I just throw mine in the front pocket of my enduro jacket - don't even know it's there.

One thing that did happen yesterday has me a bit perplexed.

I have a Garmin 276c mounted on the bike. At two different times yesterday the GPS seemed to lose it's position, presumably after I hit the OK button of the Spot. The speed was still reading correctly in the display, but the map froze up and showed me about 300 miles from my correct position. Both times I simply rebooted the GPS and it went back to working correctly.

So I'm wondering if there's a conflict between the two devices or if this was just a coincidence. I've never had that happen with my 276 before yesterday. The Spot recorded all of my check in's correctly. This obviously calls for more testing before winter arrives here on Monday - at least that's what I'm telling my SO.

Anyone else have this happen?
