AlphaOp Posted April 19, 2003 Share Posted April 19, 2003 I was out on a little adventure today and I took my GPS. For the first hour or so of my hike, I turned the unit on and off, marking a few waypoints to save battery power. Then, later, for some odd reason, the unit had a ton of trouble getting satellite locks. It would get one satellite, or two, but the others it would have problems with. I wasn't patient enough to let it run for more then three minutes. Has anyone else ever noticed this? It might have been that the satellites were in just the right position, combined with the terrain, that caused a "black-out" for a time period. http://thealphaoperator.tripod.com Quote Link to comment
