What do YOU do when...

What do YOU do when you are under heavy tree cover and the signal isn't totally lost but it doesn't seem to tracking you and the go-to compass stays pointed in the same direction even when you're moving and turning?

sometimes you have to back up to a better location or go ahead to a better one. I have never had any luck just stopping and waiting - and some times a restart seems sucidial.

generally the time my vista stops working is usually about 100 feet from the cache, can count on it like clockwork, so i decode the hint, find the cache and move on to the next one! thats what works best for me

It's happened to me several times. I've just started the GOTO again (without shutting off the etrex and starting again) and it's worked pretty well.

Fortunately signals have stayed pretty strong for me. In the worst cases, I back up and find a spot with good reception, take a bearing and then use a compass to guide me in.
