As part of a diagnosis, I would certainly try your suggestion to see if you
can reproduce the fault.

Before taking it apart, you might also want to see if you can talk to the
unit from a terminal emulator when it hangs to try to identify whether it's
a USB/Tracker/USB driver/SatPC32 related problem.

  Hi all,

Lately my LVB Tracker (USB) has been stopping in the middle of a pass. 
It does not happen all the time, but lately it has been happening more 
When this happens I have to turn the G-5500 off/on then restart SatPC32. 
Has anyone experienced this with their tracker? I wonder if I should 
remove the USB chip and use the RS-232 port.
