I had this happen to me in the past.  It was solved by a repair job from
Argent Data Systems --- apparently the USB plug in the GTRANS cable developed
some kind of problem and needed to be replaced.

My symptoms were as you described --- sporadic 
"This accessory is not supported" error messages at first, but later complete 
failure of my D700 to see any GPS data at all.

Drop Scott a line and ask about it.

Mine continued to function for a few weeks after I started to see the error
message, but quickly progressed to completely non-functional.  It was entirely
a mechanical issue with the USB connector on the cable.
