Losing GPS position.

Hello, i have some problem losing my position in opencpn.

I have a Truheading Gps/Ais that have been connected to an old computer through a serial9 connection. Now the old computer has broken and I have got a new computer and connected the GPS with an adapter to an USB-port instead.*

First two days it worked perfect, but now it only works around a half day and then it loose GPS. But after restarting the computer it works again for half a day.

I have contacted Truheading and they thought some memory from the USB is getting full and therefore losing the GPS.

I have also been in contact with support on Asus but they had now idea of how to fix the problem.

Is this anything youve heard of earlier, and/or do you have any idea of any solution?

Re: Losing GPS position.

What else are you running on it? Disable all other apps and see if that helps.

Sounds like a memory leak.
