I've got a Garmin GPS 18 USB. (18, not 18x) It's inside. I'm not surprised
when it fades out.
At first, I thought it was just giving a garbage location while trying to
find some satellites, but now that I've plotted it...
It took about 7 hours to fly from here to the south pole. The latitude is a
straight line. The longitude looks like an exponential. Then it spiraled
around the south pole at lat -89.995877. It was there for a couple of days
before I power cycled it. The trip back home was quick.
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
