I was attempting to use the fleet routing. I created a fleet by hand and gave each boat an initial position (the start mark) and polars. When I click fleet route and expedition crashes.

I get a windows error - Application has stopped.

I tried to update Expedition tonight to the new release but was stymied after the install was unhappy with the VS runtime redistribution kit installed by Visual Studio 2019 (the most recent update).

I was able to remove just the VC x86 redisitibution package and install proceeded.

You might also disable all USB power management. There are a lot of USB devices out there (and host chipsets) that don't do USB power management correctly...

Power Options -> Change Plan Settings ->Change Advanced Plan Settings -> USB Settings -> USB Selective Suspend -> disable on both battery and plugged in...

Also in Device Manager: Power Tab on the properties of the device in question: Allow this computer to turn off this device to save power to off (or unselected).

I was worried about the instruments on the boat for the Fastnet - so I decided to pick up a cheep USB GPS as backup.

I got this:
Stratux Vk-162 Remote Mount USB GPS with Extended Cable ADS-B Receiver

It has a U-Blox7 chipset.

So far I've been happy with it. I was unable to get the UBlox Windows 8/10 sensor driver to work with expedition but the legacy driver works just great.

The old Raymarine system didn't have any major issues but I was able to keep my location info when I needed to connect to a different wireless network to get data.

From RORC NOR 2019 pt1 which applies to the Fastnet Race 2019

1.11.1 RRS 41 – OUTSIDE HELP Rule 41(c) is replaced by: “A boat shall not receive help from any outside source, except (c) help in the form of information which is freely available to all boats, which shall include navigational, weather, tide or current information from any source which is available to all boats whether or not by payment of a fee or subscription, but shall not include any information gathered or the subject of interpretation by, or any advice received from, any source not on board the boat and which is specific to the boat and her situation.”

By way of example and interpretation: downloading charts, weather and/or tidal GRIB files from subscription services, or having such information passed to the boat in its pure form, is permitted but receiving messages or information which is the result of interpretation as it applies to the boat is not permitted.

Awesome -- glad it was just something I missed.

I've deselected both Chart Bounds and Image Bounds in Charts and Chart Bounds in CMap but I'm still getting a pale blue outline of all the charts on the display. Is there some setting I'm missing?

As a workaround for the WWD303 auto delete issue... I made a copy of the file in the CMap manager data directory for the base map charts - after the buggy behaviour deletes it if I manually copy it back it stops deleting it. (As long as you don't click the update button - they you have to restore from the copy again as it will be deleted when you close expedition).

Thanks Nick! -- Nice to know I wasn't going crazy when I couldn't get the race notes to import -- although I will say that Excel 2016+ doesn't always create a CSV that Expedition likes. I've had to open the file in Emacs a few times to fix little things that was making Expedition unhappy.

As Microsoft has updated Excel it doesn't seem to produce CSV files that Expedition is happy with.

the error message of "Unable to Import Race Notes"
It would be really good to have a way to know what the actual failure is.

Sorry if I missed it but how often and when are the expedition models updated?
