GPS connection closes itself (ArcMap 9)

I'm currently working on a system which needs vehicles tracked by GPS. We're getting the coordinates from the internet and putting them into a table as X/Y values, and are planning on displaying them through the GPS Connection Setup's "Simulate GPS connection using point or line data".

This works absolutely fine, but when I open the connection it only stays open for about four or five intervals, then closes itself.

I'm basically wanting this to stay open whenever the map is open, or at least make it so the user has to start it and it keeps going until they stop it.

Anyone got any ideas? I'm using ArcMap 9.0.
