Do you have data connectivity at the time? I don't have a support rep citation, but I believe it requires server interaction to get goody points.

Me too.

(Don't you hate me too posts?)

I also found that I didn't get the mile munching during a 2 hour drive yesterday and assume that it was becasue nav was on.

Certainly in my case the answer was yes. I was totally puzzled as to the cause. My guess at the time was that the road didn't line up with the actual positions. Having checked since, they were pretty accurate.

If it dings but bugs and you lose the connection for a moment, try going back over it, but it may be a bug. I have had one fail three times in a row and another work on the second try. Your mileage may vary.

I have found that road- and goodie-munching sometimes have problems when 3G coverage is poor, but also if your phone is in the process of negotiating a Wifi connection. I often have a wardriving app running, so if I see a worthwhile "goodie" ahead, I will briefly disable Wifi, and that almost always works.

I had this problem today too with about one out of every five cupcakes. In some cases i was able to get the cupcake by changing directions. In one case it was in an intersection and I went over it from all four directions and was not able to get it. In a couple of other cases, every time i approached a cupcake from one direction, I was moved the a parallel neighboring street. and as far as I know, I always had a good data signal.
