GPS Reception on saturday 2/21/09

Did anyone else have trouble with their GPS on saturday? I was heading south on the 210 (CA) around 7:00am and my GPS could see 10 or so satellites but its like they weren't communicating. It would see the 10 or so satellites and you could see them moving across the screen but they would never "talk". That was most of the morning, then all of a sudden it started working. Now monday morning it came on and got the signals right away like it always does. I didnt change anything. Its the first time I have ever seen this.

I was out in the middle of nowhere Friday around 3pm CST and my GPS lost communication with the satellites... but I had no problems on Saturday.

Seems like I remember reading something about repositioning/reconfiguring/etc due to a collision several days ago, but I can't find anything about it now.. Ron

Mine worked fine but still had trouble locating the Gulches Offroad park... sent me like 5 miles down the wrong road

Mine worked fine all day saturday. That was the only thing that kept me from getting my group lost in Skyline AL.
