Or for instance you can use this one (pogo 8.50) http://www.virtual-winds.com/maitai/boat_Pogo850JL.csv. To be put in the polar directory of qtVLM.

Re: Free Routing Software

You need to define a name for your boat (whatever you want, but cannot be empty), then to select a polar for it. Since you don't have one I have added some samples in the distribution so you can just redownload and reapply "patch1" to get them.

Re: Free Routing Software

maitai..

But I donīt even get that far to select a boat name etc. I donīt get past the first menu although I have selected īVrai bateauī ??
I have installed the polar for Pogo850JL.csv in the polar directory.

Re: Free Routing Software

In the field "identifiant", which stands for "name of the boat" type something. It cannot be empty.

I'll fix that one in the next release, and also the fact that it starts in french by default.

Re: Free Routing Software

maitai..

OK,I see... my French is very rusty, I thought the two fields were username and password. I will try again... I have a good size database of polars I will copy over.

Thanks
