I had something similar happen to me last week (Wed 2012-9-19) during a 11day off-road trip, the montana simply stopped tracking for about 3hrs. No issues prior to or after that event. I was running the fairly robust firmware v4.2 at the time. My AMPS rugged mount is direct wired into my battery, so unit automatically turns on when placed into the cradle. I typically always use tracks but during that ride segment I was using a route. Track log should still work though.
Kidding not aside, perhaps the 50th space wing
was doing some sort of gps sat upgrade for a brief period of time???
