Garmin 800 coverage in d' woods?

What's your experience with using the Edge 800 in the woods? Are you getting good accurate coverage?

Can't comment on the 800 but I've never had a problem with the 305 and the 705 in the woods.

Perhaps, but a sledgehammer would be a much more effective tool for driving 24" rebar.

I'm not planting IEDs on the trail or anything. Several years ago we'd try Garmins while hiking and couldn't get much in the way of satellite reception and therefore no accuracy whatsoever.
