iPhone GPS receiver by Roving rabbit
My iPhone has a GPS receiver and I'm impressed by its performance. What I like is the fast initialization with the help of the cell phone signal, and the ability to directly plot its data on a moving map that is updated through the cell phone system. After walking around with the iPhone for several months I've been able to find and go anywhere I wanted to go. As usual there are some features...

SPOT upgrade by [email protected][_2_]
http://www.findmespot.com/upgrade/ Anyone know if it is is really worth bothering to upgrade from the original SPOT to the SPOT2. It just doesn't look like much of an upgrade to me regarding features. And I hate AAA batteries. However, I'm willing to listen to a good argument in favor of the new unit.

AMOD AGL 3080 GPS receiver for sale - Canada. by Alan Browne
I have bought a marketing test stock (8 units) of these receivers. They are expensive in Canada, so I bought some from a couple sellers in the US to resell here. The prices in the US are attractive, esp. with the strong CAD $, but S&H just about kills every good deal whether on ebay or from online stores. (Free shipping in the US, but to Canada it's $30 or more). Yours for CAD$95 - new,...

NMEA, latitude and longitude by Nick Hopton[_2_]
It appears that if I set my eTrex H to display Ordnance Survey grid coordinates this causes the instrument to output NMEA latitude and longitude positional data as Ordnance Survey latitude and longitude rather than as WGS84 latitude and longitude. There is a difference of about 110 metres between the two, so this is important. Should this be happening? Any advice or comments would be...

Will soldering work affect the performance of GPS RFIC by Johnson[_2_]
I am testing a new GPS RFIC with my colleagues. The evolution board falls to the ground and the antenna connector is broken from the PCB. It will take at least a few days to get some new RFIC, and I really don't want the tests to be delayed. Our technician said he could solder a new antenna jack back to the PCB and everything will be fine. However, I am not sure if the soldering work may...

GPS vs signs by Steve[_6_]

looking for a high performance portable antenna by Johnson[_2_]
I am using the u-blox ANN-MS antenna for test. http://www.u-blox.com/en/gps-antennas/gps-antennas/ann-ms.html •Built-in low noise amplifier with 27 dB gain and 1.5 dB noise figure However, I am not very satisfied with its performance. I would like to go for an antenna with higher gain, less noise figure, and better not too big. Could anybody please recommend me one? Thank you.
