I have the tripNav as well and can verify that it (eventually) loses 
touch with kismac, although the length of time is quite variable. It 
can work for hours sometimes but generally I have to quit kismac and 
restart it. On a long trip recently I kept my "kimap" files in a folder 
in the dock to facilitate this process. When I noticed that the 
location was no longer being updated I would quit kismac and restart it 
by reloading the appropriate kismap file.

It is a bit tiresome but I figured it was just something that would 
work out eventually. I was using the most recent ftdi drivers.
