    Do you need the messages or just a way to change your unit? If it is the latter, you can just get a program caller sirfinfo.

    I need to write a c program to trigger my gps module into low power mode.

    Q1, Could somebody check for me is this a complete steps to make the push to fix work?

    1) I'll receive a fix from the gps modele in nmea mode.

    2) convert those data into into ecef x,y,z

    3) setserialport MID100 to switch to sirf from nmea.

    4) i reckon im in sirf more now. put item (2) ecef x,y,z into initialize data source (msg ID 128)

    5) set development data on MID105

    6) active push to fix with command set trickle power parameters (ID 151)

    7) set max. sleeptime and sattellite search time with command low power acquisition parameters (ID167)

    Q2, if I want to receive the next fix, I need to switch to nmea again with command 100? when is the right time to switch back to nmea.

    Q3, in command 167, what is the purpose of the sattelite search time?

    Q4, btw, where can we get a complele guideline for sirf bside

    Q5, when we need Cold/warm/hot start?
