  • Slow updates – We very much like this GPS, but it does not seem to be updating its fix quickly. We’ve set the NMEA output rate to 20 Hz GGA, and the output does not change rapidly unless the unit is moving fast. We’ve checked and pinning is disabled. We have tried both car and pedestrian modes. We also updated the firmware to the high-dynamic range version. It appears that although the messages are streaming fast, the actual position is updating very slowly, perhaps on the order of several seconds per fix. Even walking around with the unit does not induce rapid motion.

No public wish lists :(
