I have a similar Issue with the Garmin Vista HCx. Occasionally I 
observe, that the GPS position is way off the known road/path I am on. 
The satellite accuracy is high +-5m.

When I switch the device off and on again, it positions me right where I 
am supposed to be. So it seems to accumulate some sort of error in its 
internal calculations and needs the occational reset when it is "going 
wrong with great confidence"
