Ais xb8000 connection drop

I need help with finding an old topic on xb8000 ais connectivity. I am still having the problem of losing ais targets after a few hours of cruising and having to reboot my pc only for targets to last a few minutes before dropping again. I run ce on a bigbay pc with windows 7 and the xb8000 is connected by the usb cable and on com port 5. When it drops the port configuration page in ce has an error message that I will write down the next cruise. There was a topic for this years ago I can no longer find but I’ve done everything suggested so far to fix the problem. It has returned once I start cruising more than 4 hours but wasn’t happening for a couple seasons.


Yes. Please provide us the error message, or perhaps a screenshot the next time you experience the problem so we can investigate.

And here is a link to the old forum’s topics regarding Vesper in case one of them helps:
