Hi Gary,

The loss of data can be caused by a loose cable connection, so check all cable connections are secure, and check the data cable for any signs of damage.

Data loss can also be caused by a voltage drop, so try adding some power when the problem occurs by either cranking engines or switching to fresh batteries.

Hope that helps!

Happy New Year,
