BU-353S4 causing windows10 to crash every time

I'm running the latest version of OPenCPN 5.0.0 on a Windows 10 Home laptop.

System and program run find w/out GPS

I followed the OpenCPN instructions to add the GPS puck. The good news is that it works.

Bad news is that w/in 60 seconds the entire system crashes with a Windows10 blue restart screen.

If I keep the puck in the USB port or add it, same thing, BSOD crash.

If I take the puck out of the USB Port, OpenCPN runs fine.

Any ideas?

Thanks and sorry if this is an inappropriate protocol. I am in Guadeloupe and have barely any internet....

Re: BU-353S4 causing windows10 to crash every time

I believe this is a configuration problem.

Since there are several ways to configure please give details step by step of what you have done and what your connection settings are for the gps.

Also please attach your ini file and just the last recording of your log file (one where it crashed).

Help to do this -look in FAQ of the manual and read (items at the top). how to attach files. Also hit the ? in the toolbar and read how to get the ini and log files.

Thank you fro the quick reply and sorry for my tardy one (internet issues)

I followed these configuration instructons https://opencpn.org/wiki/dokuwiki/do...rted:gps_setup

The only adjustment I made was to select the COM port and to choose 4800 bit/second

Obviously it works not. There are several lines in your logfile saying:
4:31:34 AM: NMEA input device open failed: COM5


Either you have a bad driver or the connection cable is damaged.

Re: BU-353S4 causing windows10 to crash every time

Before trying opencp with the puck, did you confirm that the puck is working using their software, it used to be "gpsinfo".
Once you know the puck is working that way, shutdown gpsinfo, and find the com port being used. The start opencpn and configure the connection. Do not run 2 gos programs at the same time. This is shown in the documentation.

You are not describing in detail what you have done. For us to help you must take rhe time.

Also never remove usb from port without ejecting it, or you may damage it. This is electronics!
