      That's one reason I've decided to go watch free. My garmin looses signal every time I go under trees. It then comes back with stupid 11 min mile pace. I finally decided to go back to basics!! Maybe you could try resetting it back to factory settings; then do another satellite search!

      Taking the time to lose the stress is good for everybody. When you return you have a fresh perspective. I have two teens, and know exactly how you feel.
