As others have said, ensure the contacts a damp. I have had interference on High St/Plenty Rd that results in 0bpm readings, but that is the only place in Melbourne that I've had this.

It never cuts out, but it sometimes has me in massive tachycardia. I used to think it was only around certain areas (running across the bridge over the Eastern Freeway on Yarra Bend seems to provide some sort of interference!)
I don't think it's the contacts/wet factor - I sweat plenty and have tried wetting the contacts - and it seems to only really be a problem while running, not riding. When I stop and fiddle around with the positioning, it seems to fix the problem, but then can occur again soon after, and several times on the same outing in some cases. Have fiddled with how tight it is, and the positioning under the bra (but I think it still sometimes moves around due to underwire and the fact that things move and alter pressure areas when you move!) You can only make it so tight before you either run out of strap, or 'strangle' yourself!
Getting to wits end here. Anyone try bras with built in ones? I'm not a keen fan of the idea right now, but wouldn't mind hearing any recommendations/experiences.
