          Thanks for the usefull info!


          Before you get ME (not a newb anymore) to stfu, you'll have to do better!

          Things I find important:

          - reception quality (has something to do with start times, but certainly not everything)

          - other GPS's that haven't been tested (OEM modules)

          Thanks anyway ;-)

            JS > Sorry about the statement i made. I wasnt including everyone in that. I was just looking for some good info on GPS in the forum and i saw the same question asked over and over. And when it took only a few minutes to find the answer of most those questions on google i got a little ****ed. My bad, i appologize for that. If you look again you will see i retracted my statement since i was in the wrong.

            I am still looking for the other usefull info you look at when choosing a receiver. If you have any links you would like to contribute please do so. thanks

                No GlobalSat BT-338, no Rayming/TripNav MR-350 - so no lastest and greatest either

                By the way, are those GlobalSat / Rayming / TripNav the same company or do online vendors just mess them up?

                        In my humble opinion there really is no need for a comparison chart like that anymore - or at least much less need for it then when the above was published (in 2005).

                        Then (early 2005) there were significant differences in performance of GPS receivers based on various chips. Today (2008) any new GPS receiver you buy has pretty much the same sensitivity and time to first fix. The differences are not as great as they used to be.
