    GPSiesConnect need to be updated to v0.2.1
    please excuse, but GPSiesConnect have a serious bug in the initial released version - the Problem is caused by the "country update thread" that is running every 7 days (when GPSiesConnect will be started) - for some reason this Thread is causing a LOCK in the Application itself (you see the "receiving data" progress bar all the time) - the only way to quite GPSiesConnect in this case is to make a battery pull

    So please updated your GPSiesConnect installation to v0.2.1 before launching the application again - my apologize.
