I used mine on Thursday for a half-day ride up and around Mt. Hamilton and Mines Road here in the bay area. Parts of Mt. Hamilton road are within some significant tree cover, and for much of it the sky is only visible in one direction. The tracking feature got 18 messages in, and missed 5 opportunities. (78% success rate) I have it sitting inside my tankbag in an upper pocket, which keeps the proper orientation for the device. FWIW, none of the misses were consecutive, so it got at least one track message in within 20 minutes throughout.
