    i click on the NAV button a wait, what started of as an odd occourance is now constance occurance, the GPG will not lock on any sat's ( i normally get 8 or 9 ) i restared the pc a few times and then i locks onto the sat's , i do not knwo why this happens....

    I do. Same exact thing. After coming out of sleep it won't lock onto any sats until the PC has been restarted.

    i have the same problem but not on waking from sleep mode. I have the Globalsat BU-353 gps receiver and when i turn on the pc it doesn't necessarily lock to satellites every time i open centafuse. instead when i use the gpsinfo app it locks to 8-9 satellites. So when i have this lock problem i first open gpsinfo then close it and enter centrafuse.

    you in SiRF mode or NMEA? If not NMEA then try NMEA mode... there seems to be some issues with SiRF mode and some receivers...
