    NavMan, USB. Instant lock (due to custom power setup i made) otherwise it would take 2-3 minutes to lock.

    Garmin GPS35 with Copilot 7 live. The GPS is locked long before my computer ever finishes booting, so it appears instant.

    i have copilot 7 with the copilot "hockey puck" receiver. it usually takes me a minute or so after the computer boots to get a lock. is there anything i can do to get a faster lock or should i just spring for a new receiver?
