> Does it have "simulation mode"?

I think so, but I sure didn't intentionally tell it to simulate a trip down 
there.

Searching the documentation gets two hits on "simulation".  One says it might 
ignore the location you provide it if it's in simulation mode.  The other 
says that when it tells you the type of fix (2D, 3D...), you can't tell if 
that's a simulated fix.

While it was flying south, it did say the fix was invalid.  But it gave me 
something in the lat/long fields and since I was logging things I logged it 
too.
