Java Exception Errors The app works but about every 3 seconds I get the following error message and have to press "Yes" to continue. Here's the message: An error has occurred in sub:main_gpgsv_fields(java line:3099)java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: length=40;index=51 Will give 5-stars when this is fixed.

Java error pop-ups and crashing The app does receive GPS data from my BU-353-S4 USB GPS however the app constantly throws java errors and also crashes very often. If it didnt crash or throw errors (which by the way also stops it from sending data to google maps) I'd give it 5 stars as it does exactly what it says it does but due to the crashing and java error pop-ups I'm giving it 1 star. The developers website is also offline so who knows if it will ever be updated. Try the free demo product first. I thought that maybe the paid version might possibly have fixed the bugs found in the demo but it appears to be exactly the same.

Works on Pipo S2 w BU-353 USB GPS but... It works, but I get the following error quite often: An error has occurred in sub:main_gpgsv_fields (java line: 3099) java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException:length=40; index=51 I can hit continue and it will go on for a while longer and then come back up. Maybe the dev has a fix?
