Garmin autopause

Does anyone know:

If I run through a tunnel and the Garmin loses reception, does it knock that time and distance off my run? Is it different with autopause on and off?

If I slow down to 2 mph, do I lose the time and distance with autopause (I think the answer is yes, but without autopause it's credited to me).

It seems to take more than a couple of seconds to notice I've stopped or started - I think those seconds get added to my time when I stop, and a couple of metres don't get included in the distance when I start, so a run with much starting and stopping can be quite inaccurately measured. Is that right?

What does anyone think about the value of the feature? I'm quite happy to have it stop recording time if I wait to cross a road or tie my shoelaces, but not so happy to have it discount my efforts when the terrain is unrunnable.

I didn't use it on my first Garmin because that's how it was delivered; on the second it was active, so I thought I'd give it a go.

Got something to say?
