Has anyone had an issue with being able to pick up speed (GPS, not wheel sensor), but distance at the start of ride? After turning it on and giving it ample time to locate satellites, I start rolling and am able to immediately register speed. Distance then takes a few minutes before it starts accumulating and I loose some of the distance traveled during the delay. It is a problem that developed a couple of weeks ago after using it without any issues for a year. I thought it may be related to a firmware problem and Garmin customer service said it may be corrupted, but after reinstalling it twice, it still occurs. Any ideas?

Looks like I was lucky that Garmin Connect actually did not offer to upgrade mine from 2.80 to 3.00 last night...

Edit: needed to update manually, currently up and running with the new firmware fine.

As for the other woes, comment #12 pretty much sums it all up, probably helps the 2 unlucky guys above as well:
