      Can you describe why you are manually transmitting so often that the question becomes bothersome?  If you have a GPS enabled or ME is centered, it does not ask.  Otherwise, that is the programmed mechanism for manually moving your location, drag until your new location is centered and push Transmit.

      In all expected normal operation, manual transmissions should be so rarely necessary that this has not been an issue for most users.  When testing new radio interfaces or such, simply center on ME and Transmit to your heart's content without being bothered by the question.  Once done testing, restore your Preferred View (you did Save one, right?) and quit the manual transmissions.

      Yes 64 bit. I woke up this morn and checked aprsis32 and map was empty except for ME. Was not responding.
      So I installed the Sabrent SBT-FTDI USB to serial converter, changed com port and it's working again. Time will tell.
      Is there a setting with aprsis32 to flush the memory automatically?
      Also I have ME off center due to my location so I am positioned NE on the map. Is there a way to get rid of the annoying "move ME to center?" When I manually transmit?

      I would have to say it is an issue with the PCI serial card and Win 7, Especially if it is 64-bit. I have found several issues with those cards at work on Win7 when they worked fine in the same PC with XP on it.

      I am using a Dell desktop with a express PCI serial data card Win7 & and pk-232. Works well for 1/2 day and program stops responding. I sometime find a blank screen with only ME on the map. Other time all stations appear to be ok but program will not transmit location via pk-232.
      I went thru all the power settings & changed the always on, don't sleep etc.
      Anyone else have this issue? I am sure it's a Dell issue as I have Echolink on the same model computer & have an issue where it stops responding. I have it restart every 24 hr and then it works fine.
      I have a USB to serial converter I may try to determine if it's the PCI card or Dell design issue.
