      I don't think this will be an issue with the SiRFstar III GPS receiver
      Scott has picked for this device. I've never succeeding in getting
      this GPS to lose signal during normal operation (on the floor of my
      car, in the basement, under trees--doesn't seem to phase it).

      Nothing like the old yellow eTrex units that have to see the sky to
      get a signal!
