    got some more info on this freezing issue.... it freezes with FreeDrive on for a while too... which now leads me to believe that its something in the core of the code of D3. MM and FreeDrive are both derived from the same code, so now what im gonna try is to leave just the CarPC running with RR running for a day or 2. If it doesnt freeze, then its 99% a D3 issue, and i might have to format the PC and start fresh, cause i dont know what the software conflict could be at this point. (its probably way beyond me)

    I have the same problem. When I installed MapMonkey and it freezed 2 or 3 times I installed FreeDrive. Two days later this freezes also. I also thought about D3-SDK being the cause. The CarPC does NOT crash when MapMonkey and FreeDrive are not running.
    This happens on my HomePC and CarPC. I don't think that reinstalling the system helps. Although my HomePC isn't that clean, the CarPC is. I just installed required software. Didn't experiment. Didn't install any OS-Optimizations. I'm somehow sure that it's D3-SDK (it can't be the launcher which I have to use for FrodoPlayer, can it?)

    I am also running the latest Mapmonkey, the PC does not freeze, MAPMONKEY looses contact with the GPS. The cute little blue arrow that shows the direction you are driving turns into a red 'x' after about 10 minutes. The rest of the PC runs fine, I can minimize Mapmonkey and run winpamp normally. I re-installed MM several times, but still the same happens. I think it may have to do with the USB bus I suspect. When I re-start MM I get contact again for a few minutes b4 I loose the GPS again.
