    i've only recently noticed this bug,

    first of when i turn of te pc i turn it off, no hirbirnation or anything fancy,
    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....

    Anyone else get this problem?

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

        I found this issue and working on a fix...

        I want to get it into RC3, all depends on if Destinator gets it to me today, which is going by fast...

              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...

                  i only use nmea mode because sirf doesn't work at all but it is not stable.

                    I'm noticing that the GPS is very unpredictable in this manner for me as well. I have mine go into hibernation each time, and sometimes when it resumes, it doesn't lock onto any satellites at all in CF. Sometimes it takes a minute or 2, sometimes it's quick, within 30 seconds. I'm not sure the issue on this, but I'll continue to try to get a good repro...

                      a new navigation engine will be in the next release that will hopefully improve the receiver connection issues...

                      it should have the SiRF issues fixed for sure...

                        Thanks for the update, looking forward to it.

                        It's only been recently that it had issues. Like today, when I booted up coming home from work, CF didn't connect to the receiver (I checked XPort and it had GPS info coming in) until I slowed down after about 10 minutes of driving, when I was almost at my destination. I've noticed a lot of time it updates once I slow down or stop after moving for a little while (5+ minutes, maybe?).

                        I figured out that my GPS was interfering with my Bluetooth (both using COM ports), so that was the problem I was having. I have disabled the bluetooth on my phone and it works much better now.

                            I will add code to close GPS port and reopen it on resume from hibernation/standby and I believe this will fix your issue...

                            I don't have the issue, but the extra code will not hurt anything...
