Unfortunately, GPS isn't perfect and sometimes you'll lose your signal during flight. You can either fully lose the signal, where your position becomes unknown; or partially lose it, where usually just your altitude will become unknown.
In the next version of SkyDemon we've done some work to make these temporary losses clearer while examining a track log. In the main map we identify a missing section by connecting the "good" sections with a dotted red line. In virtual radar we clearly show a gap in the line where either a full or partial loss of signal occurred.
This is an enhancement over the current version where losses of signal in a track log are not very clear.
