During testing of the GPS Bug DeepWater, one of our engineers was driving around with the tag on his car roof. Rounding a corner, the tag slid off the car and onto the road. He pulled over and walked back to retrieve the tag. To his horror, a 16-wheel truck ran over the tag before he could get there. However, the tag survived with just a few surface scratches. Subsequent depth testing to 200 metres and position fixing showed performance was as good as new.
