      Hi

       

      I have added a APRSDIGI section to my BPQ32 config, and it works fine for about 5 minutes and then BPQ locks up and I have to kill it.

       

      I thought it sensible to perhaps cut down the baud rate and the number of NMEA sentences being emitted from the GPS to reduce the parsing overhead. Which sentence(s) does BPQ utilised for the position please?

       

      Many thanks in advance.

          Hi John


          Changed the GPS to emit RMC sentences only and it still crashes. BPQ console shows GPS Ok, so it's seems to start parsing fine. DLL reports version 6.0.7.1.

           

          Below is a sample of the data if that's any help.

            This should fix the problem with using a GPS with BPQAPRS and a possible hang when receiving APRS Messages.

              https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/31910649/bpq32.zip

              bpq32.dll must go in Windows/System on 32 bit versions of Windows and Windows/SysWOW64 on 64 bit verssion.

                Hi John


                I found the existing file in windows\system32 so that's where I've put the new one. The version now reports as 6.7.0.3 so it seems happy with that and no crashes as yet.


                Many you very much for the quick turnaround.
