Boat Icon Disappears

I am running the current version of PolarView on an old XP laptop. From time to time, the boat icon disappears, and the program appears to lock up. Zooming in or out fails. The NMEA box shows good GPS data streaming, which is broadcast up to an iPad at the helm. A hard reboot solves the problem.

Something simple, likely attributable to the clunker of a PC?

TIA.

A system "lock up" like this is often attributable to a hardware issue.

That said, make sure you have sufficient *free* RAM (i.e. memory available when Windows is running) and try to completely disable any resident antivirus and "security" products.
