Switc hes location

Open cpn current version was running fine on my panasonic cf-53 notebook windows 7 then all of a sudden started to switch around my location showing me where I am and then a different location (same place every time) where I have cruised a year ago. It jumps back and forth between the 2. Before I replace my gps receiver just wondering if something else might be wrong... thanks

If you run the VDR plugin with, a gpx file containing a one year old track, at the same time as your gps, it could lead to what you are observing.
