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"
