    Are you guys using c:geo? I've found that sometimes after the app is running, I wake up my phone and the distance is way off. I have to just search around blindly until I get an accurate lock. Often times it never locks back on. This only happens when I put my device is standby.

    THat happens to me too some times. I think maybe the GPS is struggling out in the woods a bit.
    It is fun though and it works pretty well for Geocaching.
