Default Garmin Fenix 3 GPS reliability?

Hi guys.
I wasn't sure if I should post this in the Gear section or this section but decided on here since it's GPS specific. I just ordered a Garmin Fenix 3 with my Airmiles before they expire this December. (For those that don't know, any unused airmiles over 5 years old will be gone as of this December). I've been reading lots of online posts about GPS problems with the Fenix 3 especially in areas that have cover such as trees. All posts that I've found seem to be a few years old. Does anyone have a newer Fenix 3 who can tell me if the GPS problems have been fixed? I'm considering selling it when it arrives and getting a Suunto Ambit3 instead which is supposed to be more reliable with it's GPS. Thanks.
