Correction interuption and resume

Hi, When using the precision level subscription and Penmap on a Galaxy S2; if I get an interruption i.e. tree cover and it causes loss of gps signal (not loss of internet), the system drops the correction down to the sub meter accuracy i.e. RTX correction. When moving back into the open it does not return to the VRS Now correction. If I shut the system down and restart it (log out of pen map and disconnect the DA1 from both the battery and the device) it still won't resume the VRS Now correction level i.e. in Penmap it reports differential rather than fixed position, and we are at sub meter accuracy.

The only solution to the issue seems to be to completely shut down the device, log out of everything, and disconnect power form the DA1, wait for a long time, then restart, and log back in, and try again. It may then work or may not.

This is a frustrating issue. While its good that the correction service identifies the interruption to the GPS signal and makes a fix to keep the system working, its no good to then spend 1/2 hour + trying to get back to the precision level of accuracy.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
