Yes you are right, there is nothing wrong with your GPS unit. As you guessed, it's a problem due to loss of satellite reception.
The more GPS satellites that your Alpine unit can see, the more accurate it becomes in being able to pinpoint your position. However when your GPS encounters an obstruction, such as a building that blocks line of sight to the satellite, then accuracy suffers.

I have several GPS devices.... including phones, fitbit, handheld hiking GPSs, etc....
At times.... my GPSs units shows I've been wandering in circles.... even left untouched on a table.
