haven't experienced the same, but one thing is a little confusing: You are mentioning that "the blue LED" comes back to life, but that one should be for Bluetooth and not GPS (would be white LED flashing twice).
Just in case, have you checked the COM port settings? Maybe something changes the internal COM port assignment, messing with the auto-recognition of the internal receiver?!
Here is the default:
GPS Program port: COM2
GPS Hardware port: COM4
Baud rate: 57600
Access: Set flag in "Manage GPS automatically"
Hope this helps.
You're right, should be the white LED. All GPS settings are as they should be (COM2, COM 4, 57600 bd, check box "Manage GPS automatically" marked).
@ phylax: Mobile TV player was only an example. Last time GPS recognition turned off after I extracted the CAB files from the ExtROM. Before that it happenend when my nav sw crashed. So my humble guess is it has nothing to with those apps at all. It appears to be a bug, but which?
Thanks to both of you for your advice.
: After running a little tool (AutoDetectGPS 1.0, see attachment) GPS was found on port COM2 @ 2400 bd, and the white LED is back again; my nav system detects GPS on COM4 @ 57600 bd as usual. What the heck ... ?
: According to the Dutch board eten-benelux.support.pocketinfo.nl - discussions on GPS failures on the DX
900 WWE 373 and NLD 365 - it actually is a GPS software bug
and sometimes a cold boot (reset hole + power button) helped. afaik they are also working on a patch to be published soon, but my Dutch and google translation are insufficient. Meanwhile you can test a GPS-patch dated Dec. 2008 which is supposed to do the trick, too (see attachment).
