I exprerience similar connectivity problem (connection loss) with my Wintec 
WBT-300 and my Nokia 6630. Anyone haveing simiar problems with WBT-300.
More over I have noticed the same problem with other applications than LS 
(e.g. TomTom Mobile 5, or AFTrack) - so the connectivity problem lies in the 
receiver not the software.
I sent the WBT-300 back to the vendor - they consider a repair or replace it 
with a new one.

I can also say that I do not experience any problems with my other GPS 
receiver - Nokia LD-3W.

Hi Listers,

I can not use my BT 338 as default GPS receiver on my Nokia 66 30. When ever
I try to do so, LS looses connection after some minutes. Whenn I connect the
receiver after starting LS by searching it, it seem to work properly.

Sometimes, when I go out and start LS and connect the BT 338 it shows 0 of
12 satelites for hours. When I open the GPS-Commands in this case and give
any command, including energy save mode on ., the problem disaperes within
some seconds with a probability of about 90 percent.

Is anybody here, who understands that and perhaps can give an explanation to

Except for this little problems I can advise this receiver very much.
Yesterday I had a accuracy of 0.8 at 10 of 12 satelites inside a Bus inside
the town.
