On the unit that has the waypoints and tracks insert a sd card and save the waypoints and tracks to the sd card. Then use that sd card to restore the tracks and waypoints on to the other unit.

That sounds like it's interference from another electronic device. Is this when the motors are running? Are any other electronic devices on at the same time? If so power them down and check again.
