Parry Sound = Bermuda triangle?
Thought I'd ask this of my fellow Strommers and cagers who have GPSs. A little anomoly around Parry Sound and can't figure out why.
I go up to PS frequently in summer to get my daughter who works at a Leadership Camp near Nobel. On at least 10 occasions over last few years, and always consistently, on 69/400 in an area approx 30k and extending to about 225/23 k south of PS, my GPS recalculates it's route, denotes as taking me offroad, then, around McDougall Road in PS, re-calculates and put's itself right each time.
Last weekend, I tried it with another GPS, an older Lowrance I have, same thing (without the re-mapping, it just kind of hiccupped).
Both GPS sit on dash, in plain view. Even tried the GARMIN 60Cx with an external antenna - same thing. Same result happened with a borrowed GPS76 CSX, with and without antenna.
Anybody ever run into the same thing? I'm starting to think I should file a flight plan before I go up there again.
