    Anyone else have this issue with the BU-353

    I just got mine to replace my pharos gps that died on me. I have it plugged in and working but it is SO delayed that its almost useless. My arrow in iguidance travels as much as 1/5 of a MILE behind me. When i come to a stop it takes about 15-20 seconds to come down to 0mph. I thought this would be a better unit that the pharos but this things just about useless to me as it is. Can anyone help me fix this? Do i need to enable WAAS or something?

    Just used sirfdemo to test if the unit had WAAS enabled and of course it didnt. That should fix the issue!
